Warning: This post is going to be very heavy on the pictures!!
Well, Jacob and I are back from our four day mini-break to the Williamsburg area. We stayed on a military base up in the area where we were literally about an 1/8 of a mile from the beach. Unfortunately, I was too darn tired at the end of each day to spend much time out there so we only really got to visit it the last morning that we were there. I think that we both had a really good time even with the very modified schedule with me being so pregnant. I can only walk so much! LOL!
The first day that we were in the area, we went to Colonial Williamsburg. This was really the whole point of us going. Jacob is a huge history fan and has been wanting to make this trip for years. So when we got there and saw that they had costume rentals for kids...well, he was definitely in his element!
We hit the area at just the right time so that the flowers were all blooming gorgeously. This allowed for some great photo opportunities!!! Which means that I was a happy camper too!
This is just one of the many garden areas in the park. I loved this little vignette!!
Our second day in the area was spent at Busch Gardens. Jacob, at 12 years old, has led a very sad life. Until this day, he had never been to an amusement park so this was high on the priority list too. Unfortunately, DH was not able to make the trip at the last moment so that meant that Jacob had to ride all the rides by himself, but he loved it. Luckily as an only child (at least until now) he is used to being pretty independent. I am not posting any of the photos from the rides, but you will see them soon as I have already printed them out to scrapbook.
Again, at Busch Gardens the flowers were absolutely fantastic!!
One of the things that I did when we were in England was take tons of photos of the gorgeous doors so when we saw these at the park, we had to take another photo. Notice how wet Jacob is...he spent almost the entire day on the water rides. Luckily, it was an absolutely gorgeous day!
When I saw the saying on this, I knew that I had to get Jacob to pose. I told him to look miserable...I think that he has got that look perfect! LOL!
Finally the last morning as we were leaving, we got to head down to the beach for a bit. It's really a shame that we didn't get to spend more time here as it was simply gorgeous.
Finally, here is a shot of me pregnant at 31 weeks. Thankfully, Jacob cut the shot so that you can't see my extremely swollen feet. I don't think that they are ever going to return to normal after this trip until the baby is born. LOL! He's a pretty good photographer, isn't he?
So now we are back and I have 145 new photos to scrapbook so I am sure that you will be seeing a whole lot more of our trip in the near future.
