Back to Blogging

ok, let me try to get back to blogging!  I feel so delinquent.  Sorry Mom and Paul, the only two people who read this blog (I think).
 So we went on vacation last week.  We spent a lot of time on the beach.  It was lovely.  It was exhausting.  It was patience wearing.  It was a lot of effort.  It was HOT.  But it was vacation!  And we were all together.
 We rented a place in Ocean City NJ, our third time there.  It's a great spot, just a walk to the beach, park the car upon arrival and leave it all week.  We love it there.  The beach is clean, the town is family friendly, the atmosphere is relaxing.  It was a good trip, truly.  
 We were sad to see the ice cream shop that was 1/2 block away closed which meant we had to walk a few blocks (waaahhh, first-world-problems).  Otherwise the town seemed just as we left it, even some lifeguards were the same as last year- ooh lala.  
 On our last morning there a pod of 30 or so dolphins swam horizontal to the beach about 300 meters out from shore.  It was really cool to see that.  It was a peaceful morning on the beach, really a great top off of the vacation.
 And these little monkeys!  They had a good time too. With some hiccups, it was a great vacation
