colonial adventure part II

after touring richmond, we visited some pretty cool places:

~the capitol building~

~leave it to us to ditch our tour group and take pictures by an air vent~

~who has time to shop when there is a game of checkers to be won?~


~these two gems rock my world~
photo 1: she can totally pull this look off
photo 2: momma was so excited to use her "parasol" on the carriage ride
photo 3: candid.  baby sister really is that beautiful always.
photo 4: my momma is radiant

~perfect timing~
"mom! get a picture of us in front of the carriage before it passes! hurry!"
success. way to go momma.

~next stop: jamestown~
fun fact: did you know that when pocahontas married john rolfe and moved to england, she converted to christianity and took the name "rebecca"? 

~dragonfly at jamestown~

~mount vernon, home of general george washington~

~tomb of george washington~
i cannot show pictures of his tomb without sharing my feelings of respect and admiration i have for mr. washington. i truly believe he held a sacred duty to lead this nation in its first stage of life. he was a man of God, a man of true honor, integrity and strength. he credited all successes in war and life to Divine Providence and showed continued devoted to God. after spending seven straight years in war with little food, pain, and no pay (and going blind), he quietly took up his belongings, refused the offer to be king, and returned to his wife. 

~the ever beautiful washington d.c. temple~
fun fact: the d.c. temple is the second largest temple in the world!


~chocolate world, hershy, pa~
i have never seen so much candy in one place. it's a real life willy wonka chocolate world.

~eat my weight in chocolate? totally possible~
