Boardwalk at Night

I was pretty tired after the tea party, but the rest of my extended in law family was ready to go to Ocean City for the evening. I considered telling my family we were staying home, but Josiah and Anna really wanted to go. I calculated the risk and we went. I knew that we would spend some time at the water and, I thought, maybe we would be able to avoid the Boardwalk altogether so I packed us a supper and we left. Traffic was bad and it took us 90 minutes to get to the inlet which made for some very hungry children and a Mom that was already regretting the trip.

It was just about sunset when we arrived. This was the first time in a very long time that we were at the ocean beach. Aliza and Josiah LOVED the waves. They were covered with sand in very short order.

Isaiah ate a good amount of sand.
Anna was completely enthralled with the lights and rides. So we walked the Boardwalk. It was busy and I was carrying Isaiah and I was tired. It was not fun. I prefer the mountains where there are no people and my children can run free. I was counting four heads constantly--even though one was attached to me and the others were holding our hands!
We met the rest of our group and Grandpa bought ice cream which made the children very happy.
We got home at 10pm. Baths were required and then we all fell asleep instantly. Now I can say we've been to Ocean City and we don't have to do that again for a very long time!
