It was bitterly cold with the wind, but we still headed in to town for snacks, face painting, music, and a little time at the park. But dang, it was cold!
Why do I love Annapolis so much for NYE? Kid-friendly schedules! The first round of fireworks went off at 7:30 and they were great! All the kiddos got to enjoy them before getting to bed at a reasonable hour.
Somehow all four kids slept in one bed. Somehow we got back today in very choppy seas without anyone actually getting sick! I had so much fun (did I mention it was cold?)! I loved the craziness of having four adults and four kids under the age of 7 on a 39' boat! I loved being one of only two boats in the entire mooring field. I loved having all our Christmas lights glowing while we were hanging out in the harbor. I loved having the hydronic heater humming away all night. I loved sharing one of our little family traditions with our very brave friends. :)
Happy New Year, everyone. Can't wait to see what 2014 brings!
