Ocean City MD

We spent Labor Day weekend in Ocean City MD celebrating our friend’s 14th birthday. He and my son have been friends since birth (born only 6 months apart) and he said he wanted to spend his birthday at the beach with his best friend.
Saturday was rainy and windy, though things cleared up in the evening so we got to walk to dinner and walk on the beach. During the rain we opted for a used bookstore and the boys played game after game of laser tag. Sunday though was a beautiful day, We went to a place on the bay for a breakfast of omelets & crepes. Then we walked the entire length of the boardwalk, played skee ball, took some photobooth photos, got a fortune from Voltar, bought some t-shirts that change color in the sun, had some Fractured Prune (hot donuts), and watched a Harry Potter movie marathon that was going on whenever we were back in our room going to sleep.

Road Tripping

Road trips mean road food, and of course when we are down south we have to stop in to a Krispy Kreme! We don’t have any of the storefronts around where we live, so we get excited about watching the donuts come of the conveyer belts. I picked up one of their birthday mugs and tin of donuts for us all.

Once in South Carolina we went to Mitchelville beach with my parents. When the tide is out it is the best for finding shells and watching the wild life. You have to walk out so far to get to the water, its wonderful! We saw horseshoe crabs, millions of little sand crabs. You can also find huge amazing shells..but most of them have little creatures inside so you can’t keep them, but I always think it’s kind of fun to check.

We saw a lot of great neon signs on the road, I think’s its funny when restaurants have cute cartoon versions of the animals they serve…poor little joe! My other favorite pig is of course the Piggly Wiggly mascot. I was excited that they had coffee mugs this time.
On the drive back home we had to stop in to South Of The Border. It was getting dark so all the great neon signs were on. Our favorite thing though was a little mine craft creeper someone had attached to one of the buildings. B said it just made his night! It was a crazy fun road trip though, lots of hotels (and swimming in the hotel pools!!) Lucky for me Heather did all the highway driving (I had made a deal that I would rent the car if she did the driving, I think I lucked out)
