Hey! Didja miss me!? (I kid, of course;). If you're a Facebook follower, you know we were on vacation last week. Went to Ocean City, Maryland, where we've been going since, well, forever. So many traditions and places we must visit when we're down there...it always feels like home when we exit the 90 bridge and pull out onto Coastal Highway. Kids were SO excited and couldn't wait to get there!
By the way, those bags they're holding were lifesavers! The teacher in me can't get enough of stuff like this. I had a ball picking up little things at the Dollar Tree and decorating the plain white bags. The dry-erase boards turned out to be the biggest hit of all, and kept them occupied for a good hour at least. Oh, and the marker had one of those built-in erasers. Can I kiss the genius behind that idea?!
We got there, hit the beach immediately (couldn't get into our place for a couple more hours), and the kids were in HEAVEN.
And of course we had to hit some rides...
Others we checked off the must-do list:
Funnel cakes: check.
(MANY) Candy Kitchen trips: check.
Dumser's (#1 MUST): check.
Kite flying: check.
Passing out from exhaustion: check.
After dinner games on the beach: check.
And Paul's personal favorite - Dressing in matching clothes for pictures on the beach: check! (100% sarcasm of course)
So we came, we swam, we played, we ate like pigs, we had a lot of fun. Good for the soul, good for the family, good for the memories. Thanks OC. See ya next year!
