4th of July weekend in Norfolk

We took a road trip up to Norfolk, VA to visit Dan and Natalie at their new home! It was the first time since seeing them at the wedding. We hadn't taken Toby on a trip in a while, and he was SO excited to come along.
 Natalie made red, white, and blue fruit pizza!
 Natalie and Dan got a puppy a few weeks ago and named her Finley. She looks so much like Toby did as a pup. Here they are bonding on a walk together...
 We went to the beach on Friday afternoon with the dogs.
 Finley loves to dig in the sand.
 Look at that face!

 Sisters :)
 Toby finally warmed up to the water! He was such a good swimmer.
 Nat made the best coconut waffles for breakfast on Saturday morning.
 And then we drove to pick up the boat for the day.
 We spent the afternoon on the water in Virginia Beach. So fun!!

 Finley is so adorable in her puppy life jacket.
We put a human one on Toby, but it just made him hot.
This is my favorite picture of Toby. Pure joy. He loved being on the boat! 

We found an island beachy area where we could let the dogs off leash to swim and play.

That night, Dad joined us for dinner! He was staying in Hampton, VA for a few weeks for business. It was so fun to see him!
We left on Sunday morning... Thanks Dan and Natalie for a wonderful weekend! Can't wait for another visit!
