Sunday, February 3 - Day 3 of Girls' Weekend!

Kelli and Callie walking around the Governor's Palace during the tour...
Look how impressed she was with herself!
Inside the master bedroom of the Governor's's amazing how small they were...beds were tiny too!
Just walking around - Callie and Mom were playing games with each cute!
In front of the Governor's Palace after our tour
My favorite part of the tour - the kitchen!!! Don't you wish you had a meal like this prepared for you every day!
Talk about a dream storage pantry!
I took this picture for the boys. It's an original oil painting, but I thought the guy looked like Captain Hook, and he is doing the "Spiderman" fingers - shooting a web! :) They loved the picture!

This picture was taken inside the new Yankee Candle shop in Williamsburg - it is AMAZING!!!! Quite the destination, let me tell you!! They have 6 or 7 shops inside it, and see how it looks like you're outside in a courtyard? Just so cool!
The four sisters (When I was showing David these pictures, he said "Do you ALWAYS stand in birth order?" The answer is YES!!! :) I am so grateful for my 3 sisters!
This was from Kim & I - a frame that says "I love my Grandkids" with a picture of all of them from Christmas.
Mom reading the card that Josiah made her
Out front of the Yankee Candle store..took us a while to find it, but it was well worth it! :)

One of my FAVORITE pictures. This was Sunday night after I got home. The boys had their baths, Callie was in bed, and I was reading to them before bed. See how close and cuddled up to me they were?? I missed my boys! And I think they missed me a bit too!

Sunday morning, we woke up in our hotel and enjoyed a few more sights in Williamsburg. We were able to take the tour of the Governor's Palace and stop by the Wythe Candy Shop (amazing!). We then drove over to the Yankee Candle shop (by way of a LONG detour) and how incredible that was!! It is an experience in itself! We had to say our goodbyes after that and take the girls to the airport. It was a wonderful weekend to celebrate our mom who is SO special to each of us. I am so thankful for the memories we made together (and thankful to David for keeping the boys to make it possible for me to go!)
