Picnic in the Park in Warrenton

Cool Slideshows!

After we left Norfolk, we stopped in Warrenton, Virginia to visit with my sister and her family for a couple of days. They are also in the middle of moving. They were living in Bulgaria and after a short vacation in the states will be moving to Kiev. So, we obviously don't get to see them very much.


We really had really terrible luck, though. He hit unbelievable traffic trying to leave town on Saturday. I know those of you who know the area are all nodding, but this traffic was even worse than the norm! Seriously, it took us 3 hours to get about 40 miles from Norfolk! It was really really bad! So, we got to Warrenton really late and didn't have time with them the first night that we got there. We did have Sunday, Father's Day, to be with them and we had a nice picnic in the park, which is where these pictures are from. The second day we had planned to spend with them, their daughter ended up sick and we weren't able to spend a lot of time with them that day at all. So we didn't end up having nearly enough time with them at all, but we didn't have the option of staying any longer, either. I appreciated the time we did have. All the kids got alone great! And it's always so fun to see the cousins playing together. I got to visit with my sister at least for a little bit. I really miss her. Vance found a snake (I swear he's like a snake magnet!) and even Nutmeg got to come (even though we found a tick on her later, YUCK!) It was a fun day. I love them all so much and wish we could see them more often. I'll post a few more pictures later of our father's day dinner we shared together.
