Scherenschnitte in Williamsburg
Back in Williamsburg with Mom we set off to the Dewitt Wallace Decorative Arts and Abby Rockefeller Folk Art Museum. We enjoyed exhibits of period costume and accessories, grandfather clocks, furniture and even participated in a craft project. The educators were hosting a Scherenschnitte (German art of paper cutting) activity. Dan, Mom and I had great fun making our own works of art to take home. Dan even made a card of a dog howling in the setting sun for Annie - she loved her card and has it perched a top her crate.
After touring the museum and getting crafty we explored a bit of Colonial Williamsburg by taking a tour of a Tavern that Dan and I had never seen before. Mom's last night in town we treated her out to seafood at Berret's Seafood Restaurant. Sadly they were out of soft shell crab so Mom enjoyed the fresh catch of the day instead. The next day we said our goodbyes and I dropped Mom at the train station. Annie, Dan and I were very sad to see her go - what a great visit we had!
