Beach Week 2010

We went on vacation to Ocean City, Maryland, last week. Everyone had a great time.

Evelyn & Brandon On the Beach

It was Brandon's first ever trip to the beach. He was a little apprehensive about all of that sand until he found out that he could get a reaction from people if he ate some.

Evelyn is an old pro on the beach scene. She has perfected running toward and then away from the ocean.

Evy has also improved her mini golf game since last year. She had five holes-in-one in a single round of golf (six if you include the last hole that keeps your ball).

We also visited the boardwalk, collected seashells and watched the ice cream truck from the balcony. More of our beach week fun is on Flickr.

Strawberry Fields

Not content with the selection at the grocery store, Evelyn put her boots on and trudged through the fields in search of the perfect strawberry. Here it is:
The Perfect Strawberry

She found it at Trax Farms. They have pick-your-own strawberries right now and Evy thought that sounded like fun.

She ended up with a whole quart of perfect strawberries.

Evy's Quart

Add that to the five pounds that Steph picked and you have a whole lot of perishable fruit. So far we've had plain strawberries, strawberries in cereal, strawberry milkshakes and homemade strawberry popsicles. We've even given some away.

Any suggestions on what to do with the last two pounds?
