colonial adventure part I

most recently, our spontaneity took us here:

~the greenbrier~
sister, momma and i are hooked on the bachelorette, so when we arrived here where bachelorette emily took one of her dates, we wanted to act like crazed bachelorette fans. unfortunately, this place was a little too classy for that

we strolled into the greenbrier in our oh-so-comfy-not-so-attractive travel clothes. while walking on marble floors adorned with grand pianos and lush love sofas, we were a little out of place, but we didn't mind!

~papabear navigator extraordinaire~
that picture with the map?  candid. he really still uses a map...made out of paper. not an online map, or a gps, or a maps app. a paper map. i'm trying to convince him that gps is a good thing, but it's a work in progress.
however, i may or may not think it's absolutely adorable that he still uses a map

~east coast, take me back~
i can't get enough of this scenery. future summer home in virginia?

~welcome to the jefferson hotel~
 please join us at 3pm for tea time

~meet one of my dearest friends, mr. jeremías~
 i was more than thrilled to visit him in his hometown richmond, va where we got sweaty playing kinect, went out for pizza and walked around a park. this kid will change lives on his mission. see you in two elder!

~st. john's church~
on sundays in the summer, professional actors perform a reenactment of the second virginia convention of march 1775 where patrick henry voiced his famous words, "give me liberty or give me death!" wow, if you ever have the chance to stop by and see the performance, please do so. those men really did devote their lives to the cause of freedom. 

~cobblestone in rva~

~pizza from sette~
that was probably the best pizza i've ever had in my life. and that's sayin' somethin'.

~sister read the first and second book on the trip~
whenever momma suggested we put in the revolutionary war documentary, sister and i simultaneously engaged ourselves in other activities...our plan worked quite well
