Alex has been asking to go to the beach since the start of summer, so we decided to go and spend a night at Virginia Beach. We stayed at the Westin Hotel, which is actually the tallest building in Virginia (very cool) and we stayed on the highest floor they would allow us (the top floors are private residences). The girls enjoyed looking out the windows at the tiny people and cars. I would have prefered a lower floor :)
We took along themed several books. I'll only highlight the one each girl seemed to prefer.
Jordan: How Will We Get to the Beach?- A classic guessing book perfect for toddlers. Alex: Usborne- One The Beach- an information yet still kinda fun with the flaps beach books. Alex took some notes on it in her nature journal and actively looked for many of the things while at the beach (shells, crabs, etc.)
Here's a short glimpse into our quick day visit. Alex was very proud of her first attempt at board surfing.
