We stopped at the Shortpump Outdoor Mall where Addie LOVED playing on the train. She kept peaking out of the window and saying, "Heeelllloo!"
We spent a good part of the day at Maymont Park. We brought boxed lunches from a local favorite, Sally Belle's Kitchen. They were adorable and tasty too!
Addie got to see all kinds of animals; horses, sheep, goats, foxes, owls, chickens, pigs, and even bears! But her very favorite were the "fishies". She especially liked feeding some her leftovers.
Later on, for my birthday, John took me to pick out a new purse. Then we had dinner with our closest pals in Charlottesville at a yummy Indian restaurant. After that, the party continued with girls night at our favorite yogurt place, Sweet Frog. It was a fun day!
On Wednesday the party continued when we got a surprise visit from Dawn, John's mom. It was fun to spend the day with her at some of our favorite spots like Cook-Out and Greenleaf Park. It was a warm day so Addie stripped down and played in the water with Grammy!
It was a pretty great week and it's safe to say I felt sufficiently loved. I guess if I have to get older, it's okay, as long as I get to be surrounded by family and friends!
