I love going to VA and visiting my Cousin and Aunt.  They live in Midlothian (outside Richmond), which is an awesome town with great food and shopping!  Upon arriving my cousin and I headed to First Watch for brunch.  Sadly they don’t serve alcohol, but that ended up being a good thing because we had a busy day planned.  I got the Elevated Egg Sandwich, which was AMAZING!  My cousin got the Lemon Ricotta Pancakes, she said they were SO GOOD!
