Vacation!






Just wanted to post a few of the 125 pics I've taken SO FAR- and we're only 3 days into it!!
I love the history of colonial Virginia!Who knew it was So much fun to Learn? yesterday we Listened to Martha Washington and learned So much! George Washington did not have a middle name- and didn't have children. Ok, most people know this stuff but it was fresh for me. Here are just a FEW of the pics!!


This is the govenor's Palace

Bob and Jon at the Foundary holding a 18th century musket, and my facination with spoons.

The Wythe house- basket weaving, (not usual at this time but wanted to demonstrate how baskets are made)

At the Wythe home, Presidents Washington and Jefferson were mentored by Mr. Wythe! I loved these dolls on a dresser upstairs.

Lunch at the inn- Brunswick stew- (unfortunately - ha ha) they didn't have possum! Just made of chicken and the corn bread was to DIE for! My hubby had a GREAT beer that can only be found in two places! Here and in Pennsylvania.

Dinner out at the City Grill- OH LA LA!! Beef tenderloin with crab cake, mashed potatoes, served on corn bread and steamed veggies with a glass of wine! PIGGY HEAVEN!! Lovingly written by just me...just jane.

Looks like you had a great vacation! Mine is far less exciting. However, Emma and I went to Frankenmuth Monday & Tuesday. We did Bronner's and the Bavarian Inn, plus at Emma's request(?!) to the Frankenmuth Museum. We had fun. Am going to my folks for Easter weekend.

By the way, it's hard to believe how grown up Jon is looking!
