Nothing like spending a long weekend at the beach, especially when the trip only takes a few hours.
We didn’t even think for a second to let the rainy ride there keep our spirits down. No way.
Last weekend, we beached it up at the Delaware shore, and it was awesome. We had an absolute blast, rockin’ it out on the Jolly Trolly, jumpin’ waves, watchin’ the seagulls and kites, and playin’ with the beach-dogs in the early mornings.
This time, we played Travel Bingo: Delaware Beaches.
- Travel Bingo: Delaware Beaches — I included places that I remembered from the last time I had spent time in Rehoboth and Dewey, like the big Dolles sign, a high-rise hotel, Grotto’s Pizza, the boardwalk, a beach umbrella, and a bridge.
However, what I realized was that the game was best suited for actually being there—not driving there. So even though Owen and Maddy played for a good chunk of time (and Cora just put stickers all over her board and circled the pictures—and good circle-making practice it was!), I re-vamped the game when I returned home.

I switched out some of the beach-specific places to make it actually suit the trip. I added a flower (there were millions), a church (because we saw tons!), a farm (we saw tons times ten), a tractor, a cow, and construction. I kept several of the beach-specific places because as we got closer to the shore, we did see a bunch of Grotto’s Restaurants, hotels, and water.
A long weekend in a great vacation spot, with super-fun family, lots of laughs, lots of great food, and (yikes!) no internet service—what’s not to love? It was a true vay-cay in my book.
