After a week in Bath and a week outside DC (which were added to the trip when I discovered daycare was closed for a 2 week summer break) it was time for the main event finally! (The weekend of the 7th was my original travel plan). My good friend John got married on a farm outside Charlottesville. John and his then girlfriend came out to visit a few years ago and she was awesome so not surprisingly their wedding was adorable, fantastic and a ton of fun!
The setting was gorgeous and the Free Union Fireworks show that followed the wedding was one to rival Dr. Bill's.
The last few days in No.Virginia I squeezed in a lot of visiting with friends and family we had missed the first week. There were still dear friends I missed this trip so it looks like we'll have to head out again soon :-) One day we met up with friends at Frying Pan Park. Matthew was not keen on getting his picture taken, but enjoyed the tractors:
We tried to take a group picture of the kids and all of our shots are a hilarious mix of kids looking in all directions as shared on the Facebook. As I scrolled through mine, you can see Matthew look over at a friend (who was sticking his tongue out), decide to stick his tongue out, and then look back over just to make sure his new friend saw:
We stayed with Uncle Matt for this part of our visit. The kids enjoyed his house, and mostly his toys. Matthew went through Uncle Matt's bookshelf and pointed out the toys he wanted for his birthday. Catherine was pretty happy just loading this gun:
They also enjoyed the bouncy animals near Uncle Matt's apartment:
We ended our visit with a trip for free Slurpees. We thought 3 would be plenty but Catherine has quite the sweet tooth.
