We had a blast down at the New Jersey shore! It has been years since me, my aunts, cousins, and even brother have been able to get together let alone go on vacation. The only two that were missing were Corntey and Justin. I was so happy to spend time with everyone, as it seems that out busy lives keep us from doing this more often. My girlfriends came down for my birthday and my Uncle Bill, Aunt Kathy, and cousin Zoot even made it up for a few days from Annapolis. I took Nicholas to the beach several times while down, but unfortunately I didn't get to capture the actual event on camera. It was actually a mess! I'm not sure if I will take him again until he can walk, or at least sit up (he can now!!). Sand in the face was not fun. So, for most of the week we stayed at the "rock beach'"out front of my mom's house down there. If we got hot we had the baby pool and the bay at our feet! That was all that we needed! We did walk down to the beach every day though, and Nicholas really did enjoy watching the water. He didn't even cry when I dipped his feet in the ocean (I cried, it was cold!). I miss everyone already and hope that people take us up on the offer to come hang out at our lake beaches up here some time this summer. I put together a slide show. Unfortunately, it would only allow a certain amount of photos, we had plenty thanks to our photographer Grammy!
