We just recently returned from the 3rd major event in the past two months. It has been busy, but lots of fun filled with memories to behold. Thankfully, the boys are both at great ages to be able to pick up & go. Last week the boys, myself & john's parents (John could not get off work) took a trip down to Atlantic City (area), NJ. This is where John's mom grew up. We stayed with her parents, attended John's cousin's high school graduation and of course hit the ocean as many times as we could. John's grandparents live on Ventnor Ave (2 blocks from the ocean). If any of you are familiar with Monopoly, yes, it is THAT Ventnor Ave. All the roads around them coorespond to the Monopoly board. The house where the inventor of Monopoly lives is not too far from them. Also, the real estate is just amazing!!! John's grandparents' neighbors had their nice little home up for sale, asking $600,000!!!! It was not all that much bigger than our home!!! Yikes!! It was a blessing we were even able to make the trip because Drew had gotten pretty sick the week before. But the Lord was good and healed him quickly to be ok for the trip. I even got a whole hour to myself on the beach one afternoon when both the boys were napping! I could definitely use one of these by our house!!! There is something soothing about the ocean waves lapping up on the shore.


This is the result of our (really, my) digging for about 2 hours.
That and my sunburned back!!! It started out as a bridge, then became a tunnel and then drew decided it would be a good seat for him to watch the surfers from.
