We were invited to come back to Virginia to see London baptised and to be there for hers and Jonas' birthdays. So Bobbie, Great Grandma Putnam and myself flew back and spent 9 days visiting Dave, Sunny and the kids.

While we were back there we got to travel around and see alot of fun, interesting things. We spent a few days just driving through the Shanandoa National Park, the Blue Ridge Mountains and West Virginia. It was beautiful and GREEEEEEEEEN. We had a ball.

While we were there Sunny asked if I would help Dave put Shutters on their house. I had no idea how much of a difference shutters could make!

One of the interesting things we got to see was Thomas Jeffersons home Montecello. I was really surprised and excited to see a very large collection of Lewis and Clark items in the entrance foyer.





Bobbie, Sunny, Zeke, Jonas, and Great Grandma Putnam on Jeffersons "back porch".













These guys are English Woods dancers. They only dance on May 1st of each year. This tradition goes back to the 1300s in England. The tradition has never been broken in that entire time.

It was actually kind of funny to watch but the guys doing it were laughing and having a good time.



Of course the real reason we were there was for Londons Baptism. She was a real sweety to us and Great Grandma Putnam. Grandma slept on Londons bottom bunk. London was worried that something was wrong with Grandam because of the "strange noises" that Grandma made while she was sleeping. London would also turn down Grandmas bed every night for her.

We had a great time and saw an amazing amount of beautiful scenery and countryside.

Thaks Dave, Sunny and kids for putting us up.

The pictures are great! I am glad you guys had a good time. I can't believe the before and after pictures of Sunny's house. The shutters really helped.

Dee and Bobbie, I am so glad that Sunny was able to find a home in Virginia that looks so much like her "Family Home". Are you guys looking into shutters?

LOL Robyn
