Assateague, Maryland Camping Trip, May 2009

The last weekend in May we headed to the beautiful island of Assateague, Maryland, where wild horses roam free, and ghost crabs rule the night. We LOVE it there....campsites are right near the beach, and it is so beautiful. We aren't even beach people, but we love the beach in the mornings and evenings when it is cool and peaceful and there is nobody else to share it is like our own little personal paradise!Okay, well maybe we do have to share our paradise a little, but we don't mind...

Fred found a sand flea, and of course Ally had to hold it...YUCK!

That's Michael dancing in the ocean...yup, that boy always keeps us entertained!

Do you know how many pics I had to take to get Collin smiling? I lost count...LOL.

He hates his picture taken!

This weekend was Ally's 3rd birthday,

and since she is so into horses, it was the perfect place to take her!

Check out Miss Hollywood with her new stroller taking a morning stroll...

Ummm. Sorry. Ally doesn't do 10 MPH. EVER.

Fred, Ally and I ventured out to a little group of islands to see the horses...

especially the "baby" which was Ally's favorite!

This year, I am trying to actually be in the pictures whether I like it or not...

Of course when I read there was a place where I could get a "Bucket" of ice cream,

you know I was all over it!!!

Michael decided he had to have one too...which is particularly ironic because for the first 10 years of his life, he only ordered chips whenever we went out for ice cream!

Only one of the two of us finished completely.....

Did you ever have any doubts knowing my passion for ice cream??

The birthday girl went for a smaller size, and she didn't finish hers either.

We also were able to hit a Nature Center that none of us have ever visited before.

And then of course, we had to play on the playground next to the Nature Center...

I am not sure who loves it more, the 3 year old or the 12 year old....

The horses stopped by our campsite to say goodbye and to wish Ally a happy birthday before we left on Sunday....wasn't that nice of them???

Hi Tonya
Isn't the beach a great place to have a vacation. I have wanted to see those wild ponies for a long time. It looks like such a wonderful place! Thanks for follwing my blog.
