Jenn and Randy's visit

We had such a blast with Randy and Jennifer visiting this weekend. It was great to show them our home and where we attend church. Jenn and I went to Portsmouth for the Flea Market on Saturday morning and for some coffee and tea afterwards- I love those chats and just getting to catch up with each other!
We spent the afternoon at the beach. It was hot, but the waves weren't that great for boogey boarding. We hoped for better ones as the afternoon wore on so we stayed until close to 6:00pm. For dinner we had been going back and forth with what to do. John and I were trying to think of a place exclusive to Virginia Beach that we could take them. We didn't find a place exclusive to Va Beach but we did give them Beach experience by going to Ruby Tuesday's for dinner in our swimsuits straight from the beach- sand and all!!! Everyone slept well on Saturday night after such a busy day!
On Sunday we went to church and treated Randy and Jenn to our favorite Mexican spot. That afternoon Randy and John decided to return to the beach at Sandbridge to see if the waves were any better while Jenn and I took naps. I woke up about 3:40ish to thunder. I found Jenn in the living room reading the tornado warnings on TV- they advised us to get in the bathroom and cover up with blankets and pillows. Of course we are both wondering--- Where are our husbands?? We took our tea and the laptop and hung out in the bathroom just to be safe- oddly enough this is what Randy and John came home too- hahahaha!!! Thankfully, the tornado didn't end up coming near us like we thought.
We had a wonderful time with them, but we sure missed our nieces and nephew. We hope they can come visit sometime so we spoil them and take them to the beach. Round 2 of Family comes this weekend and then it's time to head home!

You are going to need a vacation to just catch up on some sleep as you are having so much company in Aug. I am glad you had a great time with you sister and brother in law. That is hilarious about going in the bathroom with your computers. I did not even realize there was a tornado warning. Maybe it was not where we live though. Karen and I both laughed as we pictured you both in the bathroom!!

Glad you had a nice time with your family. It's fun to take them to the beach since they probably don't live near one.

I too got a chuckle picture you guys in the bathroom -- what a great memory.

Glad you had such a great time with Jenn and Randy.

Hey girl, looks like your August was great but how's your Sepetember been? Haven't had a chance to talk with you in a while, we should do coffee sometime.

PS - I can't believe you were in the bathroom!! :)
