Heading out to Norfolk on the train to the Children's Festival.

Anya is excited.  Sasha is zoned out with her pod.

We were greeted at the gate by fairies!

Then a stop at the dress up and make up tent

Anya was very excited about the make up

It was a crazy hot day for October.

Well into the 90's

Sasha makes some music too!

Sasha got to nerd out with some lady Mandalorians. (That's Star Wars for you uninitiated)

Sasha pets a pony

Alice and the Red Queen arrive along with the rest for a tea party


We stayed for a while but eventually the heat drove us back home.

We wanted to have a fun night at a hotel with a pool, so we went to Williamsburg.


Sasha & Anya have a Ripley's Believe it or Not book in the car that they love to look at, so we went to the museum.

This whole wall was a giant touchscreen.  Iron man made from car parts.

Match stick Capitol Building and Stephen Colbert made from thumb tacks!


This was a neat hologram of Ripley welcoming you to the museum.

All sorts of oddities

Sasha liked this Vampire Killing Kit

Samurai suit

2 Headed Calf.  Ewwwwwww!

I trilobite to rival Grandpa Fisher's?

Shrunken heads and presidential portraits painted on feathers.


This Lincoln portrait was made entirely of dead butterflies.  Fore Score and Seven Hundred dead bugs!

The kids cheer on Holly in the Mission Impossible Laser Room Challenge.


This was a cool fun house tunnel that lit up in the dark and rotated around the bridge.


The pool at the hotel

The reason for the whole trip

Swimmy fun

Anya got to try out one of her new swim suits


And her tongue poking skills.

Riding bikes at Trashmore

Anya is getting better and better.

As the sun reflects off the lake we end our October fun.
