more fun from our VA weekend!

We squeezed in lots of fun on our quick trip back home....

We were planning to meet some friends at a park about 30 min away but Abbi desperately needed a longer nap. So we drove the beautiful parkway for a while and then ended up at the "star" for which our city is so famous.

Enjoying the view of the city (I'm glad I stayed in the car with Abbi because my heart would have stopped if I had seen the girls so close to the edge! You can't tell from the pic, but it is a LONG way down!)
The girls were so excited to finally be able to see the star up close because they had seen it many times in the distance driving around the city. It looks really cool at night when it is lit up.

But I think they were most excited about the leaves! We regretfully don't have any big trees in our yard so whenever we go to VA they go crazy playing with all the leaves!

Then we met up with our friends at the park:
The girls loved the different kind of see-saw!
And the swing that they could ride together
The BIG kids had fun on the see-saw also -- HA!
Gavin is Mark's best friend from high school. Isn't his daughter a cutie?
Then we went to Grandma and Papa's house for the night
I love seeing Abbi grin at her Papa!
The girls were so excited about their little pumpkins!
What a fun trip!
