Virginia Beach Day 4

Here I am, blogging about the beach during Christmas time.  I'm just determined to finish documenting it before 2015 ends!

I'm finally making my way through all the pictures I took, day by day.  We had such a great time and I really miss the beach!

We packed in a lot of activities on our 4th day at Virginia Beach.  Everything was done on foot.  Our goal was to not get in our car the entire trip!

After our typical coffee drinking on the balcony and breakfast buffet, we took the kids swimming in the hotel pool. It was always SO steamy in the pool area, so getting pictures was pretty much impossible!

After that, Grant, Lexie, and Liam headed back up to the hotel room while Dylan, Lily, and I hit the beach! Grant was still REALLY sunburned and didn't want to sit in the sun. Late August is the BEST time to go to the beach.  There were only a few people vacationing!

We spent most of the afternoon on the beach, but headed in when the waves got really big!

After our showers, we grabbed some dinner near our hotel.  The girls LOVED the wishing well across the street!

After that, we moved on to the awesome pirate ship playground on the beach.

After the kids finished playing, we strolled the boardwalk.  Along the way, we discovered a circus performance in the square. The kids were enthralled! Sweet Lily kept saying, "Oh, how I wish they would pick me!" every single time they chose an audience member to assist.

It was completely dark when the circus ended, so we took our night walk on the beach.  Grant and the kids searched for crabs and shells while Liam snoozed in the Ergo.

We ended the night with a dip in the indoor pool.

It was such a fun, exhausting day.  The older kids immediately crawled into bed and Liam couldn't even make it through tooth brushing!

At the end of the day, we couldn't even believe that vacation was already halfway over.  It always goes WAY too quickly!  

Did you go on vacation this year?
