That's what we call it here. We don't "go to the beach" in NJ... we "go down the shore". After a fairly lousy birthday (mine) we decided that we needed to hit the reset button so the next day we went down the shore.
The kids were super excited since it's the first time we've gone this year.
We went to Ocean City which is where we pretty much always end up. We were gonna get pizza on the boardwalk but a restaurant with ocean views ended up calling our names!
The kids were good, the weather was gorgeous, it wasn't super crowded... a much better way to spend the day.
The girls did a few rides after dinner.
We ended the night on the carousel so Jack could ride. This was his official first ride (if you don't count sitting on the bench on the carousel).
It was a good night.
