and on the final day the sun came out…

Despite appearances, it was there. The mist hung around for a few hours in the morning but it was definitely the best day weather-wise. The boys wanted to get their fishing on so we headed to the point in Stone Harbor where Matt has had great success before to set up shop. No luck for them but at least they got to go! The kids played and dug and sea shell collected while Steph and I read and it was amazing. 

One more burger for me before we had to head home! 

the day we visited a star wars set and more!

Ok that’s a lot to unpack. The weather had taken a turn on Saturday so we planned on heading to the Cape May Zoo for something to do…. Until it started pouring! We hightailed it out of there and then went to a local brewery for a little…. When the rain cleared we decided a beach visit was needed only to stumble upon quite the high dunes…. Like really high and then a sudden drop. Very Tatooine-esque! I’ve never seen anything like it!

first beach weekend of the year!

And naturally it rained. Like every day until it was time to go home. We pulled the kids out of school and headed to North Wildwood, New Jersey on Friday…. And of course after we unpacked I had to go get a burger! The boardwalk was deserted and the entire place was like a big misty scene…. The Fitzs arrived then and we headed back to the actual beach (which wow is that a deep beach!) this time and of course ice cream! With bicycles! A solid first day!

our mother’s day…

Was a day where I was sooo very spoiled by Matt. Which is saying something since he always spoils. I don’t deserve it I truly don’t. I was woken up to the smell of my Grammy’s thin pancakes which is an amazing way to be woken up and if you know, you know…. Flowers and champagne and cards oh my! Matt also got me a new necklace that says I love you to the moon and back which is something I always say to the kids. And to which Letty has always responded with “I love you to the heart and back” which has always been adorable. I went for a run and was treated to a bubble bath before David’s final flag football game. A game in which he got four touchdowns and of course I got none of them on video….  Then we all got changed and headed out to dinner with my family where we got to celebrate my mama. Lots of Italian food later I looked at least thirty weeks pregnant but so very happy and loved. 

life lately…

Oh all the things! Secrets of Dumbledore with friends…another field trip that I was unable to go on but still got photos sent to me… baseball and family who supports David… a sleepover with cousins! More baseball and watching soccer and friend swims and friend lunches! Working at the middle school and feeling lucky to see Letty and her friends! A fish caught and a new school ID… a yard sale and lemonade stand… football and another soccer game…. Cats and a good report card ice cream run with Nonna… have I mentioned baseball? Tis the season! Freshly planted palms and flowers and hair cuts for the boys! It is quite possibly the busiest time of year after Christmas time but it is full of fun things!
