Think Back Thursday ~ Vacation




Unlike the cute picture above our family does not really enjoy the beach. Our favorite vacations are usually in the "off" season when the public school kids are back in school, and we like historical places.

I am featuring my favorite vacations we ever took.
Trips to Williamsburg, VA in 2001 and 2002.
At that time you could buy a year long pass to Williamsburg for less than it cost to make just one trip. We didn't think we could make many trips but we figured we could at least get there twice... just about a year apart... to make it worth the money we spent.

So here is the trip in October 2001

Nathan on the left in the stocks (age 7), Christopher (you can only see his legs, feet at the bottom and his hands holding on at the top, age 4), Rachel in the stocks (age 15), Jessica standing next to her (age 12).


Now you can see little Christopher!

Now for our trip in September 2002

 This is a combo of 3 photos of the kids that I "pasted" next to each other. They all "peeked" out the same whole at the same time.

"Ready to fight???"

 "I'm with ya' brother!"                                

                                      "I'm ready!"

"Fight!!!"                         Fight who???

We had a grand trip. Unfortunately our youngest son remembers nothing from this trip. I wish we could make another trip. I hope to one day.

Now it is your turn. I'm sure lots of you have vacation pictures.
Wouldn't you love to share them with us???
