In Richmond, we stopped at the Science Center, where we picked up a year-long membership. The kids loved exploring levers, pulleys, and blocks.
We all worked together to build a giant arch!
And then at the touch tank we got to feel all sorts of sea creatures.

It was still horribly hot outside, so we decided to spend the day at the air conditioned Smithsonian Natural History Museum.
After staring at the "Neanderthal Burial" exhibit for quite a while, Arthur turned to me and asked, "So....why did she kill him?"
We then had fun in the science lab, coloring butterfly pictures and exploring with microscopes.
We loved the human origins exhibit, but were a bit concerned when one of the videos showed a leopard savagely killing a hominid.
And everyone was so tired that they fell asleep on the train ride back.

We couldn't believe how long it had been since we took the kids swimming, so when we were visiting their cousins in Maryland and it was almost 100 degrees outside, we immediately hit the pool. Everyone was as comfortable in the water as when we had last gone swimming.

On the road by Nana and Pop Pop's house there are a bunch of wine berry bushes. We love picking the sticky berries in the summer, and every few days trot down to the bushes with our buckets in hand.
But the berry bushes had prickers, and more than one sun hat became trapped.

We got up early and drove out to a blueberry farm.
Even though Pop Pop got stung by a bee, we had a lot of fun.
Afterwards, we went to Smithfield Plantation to see their historic Fourth of July celebration. Arthur and I learned about guns.
We then took a hike and explored an old cemetery.
And since it was such a hot day, we made sure everyone wore their hats.
And this was only the start of our Fourth of July. We then went to see Cars 2 at the movie theatre, had a barbecue, and shot off some fireworks, before heading to bed, exhausted.
