Our Trip to VA Part 4 - BIRTHDAY PARTIES!!!

One of the big reasons we spent last week in VA (July 22-July 27) was because so many cousins were celebrating their birthday's. Baylee and Savannah had a party planned for Saturday and Grant and Emma had one planned for Sunday. So we decided to make a whole week of fun out of these birthday's and visit some friends while we were at it. It was Harrison's last week before starting first grade so we tried to make the most of our time in VA!

Baylee and Savannah's birthday party was at Ocean Breeze. You will notice that there aren't any pictures of the kid's playing in the water. Last year I dropped my camera in the water and broke it so Anthony was pretty clear that I needed to just keep the camera away from the water this year! ;)

it was a fun party at ocean breeze again this year! the kids had so much fun and addison did so well! she enjoyed lounging in the cabana! maybe it's because i'm so tired these days but her little life sounds so enjoyable to me....lots of naps!!! ;)
On Sunday we enjoyed lunch at Moe's with the Schrodt Family and then headed to mom's for Grant's and Emma's birthday party. It was a lot of fun! Lots of yummy food and swimming.

We want to come home!!! boo hoo! So glad y'all had another great week in VA!
