We had a wonderful time - they didn't chain us up in the basement - and we CAN'T WAIT until they come to Kentucky at the end of August!!!
By the way - I was showing Alex a picture of Cerah yesterday from Soltana's blog. He got all excited - leaned in and kissed the computer screen and then tried to give it a hug. SO CUTE!!!
We then drove back to Wiliamsburg (another 3 hours!) and got back to the room in just enough time for us to 'freshen up' and then head out for our Sunday evening event - Family Night!
Family Night took place at the Governor's Palace in Colonial Williamsburg. A drum and fife group came to our hotel and "marched" us over to the Palace. It was hot, but it was really cool. There was food, drink, and cool stuff going on.
The food was good - Alex was still on his protein and vegetable strike! (and of course he was charming EVERYONE that he saw - those old political southern ladies just couldn't get enough of him!!)
They had some old toys available for the kids to try. Here's Alex "playing" with the hoop thing. (you know that hoop that the kids would hit with a stick to make it roll over the ground) He didn't quite get the idea, but had a lot of fun hitting things with the stick.
We then went over to the outdoor stage where they had storytellers/singers/jugglers/etc.
Here was Alex relaxing!
Look how sweaty he is!! (and he's eating a "cookie" - at least that's what we call Fig Newtons!!)
We ended up going back to the room around 9:00. They were going to shoot off fireworks, and we weren't sure how Alex would handle them. He was also very tired (as was mommy).
It was a LONG day - but we had so much fun!!
