Trip Update 5: Day 2 Recap and a Look at Day 3

Each day is a blur of activity in Virginia Beach. The itinerary is packed which keeps kids the active (and very tired by room check in the evening). Day 2 was performance day which meant traveling between 2 different school in 2 different towns. The groups did a fantastic job! We will receive results on day 3 at the awards ceremony in the park. The tour of Norfolk naval base was quite impressive. A number of ships where docked including a massive aircraft carrier!
Today we will be taking a tour of Colonial Williamsburg in the morning before heading over to Busch Gardens Amusement Park. It looks like another long, but fun, day. Wi-fi has been spotty so blogging has been slow-going. Tweeting has been the main source of updates. You can follow the trip @graftonBAND on twitter and the trip hashtag is #ghsmusictrip.
We did have some early risers this morning and we got a treat when a pod of dolphins swam by the hotel!
One noticeable trend is the increasing difficulty in getting the kids awake each morning. Today's wake-up call was 6:30am. I got the impression that a number of them where not happy with that...

I will try to add some photos when I update this post.

Thanks for reading!
