Happy Birthday, Nonna!

We are so blessed to have a wonderful Nonna who dotes on the grandchildren and spoils us, too!  For her birthday, all she wanted was to have the whole family together.  So, she made it possible for everyone to drive/fly to Virginia Beach for a long weekend!  Yay!







The weather turned out to be gorgeous that whole weekend, and we had an oceanfront hotel.

The kids really had a good time feeding the seagulls off of our balcony.

April got a kick out of the lone crow that would swoop in every now and then to grab a bite.  Apparently, he is much more gentle than the seagulls!




We played in the sand during the warm hours of the day.  This was Caleb’s first beach trip and he didn’t quite know what to do with himself.mark and caleb


He wasn’t fond of the crashing waves,  and didn’t seem to like digging in the sand, either.








Finally, he found a tidal pool and enjoyed throwing seashells into it.caleb beach



















Joshua wasn’t feeling too well this trip, poor guy!  He enjoyed it the best he could 🙂

April had a blast chasing all of the now-fattened seagulls around.  Notice the “Lord of the Rings” she wrote in the sand!

Happy Birthday, Nonna!  Thanks for a wonderful weekend!
