Robert visits

Last weekend, Uncle Robert came to visit us! The Williamsburg Craft Beer Fest was on Sunday and he ended up coming down on Saturday to hang out. The guys started off by hitting up The Virginia Beer Company, and then after the little girls woke up from their naps, we headed off to Busch Gardens for the evening. Eleanor thought it was the best thing in the world that he was visiting and asked him to ride all her favorite rides with her, like Up Elmo, Oscar's Whirly Worms, Turkish Delight (the teacups), and the Battering Ram.

Chris and Robert stayed a little longer than the girls and me did to hit up all the roller coasters.

The next day, the guys went to the brew fest and the girls and I met them down in Colonial Williamsburg a little later. Eleanor was quite a trooper. I didn't bring the stroller and it was definitely a huge mistake. I think she ended up walking almost a mile but was NOT happy about it and I will definitely think twice before I decide not to bring the stroller again. Chris even ended up having to wear Jane in the carrier because I had a pinched nerve in my neck and it was too painful. Also, as a side note, Chris is against the carrier, so this is literally the first and only time he has carried any of our children in it! So here is everyone taking a little rest for the little legs:

Eleanor passed out in the car on the way home (at like 5:30 in the evening, ah!) so I had to wake her up. When Robert left after dinner, Eleanor cried. She was so sad that he was leaving that she even called me back into her room after bedtime to talk about it again.

But they did have a little time to wrestle before he left :)
