Day 3 Of Our Virginia Trip: Virginia Beach

Today we were told that it was supposed to rain all day – thunderstorms! We planned a day at the Aquarium since… you know … we had to be indoors all day due to the weather. We drove about an hour to Virgina Beach and noticed that there wasn’t a grey cloud in the sky. So, here we are at Virginia Beach without our suits and sweating! LOL – you can’t beat it.

Needless to say we never made it to the aquarium.

Instead we rented one of those beach bikes. The kids got a kick out of it. My legs did not. I’m one of the laziest people you will ever meetΒ  – I was DYING after about 5 minutes. Poor Bill had to take over.

We stopped every few blocks to take family photos.

Then we came across this slide. Not thinking anything of it we threw the kids in and waited for them to slide down. It was a WATER SLIDE. They were soaked! We had no change of clothes and had to buy them new ones!

The day ended pretty early for us. We all had lunch and then drove back to avoid rush hour. We went to the hotel, watched some television and then spent an hour at the park. Dinner was all about the pig. We ended up visiting Pierce’s BBQ.

Bill was a happy camper!

Sorry these posts are so picture heavy – but trust me – I’m consolidating.
