So I'm attempting to filter here, but there were so many precious moments, so many things I want to remember, so many smiles and laughs and sand-in-the-buttcrack kind of fun that was had. My family's first beach vacation is chock full of memories that I absolutely have to capture here. So sit back and scroll until your heart's content.
5:00 am on the way to Virginia Beach. Our plan of leaving at 4:00 am so the kids would sleep for 3 or 4 hours on the way backfired.
Sam's first step onto beach sand.
Lena's first step onto beach sand.
My favorite southern grocery store - Harris Teeter. There was one just a minute from our hotel, so I made Rich take me there to stock up, twice. Love that place.
Our first morning began very early - 5:30 am. At least we caught a beautiful sunrise.
Under the dock hunting for seashells.
Precious napping baby girl. "She's an angel straight from heaven!"
Lena was a bit unsure of the turtles at the aquarium.
We're a pretty dorky family...
Watch out Sammy, there's a shark behind you!
On our way home, exhausted from a great vacation!
