Williamsburg Weekend

Who missed me while I was gone?  😉 

I can’t tell you how strange it was to not touch my laptop in three whole days.  It is good to be back! And a special thanks to all who sent sweet messages wondering why the %$#% I haven’t blogged in so long…I missed you, too!  🙂

So, the ride to Williamsburg took about 4.5 hours thanks to 95 traffic and two puking kids in the backseat.  The ride wasn’t an indication of things to come…we actually had a great time over the weekend.  We started at Busch Gardens Friday and did Colonial Williamsburg Saturday and Sunday.  Here is a collage of the buildings and such that I couldn’t resist photographing:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The white house in the upper right hand corner is where we stayed.  It was so quaint…a bedroom and bath downstairs for us, and the same upstairs for the boys.  We were only a block off of the main street, so we were only a 5-10 minute walk from anywhere we wanted to go.

Here are the boys in our side yard:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

They were pretty into seeing how things were done 200 years ago.  Here they are watching the gunmaker build his fire:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

And the blacksmith had his fire burning when we arrived, and we were able to watch him work.  I commented about how there was no safety equiptment back then, and he assured me that his job (sticking his bare hands in a white hot fire and smacking the iron with a hammer) was no more dangerous that me cooking in my kitchen.  I don’t know about that…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

But we saw all kinds of cool stuff, and it was mostly just great to get away and just have some time for the four of us without cars breaking down or photos to edit. 

But hold on, because I’m doing some major catching up today…
