Ten reasons why you would want to visit Virgina Beach

I am in need of a vacation!  Are you???

How about a fantastic trip to Virginia Beach!!!  Many of you know I live in Wisconsin so I would prefer to leave the state and see the amazing ocean and I think Virginia Beach would be a great place for me and my wonderful family.  

Here are my top 10 reasons why I want to go to Virginia beach and why you should too:
1. Stress-Everyone needs to get out of the daily grind and have time to re-energize away from home. What a great way to relax then to go fishing on a pier, soak your toes in some sand, and eat some yummy food!  :)   

2.  Build a sandcastle!  My daughter loves the sand and I know we could build one magnificent castle. 

3. The Virginia Aquarium would be a perfect day outing with our family of four.  I love learning about  all the animals of the sea and my daughter has shown a big interest in fish and turtles, but what is more exciting is the whale watching!  HOW COOL!  :) 

4. I know I can convince my hubby to go to Virginia beach when I say "SURFING LESSONS."  I think I will stay on shore with camera in hand and get some great photos of him learning the waves.  

5. A kayak adventure with dolphins!  I AM SOLD!  I have always loved dolphins so this would be an awesome adventure in my book.  

6. A visit to the National Aviation Monument, Francis Land House, or take one of the History Tours.  I think this would be a neat way to teach my daughter about our history.   Virginia Beach has a lot of history and I want to teach my kids about our history.  

7. One of the first dates that my husband and I had was hiking.  I think taking a hike up one of the trails at First Landing State Park or climbing up Old Cape Henry Lighthouse would bring back some memories of old past memories.  

8. GO PARA-SAILING!  That would be a brand new adventure that we have never done.  I am all for trying new adventures.  I think this would be a great hubby n wife date while on vacation!

9. Visit Mount Trashmore Park for the kids to have some fun.  It is a must to visit a playground when you have young kids.  

10.  No vacation is a vacation until you hit up a water-park!  I think our family would have a great time visiting Ocean Breeze Water-park, going down water-slides and swimming is a vacation must.

I could probably find 10 more reasons why I want to visit Virginia Beach but I think I will stop writing my list and start saving money in our vacation fund!  :) I love when I can find a vacation spot that has so many things to offer...especially for a family.  :)

My Memory Suite Review and GIVEAWAY!

MY MEMORIES SUITE Review and giveaway!  (#1 rated scrapbook software)  The above is one of the scrap pages I have created.  Super easy and super fast.  I only took a couple minutes to create a 8 page photo book.  I am still going to do some more with adding more embellishments!  The below is one I created all from scratch and it only took me about 5 minutes!  :)  SO EASY!   Here is a great video explaining more about the product.  There are also tutorials available on youtube.com I am not sure if you are like me but I have spent hours online trying to upload photos to the web to place them into something I was trying to create.  THE BIGGEST BONUS to My Memory Suite is the fact that it is downloaded to your computer so you do not have to wait forever for a picture to upload! It made my experience much quicker then other programs I have used online.  The scrapbook software was very easy to download on my computer and did not take long to learn how to create.  :) One feature t

Liquid Chalk spray! Chalk Idea #7

Last week we tried out the fizzing sidewalk chalk- click here to read that review. This week it is liquid chalk spray.  They are a bit similar but yet different.  Here is how to make it: Supplies: 1 tsp. washable tempura paint 1 cup of hot water 1/2 cup of cornstarch squirt of dishwashing liquid 1 squirt bottle- I found them at the dollar store 1.  Add cornstarch to one cup of hot water whisking to mix so that there are no clumps. 2.  Add one teaspoon of washable tempura paint and a quirt of dishwashing liquid.  Mix well. 3.  Pour it into your squirt bottles and shake well. 4.  Go have fun!!!   This kept my daughters attention much longer the the fizzy chalk last week.  I also think this was easier to work with and just more fun in general.  I love seeing the chalk wet but then to see it dry.  I think it dried darker so it was fun to see the changes.  :)  Ready, Set, Go!  Have some fun!
