Oh man I feel like I have been away from blogging, both reading and writing, for so long, but really I had a much-needed 3 day break that helpful me refresh in so many ways.
In case you did not know, Ryan, my mother and father in-law and I, traveled to Williamsburg, Virginia for the weekend.
We went there this summer, and it had been my first trip since I was a little girl, which is super surprising since I am a huge history fanatic and actually majored in the subject in college.
After walking down the Duke, I fell in love and it was suggested that we have a little getaway there before the holidays to enjoy the decorations, scenery, and just have some fun the four of us.
You see, I consider myself very lucky.
I actually LOVE spending time with my in-laws, which I have heard that is somewhat abnormal; but after you see a few of our photos, perhaps you will understand why.
Now this trip did not start off very well, since Ryan and I happened to be driving down 95 south when a person who was pulled over in a routine traffic stop, decided to shoot the police officer in the leg.
This resulted in a complete shut down of the route for over two hours, making what should have been a five-hour drive, a ten-hour excursion.
As soon as we could we decided to get off at the closest exit, have a little fun in Target, grab some dinner and of course soothe the soul with some fro-yo.
Some Crave Frozen Yogurt does tend to make things a little better!
And when we finally arrived at our cottage, we both passed out from exhaustion, and anticipation for a very busy next few days.
Friday we woke early and headed into Colonial Williamsburg to soak up some history, do a little touring, shop (um Wythe Candy Shop has some AMAZING selections…look for a few major challenge foods in WIAW!), and enjoy the brisk soon-to-be-winter, day.
After a few hours of historic fun, our stomachs were grumbling and so we decided on a fabulous eatery in the heart of downtown; The Trellis.
We ate here in the summer and I had one of the best turkey sandwiches of my life.
This is saying something because let me tell you, I have consumed A LOT of turkey sandwiches in my lifetime.
The homemade nut and grain bread is without a doubt what made this a knockout….or maybe it is because it was some of the first bread I actually allowed myself to taste just a few months ago?
Since I am pretty boring and a major creature of habit, you can probably guess what I had again…
Turkey, sprouts, tomato, lettuce, balsamic onions, and this out of this world bread…Amazing!
And then to cap off a perfect lunch, my mother in-law was nice enough to book us a carriage ride through the colonial streets to get a different perspective on one of her, and now my, favorite places.
We were pretty exhausted when we finally made it back to the condo around 6:00 PM, so we rested a bit and decided to have a quick dinner of soup and bread at Panera, followed by the most fantastic frozen yogurt in the entire universe; Sweet Frog please come to Pennsylvania.
When we were here in July, every, single, night, Ryan and I had some Sweet Frog.
My husband is a pretty big advocate for the cake batter, but I have to say, I think I prefer mixing several different flavors in my cup at a time.
You only live once, right! 😉
With full bellies, a lot of laughs from watching the Hangover II (surprisingly, not as uncomfortable as I would have thought with a set of parents!) and sleepy eyes, it was definitely time for bed.
Boy was I glad to get a good night’s rest for Saturday’s activities, because we had an awesomely eventful day!
But you will have to wait to hear about those until tomorrow…
Have a super rest of the weekend!
Can’t wait to catch up on everyone’s adventures from the last few days!
