Pony Pasture Picnic

Last Saturday afternoon, we decided to go on a picnic at Pony Pasture, which is an area of the James River that is known as a great "beach" for Richmond. We were out running errands when we decided to do this and were totally unprepared, but had so much fun. We grabbed some food "to go" and headed over. We wanted to eat out on the rocks, but were trying to figure out how to get all three girls and all of our stuff out there.A nice man who was there with his family came over and in his broken English said, "I help you", picked up Lucy and some of our stuff and helped us out to a perfect spot. It was great and so nice of him to help us. I love that Chuck can speak Spanish in times as these, where he could really thank this man for his help.

The girls love playing in the river. They didn't seem to care that they did not have swim suits on and still had lots of fun.
Chuck and Leland went out to explore the rocks farther out.
Lucy, Charly and I hung out splashing our feet. Charly loves the water and is fearless in situations like these. She kept pulling at my hand that was around her waist, so that she could get farther into the water.

I love this city! This fabulous spot is only about 15 minutes from our house.
