We had such a great weekend at the beach. Actually, I should say that we had a great day at the beach...because it ended up being a much shorter weekend than we had originally planned. We were going to take Brady out of school on Friday, but because he has missed so much school this year, we used our better judgement and decided against it. I also got a call to sub on Friday...so it all worked out and we left right after school. We are about 3 and 1/2 hours from Ocean City, Maryland. We had planned to stay later on Sunday to make up for lost time...but then Brady's team tennis schedule changed and we had to leave early Sunday morning to get back for his match. So, that left us just Saturday...and we made the most of it. It wasn't as sunny or as warm as I had hoped...but it didn't matter. The beach is truly my favorite place to go. And even though I have been tired the last two days, I feel rejuvenated as a mom and a wife. Can't wait to
move there go back!
Here's some of what we packed into a short amount of time:
We had breakfast at this 50's diner at the resort.
They put a basket of warm donuts on the table.
The little t.v. played classic cartoons like Popeye, Jughead, Tom and Jerry and Mighty Mouse.
You could also choose from Little Rascals, Gidget and The Munsters.
We played mini golf at the resort and at a place nearby.
I love that Brady is old enough now and more patient to wait for his turn and play the game right. Can you tell I'm a little competitive? Let's just say, I brought my A game!
We briefly stopped at two different arcades...waiting for it to warm
up so that we could get to the beach already!
Finally, made it to the beach...but not without our sweatshirts!
We were trying to get Brady to jump up in the air so I could get a fun picture... the boy cannot jump!
We drove around Assateague Island. There are between 100-150 wild ponies on the island.
Assateague is about 10 minutes away from where we were staying in Ocean City.
Looking for wild ponies!
On Friday night we made it to the resort just in time to swim for about an hour.
The three of us played water volleyball (with the beach ball) against some other people.
(We weren't keeping score...but we clearly won.)
Saturday evening Brady swam for over two hours.
Man, I love this kid! And, thank goodness he doesn't mind having his picture taken!
Have a great week!
