ChristmasTown Fail!

On Saturday, we loaded (literally--5 people in 5 seats) up the car to head to ChristmasTown in Williamsburg for a fun-filled Christmas activity   Only when we were in line to pay for parking, we say the flashing sign.....PARK TEMPORARILY CLOSED!  WHAT?  Are you kidding me?  (Actually a few of us had been pre-warned of this happening but we were willing to risk it!).

So we quickly invented a new plan, go to Yankee Candle and grab dinner.

Well we still were not ready to admit defeat, so from dinner, we decided to walk around Colonial Williamsburg for a bit and see the lights.  Turns out there are not too many lights in Colonial Williamsburg (maybe they are keeping with the theme of no electricity during well Colonial time), so we really just walked through the cold streets singing Christmas carols and being goofy!

On my way home, I stopped by one last decorated house and wanted to document it as well :)
We might get a second shot at Christmastown before the year ends, we shall see....
