Last weekend we went to Virginia Beach and camped at First Landing State Park. It was a blast! We weren't sure how Amelia would react to the ocean but our curiousity definetely vanished the second her monkey toes hit the sand. She took off running. She was pointing at rocks, chasing crabs and sea gulls (also trying to convince the sea gulls that sand was good to eat) and splashing in the water. She was, as my Dad fondly refers to her, a blonde tornado. Mia was so enthusiastic; Nick had to jump in the water a few times so she didn't float off to sea. We even saw Dolphins!
This was our first camping trip without our parents culinary camping skills and we fared pretty well. We know not what to do next time and our cobbler turned out lip smacking good.
The portable DVD player also came in handy when we were trying to, well let's get real here. A 16 month bundle of curiousity can be too much help sometimes.
