Williamsburg and old BFF

Mommy's old BFF from Junior High facebooked us to let us know she would be in town for a family reunion. We had not seen each other for at least 30 years! Their reunion was being held in Williamsburg, VA. Abby and I met my BFF and her family for dinner one evening. We were a little early so we walked around a bit and took some pictures in the historic area. I think this is a Bull maybe?

Abby wasn't sure but thought he looked a little silly.

Then we found some sheep.

We found this big old tree that looked like a monster. It was huge.

Sitting on the monster tree.

Monster feet.


Monster head.

After a quick wardrobe change we met Mommy's BFF and some of her family :)

Took this picture of the Moon on our way home. The picture doesn't show it but it was Giant.

Yes we have some tomato's

Abby's Aunt Annetta gave us a little tomato plant to grow. It started out about 2 feet tall and then I thought I killed it. Once I re potted it it pepped up and grew and grew. Abby has been so excited as we waited and watched for our cherry tomato's to appear.

Our plant in early June.

Late June and finally some tomato's!

And now finally it's late July and we have red cherry tomato's! Abby was so excited and couldn't wait to pick them. She really doesn't like tomato's but so wants too :)

Our poor tomato plant. All of these upper 90's days we have been having with no rain and the occasional thunderstorm have really taken their toll. We water faithfully each day but our poor tomato plant is turning yellow :(

We brought our little crop in and washed them. Abby wanted to like them so badly that she even tasted one. I should have taken a picture of the taste. Unfortunately it was a no go but I was proud of her for trying. Next year we will definitely plant a little garden :)
