I grew up going to Ocean City, MD during the summer. We would ride our bikes on the boardwalk, eat a donut at a shop no longer there, then spend the day at the beach. I still love OC, MD because it immediately brings back all those warm fuzzy feelings from my childhood. I hope that we can create some of those same feelings in our boys.
Even though we went for just an overnight trip at the end of March, there were plenty of people at the beach. It was a beautiful Saturday: sunny and in the low 70s.
We stopped right on the boardwalk and let Charlie take off his socks and shoes and indulge. Charlie loved playing in the sand and the only way to get him out was the promise of playing games “in a little bit”.
While walking, we saw a wedding taking place. How cool is that?
If you’re not familiar with Ocean Gallery, you need to check it out the next time you’re in Ocean City, MD. It is amazing on the inside and out. You’ll easily spend an hour wandering around inside. On the outside they have a “Batmobile”. This was always awesome to me when I was younger, so I was hoping it would have the same effect on Charlie.
And yes, he knew it was Batman’s car. This nerdy mommy is proud. We’re doing something right!
Saw this and had to snap a pic. It just makes me feel incredibly old that they called Goosebumps books “VINTAGE”.
Charlie said that a shark crashed into the building and said it was stuck. He then told us that we needed to help it get out. My boy has a golden heart.
We went to Marty’s Playground. In my opinion, this has always been the best arcade on the Boardwalk. I saw this pirate shooting game that both Daddy and Charlie could sit in. Daddy got to play a video game (he so rarely gets to enjoy them anymore) and Charlie thought he was playing. This was $1 well spent.
We finished our boardwalk day up with pizza at Dough Roller. It’s a staple at the beach.
