I don’t know about yinz guys but September has been a blur! I’m honestly not sure how this month slipped by but it’s been a pretty good one for our family.
We went to the beach!
This motley crew, plus Aunt Stephanie, took over the beaches of Ocean City, MD during the second week of September. And let me just say…it’s the way to do it! Crowds were sparse, the beach was empty, the ocean was warm(ish), and the cost was so much lower than peak season.
I thinks it’s safe to say…we have a new Soscia family tradition (at least until the kids are in school).
We booked our OCEAN FRONT condo with Coldwell Banker Vacations and they were so easy to work with. I found our condo right on their website and they made the process pretty seamless. Just how I like it.
So who was in attendance for this trip? Greyson & Fynnlee, obviously. Jarrad and I.
And Grandma and Papa.
We had a full house. But the great thing about our condo (other than being RIGHT ON THE BEACH) was it had 4 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. So plenty of room to spread out.
Greyson and Fynnlee were so spoiled by tons of attention from their grandparents, plus Aunt Steph, plus their parents…so this vacation was awesome from the get go. But never mind that. These babes fell in love with the beach and the ocean! Oh my heart…I was hoping they would love it is as much as I do. Give them all the sand and all the salt water and they were happy as clams. As documented in the photos.
Greyson was afraid of the water at first…that fear was squashed by the end of the week. And Fynnlee didn’t love the sand at the beginning of the summer…and that fear was squashed the minute her feet touched the beach.
So what else did we do? A giant kitchen clambake (another Soscia family beach tradition)
Stephanie and I have this perfected!
A few days were spent on the boardwalk
But the best part of the trip, was soaking up the days with my sweet babes and my amazing husband (we celebrated 6 years together at on vacation). Plus our fabulous families…b/c let’s face it. It takes a village to create a great vacation!
My goodness…I love this family of mine.
My happy place is by the ocean, with my feet in the sand. I’m so thrilled that our kiddos feel the same way. Till next year, OCMD!
