One of my family's favorite places out east is Colonial Williamsburg.  But in the 14 years that my parents have lived in Virginia I had never actually been there when they visited!  This time we finally made it happen.  The week after Christmas we packed up and spent the day walking around, enjoying the cute little colonial houses and beautiful Christmas decor.  It was a super chilly day but we all had a great time.

We borrowed a double stroller from someone in the ward and the kids were happy to be snuggled up next to each other...for about 5 minutes :)
Nate had the great idea of going back to the car to grab Sawyer's new balance bike (which he totally brought on purpose cause I think he was just as, if not more, excited about the new bike as Sawyer).  Sawyer was SO happy to ride that thing around ALL day at Williamsburg.  It was the perfect place to get in some good practice because there were no cars driving around...pedestrians only...and Sawyer, that is.  He got a lot of attention that day from passers-by.  Everyone was very impressed by his balance bike skills.

Little Violet was so cold...but she did great snuggled up to me all day.  I appreciated the extra warmth just as much :)

Had a nice little retreat from the cold inside the Seasons Restaurant.  We had the whole room to ourselves!  It was so nice and relaxing...

This picture just cracks me up.  Syd jokes that Violet was crying because of her super bad hair regrowth.  So Sydney added some arrows for emphasis.  I love it.  
Once again Sydney did a great job of capturing the beauty that was all around us (pictures were taken from her blog, again...thanks Syd!)

I'm so glad we finally went to Williamsburg together! It turned out to be such a fun day despite the cold!! Taking Sawyer's bike was the best idea!! He was entertained and stayed warm! Great detail pictures, thanks to Syd!
