Last weekend we were blessed with a visit from my parents, my sister Stephanie, and my niece Chloe. We decided to brave the intense heat and take a road trip to Colonial Williamsburg. (Unfortunately, my sister became ill while we were there and couldn't leave the hotel room, so the rest of us had to go on without her.)
Colonial Williamsburg is a really interesting and beautiful place. It's also a great place to take kids. There are so many things to see and so many activities for kids. We highly recommend taking a weekend to spend with just the family.
Here are Charlie and Chloe checking out the inside of one of the buildings on a farm just outside the town. This farm has been recently constructed to show exactly how a farm would be run during colonial times. It's quite fascinating and shows how much we can take for granted today.
Here is one of the vegetable gardens on the farm:
Here are my sweet parents having a little rest while we wait for our next attraction.
Here Charlie is being handcuffed at the town jail:
Here is a picture of Chloe helping to take care of Judah. She's a sweet little cousin!
Judah became very attached to his Pap Pap.
Poor Charlie is squinting because of the sun, but here she is showing off her new doll that she bought with her own money:
Here we are on our way out:
I wish I had taken more pictures of the buildings to show you. The town is really quite beautiful, even when it is 90 degrees. I hear that Christmastime is also a great time to visit. Maybe we'll return and take some better photos then!
