When uploading photos to One Drive I realized I had not shared some fun family times of last month. Even though these are a few weeks old I do enjoy remembering the good times.
We went down to visit the boys over President's Day weekend. They had gotten a trampoline from Santa that their Dad was putting together when we arrived. If any of you have ever had the pleasure of putting one together you know it's not hard, but quite time consuming. The boys were delighted beyond belief at the finished project!
Yes the weather was warmer last month than this month. Alex loves to wear Bermuda shorts on days that are 60 and above.
Of course the big kids had to give it a try.
I have a lot more sense than these guys, so I declined the temptation.
Miles came home to stay with us for the weekend. It's the first time he has done that without his brother. We thoroughly enjoyed the alone time with just him.
Ferry Farm had a celebration honoring George Washington's birthday. Miles wanted to go so we ventured out for a little history lesson and fun at Washington's Boyhood home. I've mentioned before about the building of the home on the original foundation. We took this opportunity to see it up close.
First you must partake of birthday cake!
And a little sip of cherry tea!
Then off to play Colonial games.
We walked over to the site of the home construction. It's so exciting to see the home coming together.
The home is being built as close as possible to original building methods. Hand forged nails can be seen on the building.
Miles wanted to run down the hill to the river. The Washington home sits at the top of the hill overlooking the Rappahannock River and the city of Fredericksburg.
That's him in the burgundy shirt.
We reminded Miles that George Washington must have run up and down this hill as a child, just like you did!
