a week at the beach!

Well, another blogging hiatus from the barefoot ballerina has come and gone.  I've decided that I become a very lazy blogger during the summer because pretty much all of my responsibilities fly out the window once school is over.  Oops.  

Anyway, I have a good excuse this time!  I just got back from a week in Ocean City, Maryland with Austin and his family.  We had an absolute blast!!  I love love love Austin's family.  They are awesome. 

Here's a little sneak peek of our adventures while we were there.  I put all of my pics on facebook in case you're interested in getting the full experience...

While we were there, we definitely spent plenty of time at the beach.  The weather wasn't perfect (a little cloudy and some rain here and there), but it was kind of nice to just sit on the beach without sweating my face off.  

When we weren't at the beach, we were usually eating haha.  We ate lots and lots of seafood (duh), and everything was delicious!  My favorite part of the food was "all you can eat crabs".  We did that twice, and both times we sat for hours crackin' crabs and drinking cold beer.  Perfect!

We also did some other activities besides eating and beaching.  OC has a really fun boardwalk with cute shops, good spots to grab a snack, and crazy rides.  Austin's aunt also organized a catamaran ride for all of us that was also a cool experience.  I'm not the best on a boat (thanks for the seasick gene, Jimbo), but the views were great!

As you can see, we had a fabulous trip.  I can't wait to see all of the family again at our wedding in June!!


  1. The only time I've ever spent in Maryland was at the airport during a layover. (It's a pretty nice airport, for the record.) Ocean City looks so cool and it seems like y'all had a fantastic time! I guess I need to make plans to get myself to the east coast!

    1. The east coast is very fun! My favorite part was the food...hopefully that doesn't make me sound like a fatty haha.
