Becky, our horse whisperer:
The kids tried their hand at wagon-pulling:
I loved getting to hear the stories of the tradespeople. I can’t imagine spending so much time making cotton for clothes!
The kids found a sheet of stickers in my purse while we were waiting to go into the gunsmith building:
Baby T was happy when we let her out of the stroller to do some strolling!
We were so thankful my mother-in-law could join us for the trip. She’s such a huge help!
For Spring Break, we took the RV on a trip down to Virginia to see my sister and visit Colonial Williamsburg and Busch Gardens. The kids were super excited to be back in the motorhome!!
Our fearless driver and backseat driver!
I’m not sure the kids appreciated Colonial Williamsburg as much as I did (maybe except Jimmy, our history buff), but they still really enjoyed seeing people in costumes and admiring all the pet dogs other visitors were walking. And hopefully a little bit of education seeped into their brains between exclamations over golden retrievers and exhausted requests for water (it was a beautiful 80 degree day, but we hadn’t gotten used to summer temperatures yet)!
I can’t resist an old cemetery!
One of our favorite parts of the trip was seeing all the beautiful spring flowers and trees in bloom:
We took a hiatus from the history to find a modern burger shack to re-energize the troops for the rest of the sightseeing that day!
Jimmy (written at school): “Dear Dad, I want a boosted board [an electric skateboard] because I would not bug you any more and I won’t ask you anymore. Sincerely, Jim”
The girls took matters into their own hands when they found out it was Hat Day at school. Each of them completely designed and created their own headwear. I love it!!
Sometimes these brothers stop annoying each other long enough to remember that they really enjoy each other’s company!
