Dan’s parents are finally here and we’re having a blast showing them around ol’ place we call Richmond. They are unbelievably lively and entertaining, and I can’t wait to get to know them better over the next couple of weeks. I’m pretty sure Dan looks exactly like his dad. His mom reminds me of Nicole and her mom, in looks anyway. Coincidence? Maybe not; Nicole is French-Canadian and Dan’s family is Russian-Canadian.
So far we’ve taken them to Mexico and Mamma Zu, and also Belle Isle. Tonight: Ipanema. There is so much to do and so much to eat, and so little time. They’re enjoying themselves a lot I think, so it should be no problem getting them all inked up with matchy Virginia tattoos.
Happy late Canada Day, by the way! I celebrated late by eating about a million Hawkins Cheezies at work today.
