“V-A-C-A-T-I-O-N…in the Summertime!”
(The title of this post are the lyrics of a song that my dad would break into at the top of his lungs as our family vacation neared each year. My sister and I would pretend to be annoyed and embarassed by this display of unbridled excitement, but now, I find myself singing the same song, at the top of my lungs, to Madelyn. She just laughs. )
The Ross family just returned from our summer vacation in Ocean City, NJ with the Anderson’s and Forrer’s. We had such a great time! This year, I think Ben and I prepared ourselves a bit more for what vacation is now like with 2 little ones to still care for! We had fun with the family, and were even able to relax every now and then! Here are some highlights from our trip (I’ll try posting pics again later):
*Madelyn’s first time flying a kite (Thanks Uncle Matt!)
*AJ’s first time in sand (He didn’t think it was anything special!)
*Maddie and Daddy playing in the ocean
*AJ rolling over from his belly to his back for the first time!
*Morning Surrey Adventures…
*Daddy-Daughter Day (rides on the boardwalk)
*Mommy-Son Day (snacks and naps)
*Waking up to sweet sleepy little Brayden, Madelyn, and Anderson
*Long relaxing walks on the boardwalk
*Third annual Movie Night…this time with S’mores!
Thanks so much Mimi and Pappy for your generosity…we would not have been able to do a vacation like this without you! xoxoxo
