Virginia: Maymont and Trains

Still in Virginia!

And because the Maymont was described as "a Richmond treasure" it was on our must-see list. The entire place was beautiful. We took a tour of the mansion and the kids were surprisingly great!

After the museum, we went to the petting zoo and nature center.

 The goat was having a heart-to-heart with the family. Or maybe he was just hoping for food.

After the Maymont, we stopped by the Railroad Museum. Our oldest loves trains and he was glad to see this.
