Our first trip to the Rivah

No better way to sum up the weekend, except to say that it was perfect. So special and so much fun. Sometimes we get a little sad that we are so far from our families, we don't get to take summer beach vacations like you hear about from others and defiantly no weekend getaways. It's hard to be so far from home. But then, we have a weekend like this one. Where good friends open up their family homes to us and make us feel like we belong. We have morning walks with 'mom' and afternoons spent on the porch with 'gramma'. Big family dinners late into the evening, with lots of red wine and too many good stories to recount. It truly makes us feel at home.

Thank you Matt and Meg, for welcoming us into your Virginia family and making us feel so at home. We can't wait to come back to the Rivah' and make many, many more memories with you all!

A few pictures to sum up the trip!

First stop, NN Burger in Tappahannock. Had to see what the 'Best Burger in VA' was all about. It was pretty tasty indeed! 
We made it to the Rivah'

I could get used to waking up at 5am, if this was the view from my bed every morning.
Annalee and I watched the sunrise. 
Saturday was hot  - and water was needed. 
A little outing to the Crazy Crab in Reedville. 
 Annalee's first Ice cream at Chitterchats. Birthday Cake, of course
And some afternoon playtime at the heezy.
After the kids went down, the parents got to play!
Sunday a quick trip to the beach before we had to head back to reality. 

Inaugural Rivah' trip in the books. Cheers to many more!
