Yorktown~ where the Revolutionary War was won

(some more catch up posts from our trip)

What the soldiers lived in


Ha Ha


The kids dressed themselves up like colonial children.

Learning about the *Declaration of Independence*


Chasing the Chickens & Turkeys

Kaylea & I thought these Heart leaves were neat!


Driving to the actual location of the VICTORY AT YORKTOWN


THIS WAS THE ACTUAL HOUSE THAT THE PAPERS WERE SIGNED AFTER General CORNWALIS SURRENDERED To General GEORGE WASHINGTON in 1781.

Aw... precious.

You got some great pictures. I can't even imagine how much your kids learned those weeks you were gone. What great memories

So...just wondering. Of all the places you visited, which was your fave? And if you had to choose a place/area to live in, which would it be? :)

Hum...of all the places I'd live back there. ? To me it was all so beautiful and green. We went to the Williamsburg ward building twice and got a feeling of how it would be to live there. The town in general is really family friendly..lots of fudge & ice cream shops (so I could definitely handle that) , great PARKS (I think Becky I told you that already) & waffle houses. THe people are also very nice..kinda a historic/college town. I think you'd enjoy it. Oh & Callie we were back there for about 2 1/2 weeks this fall. (Each post is usually just 1 day of exploring:)
