ATL-RIC

I got to spend the weekend with my wonderful grandparents in Drewryville, Virginia this weekend. Mom and Liz had some work in Maryland, so I flew in and met them there and we drove down to VA together.

It was Paw Paw's 76th birthday on Friday, and we were able to celebrate with him and Nee Nee and Uncle Kenny with an awesome home-cooked country style birthday meal Friday night.

On Saturday we drove out to Smithfield for another celebratory meal (my family REALLY likes to eat, can you tell ;) and enjoyed seeing the Inner Banks (also known as the IBX).  And of course, we admired their beautiful gardens as well as several of Uncle Kenny's carpentry projects, and played with the cats and dogs.

It was great getting to spend some quality time with family, and taking a time-out from the hustle and bustle of city life! You can see all the photos from our trip here.

As always, non-revving was a bit of an adventure, and after 7 hours in the Richmond airport, I finally got out on the last flight of the day back to ATL.  I have to leave again tomorrow for meetings in DC, but I'll enjoy my time with Shannon and Riley until then :)
