Family Fun Day – March 5

A new adventure in a familiar place. We headed over to Wayne County to run a loop and hit the 3 key actions – Culture, Activity, and Food.

First up a stop at the Richmond Art Museum. Did you even know they had one? Did you know it’s Free! Just the right size to spend a couple hours, see some great art and artists (did you notice the TC Steele painting above?). Let’s check culture of the list.

Then we stumbled upon Whitewater Gorge Park and the bridge that Riley has now dubbed his #1 scary bridge. That’s big considering the rope bridge in Guatemala he has been on (once!). We think this was a double win … walking activity and culture … we even took in a beautiful abstract painting on a pillar.

We added a stop at the Warm Glow Candle Shop Outlet. Riley got some Bacon Salsa. This is a fun stop right off I-70 at Centerville. We also do some shopping (let’s be honest mostly looking) at lots of oddities at the Centerville Antique Market.

I’ll be honest the shopping was just a delay tactic to make it late enough to justify eating at the #9 Grill in Cambridge City. Great Steak in an old building at great price and Prime Rib doesn’t get served until after 3 pm on Fridays. When you have been there enough you know these things.

A fun day filled with stops at familiar places and we started with two new stops in Richmond. We will definitely keep this in our loop, but I am not sure we will get Riley on the bridge a second time.

Oh, and we called it a day by picking up our creations just before close from last week.

Quite honestly after some of the artwork we saw today. You might see these items in your local Art Museum some day. I think we are all pretty creative and I might add tired from a day of culture, activity, and really good food!


I am a United Methodist Pastor and have the privilege of serving as the Senior Pastor for the church of my childhood. I preach in a place I once was an acolyte. I love to preach, but more importantly I love to teach. I firmly believe that Faith Matters and should affect how we live. This blog is a place where I come to share the randomness that is life and faith ... and the intersection of the two.
