Warners come for a visit!

My family came for a visit last week! The parentals along with Laura got here Tues afternoon (June 30) and David came late Wed night. So for Wed we decided to go to Colonial Williamsburg. We didn't get tickets and just walked around. They had some of the stuff blocked off to ticketers only though, so that was kind of stinky, but I think everyone got the gist.

This is what happens to parents who are bad..

Thurs morning we got up bright and early and headed out to Washington, DC. We rented bikes like we did with the Hargroves, it makes seeing everything soooo much easier!Here's a couple of fun shots...
At the White House. We were a little annoyed that Barack wouldn't let us in!
At the Capitol..
Sporting Texas pride at the WWII Memorial.
Matchy-Matchy
So at DC we spent Thurs riding bikes around to see all the monuments and then finished the day with a tour of the Capitol. Friday we headed out to Arlington Cemetary, the Air & Space Museum, the Natural History Museum, and the Holocaust Museum. After a long day of walking around (wishing we still had our bikes) we headed back to Williamsburg.

Saturday (July 4th) we were pretty pooped so we just hung our house and played games and watched Independence Day, pretty appropriate we thought. For the evening though, we headed to Historic Yorktown to watch the fireworks.

(I think you can see a little baby bump in this pic!)Here's the fireworks behind Victory Monument, which I thought was pretty appropriate b/c it symbolizes victory over the British, which is why we celebrate July 4th.Sunday was a rainy day, so after church we just hung around the house playing games and watching movies.

Monday we headed to Virginia Beach. It was pretty cloudy and windy, so of course I was cold.But it wasn't too cold for Luke and David to go swimming and skimboarding.And of course we had to eat at Cheddars at least once while Carol was here...she had to have her onion rings :)

And Tues was everyone's last day here. We headed to Historic Jamestowne to check out the archeology (mainly for Lunsford).And that's it. We had a great time with the fam and hope they'll come visit us again soon! :)
