Greetings from Virginia Beach!
Good morning from Virginia Beach!
We packed up the SUV Friday night, somehow found space in the car for our kids early Saturday morning, and we headed out on a road trip to Virginia Beach!
Our four kids are really good travelers, so the drive went very well. We only had to stop 3 times, which was awesome!
We did hit quite a bit of traffic in several parts of Virginia. Because of that, the 7 hour 25 minute drive ended up taking about 10 hours. We were beyond thrilled when we finally reached the ocean! Right after checking in and grabbing some dinner, we rushed down to the beach. The sun was setting, but the kids were too excited to wait!
It was Liam's first trip to the ocean, and he LOVED it. He kept rushing toward the water, then spinning around and racing away from it as the waves rolled in!
After a really good night's sleep, we woke up to a beautiful day.
Grant, Liam, and I woke up before everyone else. We ended up sitting on the balcony and watching an early morning flag football game. Finally, it was time to wake everyone up!
After hitting up the breakfast buffet, we spent our day at the beach! It's my absolute favorite thing to do!
I could have lasted all day, but the kids were ready to come up after about 4 hours. We had an early dinner, then decided to check out the indoor pool. They were fans!
After swimming, we went for a walk on the boardwalk, played on the beach, watched the Fear the Walking Dead premiere, watched fireworks over the ocean, and went for a night walk on the beach. (Real pictures to come after we get home!!!)
I have a few posts lined up for this week, including a guest post. Meanwhile, I'll be spending all my time with my family!
Our first full day at the beach was perfect, and we're looking forward to 5 more days just like it!
When was the last time you were at the beach?
