Beach Weekend


This past weekend, we headed down to Ocean City, NJ for a fun few days at the beach. The weather was beautiful and we had a blast!

David had the time of his life playing in the ocean. He could've stayed out there all day! And of course, he met some new friends. :) He loves to make new friends. Everywhere he goes, he makes a new friend.













Sweet baby boy. Liam is full of smiles now. I love it!

Owen wasn't so sure about the ocean, but boy did he LOVE playing in the sand! He would just lay in it, roll around in it, make and "cook pies". It was so cute!


David, Owen and I had fun digging holes at the water and watching the waves come and fill it up!





Both boys enjoyed filling up their buckets with water.


We had a nice time swimming at the pool at our hotel too. David is getting better and better each time he goes in the water. He is swimming under water so well and learning to keep his head above water. We can't wait until he starts official swim lessons this month.



Cotton candy on the boardwalk! And funnel cakes and ice cream...


We went to the two little amusement parks and had such fun on the rides. David and Owen both love it.

David's favorite ride was this mini-roller coaster as you can see by the look on his face! Owen loved the train ride.







We went to a little restaurant on the water and had a great view! We had some yummy seafood and watched the sunset.





Mack and Manco's...a favorite!!!

I have heard from lots of people that Mack and Mancos is THE place to go in Ocean City. I feel like I should go...just for the pizza.
