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.|

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|
|One of the only exhibits they looked for and liked...Hey Dum Dum, Give Me Gum Gum- Syd called it the Night at the Museum|
|Rob and Savannah waiting for me to explore the National Gallery of Art|
