We introduced August to the William and Mary tradition of dipping bread ends into House Dressing from the Cheese Shop.  He didn’t love it.  We didn’t mind–more for us!  Yummm…

August explored the Wren Building.

We drove up to Harrisonburg for Uncle Mark’s graduation from James Madison University.  Congrats to him!  It was a beautiful day, but August was more interested in running around the soccer field with an umbrella than sitting through the ceremony. Can’t say I blame him.  😉

After the ceremony, Uncle Mark took us on a tour of campus.  Towards the end, we decided to take a snooze on the quad.  The boys in the shade…

…the girls soaked up the sun (and got the sunburns to prove it–oops!).

Uncle Mark told us that one of the JMU senior traditions is streaking the quad (sounds familiar…).  August decided to give it a whirl.

On the way back to NYC, our caravan decided to stop at the Hotel Hershey in Hershey, Pennsylvania, home of Hershey chocolates.  It was the midpoint of our journey, and we had a lovely impromptu Mother’s Day lunch!  The place was PACKED with folks gussied up for fancy brunches and buffets scattered throughout the hotel (some were FANCY!!!), so August spent a small fortune on tossing pennies into a fountain while we waited for our table.

Great, quick trip to Virginia.  And you know what they say:
