Williamsburg and Jamestown

last night at the Cottage where we stayed in VA beach...it was so pleasant that night we went out on the upper porch and kendall enjoyed the hammock and we both read for a while.

proof i was there:)

 proof of the AWESOME sunburn that i had gotten that day...pretty sure this picture doesn't do the pain justice! ouch! never again!

The next day,  Tuesday in VA it was overcast and spitting rain, but still nice so we decided to go check out Williamsburg and Jamestown.  I had been to Williamsburg as a child with my family, this time we didn't have enough time to do the tour but we did all the free things:):)

College of William and Mary, one of the oldest, still functioning colleges. It was beautiful...as was all of Virginia and WA DC...really pretty greenery/flowers.  I miss that sometimes in the desert.
