Ivy & I spent five days with my sister Bethany in Richmond. We visited the National Zoo in DC where Ivy liked all the attention from everyone. She sat in the grass for the first time! It rained in Richmond Sunday and Monday, so we did inside things: shopping and swimming. We ate dinner at Dott's Back In, which I saw on Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives. Definitely a dive. It was great food, but smoky. I'd go back, but NOT with Ivy. Tuesday, we drove down Monument Ave and walked around Maymont Park. The gardens were gorgeous and peaceful. We toured the house, too.
We got home Wednesday afternoon to a fabulous 75 degree sunny day. We went biking with Jeremy for almost two hours. Ivy was a little angry about the Burley, but eventually fell asleep.
The milestone we hit: Ivy can stand up really well along furniture and people, and in her crib. We've had to lower the mattress again. And she's crawling.
