Wildwood 2009

Matt, Nicole, the girls, Bryan, and Rose all flew in from out west for the yearly Boyd excursion to the shore in good old Wildwood, NJ. We spend 4 nights down in what we have declared as our condo (which is very nice - top floor and one block off the beach). We spent three full days down there, and the pictures are divided up accordingly.
Day 1

Addy was very excited about her "wag" as she calls it.

Addy and Grandpa relaxing on the patio.

A family pic looking out at the beach.

Here's a better look at what the patio looks like.

A look at the kitchen/living area. Very big. The condo has 4 bedrooms and 4 baths as well.

Tuesday night we went up to Ocean City. Addison, we found out, is not a big fan of rides that go up.
She is, however, a fan of cars.
Good luck pulling her out of this one when the ride's over.

"Or-see! Or-see!"
Which is Addy for "Horse-y! Horse-y!"
I look thrilled, I know.

Later, we headed back down to Wildwood, along the scenic coastal road, and ate on the roof at Stewart's. Good food, great atmosphere.

This is the view from our patio of the neon signs of some of the old motels down the beachfront in Wildwood Crest.

Day 2

Mommy and Addy at the beach.

Addison was not liking the water too much.

Grandpa playing skyball with the girls.

Addison really got into the ladderball balls.
No one else was allowed to play.

Up on the boardwalk again, Addy had her first driving lesson.

This is advertised as the world's tallest High Striker game. I never seem to have a problem with it. Aaron generally gets it. Bryan and Matt struggle.

See? I win.

Addy, who's daddy is the strongest?

"Eh-fant?" which would be 'elephant'.
She wasn't sure about these either, especially when they took off.

Addy and Mommy again, this time doing some pretend driving.

This is one of my favorite spots in Wildwood - the boccie courts. We've become big boccie fans in recent years. There are two courts there. One is open to the public, and the other always has these old men listening to old italian music, playing until the wee hours of the morning. They are fun to watch.

Aaron got me a nice boccie set a few years ago.
Here Bryan takes a turn.

Aaron tosses.

Rose wasn't half-bad.

What form! What grace!

Amanda's turn.
Aaron, you're so silly.

Group shot!

Afterwards we took a walk down the renovated fishing pier.
Our shadows made for a nice picture against the water.
Good call, Amanda.
Day 3

Addy and Kacey got packed into the wagon with the rest of the beach stuff.

This picture was too cute to pass up.
Addison loooves her cousin Kacey.

Bryan, Rose, and Amanda looking for the perfect wave.

By the third day, Addison was brave enough to take her sandals off and play in the sand.

Family pictiure back at the condo.

Addy and Amanda
"Watch the tram car please!"

We headed off on our own for a bit, to the end of the waterpark on Morey's Pier.
This might be my favorite picture of the trip.

This one is a little hazy, but it's cute nonetheless.

Riding the boats with her cousins.
Ring the bell, Addy!

Addison was ok on this little ferris wheel, probably because she spotted Mommy with the camera. She's getting more brave.

Another family picture, this one on the boardwalk.

Bryan and Addy after some ice cream.
We always stop for ice cream on the way home at Richmann's Dairy.
Good stuff.
