The last 2 days have been a blur. I don’t even know where to begin. That project I was working on is over, I cleaned like a mad woman, The Husband came home from his business trip, we packed, and then it was off to the beach!
Every year we spend a week at the Jersey shore. This is my 17th year visiting Seaside Heights and, honestly, there is nothing I look forward to more. The beach, the boardwalk, the mini-golf, the rides (oh! the rides! — more on that later) it’s my favorite vacation. We literally park the car and don’t touch it for a week.
However, I can’t stay away from the internet. Well, I can, I just don’t want to. I like you guys too much. :) However, it took me two days to get the tethering on my Droid to work. Hence my short hiatus.
Anyway, I’m here and I want to stay somewhat accountable and sharing my favorite week of the year.
Here are few pictures from our arrival and first day.
Look at my BABY! What the heck happened? (Click here to see how he looked last year – I was wearing him for Pete’s Sake!)
My other BABY!
Looking at the ocean with Grandma.
It’s Grandma’s Birthday!
I LOVE this shot!
And this one.
Dad’s with strollers melt my heart.
Little Bean was wired but oh so fascinated by all the lights.
We did go one a few rides and, well, I think I’m done with them. I never thought I’d be anti-ride but the older I get the less fun they become. Why is that?
This one spun me into insanity. I was just ecstatic I survived.
Today (Sunday) we are all about the Beach! I already went for my run and made breakfast. I’m going to try and strike the balance between vacation indulgence and healthy choices. I’ll post a few Food Journals along they way and be back with more beach memories.
Side note: If I was a truly evil Mom I’d share the video of the 7 year old jamming out to Nicki Minaj in the car but you’ll have to form your own mental picture of that one. ;)
