Spring break can conjure up many things to many people. Our youngest grands (that are no longer little boys) went with us on a little vacation that Boo and Bear hoped they would enjoy. We've found with children that they enjoy very simple things. Simple times to create precious memories that are stored away in our hearts. We both believe we can be part of the community that supports our grandchildren to have better lives. Maybe you can remember fondly the times spent with grandparents. Maybe it was an aunt or an uncle for you. Maybe it was a kind neighbor or mentor in your church, or a teacher. We all are influenced by adults that take a interest in our growing up years.
Spending time in Colonial Williamsburg is fun for us. With two teenagers we knew we'd better do the things that they enjoy.
The weather was wonderful and quite sunny. Not warm enough for me to wear shorts, but certainly was for the boys! I don't run around quite like they do. We all enjoyed miniature golf each day.
Also swimming in the indoor pool daily.
The boys received annual passes to Busch Gardens for Christmas, so one day was spent there. It was a cool, but sunny day to enjoy with the boys. I especially marveled at the lovely flowers and blooming trees.
It was fun wandering through the different areas headed for the next exciting ride for the boys.
No, Boo and Bear did not ride this!
We did enjoy strolling through England, Italy, Germany and France.
Another day we toured Jamestown. We wanted to talk more about how their ancestor came to the New World.
Miles showed particular interest in this fact and had studied all about Jamestown in school. He talked to us in great length about it.

We went on an Archaeology Tour and learned about continued finds in the area.
Riding across the James River on the car ferry was a fun way to look back at Jamestown.
Of course we can't go to Williamsburg without going to the Colonial area.
The tulips behind the Joiners Shop were gorgeous!
The new little lambs were born a couple of weeks ago. They have grown quite a bit!
Children don't grow quite as fast, but it sure seems that way to us! We are so thankful for the times we spend with our grandchildren. We learn from them and hopefully they learn from us.
