Last weekend Alan surprised Ly with a trip to Virginia Beach. Ly had been talking about going for weeks so needless to say she was quite excited when she discovered the destination of her weekend getaway. Despite the fact that the weather was very stormy, the weekend turned out splendidly. After checking into their luxury hotel suite (complete with an ocean view and private beach), Alan taught Ly how to play backgammon - and she then proceeded to beat him multiple times in a row. It is now her new favorite game.
Besides playing backgammon, Ly + Alan enjoyed some quality seafood, watched a few movies, strolled along the boardwalk, did some shopping, and enjoyed the benefits of an in room jacuzzi. It was a very relaxing getaway and Ly was sad went it came time to go back to go to DC.
