Virginia Beach [Permalink]

Tue Mar 25 22:10:38 EDT 2008

We just arrived back from a long weekend in Virginia Beach where we visited my Aunt Rita, Uncle Ed and cousins SarahJane and Krista.

This was the kids farthest trip south and longest car ride. I'm happy to report that the car ride was a big success, it took almost 8 hours to get there, with a few stops, including breakfast. The best part of the drive was crossing the Chesapeake Bay Bridge/Tunnel. We were literally on or under the water for over 15 minutes, it was very cool, too bad we weren't crossing the Bay during sunrise.

Of course, the "highlight" of the trip happened about an hour after we arrived late Friday morning. Before we finished unpacking, we had to take a break to find the local 24 hour emergency care station for Paige. The children learned the hard way what happens if you play with the doors... Paige experienced her first x-rays, but thankfully nothing is broken, her left thumb is just really ugly.

The rest of the trip was less eventful, we went to the local aquarium, went for a bike ride around the campground and celebrated Easter with the family! The easter bunny visited the campground and brought muffins and doughnuts for breakfast. Paige and Ben also enjoyed an Easter egg hunt at my aunts house, which was a highlight!

We are looking forward to more camping trips, especially now that they kids have convinced us they can handle longer car rides. I think we'll wait a little for some warmer weather though. Even down south, 30sih overnight is a bit cold for a pop-up camper!
