We made a second stop on our way to Tennessee in Virginia. A little out of the way, but we have family there and we wanted to make a little family vacation out of the trip before little mister makes his debut. We stayed with my Aunt and Uncle's family this time around. They live close to the beach! Yay! Lyndon drug us all out into the water and started splashing around calling out to all sharks in the area that we were there (it was shark week on the discovery channel that week). Cosette loved the beach. She likes playing in the sand and water at the parks in NYC so the beach was like a giant sandbox. She did lose one of her water shoes and if you asks her she will tell you "the purple are gone". I feel bad because she was moderately upset about the ocean sucking her shoe out to sea.
She played ball with Lyndon, and my cousin Patrick.

Our second day in VA we spent at Colonial Williamsburg. Such a lovely place. My family would go there whenever we went to visit my Aunt so there are a lot of fond memories of this place. We enjoyed walking around the historic city seeing all of the buildings and kind of experiencing what life would have been like during that time period. Anyone read the American Girl Felicity books? Well this is where she lived and her adventures took place.

Saw the flute and drum marching band. I felt so patriotic.
Cosette took right up with my Aunt Sabrena. She kept calling her grandma, which Aunt Sabrena loved. Cosette was very sad to leave "Grandma Sabrena's" house.

We had a wonderful time relaxing, talking, sleeping, eating, etc. It was a much needed vacation!
