Holly planed a trip across the bridge tunnel to the Eastern Shore
We stopped to eat lunch on the bridge
We got to eat out in the middle of the ocean!
Out on the fishing pier
At the hotel we were too early to check in so we waited... in the pool!
This was the main reason for the trip
Anya and Sasha have been desperate for pool-time since my Birthday
Sasha swims, above and below.
Sasha and Daddy are Pool Pals!
Butterflies outside the restaurant we went to for dinner
The decorated the landscaping with clam shells
Sasha likes all the shells
Here's a playground we stopped at on the way back to the hotel
Like Sasha before her, Anya loves swings
Back at the hotel we got there just in time to watch Star Wars!
Sasha was even wearing the right Jammies!
We usually make her sleep on the floor, but Anya cried so we let her sit on the bed (at least to watch the movie)
The next day we stopped in Cape Charles
Ran down to and played on the beach for a few minutes
Looked for shells
Walked out on this sandbridge
Sasha found a still articulated clam shell!
Then we left
And ended the day at the Japanese Grill. Hurray! Great Fathers Day!
The next weekend was Alan's favorite Festival of the Year
The Norfolk Bayou Boogaloo!
I bring the kids with me, but really I could just sit there for hours eating
I LOVE the food at this festival
Here's Wacky Chad!
This was Sasha & Anya's favorite performer
He was a pogo, comedy, juggling, unicycler
Here's Chad chatting up Sasha & Anya
They bought a Wacky Chad magnet that's on the fridge now and they wrote with magnet letters "We Love Chad"
Back for more food before the next show
Roasted Grilled corn and Beignets!
This was a contortionist named Alakazam
Here you see him squeezing his body through a squash racket. That was crazy!
Here he's atop a pole, juggling knives
Next, I stupidly suggested we go watch the
Zydeco band that was playing.
When we got back to the performance area, they had just started a free Crab eating contest that I would have probably won. :(
On the way home we stopped at the Waterside Fountain
The kids were more excited to play in this fountain than going to the festival
They were pretty patient while Daddy pigged out at the festival so they got to play for a while
And get totally soaked
Even Anya eventually got drenched
The next day we went the the Contemporary
Art Center of Virginia. We had free passes from seeing Amococo earlier in
We saw the Ultra-Realistic Sculpture by Marc Sijan. That was pretty freaky.
Then we went to the beach
The kids love the beach and they are getting closer and closer to the water!
Maybe by the time they're in their late teens we can go boogie boarding?
Anya had this cute Little Rascals ring of sand around her eye by the end of the day.
