Williamsburg pics - day 1

This is gonna be a short post tonight, I promise. Not like yesterday when I said it was going to be a short post and then I wrote and wrote and wrote.

So we're spending the week in Williamsburg, VA. Today we went to Jamestown Settlement. There was a museum inside with a huge exhibit about the settlers, the Native Americans, the African slaves, and the traders and how all of these cultures converged in Jamestown in the 1600s. Then, outside they had replicas of a Powhatan village, several boats you could board and then walk all around, and a fort settlement. You could go in all of the houses and see how they lived. It was all very hands on. Sprinkled throughout they had people in costume who could give you information about life in the various settings.

Enough of the intro, here are the pics.

Oh, that gave me happy memories. And look how much fun Livvie Lou is having! Don't you LOVE the thatched roofs.

Oh that looks like so much fun. Did Livvie get to dress up in costume too? Your quilt is looking gorgeous, can't wait to see the finished product.
