The July trip to NYC


I always love visiting NYC, I love the atmosphere and I love the company.  This time it was all about the things my Daddy wanted to experience since he was along for the trip.

Day 1 we decided on Coney Island since he had not been there before. I am never quite sure why he wants to visit beaches since he doesn’t actually go in the water, but I never question it because well I want to go to the beach anyway 🙂

I was able to get a few cool shots of the rocks and seagulls, total added bonus 🙂

Day 2 we went to Times Square to the Toys R Us, the munchkins each got to pick a toy from PAPA and C was really excited because it was the first time we got the My little pony car on the wheel.

Then we headed over to Rockefeller Center and went to the Lego Store

The munchkins loved filling up their buckets with hand picked legos

After that we stopped by the NBC Experience Store and A was delighted that they had the chair from The Voice

When we got back that night we had A’s Ninjago Surprise Party

My dad and I left the next day and the munchkins stayed with Grandpa and Grandma, It was rough leaving them because I barely do it, but I know they are having a great time, and I am just looking forward to picking them up and spending another week in the city with family


Our Vacation to Ocean City Maryland


It took me forever to write this post because I have had so much going on with C’s surgery.  Better late than never right?

We went on Vacation to Ocean City MD, and stayed in a condo on the beach

It was about 100 feet from the water and we loved it there.

Day one we went to Rita’s because we had been there in Galveston, TX and loved it

We did a lot of out to dinners, and to be honest I wasn’t very impressed by the seafood there.

Day 1 we spent a lot of time on the beach just hanging out and swimming and I didn’t really take any pics although I can say we found a lot of seashells while we were there
These are just some of them.

And even with sunscreen I ended up burning to a crisp! Eventually it blistered and I had to get first aide cream and wear nothing but halter tops or dresses OUCH!

Day 2 we went to Jolly Rogers, Jolly Rogers at the Pier, and Splash Mountain

C rode her very 1st big people rollercoaster the avalanche
She immediately wanted to ride again!

Day 3 we went to the boardwalk and Ripley’s
They were trying to make weird shapes with their tongues like the pictures in Ripley’s

This was agreed by all of us the best part of Ripley’s the way the tunnel spun made it seem as if the bridge you were walking on was going to flip over…see my daddy hanging on for dear life lol

That evening we flew kites too!


C got upset because her kite broke, but her amazing big brother let her fly his 🙂

Day 4 we decided to just relax in for the day and then took the munchkins to dinner and mini golf in the evening after it cooled off

Day 5 we took the munchkins on the Duckaneer
Which was so much more fun than I thought it would be
The munchkins got to be pirates and fight more pirates trying to take over the boat for treasure
And I got turned into a bearded lady
My munchkins thought this was hilarious

Day 6 was our final day on vacation  and again we enjoyed the beach, it was also the first day I was not in extreme pain from my sunburn!
While C wanted to learn to surf, never mind that’s a boogie board A was content to splash in the waves

A and I also took a walk every night to see the beach, look for seashells and see if we could find any sea life buzzing about, We found lots of all!
This little guy had turned over on his back willing to except his fate of death when A helped him out!

I think all of us were pretty sad when it came time to leave
