Colonial Williamsburg



Well, if you ever want to feel like you have stepped into another place and time, visit Colonial Williamsburg. Once the capitol of Virginia between 1699-1780, the town has been restored to show people what life was like in colonial times, but more importantly to show us what America stands for and the battle raged for our freedom. We took the weekend of May 15-17 to visit Williamsburg and are SO glad we did!! The town has been restored, there are people dressed in period clothing, and there are re-enactments going on showing what was happening during the time of the Revolutionary War and the signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Dan got into trouble!! We got caught in a "little" rain storm!




It was well worth the trip and we want to go back to see Jamestown!!
