More of VA Beach

Besides just hanging out at the beach, we ventured out to other attractions. 
 The girls enjoyed scootering along the boardwalk. There was plenty of open space!
 Savannah actually took this picture of Maddie!
 We walked the boardwalk several times. One evening we saw horses on the beach! National Geographic was doing a spread on horses at the beach- they were beautiful.
 What a good Daddy he is! We pretended to be pirates. Each of us had a job (given by Maddie). "Swab the deck!" "Hoist the sails!" And we sang "What Do You do with a Scurvy Pirate?" as well as "The Pirates Who Don't Do Anything". Super fun memories!
 Another day we went to the aquarium. The girls loved seeing everything from tropical fish to sharks and river otters!
 Jesse and Maddie petted sting rays.
 We watched a 3D movie on life under the sea. The girls kept taking off their glasses when it looked like the fish were swimming towards us!
 Here we are on the surrey bike! Let's just say renting one of these for an hour is more than enough time!
 One night we ended up at a restaurant with a lobster special...um, that was good! 
 On the drive home we stopped in Williamsburg for lunch. The girls remembered being there last year with the James family and Papa and Mimi. We enjoyed the Cheese Shop for lunch :)
And they were out the rest of the ride home! 
I'm sure thankful for this family trip! It had been 2 years since we got away just the four of us, so this was super special. God has blessed us beyond measure, and we're all thankful.
