Spring Fling

In April we enjoyed a visit from Richard's parents.  We always like to take the opportunity to see the sights around here--and there are a lot of sites to see!
We started the week with a Richmond tradition--dinner and a movie in Carytown.  There is always something/someone interesting to see when you walk around down there.  Plus movies only cost $2 and there is a Wurlitzer organ concert before the show on Saturday nights!

Next it was off to DC.  We parked the car outside of town and rode the subway in because now we know how to do that. 

We checked out the Air and Space Museum.  It was very crowded because it was spring break and it was FREE.

We dined on pretzels from a street vendor outside the capitol.  Not great, but we were in a hurry.

We visited James Lankford's office.  Evidently he drew a high number in the lottery because his office is HARD to find!

We tried out his desk--he was in Oklahoma at the time!

After a private tour of the capitol we headed to an early dinner in Chinatown.  Lucky for us it was happy hour so our food was half price.  If I could remember the name of the restaurant I would recommend it...

This is the staircase in the restaurant--like I said, we were lucky our meals were half price!

The night before Easter we went to see the Flying Squirrels play ball.  They had a petting zoo outside.  It was hard to get Audra to go into the stadium.  Nothing says "Easter" like rubbing the belly of a tiny pig...

Take me out to the ball game...

I don't care if I never get back...

Yea!  They won in extra innings!

Easter Sunday--all dressed up for church

Then back home for an Easter egg hunt. 

Love those azaleas!

One last meal together and then it was time to say goodbye.
Until next time...
