So, part two of our West Virginia trip was a visit with John and Christal, Nicky, Nathan, and big brother Victor. Victor and Ada were born just about a month apart, so Christal and I had our first pregnancies together, three kabillion miles apart, and we have seen ridiculously little of each other in the mean time. This was our big opportunity to meet each others’ two youngest children (each).
We began by exploring the totally cool sciencey (what’s the matter, spell-check, am I too playful for you?) stuff at the Clay Center in Charleston where the kids had lots of hands-on fun:
Then we followed our friends almost home, but detoured to an RV park instead where they very graciously paid our way for the night, and spent hours hanging out, eating, and playing with us. It was perfect. There was a creek yards away that we fully intended to investigate, but somehow forgot because we were too busy running around in the grass and making burgers. Here’s my dear friend with my dear daughter:
And we couldn’t leave without running around somewhere wet, right? Check out the super cool dragon at this park!
We love and miss this family, and hold you in our hearts as we go:
