Watching The Grandkids In Richmond

Drew running the 5 kilometer race

Monday we drove from Charles SC to Richmond VA. We will be staying here the next 6 days - we are watching the grandkids.

Drew and Robin are celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary. They are going to Turks and Caicos for a few days and also for a night on Miami South Beach where they lived for 5 years and where Drew proposed getting married.

I just took them to the airport. they will fly to Miami - spend a night - and then catch a plane to Turks and Caicos. The islands are east of Cuba. It is hot but relatively dry there.

We got into Richmond just in time to see Drew complete in a neighborhood 5 kilometer race (3 miles). We were surprised to see him average 7 minutes and 40 seconds per mile. I have always said I want to run and 8 minute mile before I die.

Drew and Robin look exactly the same as they did 10 years ago at their wedding. Considering they are busy raising a 6 year old and a 3 year old - that is pretty good.

It was 97 degrees and the kids cooled him off with water guns.

The honeymoon will be spent in Turks and Caicos

The race was held at the local elementary school just down the street from their home.
