Fun-filled Weekend

Hi! This weekend was great. I was able to go to the beach for 2 nights with my family. This included my dad, step-mom, step-sis, step-bro, brother, his gf, and little brother. My step-bro left on Wednesday and my brother & his gf left Friday afternoon. Since I had to work and couldn't get off, I was only able to go for Friday, Saturday and came back Sunday.

I arrived in Ocean City around 12 o'clock. The drive is able 3 hours but since it was beautiful out, I didn't mind it. It allowed me to drive with the windows down and music up :)

(I was at a red-light. Don't worry)

As soon as I got there, we headed to the beach! I couldn't have asked for better beach weather. Sunny and about 90 degrees but a nice breeze was coming off of the ocean. I didn't take any pics at the beach this day though. Around 5, we all came back to the hotel to get showers. Of course I had to get pictures before we left:

 Dad & I.
Step-mom & I.

For dinner, we headed to a restaurant on the water called The Angler. They had great food. While we were there, we saw the sun setting. So pretty.

After dinner, we decided to head to the boardwalk to do some people watching, shopping, ice cream eating and game playing.
(I wish I had taken more pics!)

This was a huge anchor at the end of the boardwalk.
We thought it was neat so we took a pic :)

me and B being silly in a store :) 

we woke up and of course, headed to the beach.
This time, I brought the camera.

The beach.
The sand was SO hot this day, you probably could cook eggs on it.
The beach patrol said they were treating
people for 3rd degree burns on their feet.
I believe it too because I lost my flip flop in the sand
and had to stand on a cooler while my dad went back to grab it for me.

A boat cruising through.
There were also a lot of dolphins out that day but
they too far for me to take a pic.
just relaxing.

Our attempt at a jumping pic. Haha.
We tried about 10 times but we couldn't get it
to where we were all in the air at the same time :(

relaxing by the pool.
I wish I could do this EVERY day!
This was taken in Dewey Beach, DE.
It's about a 40 minute drive from Ocean City.
We came here because they have a ton of shops,
NO sales tax, and things are less expensive.

We ate at an amazing place called Grotto Pizza.
Their pizza was delicious! They're only located in DE and PA.
If you're ever in either of these states, you must try it out!

I left OC around 10 AM. I then headed to M's house because we were going to a baseball game. I'm not sure what we were thinking though because it was disgustingly hot out! My shirt was soaked from sweating (gross, I KNOW).

The game was put on hold during the 7th inning though because a terrible storm came through which brought lightening and thunder. We sat under the pavilion until the rain passed.
We had excellent seats!!
The ball field getting covered.
The rain was coming down hard.

The ball boys rolling out the cover.
It was so cool to see them do this.
They're so fast!

Sadly, we lost to the Twins in a 10-4 game. Better luck next time O's!

This was one of the best weekends I've had so far this summer :)
I hope you ladies had a great weekend as well!

I love OC, MD. It has been way too long since I’ve been there. Love all the family photos!

One of my favorite things about going to the beach is getting to go to dinner on the water.

Hot sand = ouch! I cannot believe people were being treating for burns on their feet because of the sand.

Pool time looks great and I heard there is some awesome outlet shopping in DE. Grotto Pizza is so good.

Event though it was hot and the O’s lost, it’s great that you and M got to spend some time together on Sunday.

Rissy said...

Hey! You're a MD girl like me! woo hoo
Love me some baseball... just wish the Os played well enough to deserve Camden Yards. Love that park about as much as I love staring at Markakis!

Michelle said...

I was at that same Orioles game! It was SO hot. I wasn't sure we were going to last through the game. Thankfully they were handing out cups of ice.

Sounds like you had a great weekend.
