feeling crabby

This weekend was the local crab fest!  I guess those aren't uncommon in Maryland.
All of my meat eating friends were all over it... I go for pure entertainment.
We enjoyed live music, yummy food {the local bakery was even there, so I did not go hungry}, two bushels of crabs for everyone excluding Norah and me & lots of water to wash down the Old Bay & salt.
The prices on the bushels were unbeatable.  Brad got half the amount at a restaurant for twice as much as what they paid at the festival.  He would be eating crab every weekend if we could find a festival with those prices!

But, the weather was beautiful & we were surrounded by wonderful friends!  I love our weekend adventures!

On Sunday we all went down to the pier after church.  As the boys were crabbing up on the dock, us girls stayed in the shade under the pier & played in the sand and water.  It was Norah's first trip to the ocean.  She loved the sound of the waves, but when we tried to snap a quick cell phone pic of her dipping her toes in the water for the first time we got a lot of tears in return:

There will be many more trips to the beach and lots of opportunities for her to get used to the water.

    As always we love reading your blog, but it makes us miss you more and more. I'm so glad you are all settled in and enjoying all Maryland has to offer. We are definitely going to try and make it to Maryland sometime this fall so we can meet Norah in person.
