Bill and I went to to the Yorktown Waterfront today. They have shops and a lovely beach. We also discovered an art fair! After wandering for a bit we decided to take a segway ride (which neither of us had ever done). After a quick lesson we zoomed on our way. We went up Colonial Parkway and then down to the beach and the Yorktown Victory Monument. The guide was very interesting and it was a lot of fun!

Yesterday we all went to the Williamsburg Farmer's Market. Apparently I should read my W&M e-mails more because it was also Parent's weekend. Needless to say, it was a bit crowded. But, they also had a big art festival going on, which was really neat. We strolled around and bought some fresh produce. We were going to go mini golfing, but decided that it was too hot, so we headed back to Vanessa and Randy's and had a BBQ and played board games. A great afternoon!

ABC premiered a new show tonight, "Speechless." Basic plot: A family with a special-needs child is good at dealing with the challenges it faces and excellent at creating new ones.

I was told that I had five minutes of "no adulting" yhis afternoon. So, I danced on the table.
