This weekend, our family joined about half of the state of New Jersey
and headed to the beach for the holiday weekend.
Although most people in New Jersey would say,
"We went down the shore."
I have always resisted using that ridiculous phrase.
To me it sounds so, well - Jersey.
Not that I don't love my state, because I do,
it's just I don't love anything to do with the stereotype of New Jersey.
Having said that, we ended up going to THE stereotypical area
of the entire Jersey Shore - Seaside...
well - we were in Seaside Park,
but it is just south of Seaside Heights where they film that "show".
Anyway, I thought I would share my weekend with you...
Luckily, we had a baseball game Saturday morning
so there wasn't much traffic on the Garden State Parkway by the time we drove down.
(Not the case on the way back yesterday - uggh!)
Here is a place we love going for lunch.
Check this out...
I bought it for the name, but it was pretty good!
And what were the kids thrilled to do in their down time?
We had to spend an evening on the famous Seaside Heights boardwalk.
Luckily Snooki and the gang are away destroying Italy these days...
Here is your typical Jersey Shore cliche.
We did get in some great beach time.
The air temperature was in the high 80's all weekend...
but the water was a very chilly 62!
My son was just thrilled to play out on the sandbar though!
Where did you spend Memorial Day Weekend?
