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.
