I was so excited to get away for a few days once Rob returned home. It’s so easy to jump right into the life of chores, errands, and family responsibilities. I wanted him to have a little break before he went back to work and started school in July. We decided to go from a Sunday – Wednesday right before Memorial Day to save some money and beat the crowds. The weather ended up being a perfect cool and sunny combination.

 
Parker loved having his Bam & Chief around especially when Chief let him wear his keys. He only unlocked the doors a few times from the boardwalk and hotel room 😉
The boardwalk was fairly quiet which was great. Rob didn’t have to wait in long lines to complete his Ocean City dinning tour of Dumser’s, Dough Rollers, Fisher’s, Fractured Prune, and Thrasher’s. I also enjoyed the best funnel cake I have ever had and the largest water ice.
The last time we were in Ocean City was September 2009. We had only known each other for seven months and Rob had been deployed for three of those months. It’s amazing how much life can change in five years!  

One of the things I really wanted to do was take one of the surrey bikes out for a spin. The four person with a seat up front was perfect for us. Parker loved riding in the front sipping on his juice and eating snacks as he greeted everyone that we passed by. He also really enjoyed looking back and calling each of our names. 🙂 

It was such a good vacation and we left happy and well rested ready to face a rather long to-do list at home.
