The weekend after Christmas we drove 7 hours to spent a few days in Virginia Beach because Robert and Kasi were visiting... and that is a lot closer than London!

We had a great time! The kids looooved the hotel pool and we had a pretty view of the beach from our room. It was kind of a ghost town because it was cold and apparently people don't really vacation there in the winter, haha.
We bought a kite and had fun walking along the beach, except for Mae screamed the whole time because she was cold (she is going to really struggle in Utah next week). We also went to the aquarium which Calvin LOVED, went miniature golfing, spent a lot of time with Kasi and Robert, drove through the Christmas light show along the beach, and swam in the hotel pool a million times.

We got home just in time for New Year's Eve. The kids slept most of the way home, so they stayed up super late with us (Calvin made it until midnight!). We played pie face and made New Year's resolutions. Oh, and did about one million toasts of course.

2016 was a wild one. Our family of 4 lived in four states (if you count the 2 months we were in Utah + Alabama). Sooo much uncertainty in our future for what 2017 will hold. I am just trying (and failing) to not stress out too much and enjoy the ride :)
