Top Ten Reasons Why I Would Want To Go To Virginia Beach

Here we are back At The Fence and I have in interesting topic to discuss today. You all know how much I like Social Moms and their writing posts. Well, today they have teamed up with the Virginia Beach Convention and Visitors Bureau to bring you ten reasons why Virginia Beach is such a great place. I am really happy about doing this post and I suggest you read through to see why I would want to go there. And maybe you can leave a comment at the end with a suggestion you might have.

My very first, top reason would be the lighthouses. I love lighthouses! And Virginia Beach has several to choose from, namely the Old Cape Henry Lighthouse. I would love to visit Virginia Beach to see this old lighthouse.

2.Nightly Walks.
At nighttime the beach can be such an interesting place. It is dark and almost eerie so it makes it more exciting. Great place to go and walk the beach.

3.Collecting Shells in the Morning.
We normally set our alarms early and drive down to the beach for a walk collecting shells. It is really fun to get up early and see the sun rise. Taking a nice brisk walk while looking for shells is a wonderful way to start your day early and on the go.

4.Wild Ponies.
Now, this is not actually at Virginia Beach. But my children love the wild ponies of Chincoteague Island. It is not that far from Virginia Beach so we could travel back and forth in a day easily. Everyone loves the old story of Misty and the girls think this would be most exciting.

Yep, downtown would have some lovely shops in which we could spend a while browsing and looking. Maybe even purchase something:) But I love walking through little, old shops that have many interesting items to buy.

6.Historic Churches.
With our family being in the ministry, we love visiting historic Churches. Especially ones that we have read about or know from a specific preacher in the past. An interesting one I found online was the Salem United Methodist Church. Looks like a grand old landmark!

We like to go to interesting museums and centers. Seems like Virginia Beach has quite a unique Aquarium that has lots to see and do. They also have an old Coast Guard Station. That sounds interesting!!

8.Military Aviation Museum.
Wowsa! I have a son who would LOVE this museum! He is all into planes and flying plus the military? This would make a great place for a trip. And I know I mentioned museums just above, but this one deserves it's own place:)

My one daughter loves wild animals and birds. I can't think of a better place for her to have a good time than at the Virginia Beach Zoo. They seem to have quite an array of wild animals and lots of exciting activities for children.

10.Hanging Out.
I love spending some time just hanging out together and talking. Sometimes getting away from the familiar is a nice way to get closer together and discuss things. Take walks and collect shells, fly a kite, or just relax. What a great time!

Again, let me know in a comment if you have another reason I would want to go to Virginia Beach. I don't do much in the water but love the beach area:)

Baby First TV 'I Can Sign" First Words

Hey Neighbors! Here is a really neat gift idea for someone with a young child.  Here we have I Can Sign (First Words) from Baby First  TV.  Now, I am just going to share right here that we have friends who have taught two of their children to sign at a very young age.  And it works!  Their children could sign before they could talk. The Dvd will teach your child many useful words that will be used in day to day life.  Words like: eat, water, milk, cookie, ear, feet hands, kiss, sleep, book, mother, father, and many other words.  Each word is taught in a short video clip where they will see pictures of the word/item and people signing.  There is also a little character at the bottom corner of the video signing along.  The Dvd can be done on English or Spanish.  Also included on the Dvd are printable coloring pages that you can print off by inserting the Dvd into your computer.  Inside the cover of the Dvd case is a little booklet that covers some of the words you and your child

What To Do About Those Fuzzy Uninvited Guests In The Home

When we talk about pests in the home, the most common that we tend to deal with are the creepy-crawlies that find their way in. Ants, termites, and spiders, for instance. Occasionally though, you have a real chance of getting a much bigger, fuzzier unwanted guest in the home. What do you do about the fact your home is at risk of becoming a wildlife sanctuary for some truly unhealthy and even dangerous beasts? Picture by Alexas_Fotos Know the signs It doesn’t matter if you’re in a suburban home, a country cottage, or a fourth-floor apartment. Some animals can find their way just about anywhere. It’s worth knowing the signs of pest infestation so you can confirm it and act on it immediately. Spotting droppings, keeping an ear out for scratching, and looking for signs of nesting like shredded paper, scrunched leaves, and grass clippings around the home without explanation can help you start fighting back.
