An All-American Girls' Trip

va

The girls and I are beginning our summer with a trip to Virginia and Washington DC.  Yesterday afternoon we flew into Norfolk and drove up to Williamsburg.  We spent the day in Williamsburg today and are headed to Jamestown tomorrow.

Williamsburg is a Colonial village complete with the Governor's Palace and "residents" filling the streets.  We toured the palace and the girls sported a little Revolutionary attire.  The even got to march with the fife and drum corps.

We're on Amelia Island in Florida this week for Spring Break.

We arrived today and it's sunny and in the 70s.

Just heaven.

We were here last year for Spring Break so the girls knew exactly what they wanted to do first -- get fudge at a little shop at the resort. 

Chocolate mint fudge. 

They said it was to celebrate their 10 1/4 birthday today.  How could I argue with that?

Here's to a week of warm weather and sunshine . . . and lots and lots of fudge.

Martin Luther King Day

The girls didn't have school today so we headed downtown to the Field Museum.

We saw Sue the T. Rex, Egyptian mummies, priceless gems, a hall of jade and exhibits on Africa and the Americas.

We had a great day and on the way home we saw this building with windows lit up to spell "MLK."

The perfect end to our day.

Walking on the beach on Coronado Island on New Year's Eve.  One of the prettiest places in the world.
