Placeholder for Monday

We spent all day with both kids in Richmond, plus significantly more time in the car than we expected getting there and home due to lots of stupid drivers! We met Cheryl and Lin at Maymont's nature center, where we ate lunch overlooking the wildlife park, then we walked through the park (the bear was hiding, but we saw the bison, sheep, goats, pigs, deer, lynx, fox, raptors, and lots of local residents like frogs, turtles, and herons) and visited the Japanese garden with its waterfalls and flowers.

Then we went with Cheryl to Dogwood Dell to see the Henley Street Theatre and Richmond Shakespeare perform The Complete Works of William Shakespeare (Abridged) and afterward to Mexico for dinner, where we also watched the end of the Costa Rica-Greece World Cup game while eating lots of chips, salsa, and various enchiladas and burritos. We came home the long way around so we could drop Daniel off in College Park. Here are a couple of photos from Maymont and one from the Shakespeare, more soon!
