Hello everyone! I know it's been a while since we've updated the blog. Jeremy wrote a quick not to tell you about the pictures but that was all. While we were at the beach we really had a great time. I grew up going to the beach for a week every summer and it's been about 5 years since I've been. It was so, so great to go. We took a half-day off on Friday. The drive was ok. We were just so excited. We drove through this town in the middle of nowhere called "Crewe" and it was cool because every fire hydrant on their main street was painted in some sort of artistic fashion. When we got there we checked in to our hotel, which was really nice. Then we went out to eat at this place called "Tautog's". It was really, really good seafood, although I liked Jeremy's better than mine. Well, while we were there it started pouring. Like, seriously pouring. We got soaked just walking to our car. So we went back to the hotel room and discovered our roof was leaking all over the anniversary gift and card I got Jeremy, so he got to open that early. The rain started letting up so we decided to walk to 7-Eleven to get a couple of things that we needed. Turns out, the 7-Eleven wasn't where we thought it was, and while we were out it started pouring again, so we took a completely soaking walk in the rain. It was fun though. The next day we wanted to walk down the boardwalk. There was a huge beach sports tournament going on, which was kind of crazy. We ended up walking the entire boardwalk and back, which was six miles. It was fun!!! It was cold when we left but by the time we were halfway through it got hot, so when I took off my sweatshirt I got some really bad sunburn on my shoulders. Oh well. Later that day we went to the Cape Henry Lighthouse, which was really cool because Jeremy had never been in a lighthouse before. That was a lot of fun. Then we drove through the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel, which is this really awesome underwater tunnel that I used to love driving through when I was little. In the middle there was a pier for deep sea fishing and we watched people catch sharks and sting rays, which was really cool. We then came back and went out for a really nice dinner at the Cheesecake Factory, which was amazing! The next day we spent the day on the beach reading and walking and playing frisbee. Jeremy DID have sunscreen on, but I think it washed off and also just wasn't strong enough for how pale he was. But I didn't let him out without sunscreen, so don't worry. Not that it helped - he got second degree burns on his feet. They didn't start hurting until we got home that night though. We did take him to the doctor but she didn't really do anything for him. He's been off his feet since then, which has been kind of rough, but he is getting better now. Other than that, we really had a great anniversary!

My brother Dan is coming to spend the weekend with us today, and I am so excited! We're taking him to a baseball game and maybe to Putt Putt or something. It will be fun.

There's more I could say, but that's all I'm gonna write for now. Talk to you later!
