For my birthday we had a roller skating party in Newport News on my birthday observed then on my actual birthday Dan, Annie and I went to the big city of Richmond. First we checked out the VMFA sculpture garden. The VMFA was recently renovated and it is a beautiful, free, art museum with wonderful visiting exhibits, like the Musee National Picasso from Paris. Dan and I went to see that exhibit with good friends a couple weekends ago - Annie is not a modern art fan so we left her at home for that trip to Richmond.
After the art museum we went to a fabulous vegetarian bistro, Fresca, where we shared a pizza and sammy and polished off the meal with an Elvis dessert pizza: chocolate, banana, peanut butter pizza - it was divine!
After that we wandered through Richmond's Carytown (that's not Kerrytown for you astute Ann Arbor readers). Carytown is a trendy shopping area on Cary Street near the VCU campus.
