Virginia Beach and Summertime! Love the Moment!

Hello Neighbors!

With summertime fast approaching I am sure many of us are starting to think VACATION!  What kind of plans do you have in mind?  Camping, beach, major attractions?  Does Virginia Beach sound good to you?  Now I have a confession to make here, personally I like to visit places where there are not large crowds, you know, I am one of those people who like to visit during off season.  So of course when it comes to beaches, I am an early morning person.  I "Love the Moment" when I can just sit in the sand and watch the children scurry around collecting shells and other items of interest, while I am their collection drop off.    I also enjoy quiet walks along the shore with my husband, especially at sunset.  And when it comes to building sand castles, ours end up being more like villages.  With all eight of us working, we are soon covering quite a large area.  We have to add roads, and moats along with lakes and such.

There are a couple of things I would enjoy about Virginia Beach other than just the beaches.  I love to wander through old towns.  If you find them as interesting as I do, you might want to consider visiting  Bayside or Little Neck.  Bayside has the Adam Thoroughgood house built in 1680. Wow!  My daughters enjoy the older buildings as much as I do.  My sons of course prefer battlefields, boats and planes.  I especially love when the homes are still decorated in the appropriate time period. 

One other thing I would like to do in Virginia Beach is visit one of the lighthouses.  I have been to a couple of different ones along the coast, but have never had the time to stop at the ones in Virginia Beach.  Our bathroom is done in a lighthouse theme.  The old lighthouses are so interesting and full of history.  You can almost imagine yourself there warning boats of danger.

Are you a shopper?  Virginia Beach is a coastal shopping paradise.  You are bound to spend hours wandering the shops and enjoying the view.  From shopping centers to little boutiques (my personal favorite), Virginia Beach has them all!  

Virginia Beach is full of fun and activities for everyone.  I have a feeling it would take us more than one visit to see all that we would be interested in.  Have any of my neighbors ever vacationed at Virginia Beach?  I would love to know what you did and hear what you recommend to visit. Be sure to "like" the Virginia Beach Facebook page!

We went to VB last summer and are going back again this summer. We had lots of fun and loved the lighthouse although it was tough climbing to the top, for me anyway, kids no problem, lol. It's something I'll always remember though.

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.

 Hey neighbors, its with a heavy heart I let you all know that my mom (Lori) unexpectedly passed away the end of June.

Thank you all so much for your love and support over the years. ~Mercy
