Last weekend we went to Franklin County to visit my parents. It was a quick end-of-summer visit; the kids got to close out the summer swimming in Grammy and Gramps’s pool and to catch up with cousin Gabby. (Visiting from Canada!)
So these photos are technically from last week. More like 39.5 instead of 40.
A photo of my children, once a week, every week, in 2016.
David / It’s cooler in the mountains than it is in Richmond, so we were so glad to be able to wring a few more swimming days out of this summer. David had a great time swimming with cousin Gabby. Especially jumping with their floats.
Mary Virginia / And then there’s Mary Virginia. Do you see her back there? Reading a book, fully-clothed and clear of the action. That didn’t keep her from intermittently yelling, “STOP SPLASHING YOU GUYS!”
Thomas / In the morning, Grammy whipped cream, vanilla, and a bit of sugar for our coffee. I gave Thomas a dollop; he was pleased.
