4th of July in Ocean City, MD!

Yes, I know it's September, but here are the pictures from a VERY fun weekend with friends in Ocean City, MD over the July 4th holiday ... enjoy!

Ted on his vespa on the way to Dance class. Yes, I'm serious. But it gets better....

Billy on Michaela's vespa on his way to Dance class too ... with a pink helmut.

Taking the girls to the Minit Mart for breakfast.

Spies at a great fish taco place that I can't remember because it was 2 months ago! Sheesh.

Martha and Tim at said fish taco joint.

Hanging out with Tim, Spies and Martha at Coconuts.

Mary Paula cracking up the girls, as usual ... Erin, Michaela and Spies.

Tim and Billy

Taking a break for burgers

Back on the boat and headed to M.R. Ducks ... Billy dances, Marthat pouts over spilled beer, Tim lends a sympathetic hand. Of course, it was probably his beer that spilled on her.

Martha and Spies

Captain Teddy

Amy and Samantha with sparklers ... they did a much better job than Tommy Lee, don't you think? But like Jenni says, how hard ARE sparklers, anyway???

Samantha with her gangsta attire.

Aunt Crazy and Lindsey

CC at the Spies' house on Sunday morning.

Lindsey after Pepsi for breakfast.

Some of the modelling shots ... I think Samantha took this of CC.

I think Amy took this one of Samantha.

Back to the Lizas house ... Big Ted arrives.

Big Ted and his fan base ... the girls LOVE Papu.

Spies, Sloan and Billy at Seacrets.

Seacrets - one of the biggest restaurants I've ever seen! Something like 17 stages? It's insane. Good though!!

Sloan and Samantha

Tim, Ted, Karl and Billy

Lindsey and Spies

On the boat to M.R. Ducks

Ted and Spies back at the Lizas' house

View of the Lizas' deck from the dock. Ted and Michaela's house was like Bernie's place at Weekend at Bernies (1:45 seconds in, specifically - "...everybody parties from house to house, but they always end up here sooner or later!").

More Coconuts fun...

Amy took a picture of this for me ... it makes me laugh: an outdoor shower in the middle of a restaurant marked "Private."

Tim and Martha Spadafore

Aunt Crazy, Tim, Spies, Martha and Karl, back at M.R. Ducks for more fun.

MMMMMMMMMMMMM... nothing says "holiday weekend" like a bucket of Miller Lite.

Having a duck with Karl ... yes, we realize these probably aren't sanitary. Still, no swine flu, so we consider ourselves lucky!

Karl and Krista bid farewell. :(

On the drive back to Richmond, I stopped in Cape Charles (on the Eastern Shore) to check out the town. It was adorable! This museum had a lot of cool information from the time when the train used to travel all the way down the Eastern Shore and terminate in Cape Charles, before the construction of the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel.

Fisherman's Island, shot out the sunroof of the car over the Chesapeake Bay Bridge Tunnel. I have a lot of memories of crossing this bridge to go to my grandparents' house outside of Philadelphia every Thanksgiving.

I wasn't far from the Princess Anne Memorial Park, so I stopped to see Dad. Very nice weekend!! But was I TIRED the following week!!

beautiful pictures!! I love "boat people".... so relaxing; hopefully that's how I can retire :)
and SOOO glad the kiddos did better with the sparklers... of course I'm pretty sure they weren't hopped up on (how OLD does that sound??!) on illegal substances at the time. :)
