One of my favorite places to visit in Richmond is the Short Pump Town Center I can see you rolling your eyes and thinking…IT’S JUST A MALL, but if you’ve been there you’ll probably agree.
I love this place even if it is an outdoor mall! We often laugh about this because it does get cold in Richmond, but thankfully its been unseasonably warm this year; hence, my visit in December.
I don’t know what it is about this place; I don’t know if it’s being able to smell the fresh air and soak in the sunshine while you walk from store to store or having the opportunity to sit down in one of the many conversation areas and enjoy a cup of Starbucks or ice cream, depending on the weather. Whatever it is, I always enjoy watching the transformation in preparation for Christmas and this year was no exception!
So here we are during my girls-only weekend to Richmond; my mother-in-law joined us for the trip. I was glad she did; it was nice not having to chase after both girls.
Watching my oldest face light up as we rode around the Town Center was definitely worth the wait in the LONG line (well, Grandma waited in line) while the girls and I played in our favorite store, Pottery Barn Kids. It’s probably more my favorite place than theirs, but I never get any complaints while they play with these lavish kitchen sets and one of a kind toys.
Today was a great day with the girls.
I love this place!
