The girls each had a colonial dress which was also fun! Beth's was the last to get done. I didn't make any of these and Rose and Grace's were given to us. I found the one for Beth on e-bay. It was very nicely made, but needed some minor alterations including a rather large hem job! I thankfully have a good friend who comes and helps me with sewing projects if I get stuck and she was just so helpful!
Her are some of the highlights of our few days away. I loved that so many of the reenactors took the time to actively engage the girls!
The nice lady at the apothacary offered to pull Beth's loose tooth, but she politely declined with a, "No thank you!"
My silly soldiers kept laughing and their sergeant was so gruff! Grace got tired of the soldiering after a while, but Rose and Beth were ready to go through training again!
It really was a lot of walking for my girls in the 3 days we were there, but they really did well! Grace was carried quite a bit of the way, but the weather was cool enough and we had drinks all day long.
I thoroughly enjoyed seeing the ladies dying the yarn and seeing the workings of the weaving shop. The girls were a bit grossed out by the fact that bugs were used to dye yarn. They were even more disgusted when they found out they still use them in some food dyes!
I was really surprised how much they loved the model of Williamsburg in the visitors center. Every time we went there they wanted to stop and take a peek!
We all thoroughly enjoyed the tea house. We each had chocolate which needed quite a bit of cream and sugar to make it taste yummy. Next time we go I think I'll try some tea. Grandma and Grandpa really like their coffee.
I'm sad to say this is our one and only family picture!
I'm usually really good about making sure we have a few family shots, but I just forgot this time.
Here are some of the treasures the girls came back from Williamsburg with. Rose loves her quill pen and ink and Beth adores her coloring book of colonial fashion trends! Grace has a sweet little horse and lamb, but was adamant that they did not want their picture taken!
I hope you enjoyed a little glimpse into our trip! The girls all asked, "When do we get to come back?" That tells me they had a really good time!
