Ocean City - day 2

Today was our second and last day in Ocean City. It was a quick trip, but definitely worth the drive. This morning we woke up and had coffee and breakfast out on the balcony overlooking the ocean. It was gorgeous! The sun was shining and there was a nice breeze. Hillary and I even spotted a pod of dolphins swimming along!

We got moving quickly and went straight out to the beach. It was really windy when we got out there, but that didn't bother us. Hillary and Grandma set out again to make a huge sandcastle for Owen - complete with a moat and bridge! When Grandma went to sit down in her beach chair and Owen noticed she wasn't there beside him he looked over at her and said, "Grandma, play! Grandma, play!" so she went back and played some more. Mommy mainly stayed wrapped up in her double beach towel and watched all the fun. It was so relaxing to sit and enjoy the sunshine, sand in my toes, and sounds of the waves crashing in front of us. Owen sported his new "Ocean City" baseball cap that Grandma bought him until it blew off his head into the water. It was rescued quickly by Aunt Hillary. He'll be wearing that cap the rest of this summer I'm sure.

After some quality beach time we again went up to the hotel pool to swim for a little and wash some sand off before heading back up to the room. We all got showers (Owen and I took a jacuzzi swim and he had so much fun saying the word jacuzzi the rest of the day which was funny), we got packed up, and waved goodbye for now to Ocean City. Owen and I had so much fun with Grandma and Aunt Hillary and thank them so much for inviting us to join them!
