Memorial Weekend Recap

Wednesday, June 2, 2010

We had a busy, fun-filled holiday weekend. Having Daddy back in town has been so great and we were determined to make the most of it. I think we succeeded!

We visited Colonial Williamsburg for a walk through history. We fed a horse, chatted with some sheep, toured the gaol (local jail), had a picnic and wore out our walking shoes.

We also visited the Virginia War Museum, which was a first for us. I was so impressed with not only the amount of memoribilia they have on display, but also the quality of the exhibits.

We also did a little of this:

Sounds like a fantastic day. I would love to take my kids to Colonial Williamsburg. I got to see that place when I was in 8th grade and have so many memories of it.

We did a lot of the last two pics, lol. But other than yard work and opening our pool? Not much, lol.

I SO want to go back to Willamsburg! I haven't been there since I was in High School.
