Project 365: Week 44

As you may know, this week we were on vacation in Virginia. I forced myself to choose only a few photos per day for this post. I will have to do a separate vacation post with the complete photo album of fun.

Visited Polyface Farms. Perhaps you've heard of it on this must-see movie.

Vacation Day #2 Highlights

Made a flying trip (having had no time for a shower or makeup) to Staunton, VA this morning to see Joel Salatin (OF Polyface Farms) speak at the Senior Center. Yeah, I didn't exactly fit in with the crowd. You can pretty much consider me a "groupie" of the borderline-stalker variety. ;)

Vacation Day #3 Highlights

We were going to go to Williamsburg today, but there were thunderstorms in the area, so we opted to visit Grand Caverns, the oldest show cave in America, which is only maybe 20 minutes away from where we were staying.

Vacation Day #4 Highlights

Finally made it to Colonial Williamsburg. We quickly learned one really needs about three days to tour this area. It is rich with amazing history.

Vacation Day #5 Highlights

Somehow we mustered the motivation to get.back.in.the.car. and drive to D.C. today. There were a few really important things we needed to see.

And we were blessed to be able to hook up with an old friend.

Extra Vacation Day #6 Highlights

We were supposed to be heading home this morning. But Paul decided to take one extra day so we could actually relax some before the horrific interesting two-day trip back home. We spent it watching college football, specifically the Hogs, playing at the playground, doing laundry, and running errands. Overall, a day just like we needed.

Well, this was one week I didn't have any trouble coming up with something to photograph! Unfortunately, though, I find it much more challenging to get GOOD pictures on vacation. There's a lot of "Quick, get the kids in front of that and I'll snap a picture!" and a lot of fast-walking from one feature to the next. Oh, well. We certainly experienced much! I wonder what Sara and the others have done with their weeks...


  1. looks like a fantastic vacation!!! Can't wait to see the rest of the pictures!

    My dad went to William and Mary and I have always wanted to visit there and Williamsburg....someday.

  2. Wow - that's a LOT for one week! It looks like you had a good time though. I love how Atticus hardly ever looks at the camera - too cute!

  3. Looks like a great time was had by all! So neat you got to visit Polyface farm! Love the pic of the kids in the cow cart and the one in the cave where it looks like the younger boys are sharing a secret. And what a smart daddy for taking that extra day before heading back! Hope you have a safe trip home!

  4. I've always wanted to go to Williamsburg. Can't wait to see the rest of your pictures. I love the one of noah and saylor.

  5. We used to live in Virginia and never had enough time to tour Williamsburg. So much to see and do.
    Great pictures. Love how the kids are all coordinated at the farm. CUTE

  6. Looks like you had a great time!! You got some great shots of the kids!!
    You look good with no make-up. Give yourself some credit. :)
    Have a great week!

  7. What a fun vaca...would love to visit all of those places and looks like the kids had a fun time too! that bat pic kinda gave me the eeby jeebies though!
