Let the summer fun begin!

Tuesday, June 8, 2010
Most of our summer will be spent beachside. Please don't hate me. Believe me, it's not all fun and games. Just imagine lugging all your beach gear almost each and every day of the summer. It gets tiring, but I always remind myself how lucky I am to be home with my girls and to live so close to the beach.

But on Sunday, we took a detour from the beach to play on the boardwalk at Asbury Park with my niece Colette. Before I go further, let me just say that if you haven't been to Asbury in years, you need to get yourself there. So much has changed. There are some absolutely terrific restaurants on the boardwalk, all with lovely outdoor seating...love that! And in town, there are unique boutique-type shops. However, on this particular day, we visited the spray ground, a water-park of sorts for children. You can keep the kids entertained all day for just $9 per child and $5 per adult. Once you pay, you are given wrist bands which allow you the option of exiting and re-entering as many times as you wish. You can pop back and forth between the beach and the spray ground with ease. Check it out.
After all the fun and games, we headed here for exactly what the sign states. A definite must for fresh lemonade!
