Beach! {part two}

Way back in August we made the trek to Maryland to spend a week with some of our favorite people. We stayed at a resort called Sunset Island that I would highly recommend. There were six kiddos and six adults in our house and we lived the resort life while we were there. We had access to a splash park, pool, restaurant, bay beaches, and lots of other amenities. It was our first time vacationing with a washer and dryer and it was amazing coming home with clean clothes to put away. The little things make me happy.

We all came with toys and games for the little ones to play with in case of rainy weather, but Emma seemed to be the favorite form of entertainment.
While we were at the beach, some of our college friends came into town too and we had a little Millersville reunion, It was so good to see everyone and their families and it sure made me wish I was closer to see them more often.
We didn't spend much time at the house. If we weren't at one of the beaches, you could find us at the pool. I made a water ring sling so that I could wear Emma into the pool, but thanks to the water flowing off of the mushroom, little ones under two were not allowed in the outdoor pool. Emma still had fun watching and playing on the side of the pool.

You can't make a trip to Ocean City without visiting the boardwalk with all of the rides and games. Sophia loved getting tickets and needed a lot of convincing to trade them in for prizes. She could not get enough of the rides either. She was rather disappointed that she was not quite tall enough to ride all of them. I'm glad that Dave will have a rollercoaster buddy when she is bigger.
I can't remember the name of this ride, but as soon as Dave saw it, he knew he wanted to ride it. It basically was a slingshot that shot them up into the air inside a little sphere. It also made me wish that we had added to his life insurance before our beach trip.
Late nights and lots of fun adventures led to some good naps for our little ladies.
Tomorrow I will be sharing the last of our beach pictures (only a few months after they happened).
