Colonial Williamsburg in the spring

We have been visiting Colonial Williamsburg almost weekly (or more!) now that it is finally spring. My work schedule has been very busy for the months of February, March, and April, but we've still been finding some time to get down there, generally on Fridays or weekends. With spring comes the birth of the baby lambs each year - this year a set of triplets were born! They were named last weekend: Jamie, Yorkie, and Willie (named after the historic triangle of Jamestown, Yorktown, and Williamsburg, if you couldn't guess). Eleanor likes to visit the lambs every time we go down there if they're out.

We've also had the opportunity to meet up with friends a few times and have play dates depending on who is available at the time. These are obviously Eleanor's favorite times because she loves playing with her friends.

We also try to see the horses when we go, but she's a little more reserved about those. She tends to watch from afar and point.

So far this spring has been wonderful. I am looking forward to next month when my work schedule becomes much more flexible and we will hopefully have more time to enjoy the outdoors. We had a big rain last night that thankfully settled some of the pollen down, and we are hoping it doesn't come back in quite as full force again this year. We are all tired of being coated in yellow!
