Memorial Weekend

My parents and my niece, Aimee, came into town from Michigan for the weekend. They arrived Friday night after a very long drive. (Friday evening during rush hour on Memorial Weekend is not the best time to be driving into Virginia Beach...)

Here's Aimee and Kylee...

Saturday, we went up to the Eastern Shore. You have to take the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel to get there. This thing is 20 miles long, and has two tunnels. By the time you reach the other side, you're pretty sick of bridge.

We ate up there, and then went to Cape Charles, which is just a small town up there in the bay. We stuck our feet in the water and it was so warm! It was a beautiful day. Aimee even found a crab in the water...

After church on Sunday, we went to the beach. We typically going to Sandbridge Beach, which is south of the strip. It's quiet so it's where most of the locals go, but we thought Aimee would like to see the typical VB oceanfront. Boy, was it packed! We had a fun time though.

Aimee is growing up so fast...isn't she gorgeous?!
Kylee had a great time just hanging out in the shade in her car seat.
While we were there, she kept herself occupied with her feet... :)

Hunter doesn't like to swim much. The ocean intimidates him. Last year, by the time we got him to actually willingly go into the water, the season was over. Now his fear has returned this year and it's like starting at square one again. The boy LOVES playing in the sand though.
We ended the evening (and weekend) with S'mores...YUM!

We had a wonderful weekend!
