land of odd

Great way to start a vacation...asleep!
You can see the bay from our porch.
It's fun to watch the boats go by.
We just returned from a great mini-getaway downee ocean, hun. Our trip was way to short, but then, I guess that's always how it goes.

It amazes me how adaptable kids can be. Despite the newness of the place, our little guy closed his eyes for every nap and bedtime with no qualms and slept, well, like a baby. (It helps to be wiped out from the sun and sand, too.) I'm talking 3 to 3 1/2 hour naps, people. And no waking during the night! He somehow knew and understood that daddy and I were going to be right there when he woke up.

In this strange land of Ocean City, Maryland our tot learned many things. For example, rubbing sunscreen in your eyes doesn't feel nice. Sand tastes gross with granola. Sun hats are non-negotiable (for both SPF and cuteness factors). Salt water taffy tastes like...well, mommy still won't let you have any but Gram and Pop will let you eat anything in exchange for kisses or smiles. To our amusement, your first taste of salsa at La Hacienda was magnifico!

Chasing sea gulls, a fave new pastime.

If only we'd had time for Thrasher's vinegar fries and Fischer's popcorn on the boardwalk. We'll be back, O.C. We'll be back.

See mom, I didn't need to wear that sun hat!
