Our family just returned from vacation. I can not tell you how amazing it felt to get out and do something after being inside for almost a full year! With the exception of hospital and doctor visits.
When we decided to go somewhere we wanted to make sure we chose are location that most everything could be done outside!
So I chose Colonial Williamsburg!I have wanted to visit for such a long time! It was even a destination that has been on a living life list!
I am going to say something that may shock some of you who know me well! That know just how much I love Disney.
This was by far my most favorite vacation I have taken!
My amazing husband made sure before we even ever left to go on vacation to get things that would help make traveling easier for me! Since the first surgery that caused the aspiration I am unable to sleep flat. I sleep in a elevated bed, almost in a setting straight up position. So he researched on Amazon and found me the most amazing wedge system to take with me! They can be put into vacuumed sealed bags for storage and easy travel!
These wedges allowed me to be able to sleep in the bed with my hubby while we were there and not in a chair! Which is what normally ends up being my bed! They are memory foam but not hot at all they are covered with a bamboo fabric which keeps you cool!
They are super comfy and I slept well using them!
here is a picture of them!
If your interested in a set for yourself check them out by following the link below.
One other thing he purchased me was a portable oxygen machine! It's hard to be independent and to be able to get out and do things when you are tethered to a oxygen concentrator or a heavy tank, The Inogen Oxygen machine is only about 5lbs. I can carry it on my shoulder or even place it in another bag to be carried with your purse. Having lupus changed our whole life! It changed how we do everything and how I have to live life! This little machine requires a prescription but was so worth it!
If you would like to check it out here is the link for it as well!I am not getting paid to share this info! I just love sharing great finds that may help others as well!
We booked our stay at the Wyndham Kingsgate Resort. The resort was nothing short of amazing! Our Villa was spacious and very clean! Very well laid out and most importantly handicap accessible. Which was very important for me and to make it easy on my family!
I was so impressed both the indoor and outdoor pools had handicap lifts so someone who is confined to a wheelchair all the time could enjoy the pool as well!
That for me was awesome!They also offered put put on grounds for free it was 18 holes and a lot of fun! We played a round our last evening there!
They had other cool outdoor activities for families to engage in. A huge outdoor chess board and checkers board! I am considering doing a checkerboard on our patio!
They also had the coolest outdoor connect four games! I loved them they were super cool! My children's church would love a few of those bad boys!
they also had corn hole and table tennis!They have a game room on-site along with a theater but due to Covid they were unable to be open!
There were ponds with fountains and swings to set on and just relax and watch the water! A beautiful Gazebo you could enjoy setting to just watch nature or do like my daughter and her bestie and have breakfast and devotion time there!
We had dear grazing right outside our Villa the very first night! Like I said This place was amazing and you could have an amazing staycation just by staying here!
They even have their own cafe! It was also closed due to Covid at the moment. I am sure as things begin to open more it will reopen as well. As well a on sight gym and Sauna.
If you are looking for a wonderful place to stay in Williamsburg I would so check this place out! We got an amazing rate for it on vrbo!
Here is the link to check this amazing resort out!
Another amazing thing about this resort it was literally just minutes away from Colonial Williamsburg!
Also really good places to eat and a grocery store close by! If you would happen to go to Williamsburg check out the Fat Tuna! There good was amazing! I got a oyster po boy and it was amazing! You could tell the oysters were fresh!Oh yeah their key lime pie was to die for!
Here is there website so you can check their menu out!
Now let me tell you about Colonial Williamsburg! If you have never been before be sure to get multiple day tickets. There is so much to see you don't want to rush any of it! So make plans to at least spend two days there! We did not do Jamestown and Yorktown this visit due to the fact I really do not think I would have been able to without wearing my body straight into a flare.
There is something enchanting about how it feels as you walk or in my case ride in a wheelchair to the entrance of Colonial Williamsburg!
The thoughts of the feet of this who had walked the very same land you were on. That paved the way to the America we live in today, I had to ask myself would they be proud of what we have became today?
The Walk up to the entrance was beautiful! We passed under a brick tunnel that had a beautiful little creek that ran beside it!
The ballroom was my favorite of the palace I could almost feel the music in the air that would have played all through the the night. It was said a ball would have lasted till dawn.
I could almost feel the satins and silks as they rustled through the night dancing the night away!
These dresses made of the finest silks and adorned with beautiful bowes and flowers! We we were in heaven until we realized that the lowest cost on the dresses were around $450. Gulp right there!
