A little update

I couldn't sleep Friday night, so I woke up at 4 AM. I was trying to decide what to do with the day, and then I decided to take the fam to Norfolk. Tim has been wanting to go there for a while, so I decided that there was no better time than the present...plus our ninth anniversary is Tuesday so it was a good excuse.

We had a great time touring the base and seeing the ships. We also went downtown to the Navy museum and toured the USS Wisconsin.



J got to swim at the hotel, so he was happy. He also got to sleep on a "magic bed" (sofa bed) so he was pretty happy!




We went to church at TRBC via internet. Then we went to VA beach where the boys had a great time playing in the waves until J consumed too much salt water.



We then went to Fort Story and saw the Cape Henry Lighthouses. We climbed up to the top of Old Cape Henry Light. Let's just say that after climbing the stairs to the Eiffel Tower, this was a piece of cake!






It was nice to get away together...so often it seems our only "vacations" are to visit family or with family, so it was nice to be just us. Just wish we could have stayed longer!
