Well, read this first, and THEN close your eyes.
Yep, you guessed it, Virginia Beach!! First of all, you can open your eyes now. (Of course you knew that, right, or you wouldn't still be reading!!??) Secondly, we are so lucky to live in an area where the beach is SO incredible. The sand is awesome, the waves are perfect and the weather ... well, that could be a *little* cooler, but hey, we'll take it. It's a family-orientated beach...so there isn't a *huge* amount of weirdos.
So I'll just have to tell you about our wonderful day! We were there for about three hours and even Grandma came with us! **yay!!** The weather was great, and the kids....OMG, the kids - all of them, had SOOO much fun! I'll start by saying Kiersten and Sammy had fun in the water until Sammy saw a crab and a jelly fish - then she wanted no part of the ocean except for collecting shells, LOL. Kiersten braved the dangerous waters (smile) and had a blast in and out of the waves with Uncle Sam! Zach, Addie and Ave stayed close to the water line except Avery LOVED when the tide would come in....she'd spread her legs apart .... turn towards us (away from the water) and let the water rush around her. Addie did that until she got knocked over by a wave, then she became a little more timid (LOL). Zach was in and out of the water but he was much more enamoured with the sand today.........especially throwing it. After awhile Avery would lay in the sand on her tummy right at the edge of where the tide came in and the water would come around her ... (so she'd pretend she was swimming) and every single time the water touched her she would exclaim in her cutest little voice (with her little lisp) "I did it!!" Heeheee!!! They loved playing in the deep holes other people dug in the sand, and pouring water from their buckets (that THEY FILLED... HOORAY!!!) and floating their boats!!) Sammy and Kiersten both collected a bunch of shells to take home and Sammy even tried to bring home a couple of jelly fish that washed up on the beach (the clear ones) but we told her best to leave them on the beach or the might end up stinking after a few days!!!!
Love to all...
