I've had a wicked cold (or something) for a week now so we haven't had much in the way of fun adventures, but Echo did get to go to my husband's graduation from med school!

I am just terrible at remembering to get lots of photos of my LVs at comicons, and this past weekend was no different. (This time I helped my friend run her table, which probably didn't help me remember!)

Nevertheless, I do have a shot of Echo helping me get ready to get into my knit scalemail Iron Man dress by testing out my gauntlets...



(The knit scalemail is what my friend was selling at her table, so I wore the dress and handed out her cards!)

As promised... Echo and I went to a library instruction conference at Radford University (it's kind of near Virginia Tech and Roanoke, so I drove 10 hours round trip, but at least the weather was okay and the traffic was... not as bad as it could have been).


Here is Radford's library, one of the many beautiful buildings on campus.


This is a shoe-in for one of the top 3 most beautiful photos I've ever taken of an LV! I like to stop at this scenic overlook of the Blue Ridge Mountains off of I-81 for a quick stretch and photo break whenever there isn't fog on the mountains. I think this photo looks like a fake backdrop for senior photos or something. But so pretty!

We haven't done much since we got home from our cross-Virginia trip, but Saturday we went to O'Connor Brewery in Norfolk for Cinco de Mayo:



(I promise we'll be doing something non-alcoholic later this week!)

We took a five-day trip around the state of Virginia (calling it my husband's farewell tour of the state, since he moves out of state in June and I don't follow until December)! I kept up with the trip on Echo's Instagram (@echothelv) but here are a few highlights:


The Virginia Museum of Fine Arts in Richmond! We didn't have time to see everything.


Definitely the most unusual thing on the entire trip... the grave of Stonewall Jackson's left arm. (The rest of him is buried a few hours away in Lynchburg.)


Natural Chimneys is so beautiful and unusual! There are low mountains/hills all around but nothing quite like this, leftover from when there was sea covering all of Virginia.


Natural Bridge is also a huge, interesting geological feature. (Also a bit of a hike... Echo was glad I was doing all the walking for her!)


Whiskey flights at the Virginia Distillery Company


Huge Virginia "LOVE" made from hanging wine corks at Veritas Winery. (Get it? In vino, veritas? I thought it was clever.)

It was a really lovely trip, and now we're back to work and cleaning our apartment and packing and all that other normal adult life stuff.

I forgot to mention... Echo is on Instagram (@echothelv)!

Yesterday, things were a little quiet in the afternoon at work, so I showed her around our (truly awesome) library!

We played a game of giant chess:


And kicked back by the glass "fireplace" (which unfortunately doesn't provide warmth, because it was chilly yesterday!):

Echo has arrived in Virginia Beach! And she brought some candy with her...



Today, despite the cold and rainy weather, we went to Commonwealth Brewery, where they were having a food truck fight (three food trucks for the day, and each is offering a special meal that you can try and vote on)... Yum! (This is loaded tots from the Thai truck... they have nacho cheese, sriracha, sliced beef, green onions, and cilantro on them... one of my favorites!)

So, Eamea and I both made the same mistake of omitting each other's locations from places our LVs have previously been, and we got paired up again! Which will actually be really fun! But because of this, I'm going to give Anana a staycation, and this guy will be going in his place:



That is Rey the puffin, as in Reykjavik, which is where I picked him up a couple years ago. He's never gotten to travel anywhere since I brought him home, so I think he's ready for adventure!

One last addition... Anana's scrapbook came in and I love how it's like a children's picture book!


What a great photo for the cover!

And my favorite pages are the ones from the Seattle Aquarium:


Thanks, Wildfyre! Anana seems to have had a great time and learned a lot while he was with you and your family!

Omg Tuscany is so cute!

Sent in my questionnaire! Anana is, as always, ready for a new adventure!
