Travel Tuesday: Virginia Beach, Virginia

Linking up again today with Helene for Travel Tuesday!! {Confession: I thought that Helene was pronounced the French way [ay-LEN] as opposed to the correct pronunciation [hell-EEN]. For the record, I also have trouble with formidable, but I digress.}

For this week, I am reminiscing a trip that my mom and I took in July 2011. While I have lived in the same house my entire life, my mom's father was in the Navy, so she and her family would move around quite a bit. They spent at least two, if not four years in/near Virginia Beach when she was a teenager, so this is where she "grew up," I guess. She wanted to bring me here since I had never been, and we were also able to see her oldest brother and his son, who live in the area.

{These pictures aren't really in order, and the first two were taken by my mom.}

We went to Mount Trashmore, which is a park made out of solid waste.

I really hate sand. And flip flops. I know, I'm weird. I think this picture is hilarious because it's such a typical me face.

So since I'm from a small town in the midwest, the boardwalk thing is kind of new to me. There were multiple locations of the same restaurant or store on the same street, pretty much walking distance from one another.

{I love this VW bus sign; there was also a wall painted for some restaurant with a VW Beetle on it!}

We ate dinner one night {our first night?} at Dough Boys. It was really good, and our waiter was cute (:

I thought these signs on the boardwalk were hilarious!!

Have I ever mentioned that I love Chick-fil-A? Since the nearest Chick-fil-A is like three hours from me, this was only the second time that I've ever eaten there. Their fries are my favorite!

I made my mom take me to Just Cupcakes for dessert (: They were out of the Frankly Scarlett (red velvet) so I got Mint Chocolate Chip.

We went to Wave Riding Vehicles with my uncle and cousin because my uncle wanted to check out the surfboards of course (: I found this little Frenchie that I sat with while they were looking at surfboards haha.

And a pretty picture of the beach! (:

Go check out Helene's linkup for more fun travels!
