We spent the first half of the week in Virginia with OZ. We'd never been to Virginia so we decided to check it out. We checked out the Battlefield at Petersburg which is adjacent to where OZ is staying at Fort Lee. We looked at the canons and walked through the visitors center to view some of the Civil War history. OZ was excited to take us for a Wawa sandwich (sort of like a subway). We checked out the Museum of the Confederacy and the Confederate White House. We drove down Monument Ave to see the monuments/statues in the middle of the street of Grant & Lee and Arthur Ash. Taylor popped a little tooth on the bottom this week, which probably is the reason for our longest night ever with her while we were in Virginia. We took a nice drive through the country passing many peanut farms on our way to Newport News. On the way back we drove through Williamsburg and stopped for dinner. We wish we would have spent the day there. Maybe one day we'll get back.
Made it back to Phoenix to a flooded garage. Thank-God for my cousin Michael! He turned off the water and replaced the water expansion tank... and while he was at it, hooked up the water softener. Yep, he's Amazing!
It's great to be home. Now we're just ready for Papa to be home with us. Soon.
See you next week. Click here for pictures from the week.Meg.
