Busch Gardens

Busch Gardens is only about an hour from here, so we made the trip when Carl had a few vacation days.  All the older children are tall enough to ride most everything (that they want to ride) either by themselves, with an adult, or with Will, so it was a great time, and a full day (their endurance has also increased with their height 😉).

Snack break.

Clara taking a rest while we waited with Jadon for the rest of the family to ride the log ride (Jadon and I rode previously and he decided he didn't need to go again).

My acrobat!

Daddy and Hannah with Jadon and Will behind them (Will's in the red shirt, Hannah's in the pink).

Hannah and Daddy sharing a swing toward the middle, and Will in the red shirt on the outside.

End of the day sky gondola ride back to the entrance.

Beach Day

A few weeks back, we went to the beach for the first time here in Virginia.  It was a perfect day for the beach and we had a lovely time, enjoying MUCH warmer ocean water than Maine, and great weather, before it got too hot.  Additionally, we saw many little sand crabs, and even DOLPHINS!  That was pretty cool for us, to see dolphins from the shore.  :)

The family on the way to the beach!

Clara cannot yet crawl (which makes beach going much easier, in my opinion), and was very content just sitting with me in the shade tent playing with whatever I gave her.  :)

Hannah coming to tell me a quick something about what she was doing, and then she was off again!

Jadon telling me a story about some recent, impressive swimming achievement.
