Mom's Day Continued

The highlight of the day was seeing the Akins! We haven't seen them for about a year or so. The babies are so adorable and so big! It was our first time meeting Hayden and she is so precious and LOVED her dresses that uncle Jimmy got for her. We had a fab lunch with all of our Costco faves and really enjoyed the afternoon!

Mothers Day

Today was our 3rd annual Mother's Day Walk to Empower. We piled in the car and headed to Tempe Town lake early this morning! Mollie joined us too even though we left at 620am! Here's some pics~

Our Last Day in VA!

Monday was our last day in Virginia. Since Sam was back to school after an awesome weekend with us, Jimmy and I set out to do some sight seeing. We headed toward Williamsburg. First we wanted to visit the Berkeley Plantation, circa 1690. It was very beautiful, green historic, etc. Here's some pics. Then we set out to the Williamsburg Winery and afterward we had about 1.25 hours in Williamsburg. These 3 things that we did in a short amount of days should of taken us about 2.5 days if we wanted to do it right and see EVERYTHING possible. It was a lot of fun and I would love to go back. The wine tasting was AWESOME and we learned alot about Virginia Wineries- they are 4th in the nation for the # of wineries.

Virginia- Day 3

Sunday, we stopped by a Kite festival. It was small but still in a cool park surrounded by water. We then ventured to the Nauticus Naval museum that also has the USS Wisconsin, which is a berthed battleship that was built in the early 1940s and was even used during both Gulf wars. Here's some pics.

Virginia Day 2

We got up early and went fishing! We were excited of the possibility of catching some croaker, flounder or pretty much anything. Unfortunately, it was not a good fishing boat and really nobody on the boat caught anything. It was fun nonetheless!
After fishin, we had lunch at our new favorite spot- Panera. We hung out and then went to dinner and a movie. It was a great day hanging with our Sailor Sam

Visit to Virginia- Day one

We arrived early morning Friday (after midnight) eastern time to Virginia. We settled into the hotel and got to pick Sam up around 1pm. We went to Virginia Beach, had lunch and got to visit with Samuel. He is doing so good!

Friday night we went to Dinner at Buffalo Wild Wings, which was really good. We also went to Target to get Sam some clothes, etc.

PS- Blogger is not uploading pics well and I have THE BEST pics of the trip. What to do?
