Jackson_2002_09_beach_visor_web.jpg (58650 bytes)We went to Virginia Beach in September and Jackson had an extra special time because Grandma Sue went with us.  The Oceana Air Show was taking place a few blocks away, so we were treated to seeing the Blue Angels, Canadian Snowbirds, etc... fly over head while we were on the beach.  Virginia Beach has done a great job of turning itself into a nice family vacation spot.  It is an amazing difference from when I went there as a kid.  The beaches are now nice and wide, big improvement.  It gave Jackson lots of room to run.  Lots of fun pics from this month.  Every time we go to the beach I think Jackson is at the perfect age to enjoy it.

Jackson_2002_09_beach_crossing_boardwalk_web.jpg (77674 bytes)One of Virginia Beach's great features of course is the boardwalk.   Jackson called it "crossing the street".  We rented a 4 seater bike and took Grandma Sue for a ride along the bike trail one night.  Maybe next year Jackson will be old enough for the roller blades.
