colonial williamsburg [part one].

Brick sidewalks, coarse white napkins, ginger cakes, drums, unrefined sugar. My family and I spent the weekend in Colonial Williamsburg; it was so so so so so much fun. I'll save you the history lesson, but it's set around the time when America was declaring its independence from the king. It has to do with the Boston Tea Party, George Washington, Lord Dunmore, et cetera. 



There is no way you can see everything there in only two days. First we stopped by the silversmith's shop. All the people who work there are fully dressed in colonial-style clothes.


We saw the printing press room. 




We stopped by and looked through their market.

For a lunch we ate at The King's Arms Tavern. Mom and Dad got corn chowder and Little sis and I got ham and cheese sandwiches. If you ever go to Colonial Williamsburg and eat at one of the taverns, you must try their root beer. It's absolutely delicious.





We went to the apothecary and saw all the old-fashioned medicines. 


So that's a little glimpse of day one :D More coming soon!
