Weather Balloon Launch

We took the kids out late at night to see a weather balloon launch in Blacksburg. It was amazing to see how high up we could still see the balloon!

The kids love their new Egyptian playmobil set, and also love the "Inclined Plane" song from Sid the Science Kid.

Art Museum Visit

We took the kids to their first art museum, in Richmond. They enjoyed looking at some examples of modern art.
We then took them to the visiting Egypt exhibit, where they watched a 3D film about mummies.

Sledding

Finally, we had enough snow to actually go sledding.
And Betty, of course, loves to eat fresh snow!

Buffalo Mountain

We took the kids on a hike up to the top of Buffalo Mountain in Floyd.
We had a lot of fun getting to the top, but boy it was windy up there!
After none of them actually blew off the mountain, we then had a nice picnic lunch.
