HHD Day and Weekend Recap
The Science Museum of Virginia with Nana and Pop. We had hoped to be able to go to BG or hiking, but, as with the year she died, the day was hot and muggy and we really didn't want to spend it outdoors in the blazing sun.
We explored for a bit, watched a couple of rats named Barbara and Irene play basketball (Lil informed us it was "rasketball" hee hee), explored a bit more and then went to watch "Flight of the Butterflies" in the IMAX theater. I was surrounded by butterflies. :o)
We had dinner with Nana and Pop and then headed for home.
Pork, Peanut, and Pine Festival going on at Chippokes Plantation. We decided that sounded like a fun way to spend our Saturday, so we met at the pixie boat, released our balloons for Hannah (the silver balloon was the one with a mind of its own this year), and got ready to board the boat.
The grounds were beautiful. Look at this crepe myrtle tunnel.
We were all hot, tired, drenched and dusty by the time we headed for home.
I had put off a number of chores and knew the dogs were in desperate need of a haircut and bath. Since I was already gross I figured, why not.
Today has been spent relaxing and doing more gf research. I'm determined to not mess up and accidentally gluten my honey. We're moving closer to a diagnosis (he sees the GI for a preop appointment tomorrow) so I'm working on starting to clear the gluten out of the house. This is a tough one as it's in practically everything...
From the abnormal of "celebrating" a heaven day, back to the "normal" of daily life. So it goes.
