Next month I will have lived in Virginia for 3 years! In that time Michael and I have traveled all over the country and Tahiti. We have also taken several day and weekend trips around Virginia to the mountains in Harrisonburg, Charlottesville, Monticello, Staunton, Fort Royal, and Winchester; around D.C. in Georgetown, Arlington, and Fredericksburg; to the beach at Virginia Beach; to an oyster festival in Urbanna; up the Eastern Shore to Chincoteague, and historical towns like Smithfield, Jamestown, and Williamsburg.
I have loved most of the places that we have visited but Williamsburg is one of my favorites. Luckily it is only about an hour and a half away so we go frequently. There are two ways that we can get there but I love when we take the ferry. This past Sunday we decided to head there for the day and take Kellan on his first ferry ride!

|Mommy and Kellan...look at that belly poking out!|

|Kellan chewing on an enormous carrot slice!|
|And of course we had to get something from the bakery! Red velvet cupcake with cream cheese icing and chocolate on chocolate :)|
After all of this shopping we headed to one of our favorite restaurants in Williamsburg, Food for Thought. We have eaten here several times and it has always been delicious. Out of all of our trips to Williamsburg we have eaten as some not so good restaurants too. At Seafare Seafood Restaurant, the food was ok but they charge for every drink refill! Marino's Italian Restaurant was just REALLY not good and Kyoto Japanese Steakhouse and Sushi Bar they charge extra for rice!...at a hibachi restaurant! We had never heard of such a thing and we have had much better food at other Japanese steakhouses.

|Michael's salmon was gone when I went to take the picture so here are our strawberry and blueberry crepes for dessert!|
|They have lots of inspirational quotes on the walls, this is my favorite|
