Catching Up

Hi everyone!

I have pretty much absent from the computer (and my blog) this past week. Don's Mom and his Aunt Shirley came to Virginia for a visit and I spent the week with them :) We managed to do lots of things while they were here.

We went to Williamsburg for the afternoon. We shopped a walked around for a couple hours then got caught in a rain shower - we were soaked so ended up heading home and ordering Chinese for dinner. Still a fun time :)

Sam and Jacob messing around before the rain hit:

There were some beautiful gardens in Williamsburg - I thought these foxglove were amazing!

We also made a trip back to Bell Island (love that place!) Here are Don, Abbie and his Aunt and Mom on the bridge over to the island:

In between there were lots of sports! Here I caught Abbie in action about to make a goal:

And here is Sam right before one of his games:

On Mother's day we went to Washington DC - the weather couldn't have been more perfect! After a long, fun day we topped it off with a crab leg dinner at the Hard Shell in Richmond. YUM!
The white house:
Me and my three "babies" at the WWII Memorial:

Now to catch up on all the laundry, grocery shopping and cleaning before my parents get here for a visit on Thursday. Looking forward to more fun then! :)

I love Washington, D.C. I cannot wait to take my boys when they are a little older to really appreciate the history and all that goes with it. It looks like you had a great visit!
