Camping at VA Beach...

A couple weekends ago we headed down to Virginia Beach so we could attend the York v. CNU lacrosse match. This game had been on our calendars for quite some time as it was nephew Nick (a York Spartan) playing against nephew Drew (a CNU Captain) - brother v. brother - pretty cool. 

We decided to check out the First Landing State Park which sits right on the Chesapeake Bay and is an awesome campground - apparently it's the busiest of all of Virginia's State Parks - and I can understand why. We had an amazing campsite that was not only ginormous but also gave us incredible views of the bay and the famous Bay Bridge Tunnel. We enjoyed a beautiful sunset and learned that we could get even better views of it by climbing one of the trees on our site - I haven't climbed a tree in quite sometime - but the views were so worth it! In the morning we took a nice long walk with the dogs and enjoyed even more beautiful views. 

The game was a lot of fun. We had a tailgate beforehand with Auntie Amy, Uncle John & Sam - they were all appropriately dressed in a variety of York & CNU gear. We made sure to dress Adam and Harper in the colors of both teams as well. The game was fun and we got to see both Drew & Nick get some good time in on the field - it was kind of fun getting to cheer regardless of what happened - if York scored - YAY, go Nick - if CNU scored, YAY go Drew! In the end, York came out on top and just this past weekend they beat undefeated Salisbury to win their conference championship and they are now off to play in the National Championship tournament - wow, go Spartans! 

After the game we headed back to our campsite and Amy, John & Sam joined us as well. Our site had plenty of space for them to set up some tents so we enjoyed a fun evening around the campfire enjoying fresh steamed shrimp, chicken salads, and a lot of good conversation. 

I can definitely see us going back to that campground - hopefully for a longer visit next time!
