dom meets the ocean and more

Oh my feelings about young children and the beach are quite firmly placed in the category of I HATE IT. But this year! Oh how pleasantly my brood surprised me! They stayed by us. They didn't eat sand. Nobody pooped in their diaper. Dom didn't like the ocean but didn't mind sitting under the umbrellas. He even took a nap laying on my chest!!! Maybe we can be beach bums once more! Oh that's a happy thought!

Uncle Dan and Heidi arrived!!! Or as Letty calls her, her sweetheart. The arrival of these two greatly eased our job as parents. Daniel take the wheel. 

It was hot in OCMD this past weekend! So so hot. We took the group back to the pool to attempt to wear the children out AGAIN before having a repeat evening of the night before. Pizza and drinks on the deck. And the kids got to celebrate their birthdays early since Aunt Sue and Uncle Glenn won't be able to make their birthday parties. These gifts were such a hit! Monster trucks! Coloring! On a backpack no less! It's allowed!!
