I would like to apologize for taking the summer off from blogging. I didn’t mean to, it just sort of happened and now I have a lot of catching up to do.
We had a great summer and it started with our 4th of July Trip to Ocean City!
The first part of the week was just me, Michelle and the kids.
The weather wasn’t ideal this year and much of the time we were in sweatshirts and shorts,
but it didn’t stop the kids from having a blast on the beach!
Pam was in Ocean City for part of the week and we were thrilled she was able to come and hang out for a bit!
Mike joined us mid week and we had a great time celebrating Michelle’s birthday and the 4th of July! As a tradition we always get fun pedicures on the 4th of July.
And since we pretty much looked the nicest on the 4th we torture everyone with a million pictures!
Mike looks thrilled in this one right?!
And here’s my crazy bunch!
We just look odd and formal in this one, totally not us!!!
Me and my babies
The loves of my life!
And we can’t forget me and Michelle!!
After all the picture fun we hit Fish Tales! We didn’t go the year before and tried someplace new just to hate it, so it was great being back at our old favorite!
The kids love Fish Tales as they fill their arms up with painted on tattoos!
And let’s not forget it was Michelle’s Birthday and I made the most awesome delicious cake!
The fireworks were a bit of a bust due to cloud cover, and wind, but we still had fun playing on the beach watching what we could see.
Michelle and her kids had never been crabbing so Mike took us all crabbing the next day!
There’s a lot of sitting around and waiting involved in crabbing.
We didn’t have much luck at the first place, but we really wanted to catch some crabs so we tried another place and hit the jackpot!
Everyone caught at least one crab. Which remember we do this for fun and threw them all back.
The kids loved it!
One of the coolest things we saw were all these little crabs running around. It was super cool and creepy all at the same time.
Thanks to a great babysitter, Me, Mike and Michelle enjoyed a great night of boardwalk bar hopping.
And a special thanks to Mike for watching the kids the next night so Michelle and I could go out for a girls night! We had a blast!
It really was a great week!
