Just got back from our vacation in Colonial Williamsburg

The Water Country USA parking rip-off gate ($15!!)

Our two-bedroom timeshare

No pics of Williamsburg yet. Lots of fun there though. Definitely worth going to. Kids enjoyed it and, unlike most theme parks, they actually learned something in the process. The town is really well done and the folks who work there look very authentic in there period dress. The re-enactments of Benedict Arnold's speech to the captured city of Williamsburg and later George Washington's visit just before the battle of Yorktown were very well done indeed. We stayed in my brother-in-law's timeshare at Fairfield Kingsgate (very nice too, pic above), a 2 bedroom condo with a kitchen and laundry facilities. The clubhouse had indoor/outdoor pools, tennis, a restaurant, a gameroom and free wifi!! We also visited Water Country USA. Also a fun experience, especially in the heat. One gripe there, charging for parking for a place that cannot be reached without a car sucks. Include the parking in the ticket price. It would get rid of the huge line of cars at the door and annoy people a bit less.

Deathly hot in NYC

Man this bites. Subways are like an electric swamp.

Free seats :)

The view from our seats this game

My son, Jordan, as a bleacher bum.

This is what I like about the Mets. Fans still matter to them. On July 4th, I got an e-mail from the Mets that said, in a nutshell, print out a few copies of this e-mail and present them at the picnic area on July 5th and enjoy the game on us. Pretty good deal, especially since the Mets are leading their division and Shea is packed this season. The Mets always seem to do this. We get tickets for being members of the fan club for kids, tickets for the little league, tickets for the school, all at no charge. And this in a season when they could probably sell every seat they've got. That's class.

p.s.-They walloped the Pirates 5 zip.
