Weekend Trip to Richmond

Nate and I constantly talk about taking more weekend trips, but it doesn't happen often. We decided a week ago to spend the 4th of July in Richmond. It was a lot of fun, and I was surprised by how many things we found to do there. Nate was off work on Friday so we woke up early. We drove straight to Pony Pasture Park (well not straight there thanks to our GPS). The park is situated on the James River. It is pretty shallow and there are rocks peppered across the river. We packed our lunch and ate on the rocks. 

 Piper and Dexter stayed in this spot most of the day and collected rocks and shells.

 My little adventurer swam around and discovered all kinds of boulders and under water treats.
 His goal was to swim through as many rapids as he could.

 Emmy Ly got a little tired of being on the rocks so Nate found a little place for her to splash around.
On Saturday we went to Belle Isle and swam around there as well. It was a great mini vacation as the kids called it.


  1. so happy for you to have such an awesome place to enjoy....I'm sure Nate imagines just a wee bit of our Muak Lek waterfalls (the 3 or 4 different sites) day trips and this looks wonderful....hidey places in the rocks under water, water smoothed stones, why can't school be in the water? :-0 Thanks for sharing.

  2. That sounds like so much fun! Asher is getting so big!
