We spent our first 4th of July "down the shore" and on the boardwalk with friends. The Jersey Shore was actually better than I expected! I knew the company would be awesome (we do love our friends!), but when you've grown up near "the beach" your entire life and then you go to "the shore" for the first time, you wonderful how different/similar things will actually be. Guess what peeps--a beach is a shore and a shore is a beach. Whew! Glad it worked ok. ;)
We laid out, played soccer in the sand, dared to dip our toes in the freezing cold Atlantic Ocean, ate some amazing fresh crab legs and shrimp, danced, and celebrated America's birthday with traditional fireworks. We had a blast! *pun intended*
Happy birthday, America. We are proud to live in the land of the free and the home of the brave.
