D.C. Cherry Blossoms 2024

by RonFamily

The cherry blossoms were early this year, but Brenda, Erin, Gabe, Julian, Liv, Indy, and I managed to see them just in time, along with about 10,000 of our closest friends. It was a beautiful sunny day, and a reminder of how beautiful this area can be in the Spring. Brenda and I were so glad that the PA Sussmans were able to come down for a visit!

Goodbye Arty

by RonFamily

Amanda’s beautiful German Shepard dog Artemis, crossed the rainbow bridge early Monday morning.

It’s said that no one will love you as much as your dog, and that was certainly true for Arty – her whole life revolved around her love for Amanda.

Arty loved walking through the woods, chasing deer in the backyard, and of course eating treats and the cats’ food. Delicious!

You will be missed Arty!

Lily’s Dance Recital

by RonFamilySuper cute

Six year old granddaughter Lily performed onstage in a dance recital yesterday 5/21/22. So Brenda and I had to go down to bear witness, natch’. Extra seating had to be brought in as the auditorium was packed! Lily was in two dance numbers and she did a great job – no stage fright at all, despite the huge crowd of spectators! We were sitting near the back, so these pictures were take from fairly far away. Consequently, they’re not as sharp as I would like. Later that day, Nick was scheduled for a soccer game but sadly, the game was cancelled due to too may players unable to attend. So instead, we had lunch at Capital City Ale House, and then went downtown to the River Rock Festival on the James River. There were many free events, including free Kayaking, so Dane and Lily jumped in a kayak and paddled up and down the river. I had no idea what a great city Richmond was until Brian & Susan moved there a few year ago. Click on the first picture below to run through all the dance recital pics and enjoy the cuteness.
