We recently visited the home place of Hairston family heritage with Greg's Uncle and his Father. We walked the property, visited the old family home sites and grave sites, and attempted to learn what we can of our Hairston family history while we still have folks around who can recount it. Aunt Liz and Nana returned from a brief excursion to the local antique and crafts market with Donald Duck. Eilene loves the tag on his rear the very best.

We took Eilene to the Big Brothers and Big Sisters Rubber Duck Race at Brown's Island this weekend. This is an annual fundraising event for Richmonders which is actually quite a spectacle. Of the 20,000+ ducks, one of the five we purchased placed 6th! We were very excited. It poured down rain as the ducks crossed the finish line and we had a mad dash to the car. At 7 months old, Eilene's first time getting caught in the rain was a smashing success!
