We went with our friends to Ocean City MD for a week at the beginning of June. We stayed in an oceanfront hotel and it turns out that we went at kind of the ideal time of year. It was just after Memorial Day so everything was open for the season, but schools weren't out yet so during the week there were very few people around.
We had one really awesome beach day. The weather was perfect.
We also spent time on the boardwalk, playing at an arcade, and going to a little indoor amusement park for the kids.
We also swam in the hotel pools, ate all kinds of goodies along the boardwalk, and spent a little more time on the beach.
Not pictured: our evening games of Settlers of Catan after the kids went to bed and Morgan being "rescued" by a lifeguard (twice).
It was a really great trip and I'm so glad we did it!
