Way Back When-esday: Shore Traditions

Dateline: Late Summer 2006
Twins' Age: 5

Last weekend, we traveled to Virginia Beach---belatedly yes, but Irene didn't succeed in canceling---for our annual family trip. As we checked in to our much-loved Comfort Inn on the oceanfront, we attempted to determine whether it was our fourth or fifth mini-vacation there...

Way Back When-esday confirms it---it was our SIXTH!

The sheer glee evident on He-Twin's face whenever he's by the Atlantic and She-Twin's determined sand sculpture concentration have changed little in the past six years.

Sand and sun warm my mid-week this Way Back When-esday.

Why don't you dive into your digital files and play along with Way Back When-esday?

Seek out an overlooked snapshot or scan a scrapbook find...share an image you might not otherwise. Tell the tale and place a post on your blog. Be sure and link back to participate in the web-wide reverie...and please leave a comment when you do!

Way-back when, Double Daddy and I wrote a book on twin pregnancy and life with twin infants. Twinspiration: Real-Life Advice from Pregnancy through the First Year (c. 2006, Taylor Trade) is not only available in bookstores nationwide, but it is now on Kindle and Nook! Check it out, and let us hear from you!

Aren't traditional trips the best?? Glad you were still able to make the trip this year. Better late than never!
