A Mini Vacation Alone!
We had originally planned to take the family on a camping trip, but schedules conflicted. Our teens told Clint and I to go on a weekend by ourselves and volunteered to watch the younger children, run the household, and manage the farm. Clint and I thought for about five seconds and said "See ya!" We left on Thurdsay, the 19th and came back on Sunday, the 22nd. Clint reserved us a suite with a jacuzzi and a fireplace. We went to the Ocean City, MD Boardwalk and toured the area eating at the century old family run restaurants and seeing the famous sites. Then we went to Assateague State Park, MD and drove on the OSV (over sand vehicle) beach. After that, we went to Chincoteague and Assateague, VA and drove on the OSV beach there. The best part of the trip was coming home to see our children lined up to give us hugs and kisses! Then we walked into the house to find it sparkling clean!
