Nov 30

Really tired tonight so I'll update more tomorrow. So I remember what we did today.
Sunny but chilly. Didn't sleep very well last night. Tucker didn't sleep soundly, I found him in the bathroom at 3:45am with Rob's hair gel all over his face. He has a thing for 'creams'. He smeared hair conditioner all over his face last week. At least he is choosing things that smell good.
Yorktown Victory center- hands on 1800s farm and revolutionary war hands on encampment. Tried on some civil war clothes. Cool learning experience for kids.
Back to Williamsburg for lunch in an old fashioned Tavern. Hot homemade apple cider for lunch with yummy beef stew. Walked around town looking at the historical buildings. Shoe maker, gunsmith, Cooper (barrel maker), watched a court case in the court.

Cooper was trying to carry the water buckets and along came a group of turkeys.
 Gobble, Gobble, Gobble.
 Watching an artillery demonstration. 
 In costume... History IS fun!
 Hanging out in the farm kitchen. It was warm inside by the fire.
