Memorial Day Weekend 2015 // Ocean City, MD guide
Tuesday, May 26, 2015
Hey party people :)
The day after a long weekend at the beach is always a little bit of a downer but I'm so happy we survived our first vacation as a family of four! I'm using the word "vacation" loosely here because it honestly wasn't that relaxing to be chasing Hadley & nursing Nora all while jealously watching everyone else indulge in cocktails but at least the scenery was nice!!!!! And we got some yummy grub which is always high on my list of fun things to do.
^^I did get to enjoy a few cocktails over the weekend, this DEELICIOUS margarita being one!!! ARRRRRRIBA!!!!
^^^This is Hadley in that same suit when she was 13 weeks old. Nora looks almost the same size as her already, our little chunky monkey!!!! And I still think they are totally little twins.
^^^This is what post-Whole30 dreams are made of... carbs, cheese & creamy coffee!!!!
^^^The water was FREEZING but this wild child did not care one bit.
^^^This kid and her bubbles. And her obsession with Christmas movies in May.
^^^Her first nap on the beach!
If you're ever in the Ocean City, Maryland area and are looking for some good grub or places to visit here are a few of our favorites...
Fractured Prune for donuts. I love the Rocky Shores and tried the French Toast for the first time this weekend. They're so tasty it's honestly beyond words. Holy moly is about all I got.
Crab Bag for big crabs at great prices. Make sure to get there early and sit at the outdoor pavilion. The house margarita was just what mama needed. And if you're looking for ridiculously, oversized, I might piss-my-bed-tonight margaritas with Mexican food and a fun vibe then you should check out Tequila Mockingbird. The name gets me every time... so clever!
Kirby's Pub has some great bar food and a low-key, local feel.
Seacrets has some of the best sunset views you'll see over the bay in Ocean City. You'll feel like you're stepping straight into Jamaica and the food is pretty good, too. I love the fish taco, jerk chicken and the house special drink, Pain in de Ass. Word of warning: do not go at peak hours on holidays with your babies unless you want to scar them for life and get thrown up on by a half-to-fully naked person. If you're looking for a fun place for a bachelorette party though, this is your jam! Nothing beats floating in the bay while being served tasty drinks.
This was my first time trying Uber Bagels down there but I really liked it! Great breakfast sandwich options and yummy NYC style bagels.
For a good sub on the beach, order DeVito's to-go and try their Special Italian Coldcut.
For ice cream, hit up King Kone for tons of hand-dipped, soft serve, toppings and milkshake options. Just look for the big gorilla outside the front door at their North OC location.
I hope you all had a great Memorial Day Weekend. Thank you to all of you who serve, have served or have lost loved ones defending this country. I can't even begin to imagine that kind of sacrifice and I couldn't be more thankful while watching my little babies enjoy their freedoms.
Here's to the unofficial start of SUMMER!!!!!!!!!
If you're interested, here's our Memorial Day Weekend post from last year. I can't get over little, pudgey Hadley!!!! My baby girl is growing up so fast and I CAN'T TAKE IT, WAH!!! 2 YEARS OLD ON SATURDAY!!!!! MADNESS.
