Labor Day Not That Far Away

Though we had just been away at the beach, we figured one last hurrah before school started would be a nice time for just the four of us. We enjoyed being residents of DC for the long weekend, and planned our days around neighborhood walks and food!

Summer Vacay Round Up

For our pandemic summer break, there was the beach, the pool and everything in between! Here are the rest of the highlights!

Summer Beach Party

While the pool was the place to be on our trip to North Carolina, the beach had its fans as well. The waves made for good splashing and riding around, though destroyed every sandcastle we built. As a bonus, we went one evening to look for crabs on the beach and weren’t disappointed.

Summer Pool Party

The major perk of our vacation home in North Carolina was the private pool – which got daily use. As a bonus, there was a sandbox and a swing set for hours of backyard fun.

Summer Vacay 2020

Despite the pandemic, we managed to have an almost-normal summer vacation. We ventured further than a cabin and headed to the beach in Duck, North Carolina – home of the famous Duck Donuts. Our bubble family joined us for some maximum fun, and we made the most of the pool, beach and the occasional socially…

Lots of Playground Time

When there’s nowhere to go, we look to our neighborhood, where there are several great playgrounds. They’ve been our savior during the latter part of this pandemic, despite the summer heat!

New Skills

We’re trudging along during the summer of COVID, but that doesn’t mean we’re giving up on summer fun. We’ve become painters, bike riders, hopscotch players and more!

Among the Trees

While away for a long weekend in Luray, we did something new – ventured out. We chose a hiking spot first thing in the morning to avoid any crowds, and due to some gloomy weather, we had the entire trail loop to ourselves! Here are a few photos…

Back in the Woods

We had such an amazing time our first weekend away since the pandemic hit, that we booked another stay at a different cabin a month later. While it was a new locale, Luray, we of course took advantage of the “usuals” – s’mores, hot tub and just getting away from it all!
