We are having a great time in sunny New Jersey...my old stomping grounds.
The crowded beaches...
...the boardwalk with all of my favorite treats like chocolate covered salt water paddles and the world's best caramel corn. So many wonderful memories of growing up going 'to the shore'!
Thanks to friends of my parents, we are able to spend a week here allowing our children to get a taste of some of my Northern heritage.
We're enjoying hanging out on the beach,
drying off after catching a few waves,
digging holes and then...
...sitting in them,
strolling on the beach at dusk,
keeping little one out of the water (at dusk) so she doesn't end up as shark food,
but mostly just being thankful for this time away with family, and of course, wishing my Dad was here with us.
More to come...
