Vacation and Father's Day all wrapped up into one

    What a week! We had a great time.  Lets rewind and take a look at it.  It started on Saturday June 18th.  We packed up the car and headed to the beach.  O was so excited and so was his Daddy.  We headed out a little later than planned just because I had so much to do to get ready.  But we got there with not problems.

   As soon as we got into our condo the boys ran right for the balcony to check out the beach.  They loved watching the action from up high.  This is where they spent a lot of their time when we were at the condo.

  We settled in and all the boys sat down to relax and take in the sights!  Hubby was in heaven.  He loves the beach and having his boys hanging with him just made his day.

Sunday was father's day.  It rained but we hit the beach anyway.

Hubby still got to take his boys to the beach and even got into the ocean.  He seemed to enjoy himself as well as the boys.  It was a good start to a vacation that included:
There were castles to be built:

 Juice boxes to be drank:

Rides to ride:

 and a first roller coaster to ride!

There were kites to fly:

and cloth diapered babies playing in the sand

 We made new friends:

 tried new things:

Played in the surf:
  and had a few bumps along the way.  On Monday we came back to our condo after a great time on the boardwalk to find our condo flooded.  A pipe had burst some time while we were gone and flooded the condo.  After many phone calls to the rental company and many hours standing in a flooded condo we were moved, at 11:15 pm, to a new condo in the same building.  Not as nice as they first one but it worked. 
    On Saturday morning we were waken by cries from O, who had rolled over and bumped his head on the nightstand.  Not only did he bump his head but he cut the corner of his eye which required a trip to the E.R.  Since it was our day to come home anyway, we packed it up and made the trip to the E.R. then home.  O is all patched up and we are home!

The last night we were there some bad storms moved through.  But they left behind one great rainbow:

   So this is the picture I like to end our vacation with.  A rainbow across the beach.  This is what will stick in my mind, no bumps no bruises just rainbows!
