Good to be home . . .

I guess I'm not the adventurous type, because it sure does feel good to be back home from vacation. Don't get me wrong, we had a wonderful time. But I'm always happy to get home, get the fridge stocked, get the laundry washed, and get back to "normal" life.

Our trip was to Colonial Williamsburg for a Family Reunion with my mother's side of the family. I was sure I had gotten a shot of the 25ish of us all posing together, but I guess my camera was hidden away when the picture was taken. Hopefully some relatives will upload their copies soon! The best I can do is a picture of me and my brother at Jamestown, with my aunt and uncle in the back.


How can you tell that's me, and that we are related? Why, by the way we are both desperately trying to ignore the camera (and Pea) in the hopes of not getting our picture taken!! Our conversation probably went something like this:
"Is he gone yet?"
"Nope, still there."
"Well for goodness sake, don't look - and certainly don't smile!"
"Why doesn't he just go take a shot of the scenery?"

Speaking of scenery, Virgina is gorgeous. Very very hot and very very humid, but also very very pretty. See . . .


Oh my, what's that in the left corner? Could it be a yarn shop? Why yes, it is a yarn shop!! In fact, we found a few yarn shops while there. And some yarn happened to follow me home, along with some beads and a sheep.


No silly, not a real sheep. Although that would be cool, wouldn't it? We'll have to see about that for the next vacation souvenir!!

Virginia is such a great place to visit, and you had a family reunion too -- how fun! But the yarn is a really nice souvenir and consolation for having to return to real life. :)

I love your new sheep!

Are you ready for a new cat/kitten yet?

Pretty yarn haul! Sounds like a good vacation. I'm always glad to get back home too.

Welcome home! Any trip that ends with pretty yarn souvenirs is a good trip... do we get full details??

Tamara said...

Ooooh, look at all that yummy yarn! I'd be interested in a little more detail on that purpley brown skein in the middle. It looks so plump and juicy!

That sounds exactly like the conversation my siblings and I have when my mom has her camera out snapping photos. Too funny!

Looks like some great yarn followed you home!
