The shore....and more.....

Time is going so fast, I can't believe it. Only three weeks until we move, and my house doesn't look ready at all.......oh well.

We had a lovely week celebrating the fourth of July. Last weekend at Penns Landing there was the "Taste of Philadelphia" that we attended. It was all wonderfu food, but Annalise's favorite part was the ice cream cone at the end. We also got to go to Smith Memorial Playground.
Kevin was off on Friday (the 3rd),which was really nice. I am sure he loved having a three day weekend because it is such a rare occurrence. We just hung out most of Friday and then that afternoon we had our last get together with the Nelsons, so sad :(
We had a good old american BBQ and swimming party, it was a nice relaxing evening.

On Saturday we went to the shore and met Kevins sister Amy there. We went to Long Branch Beach for the first time, and it was great! We usually go to Belmar, but I was looking for fireworks and fun things for Annalise to do, so it was perfect.
The fireworks were awesome, because they were shooting them off just a few feet from us, so we got to lay on the beach and watch them right above us. Annalise was really scared when they first started going off, the sound and how close they were, she was scared to death. But then I started naming all the colors of the fireworks and asked if she could help me, and for the rest of the show she was naming every color she could see, she was so cute. It was such a fun day, and I am going to miss not having the beach so close to us.

I'm glad you guys had such a fun Fourth of July! Packing is overrated, if you don't pack, you can't leave :)

I'm glad you left the packing behind and went and had fun. Packing will take over your life if you let it. No reason to let it until you absolutely have to. ;)

Annalise is a doll... truly! If you need any help packing or a babysitter while you pack please give me a call. We are all sad to see you go :-(
