Who knew??

There is now a coffee shop right on Yorktown Beach! This is one of favorite little spots. Its not to far of a drive and its such a nice drive on the parkway!

Its like the most kid friendly beach in our opinion, not too crowded, not a crazy rowdy bunch either. Also they have it roped off so that you cant go too deep. Just watch for jellyfish!

The Green mountain coffee shop is super good! Its attached to a Ben and Jerrys. They have a wide vareity of every coffee drink you can imagine, even some blended up with ice cream, yum!! There can be a line out the door at times but it is worth the wait. The staff is friendly, quick, and efficient. There is plenty of seating inside and out. It is a fun place, the decor is bright and cheerful, pretty clouds painted on the wall. It is definitely pricey, we must warn you.

Bean score then, the moment you have all been waiting for, beach pictures!!!

I’m sure you must have noticed by now that my son (bean 1) wears his gloves 24/7, yes, he even sleeps in them. Everyone has their quirks I suppose. It does get a little tricky at places like the beach. Haha!

Bean 2 may need to start wearing gloves, haha. He doesn’t like the feeling of anything on his hands and feet. If he steps on a crumb he runs to me, “Momma, momma” sticks his foot up in the air and trusts that I will remove it immediately. So this made the sand at the beach was interesting for him too. These are the things that will be hilarious when they are all grown up and we think back and cherish even the silliest of memories.

Momma bean

Im totally in love with Charlottesville! This is momma bean speaking of course, poppa bean on the other hand, takes me to big cities on special occasions but is perfectly happy in the middle of nowhere with his closest neighbor being a bear. Something we both love, obviously is adventure and finding new coffeeshops. Everytime we go to Charlottesville we seem to find at least one new cafe. This time it was Cafe Cubano.

112 Main Street
Charlottesville, VA

They had a very impressive food menu and drink list. The breakfast was delicious. The coffee creations were unique, tasty, and there were plenty of them! The place was spacious, lots of seating indoor and out. I got a picture of a small part of the menu, wish i would have gotten more. Poppa bean had the nutty irishman which was hazelnut and irish cream. He is still raving about it. Momma bean had the carmello, it was as it sounds,  mocha and carmel, delicious! We really enjoyed this place and will definitely be back. It comes highly recommend by these beans.

Shopping bean

Java chocolate cafe is inside of the Virginia Center Commons mall and it is not your average “mall coffee” it is truly good! It is a family owned and operated business which we love and support as much as possible. The taste is superb from one of the best plain lattes weve ever had to their amazing peppermint patty! The atmosphere is welcoming but a little small, esp for large families or groups and the staff is always speedy and sweet. Now, lets see how they did…
