{Vacation: Day One}

Ocean City-8

We arrived in Ocean City, New Jersey last night after a painless three hour car ride.  Both girls did so good in the car.  We decided to transport Angela in a car seat rather than her wheelchair for both her comfort and safety and she was totally thrilled.  As I've said before Angela is Madison biggest fan and Angela was totally head over heals that she got to sit so close to her big sister!

Today Adam and I got to have some alone time early this morning and went for a run.  Made perfect time, as we got to watch the most beautiful sun rise over the ocean scape -- totally made getting up at five in the morning worth it!  After our run Madison and I took a short bike ride and took a little preview of the ocean.  Our house is just a block away which is just perfect!

We all had lots of fun on the beach today as well!  Both girls are little fishes in the water.  We used Angela's neck float, and although we got lots of stares Angela totally loved body surfing on the waves!  Angela's temp control has been very wacky so she has not been able to tolerate being in the water very long, but at the same time she isn't doing well in the heat either -- so finding that happy medium is a bit of a challenge, but we're making it work.  Of course we have tons of experience with temperature instability from Gavin so it's nothing we can't figure out.

Tonight the plan is to hit the boardwalk and enjoy time as a family riding rides and enjoying the beautiful beach!
