Get Clued In goes to Virginia!

The girls and I visited my parents in Virginia Beach.  What a relaxing trip!  It was nice to not have to deal with worrying about what to feed the kids because my mom is an amazing cook and grandma.  The park is nearby and we made a few trips there along with the beach- yes, we got lucky in October and got to visit the beach earlier in the week.  We had a few cultural events because October generally marks Navratri– a Hindu celebration in honor of the Goddess Durga.  It involves prayers, dance, lights, singing, and getting dressed up and ends on the 10th day which commemorates the Ramayan and the defeat of Ravana (evil) by Lord Ram (good).  Of course, there is always food involved – if it’s an Indian celebration, there’s always food and sweets involved.  It is always fun to celebrate such events with family and friends. 

Here are just a couple pics of our trip to the beach.  I have to say the weather was amazing and we got to enjoy the beach twice during our trip! The 10-day trip ended with a visit from my friends in Richmond, my brother from D.C. and my husband who came out to hang out with us and make the long trek back to Colorado. 
Next post: Back home blues 🙂  Kidding.  But it was really great to have this time for R&R, fun with family, and celebrate festivities with my folks.  The girls looked adorable in their Indian outfits and they had a great time with their nana and nani (maternal grandparents).  Stay tuned for more fun-filled blogs!
