And we celebrated with an adventure!
We all piled in the Gussiemobile early in the morning (9 ish or so) and went across the James River to a place called Pony Pasture. It has lots of nice trails, runs right along the James River, and we figured we might just walk the trails for a couple of miles and do some relaxing.
We pulled away from the house and got on the toll road and Muzzer says....."oh no, I forgot the camera. So all these photos are from the park system website. Dumb Muzzer.

First loop over, back at the pawking lot and Dad decides he wants to see the Rapids Outlook.
None of us would have guessed what was going to happen next!

We will get better, and that is a promise.
Many thanks to Garth Riley for inspiring this walk. Good Dog!
