Staycation Day ?

I totally lost track of our staycation plans, but I'm pretty sure that this is Day3 - and luckily for you, the last day before the kids headed off to Great Wolf and I went to the homeschool conference - all without a camera.

We started the day with a bike ride through Deep Run park. Here is the fam after a particularly steep part:


And what's an active summer outing without a stop for ice cream?

The "Open" blinked on just as we pulled into the parking spot:


Now, that's staycation! - in a cone:



My son didn't believe me that you could/should turn your Blizzard upside down, but skeptically tried it for the staycation cam (insert the I-told-you-so dance here!):



We headed home for quick showers and then off to a new movie theater that opened in downtown Richmond, Cinemaland at the Bowtie Theater:


The owners renovated an old train stop (warehouse, depot yard?) and left lots of the industrial feel. Old pipes and wires are turned into lighting and lots of brick everywhere. The concession stand had lots of goodies like nachos that made me wish we came for lunch.

But the best part was that we came to see "Up" - in 3D!



Great movie!


Huge hallways and big, clean bathrooms (with our favorite - the Dyson hand driers!) made the place a hit with me.



I just wish I knew who these poor, unfortunate children belonged to...



Our family's staycation assessment: great idea. We all had lots of fun, got to do things we wanted to try, and had lots of time with Daddy. My husband and I liked the low cost. If I could have made the laundry and dishes disappear, it would have been perfect!

Fun! I'm with Brendan on the skepticism - I'm still nervous every time they turn that cup over!
