Every year since 2014 we have made a trip down to Ocean City NJ even if it is just a day trip. Thankfully we are only about an hour and a half from Ocean City so doing a day trip is doable. This year we only did a day trip and it was a perfect day. We hit the road about 9am and were on the beach by 11:30.
Daddy and #babybigtruck played in the sand while I hung out on my chair, took pictures, and got some sun.
We ventured down to the water and that was a deal breaker for #babybigtruck.
She was fine walking down to the water and was fine walking on the wet sand but the minute a wave crashed she took off something fierce the other way. Funny because last year she was happy as a clam to sit in the shallow water and get wet. Hopefully next year she will be a little more open to the water.
Last year we took a family photo of all 3 of us by a lifeguard boat and while I tried to get #babybigtruck to stay by it for a photo it was too close to the water for her comfort so me and #babybigtruck2 posed this year alone.
After a few hours on the beach we decided to pack up and go get cleaned up grab something to eat and hit the rides for a bit.
She enjoyed riding the carouse with Mama.l and the speedway motor car with Daddy, along with the train with Mama and the firetrucks and boats all alone.
Just for fun check out some of last years Ocean City photos.
