hot summer!

We took the kids down to the river last weekend for some good, old, white trash fun. I know I overuse that word, and hopefully everyone knows it's just me poking fun of myself and openly admitting that I do have some pretty low class tendencies. (;

We stopped by the Virginia War Memorial before heading to the river. I had seen it many times, but never stopped to look. I have a list of about 10 things in Richmond, that are free, that I want to see and do with Geof. and the kids. We love that about Richmond.

Can't get a serious shot outta Cole. Much like his daddy-o.

oops, did I take that?

We weren't very prepared for this little jaunt to the river. The August heat has pretty much zapped all form of energy and brain power from me. No swimsuits (hence, Dayne and Cole in their underwear, and Junie naked), a paper bag full of food (that very early on tore open from the condensation of our water bottle), no towels (I never bring towels, so I won't blame that on being ill prepared)...BUT, the kids had a bawl getting as muddy as ever while Geof. and I watched from a distance. There was a dense layer of bugs right above the water where we swam. I'm sure my kids (and the happy ducks who happily engorged themselves) got more than a mouthful. yuck.
