We have an ongoing joke around here: "Every day is Saturday." Ah, unemployment. So when every day is Saturday, and a holiday weekend comes up, whatever do you do? We went down to a friend's mother's house down the shore, where there were three other couples, two babies, a few random people, and four cats. The original intention was to drive down Friday, but the traffic was going to be so bad we would have had to leave at 7am. At 9:30 on Thursday night, TG suggests going down that night. As bad as that prospect seemed, it was the lesser of two evils, so we went.

We basically spent two days poolside, relaxing and getting sunburn. For myself, I was happy to get out of the house for a while and really kick off the summer. There was talk of going to the beach both days, but noone seemed overly interested in actually GOING. It is a bit of a hassle to get all the stuff together and go. At night we roamed the boardwalk. I had a Kohr's Orange-Vanilla swirl ice cream, which I haven't had in years, and it was amazing. Pizza at the Sawmill was another flashback for me, and it was great as well. The sunset both nights was so beautiful, and a nice contrast to the craziness around the boardwalk, with the rides and people and lights. I wish I had a camera, but TG has an iPhone, so all these photos are from there. Thanks hun! :)

Kohr's, and a nice sunset.
