First night in Ocean City

We checked in around 3pm and made it to our condo by 3:30, Molly, Tim and Nate were close behind. It was the perfect size for us, two bedrooms and two baths with a kitchen open to the dining room/living room area. We also had a nice balcony with table and chairs which had an ocean view.

After settling in and putting our suits on, we headed out to the beach to catch the last of the sun before heading out to dinner. After trying the Green Turtle and finding out there was a 45 minute wait which we knew the kids wouldn't be able to tolerate in the heat, we ended up at the "oceanfront restaurant" of a nearby hotel, which turned out to be an excellent choice (all Molly's idea). We enjoyed crab cakes while the kiddos had chicken nuggets and fries.
By the time we got back to the condo we were all ready to hit the hay to prepare for the 6am wake-up call we knew awaited us. Bedtime was a challenge, to say the least. I thought we would be fine setting up the PackN'Play in our room with Owen's toddler mattress on the floor. Boy was I wrong. He thought it was playtime and was just so hilarious to climb on Vivi's PackN'Play which in turn woke her up screaming, which lead to Owen screaming when I reprimanded him for waking her up. Luckily, Ben had a plan. His suggestion of moving Vivi's PackN'Play to the den was the perfect solution and worked like a charm. Thank goodness we had a den.
