Alright Tom, here's a vacation report.
Friday: drove to the beach. Got there around 3:30. Unpacked and hit the beach for a few hours.
Saturday: Bottle and Cork 10-miler and FE with Tom (one of the highlights of the trip). Back to Bethany around 10am and hit the beach for the rest of the day.
Sunday: Church in the morning. Beach for the rest of the day. Took kids to 5 Guys Burgers for dinner.
Monday: weather cooled down some. Went to the library in the morning. Older kids did school work. Went to the beach in the afternoon or awhile. Ran.
Tuesday: Beach and Playground. My wife who is very friendly met 25 year-old redheaded twin girls (no they weren't birthday presents for me
), one who had 3 small children. So we hung around them for the day and we all went out for Grotto's pizza for dinner. Turns out the twins knew a lot of the same people we did. They were also heading back to Northern Virginia on Wednesday and we needed our 2 oldest taken back on Wednesday (one had college classes and one had a soccer game on Thursday). So we sent them back with them, sure beat me having to drive them back. Alex my oldest kept complaining that we didn't really know these people and what if they were axe murders. Turns out they weren't and everything was fine. Ran.
Wednesday: sent Josh and Alex home with the "Lizzie Borden" twins. Spent some time on the beach. Went to dinner that night at a friend's house. She moved to Bethany about 10 years ago. Had a nice home cooked meal. Biked.
Thursday: rained. Hung out at the house. Went out for ice cream in the evening when the rain let up. Ran.
Friday: packed-up and headed home.
