Virginia Vacation

This past week was awesome! We flew out to Virginia to visit Drake's family and we packed a lot into our week. We flew out Monday evening, Easton did awesome on the flights and thought taking off was hilarious. 
After getting to bed about 11:30, of course this guy was up bright and early and ready to start his vacation :) 
Our first day we went to the park, got groceries for the week and Easton spent a lot of time outside in the pool naked popping bubbles. 
We enjoyed time at the house and watched the world cup. Easton was in love with Tucker all week! He would rub his arm to ask where Tucker was if he wasn't in Easton's sight. 
Day 2: We headed to Virginia Beach to hang out with more family. Drake's nan and grandad were so excited to see Easton again.
We walked over to the beach and Easton loved the waves and running up and down the shore.
Once we were done there, we walked back over and got in the pool and got ice cream :) We had dinner with everyone before heading out for the evening. 
I am so thankful the weather was great all week! The last couple days even felt like awesome fall weather. Our third day we decided to go to water country, kind of taking a chance and hoping that it had stuff that Easton would enjoy, in the past he has been very shy when it comes to any sort of rides or anything...well not this day! Easton was so brave. We started at the small stuff, but he kept walking over and pointing to the big kid slides so we let him go and he loved it! We rode tube rides and did big slides all day! I got all videos of that stuff. It was so much fun to watch him have an awesome day! 
The next day of our vacation was July 4th, so Drake's mom had a party for everyone. She had the cutest decorations and details for everything. 
Drake's aunt Trish and her family came over and it was the first time they met Easton. He was not shy at all with all of the new places and people all week. 

Fun evening with everyone! 
After the group left we hung outside a little longer and Easton enjoyed his dessert on the porch with Babcia :)
Our next day...(have I mentioned that this all went down without a nap all week?! He wasn't having any part of that. Too much to do as usual) We went back to the park again 
and then headed to Jamestown for the afternoon. 
Easton liked the heavy hat and walking on the boats 
Finally, that evening Easton's cousins came over to play
He loved them! 
 Babcia got everything ready and had a color fight waiting for them :) 







We had such an awesome week! Spoiled with hot breakfasts and yummy dinners, gifts for Easton and so much love for him. I loved watching him experience new things all week and we made some awesome memories as a family. Yesterday we traveled home all morning and Easton did awesome again :) 
 Then we unloaded the car, went to get groceries and are slowly getting back to reality. Although my reality is still summer break :) It is back to responsibilities at home. Lots to do this week to get Easton's registration finished for school, pay bills, get caught up on editing photo shoots and get some things done for work. Now that we are back that means I am officially half way done with my summer break! Crazy!

  1. I love Easton's cheesy grin in some of those last pictures and that he had such a great time on vacation doing new things! Hopefully when you got home, he went back to napping. :-) I can't believe your summer break is half over already.
