Ocean City Vacay: Day 3

So, I know my day three riddle is lame. What I was trying to get at was that we went to the beach at the boardwalk on the third day! They have some jungle gyms in the shape of castles and pirate ships and the kids were dying to play on them each time we went to the boardwalk. They were always really crowded, so Duncan's idea was to bring all of our digging stuff to the boardwalk early in the morning (these photos were taken starting at 9:27am) and hang out on the beach by one of the climbing thingies. It was great fun!

Linus enjoyed the slide.

Violet tried her hand at sliding WITH her bucket. It turned out quite well!

Amelie enjoyed the overall experience!

Duncan was a little tall for the castle, but he managed to police Linus on the ladder just fine.

We has such a great time on this little mini vacation. Our trip home, on rainy day four, took twice as long as it should have, thanks to the traffic from Cruisin' Ocean City. The kids couldn't have cared less! When we pulled into the driveway, the girls climbed into the front seats, Violet driving and Amelie riding shotgun, and pretended that they were returning to Ocean City.
It was that good!
We're thankful that have had this opportunity and look forward to our next trip to the beach.

Sounds like it was a blast!

We were visiting Nick's Dad today and drove by your house (I think) just to see if you were outside (since I don't know your house number) so we could wave hello as we drove by.

Happy Summer to you!
