Happy 4th of July! We’re growing up quickly over here. Life is busy busy busy with these two kiddies. Now that JJ is moving and communicating (though not really talking yet) we feel more like a family and less like a couple with babies in tow. That’s been the biggest transition for us. We do more kid-focused things and less hanging out at coffee shops, though we usually make it out to Richmond festivals. Marguerite continues to amaze us with her patience and love for her brother, and JJ is a little comedian and budding musician (he can even grove to the easy listening piping in to the grocery store!). Here are some favorite moments from our month around town.
Marguerite wanted to make an American flag to cheer on Team USA in the World Cup.
JJ with one of the new murals in our neighborhood from the Richmond Mural Project.
JJ and I at the Build a Better Block festival in Richmond’s Church Hill neighborhood. (Love my new Warby Parker prescription sunglasses!)
Scott and I snuck out for a date that started with amazing cocktails at Belmont Food Shop, complete with homemade tonic. Craft cocktails are hitting Richmond hard right now.
Afterwards we went to the top of city hall and caught this sunset view of Richmond with the beautiful, gothic executive office building in the foreground and Thomas Jefferson-designed Virginia state capitol in white to the right.
