Day 18-25 - Relaxing in Chesapeake, VA

We are enjoying our days in the Chesapeake area with my aunt and uncle's family.  The weather has been hot and humid, perfect for spending time on the beach!  The girls have been to the Chesapeake Bay beaches twice and hope to squeeze in one more trip before we head home on the 16th.

I celebrated my 37th birthday on the 9th with a relaxing day with Aunt Jerri at the house.  Mallory turned 7 on the 10th with a trip to the beach (shortened by a thunderstorm) then dinner and cake with home-made ice cream with the cousins.  It was a good day!
Birthday girl!

We also spent a day in Colonial Williamsburg.  It was fun to see everyone in costume and walk through the different trade shops.  Andy and Drew enjoyed the blacksmith shop and I enjoyed the hand-sewing at the Millery.  Pics to come later...

Sunday was filled with rest and good food!  We started the day at church, followed by a great brunch in historic Freemason Abbey in Norfolk.  After a long afternoon nap, Chet ordered pizza for dinner then we went for fresh Krispy Kreme donuts in Virginia Beach.  This was our first experience with hot-off-the-line donuts and they were delish!

Tonight we are headed to Manteo, NC for the Lost Colony play, a Tony award-winning production about the lost Roanoke colonies.  We also plan to visit the First Flight museum at Kitty Hawk and find a beach.
