A weekend trip to the beach

This past weekend had Tyler and I packing up the car and hitting the road to Ocean City, MD. The real reason for the trip was to help my friend with some wedding planning. Her wedding is this summer, and I am honored to be one of her bridesmaids. We also thought it would be fun to spend some time with our friends though over a three day weekend. Finally, the dogs have never been to the beach, so we thought that would be an adventure as well.

We got there at lunch time on Saturday, and while I went to get my dress for the wedding, Tyler made the first trip to the beach. It was a super cold weekend, so we didn't go again so I could see that day. We did get up early and head to the beach again on Sunday morning. We were secretly hoping that this would expend enough energy that the dogs would sleep while we all sat around watching the Ravens in the playoffs on Sunday. Well, it didn't but it was a good try.

Anyway, the dogs loved the beach, but did not love the water. My friend's dog had no problem jumping right in, even though the temperature outside was 32 degrees. Our little pups stayed in the sand. Well, here are some pictures from the trip!

Here are the dogs waiting patiently for Tyler to throw a tennis ball

And here was my friend's dog George, jumping right on in to the frigid water. He was having a great time, and I don't think wanted to go home.

I tried to convince our dogs that it was a good idea to get in the water. In hindsight, it was probably good that they didn't listen to me since it was so cold.

They did love running on the beach and playing though. Here is Jack after his victory in the ball chase.

Here's Tyler playing with all of the dogs.

Jack gets the ball again! For a dog with such short little legs, he is awful fast!

And then we went home where three tired pups got baths because they all thought it was a good idea to roll in the sand! Now my car needs a bath too! They were so tuckered out, it was fantastic!

Thanks to our friends Brittany and Tig for their wonderful hospitality this past weeked. We had such a great time just hanging out and watching football, and the dogs had an even better time than we did I think. They were both sound asleep on the couch the minute we got home. And thanks to Brittany for the wonderful pictures! We can't wait to get down there again, just hope that the next time will be a little bit warmer!
