We got here Saturday evening to tons of screaming cousins (I'd like to wear a big sign around my neck while walking through the resort that reads YOU'RE WELCOME).
The first full day here I hit up the JCrew Factory store and found a bunch of clothes that make me feel happy & summery :) then we chilled by the pool where there's a bar & you can charge drinks to your room. WIN.
Yesterday we did Colonial Williamsburg to the predictable grumbling of the older kids, Truett's favorite refrain was, can we go back to the hotellll? But we otherwise had a fantastic time. The kids got to try their hand (feet) at making bricks - colonial style - and loved watching the big horse drawn carriages clip clop by. The candle maker was a hit, & the huge loom for making bolts of cloth was mesmerizing. It makes me wish I had a real craft :)
Here are a bunch of pictures I took - and instagrammed - if you're curious.
I keep trying to show up on #ihavethisthingwithfloors.
My swishy new summer clothes.
My brother brought us all a bunch of Cokes from Mexico because, duh, everyone knows those are better.
Brick makers. The real ones - colonial - were slaves, children & convicts. Not paid. 14 - 15 hours a day.
My kids stomping in the brick clay.
For my mother in law, who's maiden name is Pitt.
June told me yesterday that she, "loves this little British town,"
These two are so close.
Hope you're having a great week & be back soon! xo
