Saturday night, I got cut early from work. I mean, who’s sitting at a bar when they can be down the shore enjoying the holiday weekend? Needless to say, it was slow. Joe and I headed down around 11:00 Saturday night, cutting out any and all traffic! This gave us 2 full days at his parent’s beach house with his family.
Sunday’s weather called for scattered showers so Joe and I ended up taking his nephew to the boardwalk instead of heading down to the beach (after a little bit of yoga- see below!). At least there were places to run for cover in case of a downpour (hello, arcades!?) but it ended up being beautiful. We missed a beach day, but we had a lot of fun riding rides, playing at the arcade, and downing a slushy the size of our faces. I haven’t done that in so long! We finished the day with pizza at Pete & Elda’s. It’s seriously the best pizza I’ve ever had – super thin and crispy cracker bread style! We enjoyed 7 pepper wings & some Leinenkugels as well. I enjoyed my food while the boys ignored me for the Yankee game. Typical. We made a quick stop at the liquor store on the way home so we could enjoy a few more brews before bed.
Monday was spent running 4 miles in 80 degree weather, tanning on the beach (while the boys played in the water), and making lobster rolls & grilling for dinner. Perfect!
I’ll skip any more descriptions and just leave you with scenes from Memorial Day weekend from my iPhone. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have seen some already!
