The Great River Race

Was looking through the events at forsanityssake and immediately recognize it because connected the couple from Ham told me about it. The Great River Rade is a marathon boat race that starts in London and ends in Richmond. Nancy came along.

We visited the tiny Richmond farmers market, where we got treats, sat outside listening to a live band while the kids danced and watched the boats go by. The highlights however, was a little petting zoo they set up in the corner. Ella spent at least half an hour holding “her bunny.” Every time one of the keepers came, there she was, sitting still and holding and cuddling with her bunny. The keeper looked at me and said “every time I come to see if she’s ok, she’s just ok holding her bunny.”
