Jamestown and Williamsburg

Back to summer adventures...

We visited Williamsburg and Jamestown during our trip back east.  When we went to Williamsburg, it must have been the hottest day of our trip!

Sydney in Williamsburg.  Her class studied the Colonial times all year and Sydney became interested in the the time period.

Savannah playing some colonial games

At Jamestown, the girls were able to participate in activities that the citizens of the first settlement participated in.

Alexandria and the Nationals Game

More fun back east...
Alexandria is pretty little city with a lot of history.  We explored  a little before getting ready to head to the Nationals game.

Smithsonian Museums

So the girls were not too happy to visit all of the Smithsonians.  The only exception to this was when they were glad to escape the rain.  Here are some pictures from our visits...

Air and Space Museum - The girls posed by a plane that is a replica of a one that Amelia Earhart flew.  
The girls posing near the animals of Madagascar.
A dress from one of my favorite exhibitions - The dresses of the First Ladies

The Capitol Building

                        While in DC, I took a lot of pictures of the Capitol building.
One of my favorites
The girls on the mall
Continuing the tradition..I met my congressman in 5th grade and took a picture with him.  This is our Congressman, Ken Calvert.
Cali, the Congressman's office dog.
  We got to take a tour with a congressional intern.  This is a model of the statue at the top of the capitol building.
The beautiful painting at the top of the rotunda.
