First Two Weeks In Va Beach

We are vacationing in Va Beach for the month!  Here are some pics from our first 2 weeks of activities!  We've been quite busy having fun.

Ginny had her 11th birthday.  Aunt Anna had a special cake made for her with an owl on it!

We went on a bike ride in the Great Dismal Swamp and saw a dung beetle rolling some poop!  That was really neat!

Saw "How to Train Your Dragon 2".

Spent a morning at the beach and was visited by a sand crab.  There were also a ton of dolphins out there and a bunch of fish that were swimming and jumping close to shore...probably trying to get away from the dolphins!

Gramps had a special moth visitor on his shirt!

We've played tons of games including Settlers, Carcassone, Blokus, Mexican Canasta, and Sevens.

We spent some time at parks playing badminton, frisbee, and hiking.

We visited Fort Monroe (totally awesome!)  We watched some fisherman on the pier.  One caught a skate and Jack and I almost cried when he cut off the tail...Skates are really cute!

Had a picnic at Ft Eustis and saw the mothball fleet.

Made an awesome robot for math club!  We did some work with spirographs, spirobots and this cool Spinbot from the Maker Shed!

 Found this crazy looking caterpillar on the back porch.  We've also had a couple BBQs with family and friends!

And this is what greeted me when I turned on the hall light to go upstairs to bed last night!  Gram's silly little kitties!  They are starting to get used to us and even let us pet them now and then!

Two more weeks to go.  We've got more swimming planned, a trip to a trampoline park (Cloud 9), more math club, more biking, and just tons of fun heading our way!

Hope your summer is turning out great too!
