We spent final Friday evening and most of Saturday in Richmond! Right here’s the recap. 

Thomas’s Aunt Layton lives in Richmond and provided to host the boys for an evening whereas we had mother and father’ evening out at a resort. After all we jumped on the supply. Layton and her companion John had numerous actions and scrumptious meals deliberate. They roasted s’mores on the fireplace pit and performed with Layton’s yoga studio in her basement. The boys had a beautiful go to. 

Whereas they had been with Layton and John, Thomas and I spent the evening on the Quirk Lodge!

I’d been to the Richmond Quirk for lunch earlier than and finished at Staycation on the Charlottesville location, however I’d by no means stayed at this property. It’s severely one of many cutest resort lobbies there’s! 

Perks with Capital One Enterprise X

I booked our stick with my Enterprise X card, which is my favourite journey card. I had a $300 journey credit score with this card and a few factors to cancel out the $50 stability, so our keep was no value to us. PLUS, because it’s a Life-style Assortment resort with Captial One, we had been upgraded to a set and given $90 of on-site credit to place in direction of drinks and breakfast! I didn’t understand we had these perks and we used them enthusiastically. Learn extra in regards to the Enterprise X advantages right here

Our Loft

Our loft was spacious and really cool. 

Dinner at Chez Foushee

After we modified for dinner we walked 2 blocks to Chez Foushee.

The ambiance was upscale and classic such that I felt like we had stepped into France.

We loved Blanchards espresso (and appreciated the free refills!) from the foyer and ordered breakfast with the remainder of our credit score.

I had the Hearty & Wholesome with a Greek yogurt parfait and avocado toast plus a aspect salad. Thomas had poached eggs over biscuit with gravy. 

Science Museum of Richmond

After we reunited with the boys, we went to the Science Museum of Virginia. I used to be particularly excited for the planetarium. It was the right chilly, wet day exercise. 

The boys cherished the velocity displays, and we noticed the creepy bugs and snakes. 

The spotlight for me was The Dome the place we noticed a big display screen movie about astronauts coaching underwater for area walks. Afterwards we had an astronomy lesson. It was superb (however may have used extra space music!) 

I couldn’t resist getting some astronaut ice cream to share round afterwards.
