richmond visit

yesterday, we spent the day in richmond, virginia, visiting our friend chris and his lovely girlfriend lianna. we drove up just in time to enjoy some delicious brunch made by chris. he works at this little vegetarian restaurant called ipanema. the food was awesome. i want some more right now! we ordered the blintzes, tofu scramble, biscuits and gravy, and an ipanada.

after brunch we went to maymont gardens and walked around. it was really pretty there, but it was also way too hot outside. we were all sweaty and gross afterwards, haha. we'll have to go back again, when the weather is better.

chris, malcolm, and danny feeding the koi fish some cheerios and star shaped puffs. those koi were huge. malcolm loved watching them swim all around.

malcolm had fun walking through the bamboo with alanna

this fountain was really cool. but the water wasn't flowing down it? too bad.

we also went to a super cool toy store called world of mirth. i left my camera in the car, i wish i had taken some photos inside. it was a great store, and was full of lots of unique and specialty toys and collectibles. i could have spent longer in it, there sure was a lot to see. thanks guys, for showing us around town. we had a nice trip.


  1. Wow that place is beautiful!!

    And yes, that is what was disappointing. I know I shouldn't think that way because it will stress my body out but I can't help it. Thank you for being so awesome! :)

  2. you always seem to go to the coolest places
