Richmond and Road Trips

On our way back to Fville, we decided to make a day of it and do something in Richmond.  Of course Richmond is full of history and interesting things to do--but not all of that is very toddler friendly.  however, the man of this family is quite the history lover, so we settled on the Confederate Museum and White House and then we went to lunch.

 We both love to watch Diners, Dives and Drive-ins--and have the iphone app so that if we are ever near a one of the restaurants from the show we can go see it.  There were actually 3 places in Richmond, but we decided on the Village Cafe and we weren't disappointed.  It was definitely a little college bar hang out bit as the review said the onion rings were fabulous--it was the best strombolli i have ever had and the milkshakes for the ride home weren't too shabby either.  A good place for sure ;)

 the ride home was pretty uneventful...a nap and some curious george. they're getting better on this road trip stuff!

I did not know there was an app for Diners Drive Ins and Dives! I am downloading it as we speak - Richard and I LOVE to watch the show.
