Last Day in Williamsburg

With one day left of our mini vacation, we headed to Duck Donuts for a morning snack.  These are the best donuts and it is a chain in the OBX that we have been to while on vacation.  We did not realize they had one near here until we were driving home from dinner the night before.  They are so good!
Next up was the Virginia Living Museum, which was mix between a museum and a zoo.  I absolutely love this picture of the boys inside of the turtle:
Evan finally worked up the nerve to go inside the turtle:
And then he was loving it:
Outside there was a 3/4 mile boardwalk trail that brought us by all sorts of animals, including these impressive bald eagles, which we were so close to:
After we returned back to our hotel, Eric and I took a nice 2 hour nap.  We then took a walk around the grounds of the hotel and played on the playground, played tetherball, played shuffleboard and took a little walk on a trail through the woods.  After dinner, we went swimming at the indoor pool, followed by a smores night out by the fire pit.  We'll be up and on our way home around 8:00 AM tomorrow and I wish we could stay longer.  When it came time to pack up to drive down here on Sunday (after being on the road for much of the last week), I was second guessing our decision to do this trip.  But I am so happy we did.  The kids loved being somewhere new and it felt like we actually got to relax and have a real vacation.  But we'll be back home tomorrow to celebrate New Year's Eve and then it's back to work/school on January 2nd.
