Vince’s summer camp is nestled in the depths of Virginia – so we decided to organize a mini-road-trip around picking him up. On Friday – we drove to Montpelier, the home of James Madison. Traveling with Edda without Vince can be a luxurious experience in some ways – although she cannot participate by herself in almost all of the kid-centric activities such as a Children’s Museum or a moon-bounce, she is always excited to walk/stroll on a downtown boutique boulevard or try new foods at a strange restaurant. It’s not to say that the day doesn’t present challenges – we always travel with movies and if Edda is impatient, we whip out the movies and she is content. In this way – we enjoyed the house tour at Montpelier and a 2 hour dinner with Edda.
We did have a theme for the day – Edda loves ice cream! (Actually we all love ice cream – but we like to blame our indulgences on Edda.)
Here’s Edda at Sweet Frog frozen yogurt in Charlottesville, VA looking a little concerned that maybe we are eating too much of her frozen yogurt.
I announced about 20 minutes from Montpelier that I needed to pee. If you know me, you know I hate to stop the car to pee (I don’t mind if someone else stops the car because they need to pee, I just don’t like doing it), I don’t like finding bathrooms, I don’t like inconviencing anyone. I know, it’s weird. I’m weird. But I think it must have been karma, because the closest bathroom was at the Moo Thru – a great local ice cream shop!
