Jason's Birthday!

Saturday was Jason's birthday. We decided to go to the beach; it's been awhile since we've been there. We thought it would be a pretty warm day. When we left the house it was 70 degrees but by the time we got to the beach it was 58 degrees! A little chilly, especially with the wind! But we made the most of it. We ended up buying VA BEACH sweaters to keep us warm. That's really the only way we could stand to be outside. Amazingly there were people in the water! I can understand the people surfing in dry suits but the people in swim suits are a little crazy!

We left the beach and drove around for a little while looking for something to do. We drove through the community of Pungo and saw people picking strawberries. So, we decided to pick some fresh strawberries! We actually thought the strawberry festival was going on but found out that it's not until May 24th/25th. It was a lot of fun to pick strawberries and they are delicious!!!

Later, we went to the Crab Shack Seafood Restaurant for dinner.

And now, some pictures of the dogs. These were taken before we went to the mountains and I've been slack on posting :-)

Hutch loves looking out the window! This is one of his favorite spots.

Murphy thinks Charlie makes a great pillow! :-)

I'm a little behind on my posts as you can tell since I'm just now posting about Jason's Birthday (May 10th). I'm trying to make up for it now with lots of blogging. Make sure you check out the previous posts like "Fishing!" I don't want you to miss those great pictures!
