A Week at the Beach

We are wrapping up our wonderful week long stay

at the Jersey Shore.

I don’t remember ever having such a hot week here in July.

Nor do I remember the water being this warm so early in the season!

The water has been 74 degrees each day

making it perfect for swimming…

and lots and lots of boogie boarding!

(And the occasional wipe-out!)

We spent time at the boardwalk,

Wasted lots of money trying to win ridiculous prizes

and devoured more ice cream that I thought was humanly possible.

We watched a house being torn down,

(Very exciting for my son!)

Rode our bikes in the annual 4th of July parade,

Went crabbing,

And even managed to squeeze in

some upside-down DS playing!

It has been a relaxing, fun filled week

spent with family.

We haven’t decided if we are heading home later this morning

or after a few more hours on the beach.

It is a little cloudy and very windy at the moment

although the temperatures are expected to reach around 100 again!

I am a little behind getting back to comments on my blog this week

but I will try my best to “visit” as soon as I can!

I hope you are all enjoying your weekend

and are keeping cool where you are!

How did you spend your week?

    Oh, what fun. I went to the Jersey shore when I was thirteen with my best friend's family. Her grandmother lived there. I remember the boardwalk and eating the best pizza and deli sandwiches I had ever had.
