Every summer that we aren't due to birth a human we head down to Matt's aunt and uncle's house in Ocean City, Maryland for a long weekend. Matt's brother and his family made the trek as well with their too littles and a car full of gear. On Friday we packed up and headed to the beach, which is no small feat considering. When I was younger we went to the beach with a towel. Maybe a drink. Now it's carts and umbrellas and chairs and coolers and toys and etc. I don't hate it. But it's not a walk in the sand.
Dom loved just sitting in the sand, marinating in it if you will. He ate a lot of it, par for the course. The kids wanted to do nothing but jump waves, which is a daddy job if you ask me. It was a tad chilly right by the water that day so I preferred to sit back a bit and just soak it all in... All while trying to keep as much sand as I could off my person.
After lunch we headed back to put the babies down for their naps before heading over to the pool for a few hours. Soaking up some vitamin d like I do best! Followed by dinner of course and then we took the boat out for a quick spin under the Harpoon Hanna's bridge and back. Dom rocked his pink life jacket (thank you baby Avery!) and hated every second. But it was great to get out and see Cap'n Glenn and his First Mate navigate their new boat!
We then let the bigger kids stay up late and watch the sun set over the bay... They get good sky there that's for sure.
