On May 10th, we gave Mommy the day off and went on a long walk at Ridge Rd in Albermarle County. This road is known to runners, bikers, and hikers for great views to the east and west and farmland scenery. The boys ventured out in Daddy’s Miata and got to have ice cream, giving Mommy the afternoon off.
