Virginia Beach

This was our third summer taking some of our teens from church to Virginia to work with an inner city camp in the Norfolk area. When we are there, we are only about 30 minutes from Virginia Beach, so we always try to head over there several times during the trip.

We didn’t have great weather that week, so we only made it to the beach twice. The first time was July 4. The beach was crazy busy and with all of the stuff that we had to carry, I didn’t even attempt to bring my nice camera for fear of something happening to it. I did take a few pics and post them on Instagram. (I am @AmandaMedlin if you are on there.)

The only other time we went to the beach, was an evening following a late afternoon storm. It turned out to be a great time for pictures. The beach was pretty empty and the weather was perfect.

Here is Buddy in his classic Spiderman pose…


And Little Man…


I can’t get enough of that smile!


Phillip got a box of Krispie Kreme and it was all over after that.


Mouthful of donut with crumbs on the lips as evidence…


Our attempt at a family portrait on the beach with a 14 year old boy photographer. He actually did a great job!


The boys don’t love the beach yet. I am hoping they will like it more as they get older. Buddy enjoyed playing in the sand and doing a little “boogie boarding”, but was mostly timid of the water. Little Man pretty much hated everything. The sand, the water, the whole experience. He did enjoy throwing sand in my face however. Not cool. But I am still glad that we were able to go, because I LOVE the beach!

Always, 

Amanda
