Back in time...

This weekend Andrew, Caroline and I went to Williamsburg with Andrew's family.  (Well, they're my family too!) Andrew's brother, Steve and his family came in all the way from Texas!  I have only spent time with my brother-in-law and sister-in-law at our wedding and I had never met their teenage sons.  I was excited, but admittedly a little anxious about the trip, not only because I would be spending lots of time with family I'd never met before, but also because we were stuffing 13 people into a three bedroom condo and Caroline is not always the heaviest sleeper.  But to my pleasant surprise, it turned out to be a great time!  

We left Friday and stayed until today.  The timeshare my brother-in-law rented was beautiful! We visited Colonial Williamsburg, went on a ghost tour, took tons of pictures, went shopping and ate lots of food!  I got tons of rest and relaxation too, which was much needed! Overall, it was a really fun trip!  

Here are some of my favorite pictures from the weekend!  

(These are mostly of the kids, but that's just because they're more fun to take pictures of!  If you want to see everyone else... check out the flickr later when I have time to put them all up. )  Enjoy!

This is definitely my favorite picture!  Lily carrying Caroline!

Caroline and her big cousin, Lily. 

My beautiful girl!  Look at those eyes! WOW

Lily feeding the ducks!
 
Evelyn on the slide. 
This was before she fell on the way back and scraped up her face! :-( 

Caroline playing on the bed with the "big kids"!

We took a ton of group pictures of all the cousins and these two were the best! 
(Caroline was not in a picture taking mood.)

Caroline and Sophie picking flowers with their pigtails!

Colonial Williamsburg soldiers!

I love them!

Aren't we cute?

All in all it was a lovely long weekend.  I'm back to work tomorrow! boo!  But the good news is that I only have to work three days!  My mom comes Thursday afternoon to keep Caroline for the weekend, while Andrew and I make our way up to Connecticut for our friend's Brandon and Meghan's wedding.  Yay!  I can't wait!  :-)

Yay, Williamsburg! I'm jealous. Heather and I were going to take a sister vacation there this fall, but we never had time to plan and everything sounded expensive, blah blah blah. So we ended up going to the beach instead, which was still great. :) But I definitely want to go to Williamsburg someday! I haven't been since I was itty bitty and obviously don't remember it. :)

Looks like y'all had so much fun!!! The photography is also really gorgeous too - so great! One of my favorite photos is the one of Andrew holding Caroline - I love the cute look in her eye - adorable expression!

Hi Erin, thanks for your comment! Your little girl is so cute!! I definitely recognize you from the LU days, which seems like a lifetime ago now. Glad you had such a good weekend with your fam in law; hasn't this been a beautiful fall? I have good memories from Williamsburg; we used to take class trips there in high school-it's such a fun place and it would be a fantastic family outing. It makes me miss VA!
