This holiday weekend, at the very last minute, we decided to skip town and head down to the beach. The big boys weren’t around (Jacob was out with his friends and Justin was at his dad’s house), so it was just Tony, me, and our 3 little ones. Since we anticipated some serious traffic, we thought it would be nice (and easier) if we took the ferry. Our littles haven’t been on a boat of that size before, so this was an extra treat for them. Seriously, they couldn’t have been more thrilled! Once we arrived at the beach, we spent the entire evening barefoot, eating ice cream, and building sandcastles. We watched the sun set from our blanket and stuck around for the amazing fireworks show. (The beach is absolutely beautiful at night). And the next day, we did it all over again (minus the fireworks). All in all, it was wonderful.
