Avalon Beach Vacation

We arrived on Friday night around 11:30......that's a late drive for 2 tired old people! We stopped to fill up the car with gas, buy coffee and get a bite to eat before getting too far on the journey. Followed our GPS which got us there!

 Saturday was spent at the house while Corey, Christy and the kids attended Christy's brothers wedding on the beach. We ate lunch at a deli in town and got some coffee at a shop next to it. Was a beautiful day!



We picked up the kids and Gavin (the grooms son) before the reception was over. Walked the beach for a while then headed back to the house. The kids had a wonderful time playing!

Now that Zoe walks, she tries to keep up with Aidan and Gavin!

What ya lookin' at, kids?

Pop Pop, are you in there?

We headed to the beach around 11 on Sunday. Christy's brother and his new wife (left for the Honeymoon on Monday), several of their friends and Christy's parents and 2 sisters joined us. It started out as a cloudy day but the sun soon was out bright and warm. Loved the empty beaches!

Mommy and Baby =)

Pop Pop thinks this would be a great way to get back to the house!

This is safer =)

Sunday evening we met Christy's parents, sister and daughter at the Ocean City boardwalk. We ate at a little restaurant that sold pizza, subs and salads. The food was really good. We had a great time!

Monday was back on the beach for a couple of hours before heading home again.

Zoe splashes in the wet sand...
this kid loves getting dirty!

What is not to love about this??


 I think a new tradition is in order....September week-end at the beach every year! Yes, indeed!

Sounds like such a wonderful time.
