It has been WAY too long since I have last written!
I have been so busy; I have hardly had time to breathe! Even as I write this, I am thinking of many others things that still need to be done, but ah, such is life. We have come home from our yearly visit to the Jersey Shore and the pictures are amazing! We vacationed near Ocean City, NJ this year again and it has proven to be a good spot for our over-sized family to spend some down time together.
If anyone knows me they know that I love the beach, but ONLY in the early am and pm. During the day, I can take it or leave it. NOT a fan of the hot sun or sand or standing at the shoreline watching the kids for hours, roasting in the hot sun. (Although I will do it). I love watching my kids have fun, but 3 hrs is all I can take each sunny day. Then, its a fast retreat to the house to make lunches, or clean or just hang out with whoever is in the house. It is a mixture of relax time with the every day hubbub of every day life. My other very favorite time is later night family time with the family. It is so much fun to spend time with the nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles and the in laws. We have a lot of game time, food and lots of talks. It is the stuff memories are made of.
