Ocean City, Maryland 2015

Family Vacation 2015

Another summer, another annual family vacation with a twist.  For nine years we have always stayed with family, either sharing a condo with others or whole house, this year we broke off finally and booked our own house.  This year I didn't have to worry about others disciplining my kids, my kids getting upset and stepping on toes.  Roam kids roam! We stayed in the same community we usually stay in, but just the four of us together, planning our days.

Chevy lent us an amazing 2015 Tahoe (have I mentioned how much I LOVE the Tahoe lately?). This truck is incredible and makes road trips a breeze with room, features and the kids are happy too! Love the ease of captain seats to also reach the usable third row. This is number one on our list for our next family vehicle.  Weeks worth of luggage, bikes, and bags  fit with plenty of extra room and my family of four (we could have brought the dogs).






Our rental was beautiful and roomy- a three floor, four bedroom, family retreat.  We had breakfast outdoors in the morning, evenings sat out listening to the frogs in the ponds around the community.  Daily bike rides to the pool, around the block, or to Starbucks.  The kids did great and loved the freedom, bike paths and fun.  Can you believe though in the week we stayed there we never went to the beach/ocean?

The kids loved the pools, we visited Assateague Island one day and did swim in the bay there while searching for horses.  Amusement park visits meant riding the rollercoasters over and over. Mini-golf, go-karts and playing games on the boardwalk. Having exclusive family time was wonderful, much needed without daily responsibilities at home.

Next year we are looking into similar places, having the freedom of choices, possibilities are endless.
