A Weekend in Richmond

We had such a blast exploring Richmond last weekend. Even though it was only a short overnight trip, I feel like we got to see a lot of the city. We started off the day in Carytown doing a little bit of shopping (Ryan picked out this creepy statue that I think has now cursed our apartment...) and enjoying how friendly everyone in Richmond was. Then we headed downtown and popped into the Poe museum (trip highlight: meeting Edgar the black cat) and walked around the Virginia State House for a while. The next day, we spent the afternoon hiking around Maymont Park. They have some awesome wildlife exhibits, including two black bears (!!), as well as some really beautiful gardens. Of course, on our way out of town, we made sure to stop off at Sugar Shack to get some doughnuts for the trip home.
