Our week at the beach

Was filled with:
Beautiful days
Fun in the sand
Fun in the water(This bird later pooed on me)
More sand fun
Fun playing put-put
Fun on the amusement rides

Fun on the boardwalk

Fun at the Brass Balls

Basically, we had lots of FUN!!
We spent most of our days laying on the beach and playing in the ocean. Tink was determined that she could body board like the big kids. And she did. Even though she can barely swim she isn't afraid of being in the ocean.
Our evenings were spent walking the boardwalk, checking out the little shops and eating in the outdoor restaurants that line the 3 mile long boardwalk. Another favorite is playing put-put golf in the evenings.
The dogs even enjoyed the vacation. They were easy to travel with (especially after a tranquilizer for each dog) and were really well behaved the entire week.
Vacationing with my SIL and her boyfriend was interesting. We got to spend time with Court and got to know Nick. We actually spent less time with them than I thought we would. They did their own thing, mostly shopping, while we spent most of our time on the beach. Hubbs' older brother and his family showed up the day before we left and stayed a few blocks away, so we got to spend a fun day on the beach with my BIL and niece on Fri.
I have to say the vacation was a success and we had a great time. Although next year I think we should vacation alone. Much less stress.

The picture with the bird (and your comment about what it did later) cracks me up! Glad you had fun.

I'm just me... said...

A - I didn't realize the bird was in the pic until later. I apparently had a bullseye on me that week. Not once, but twice I got pooed on!

Note to self: Listen to Hubbs, don't feed the birds. There is a limit to the amount of pb&j a bird can eat before something has to come out the other end.
