It's no secret that we don't like Virginia Beach, but we are making the best of it. Everyone is entitled to their opinions and can have a gripe or two in life. Virginia Beach is our gripe. We don't like it here. We are making the best of it, and counting down the days until we can get orders back to California.
There's not much to do here, nor is there anywhere worth driving to. We do want to make it up to DC and NYC, but those aren't quick day trips. Even though Travis won't be deploying, it doesn't mean that we can get away whenever we want, and a lot of people don't understand that. His job is demanding and so are the hours, but we are just happy to have him home.
We've been to the beach a couple of times. This time was to see the Blue Angels.
parking is $20/day all summer, and it's not worth it
We've played outside
when it's not raining
we've been on the hunt for good restaurants
no luck so far, seriously
we've been to the aquarium
which is lame
we got out the water toys
our yards are mostly dirt, this turned out to be a mess
we've made improvements around the house
never sign a rental agreement before seeing the house
we went to the beach with our friends
and paid another $20 for parking
we babysat Aiden
he scraped his chin on our watch. ahhh
we went to the Melting Pot for Father's Day
Brady was horrible for the first time ever.
This photo was the happy before the storm :)
I posted earlier about how we should've moved to Croatia and why I think so. I have good points in there.
I don't hate Virginia Beach, but I hate everything we were misled about. A few people really talked this place up, even though I doubted it the whole time from the research I had done. All of our family and friends in Michigan said we should move here because they would visit all the time since they wouldn't have to buy plane tickets. Our guest bed is getting dusty.
