Ocean City Water Park

It's Monday night and Amy is engrossed in the Olympics.  I can't believe they are actually pulling it off after it being delayed for a year.  I watched some the sake boarding.  That was crazy.  Anyway, back to last Saturday.  After the beach, we went to the pool.  
I caught a picture of Aden and Lanie!

Big crowd in the pool!

Then we got some quality deck time in.  
We brought in food for dinner.  Lanie was still there!
The twins ran next door to help Steven open his presents.  

This is going to be trouble.  
We didn't go out, just hung out all night.  
These pictures came Sunday morning.  Love this one.  

Don't know what Marathon is.  
Apparently Ariel was a part of it.  

In the past, you might remember us meeting Amy's old babysitter, who lives in Las Vegas.  Her family comes in every year to stay in Ocean City, so we try and see them.  We met at Uncle Bill's pancake house and we caught up!
The whole crew!
Eli had been begging to go to the Ocean City water park and since we were there...

Hey Noah!

Eli sometimes likes to get splashed and sometimes doesn't.  You never know.  

They had so much fun.  
Amy and Noah went on a big slide.  I stayed with Eli.  

We were actually there a while.  
Then we headed out.  
Elaine and Edmond and family were actually on their way out.  We didn't see them the whole time but at least we did get a chance.  
Love that ferris wheel Eli.  My dad and Aden built it.  
Time to head home!

Rebecca and Jeremy Are Back!

It's Sunday night.  We did not go to the shore this weekend!  It was weird being home but everyone seemed to need a break from the back and forth.  I have a ton of pics from last Saturday, so I'm only doing some of them in this post.  We woke up to a couple of Ariel pictures.  

Then I woke up to see what the kids were doing.  All the other adults slept in.  
Oh, there are the girls in the background.  
The kids played well together.  
Wil and Emily are sweet kids.  

We headed out.  Wil was excited for a ride in my car.  
We went to the point in Longport.  They love it there.  We've been there before with them.  

I'm King of the World!

I made a picture!
We ran out of beach and had to climb the rocks.  

Those are some big rocks.  

Eli walked all the way out to the ocean.  

Contemplating the world.  

Time to head back.  
The beach cart is piled up and ready to go!
It was little Steven's birthday next door.  They had a huge 6th birthday party on the beach.  

It was a beautiful day to hang with great friends.  

Eli was very adventurous for Eli.  
Hey Emily.  
So, it was hard to get a picture but Aden's friend from camp kind of just showed up to hang with him for the day!  And the craziest part was it was a girl!  She had him in the ocean for a while amongst other things.  He later told me that women are exhausting!  Little does he know!
Sweet moment!
The party was huge.  Over 80 people.  We grabbed some food.  
But we still had lunch delivered.  

Aden's friend Lanie was great with the kids.  
So who is this girl Aden?
Noah had a lousy day.  Cranky and tired, he slept a lot. 
College buddies Amy and Rebecca.  
New buddies Emily and Eli.  
The cart all packed up to leave.  
It's really not so bad anymore.  The cart has been awesome.  To be continued...
