Home from a vacation that took us to Williamsburg, Virginia. Here's our numbers for this vacation:
number of carsick incidents, involving changing a child's clothes AND scrubbing out the car in a rainy Rite Aid parking lot: 1.
number of streetlights that the State of Virginia uses on main roads: zero. Number of scary incidents of driving around without streetlights and getting lost on "Airport Road" in the pitch dark: 1.
Number of running jokes about Airport Road the rest of the trip: I lost count.
Boys favorite place to be for the trip: Water Country, two trips. Sean is such an adventurous boy, he went on just about everything that his big brother went on, including one slide that you had to climb a net to get to the top. They liked it so much we went back again on Friday.
Number of days where the temp outside hit over a hundred degrees: three. One of these days was our trip to Busch Gardens. It was an incredible park! However, when it's that hot outside it's tough to enjoy everything. We did a pretty good job of staying hydrated and having fun, but it was nasty out. I bought a straw hat at the gates that probably looked ridiculous, but when it's that hot you just don't care. Whew!
Number of yarn shops visited: one. Knitting Sisters in Williamsburg. Really nice shop with gorgeous yarns. And I found the perfect pattern for my niece's Christmas present! :) They also had a nice selection of classes, but alas it was not meant to be.
How many states we passed thru on the way home: nine. This included a surprise trip through Washington DC where we accidentally got off the highway. It's a very confusing, busy place. And why is it when the GPS sends you thru a city, it puts you thru the worst part of it???
And now HOME SWEET HOME and back to unpacking. :)
