Richmond, VA & St. John's Church

Saturday, Tarrish was in the area so we decided to drive up to Richmond to meet her so we could hang out & play a little bit.  We stopped by a park so the kids could use the bathroom when we happened upon a Statue of Liberty.  I don't know why it was there, but the kids thought it was cool so we took a picture.

After the park we visited St. John's church. . . where Patrick Henry gave his infamous
"Give me liberty, or give me death"
speech.  It's really nice living so close to these amazing American historical sites.

George Wythe, the first signer of the Declaration of Independence is also buried there at St. John's church.

The kids enjoyed the trinkets in the gift shop there on the church grounds.

It was a beautiful day & we really enjoyed learning about that little piece of history before meeting up with Tarrish.
