Though I'm elated to bid farewell to the awful heat, it's somewhat bittersweet that summer is winding down.
We've been enjoying summertime outings to the Delaware Seashore, and this past weekend SoJo and I met some friends there for swimming and exploring the boardwalk in Ocean City, Maryland.
It's such an amazing boardwalk, with family-friendly activities (this is no Seaside Heights, Jersey Shore fans) and a really wide beach. I like that the sand just rolls up to the boardwalk, no trekking up steps and over the dunes.
There's even a wooden play castle to explore on the beach, where you land in the endless sandbox rather than on concrete.
And of course there's simply the sand and sea to play in.
At night, the boardwalk twinkles with lights and carnival rides, and despite the look of trepidation on his face, SoJo had such fun riding these.
But not before the race to finish a dripping ice cream cone (sorry, no shots of that--too busy licking!).
So how's your summer winding down? Are you looking forward to fall? I sure am! Jubilantly!
