Ringing in the New Year in Charlottesville

31 12 2014

We met Aunt Carrie, Uncle Dwayne, and Leila in Charlottesville to enjoy the “First Night” New Year’s Eve festivities and spend time together.

We liked the Omni hotel, right on the downtown pedestrian mall in Charlottesville.

The Virginia Discovery Museum is a great place for toddlers, right on the downtown mall.

One more visit to the Discovery museum before heading back home.

The Panera store is definitely a favorite part of the museum for all.
