Back in time...

What a busy week! My mom, sister, nieces and nephew came to visit. We spent the week commuting to Colonial Williamsburg and Jamestown. Whew! I drove nearly 800 miles...that's crazy! But we all had a great time.

Hannah liked the Millinery shop, where she got to see some lovely gowns.

The Silversmith and the Wigmaker were also favorites.


We didn't have much trouble with the kids behavior once they had a taste of the stocks...

Hannah explored playing a harpsichord.

And we were all interested in the historic garden, from pathways and interesting plants....we learned that cotton is in the hibiscus family.

Mary didn't mind toting water from the well! Really!


Here is Stevie, a little revolutionist!


Maggie liked dipping candles.



And Hannah liked the shopping. Here, Mary and Maggie are choosing a doll for Hannah. Do you think it's a little large?

Chris was able to sneak away from college for a little fun too!


It was a great week, and we're all exhausted. It's hard to believe that tomorrow is the First Day of School! I think I can, I think I can, I think I can....

Touting the water would get old after a few times, I am very happy not to be touting water as I would have to put Sylas in a front pack to do it. Imagine that.
It looks like you all had so much fun!

Fun photos! I have some that are similar - that I need to post. lol

Do you know how much that large doll cost? A friend asked - 10K!!! Can you believe it? I wish I had gotten one of the little ones. Oh well, maybe next time as I do want to go back!
