Virginia Beach

The girls and I made the 3.5 hour trek out to Virginia Beach. It was fun to see the Atlantic since we are all Pacific Girls! :) The weather was hot, humid, sticky, icky. There was a storm brewing so there were clouds (which we were happy for, since they kept the sun from beating down on us). We looked through some of the little touristy shops at all the tshirts and keychains. Oh, and the sunglasses. When we were done looking, we went down to the beach to lay on the sand and play in the water. It was pretty crowded, but we found a spot and sat for a while.

Then, it happened. A rain drop. Then another, and another. So, we packed up and headed to the car. By the time we got on the road, the clouds had opened up and drenched the town (luckily, I had put fresh Rain-X on the windshield before we left home!). We drove around to look at what we had missed on our walk, then decided to head home. The girls slept most of the time, and we went through a big downpour and lightning and thunder storm. We finished our day with Sonic in Fredericksburg. It was a long day, but we had a good time. Here are the highlights.

This one is just for Monica!

You know what is really scary is when you see ginormous, wrinkly old ladies wearing those T-shirts!

OMG... who told them I was coming!!! Oh that is too funny! Notice I didn't didn't say "too effin' funny". I'm following Virginia Beach's @#!%! code.
