This last weekend Grandma Cindy came to visit. We loaded her up and headed to Virginia. We went to Williamsburg, Jamestown Settlement, and Yorktown. Aiden did really well and loved having his Grandma hold him all the time. He also loved her tickles. You should have heard him laugh.
Overall, not very impressed with Virginia. Everything cost money to see and it wasn't reasonable. If you wanted to walk through historic Williamsburg it was a minimum of $37, in order to go into the buildings and see reenactments.

Jamestown Settlement was $14, again just to see what it would have been like. Almost all of the buildings, ships, and so on (in all 3 places) were replicas. It was a bit disappointing to pay all that money and know everything there was reconstructed. So we paid a bunch of money to see what it might have been like.
BUT... We had fun with Grandma!

I guess I'll scratch off site-seeing in VA from my list. What a bummer!

I found out after the trip that if you get a speeding ticket in VA and are going 20+ over OR are going over 80 MPH you can get a $2500 speeding fine and up to 1 year in prison! Thankfully we didn't meet any cops.
