  1. You mean people actually make non-edible frosting? That's just wrong!

    Jeff and I went to Jamestown and Williamsburg when I was pregnant with Princess, and I loved both, but like Williamsburg a bit more. It's supposed to have a homeschool week.

  2. No, it's edible playdoh -one made from frosting and one made from peanut butter. Sorry if I was unclear.
    Yes, we have been to both -one time to Williamburg's Homeschool week with about 50 homeschoolers in our support group. My kids all liked Jamestown better. I liked it too, but I think it was simply because I had already been to Willamsburg several times but that was the only time I have been to Jamestown. The boys are studying Jamestown in history soon so I thought it would be a good time to go again.

  3. GREAT list!!!
