Jersey Shore Part 1

This year for our vacation we rented a house in Ocean City, NJ.  The first half our trip we split the house with friends and the second half we spent it with Boyd's family. 

Here are some pics from the first half of our trip!

We were there over the 4th of July and we were able enjoy beautiful fireworks right on the beach.  We had been told that day that we had to secure a spot early.  So, being the New Yorkers that we were we got our spot early in the day and enjoy the whole day at the beach.  We made people stay, so that we didn't have to lose our spot.  By the time the fireworks started there were very few people near our spot on the beach.  I guess we we are just used to New York city crowds!

We had a blast.  It was so wonderful to be with such good friends.  We ate great food, played hard, tried to play games, and laughed into the late hours. We will have some fun, lasting memories from our trip.

Oh, Em! That looks like so much fun! We actually rented a beach house with my family over the 4th, only we were on the West Coast. It was great watching the fireworks over the water. And since it was a private beach, we didn't have to deal with any crowds. Glad you had such a great time with your friends and family.

Looks and sound like you had so much fun. I'm impressed with all the sand art work.
