I'm back! :-)

We had a wonderful vacation in VA last week!  Got to see some dear old friends (though they are not old!!!), have great family time, learn a few historical things at Colonial Williamsburg, and scream like crazy on the coasters at Busch Gardens!!  It was soooo much fun but it was sooooooo HOT!!

Here's a taste of our time...

Our home away from home:


Colonial Williamsburg ~
Governor's Palace:

It was so hot that there were not a lot of 'towns people' walking the street so I got excited when I saw this guy on his horse and went over to get his pic.  He waved at me.  I wondered what he was doing then realized that he was "George Washington" and taking part in a reenactment down the street.  Oops!  I almost kept George Washington from saving the day!  LOL

The Capitol Building:

Busch Gardens ~
The water rides were very welcome!!!

"Alpengeist"  My favorite! Very twisty! :D

"Griffon" - 4 second pause then a 90 degree drop!  My family is in the second row. I rode this one, too, and it is a lot of fun!!

 They have lots of beautiful animals!


Home again ~

We had a great time but now back to real life!   My daughter's birthday was yesterday and here is her birthday cake... turtle cheesecake!!
Yummy!!

I hope to spend some time in my carft room today so should be posting again soon.

Have a great day!!!
