Abby will turn 5. I can't believe it. This has been, without a doubt, the fastest 5 years of my life.
How could she go from this....
Your daddy and I love you so much. Every day we are thankful that God gave us you. We are very proud of you. You are a great big sister and a good friend. You care about others and you love Jesus. We love to hear you sing "Awesome God" and "Shine Jesus Shine". We know you will be a wonderful kindergartner! We just couldn't ask for a better daughter! Happy Birthday!
We stayed at the Marriott Residence Inn on the Virginia Beach Oceanfront. It is on 33rd street, 2 blocks down from the big new Hilton/Neptune statue. It was a nice place. We had a suite with a kitchen/living area and separate bedroom. Having a kitchen was wonderful, we could eat lunch in our room instead of going out. There was a nice (included) breakfast with waffles, eggs, biscuits, sausage, muffins, french toast, yogurt, cereals, etc. Abby particularly enjoyed the fruit loops (which I told her to savor while she could, we would not be eating those at home!).
The hotel from the beach.
The "sleeping room" as Abby called it. There was a floor to ceiling window looking out on the beach!
