Colonial Williamsburg @ Christmas

We found a great deal on annual passes to Colonial Williamsburg right after Thanksgiving. So part of Grammie and Pey's gift to our family was this annual pass;) So awesome since it's a great place to explore and it fits our history time period this year:)

So on Christmas Eve...

we ventured out to Colonial Williamsburg:)
On the Shuttle

Drum and Fife Corps

Fresh and charming Colonial Williamsburg Christmas decor

Brian and Nate enjoying the indoor conversations at the blacksmith's shop

Grammie and the older kids getting a better view of the blacksmith

The beautiful array of colors at the weaver's shop

The sword handles decorating the Governor's Palace

Tree climbing... this tree has been climbed for generations!
Lydia in the stocks

Daddy had fun too;)

It was a super trip and there was very small crowd, so we got to see a lot in a short time, including the tour of the Governor's Mansion.

We loved visiting Williamsburg and look forward to visiting it many times this year & in  warmer seasons;)


Thanks to Grammie and Pey for this awesome gift and hoping they can join us in more Williamsburg adventures;)

Just for fun, on the way home we asked the kids what their favorite part of Williamsburg was...
Anna: The ride on the Shuttle.
Chris: The man banging on the red, hot metal.
Lydia: The horse poop in the middle of the road!

LOL!! Thankfully it's a season pass;) And the can get more out of it next time!
