I could probably write at least ten more posts about what we did at Pop Castle, but I still have all of the DC posts to do from the trip so I'll try to wrap it up here. One thing that we should have done more of: walks around the neighborhood. Pop Castle is located in White Stone, VA, which is a quaint little town on its own, but the house is nestled within a great walking neighborhood. The houses are really far apart but there are paved roads and barely any traffic. We only took one walk, but it was a good one.
|Getting ready to head out. Gotta love the oyster walkway at Pop Castle.|
|The GPR Gang|
|Checking out the real estate (all of the houses have names, I am a big fan)|
|Legit eagle's nest!|
|Abbi protecting Kiki during the pinecone fight. She looks fierce.|
|Getting ready for the race. Zane had to give them a head start.|
|Yep, it's a baby frog. Johnny cried when we had to put it back.|
|Family Room...games, books, tv, computer, Wii...|
|Cassi is clearly not happy...Kiki was eventually the winner!|
We also did a lot of reading, napping, and eating (these of course making up the trifecta of pastimes of the Garcia Pattea family). I definitely should have taken advantage of reading in the hammock by the river...with a snack. Haha. PS In case you didn't realize, if you click the links it will take you to some other pics Abbi took and posted to her instagram.
|Reading in the yard.|
|Mini ice cream sandwiches. These kids are obsessed with all things mini.|
|Green smoothie anyone?|
|Madi peeking out from the hammock. Great views from this spot!|
Ok, if I can figure out how to get the videos formatted then I will do one more post on Pop Castle. Then it's all about DC! Seriously, so fun.
