And what would a trip to Virginia Beach be without Tuesday Trivia night at Murphy's. MC'ed by none other than Uncle John Ickes and Aunt Vonia. A great family night out!
How could I forget to post our Massachusetts antics??! The very best part of Massachusetts by far is Rebecca Ickes Ward and her amazing family. She did a great job representing the Ward Family and so sorry we missed Tim, Kiera and Sage. Enjoyed our visit immensely but next time it needs to involve more wine! Love you so much!!
