Ocean City Adventuring .... Aaarrrggghhh!

We've been beaching down in Ocean City, Maryland this past week. It's been great fun and I have lots of pictures. If you're my facebook friend, you've probably seen some of them. At some point I'll do a big vacation post with our whole adventure. I also got the unwelcome news this week that because of some state regulations our boys' daycare doesn't have space for Cheeky Monkey in the fall. Now I'm scrambling to find an acceptable situation for the end of August. Ry tends to be anti-nanny, which leaves us with daycare centers and in-home centers. I know we'll figure it out, but I'm not looking forward to the process.


This morning we hopped aboard the Duckaneer for a pirate adventure. Lemme tell you, a good time was had by all. Gummy Bear was suitably attired.
Although he did keep calling his spy glass a stethoscope.

And thar she is, the Duckaneer.

The treasure map was ever so helpfully painted on the ship.

I included this picture mostly because it's one of the cutest picture of Ry and Cheeky Monkey, EVAR!

All the l'il pirates got their mustaches and tattoos.
Confused baby pirate is confused.

When the captain was inking Gummy Bear he said "You've very large ears pirate, what's yer name?"
I think he'd make a very handsome pirate.

We enjoyed the open seas.

And then we were attacked! Of course, we had to defend the ship. Sadly for me, the attacking pirates seemed to target the women with their water cannons and I ended up a very very waterlogged pirate.

We got to see the wild ponies on Assateague Island.

And after our victory, the pirates each got a share of the treasure!



We tipped our pirate captain and first mate because they were fun but also because "pirates need tuition money." And took the bus back to our condo.
Because even pirates ride the bus.
