I lasted until approximately 10:17 this morning before I gave up on my “no coffee this week” resolution, and I am not even one bit ashamed about it. Sometimes you simply NEED caffeine after an amazing 4-day weekend like the one I just spent in Avalon : )
Early Friday morning we headed to the Cape May Zoo while the boys golfed! This is the 13th best zoo in the country – how have I never been until now?! Not to mention, FREE! The kids had an awesome time, and I was pretty pleased to see the giraffes because duh. Also, how cute is this kindergartener!?
Late Friday evening we finally crossed off one of my biggest summer bucket list items – no shower happy hour at the Golden Inn! It’s hard to motivate ourselves to get down there (yes, it’s only like 10 blocks) when we’ve got a gorgeous bar and pool in our own backyard… but we did it!
Saturday my parents arrived in the morning, we visited the Delaney clan in OCNJ for the afternoon to celebrate Kelly’s birthday, and ended the night with a DELICIOUS dinner at Quahogs followed by drinks at the new Watering Hull in Stone Harbor! Before my mom and dad left on Sunday we even managed to squeeze in an ocean boat ride with mimosas : )
The rest of Sunday was spent golfing (I didn’t do terribly, surprisingly) and enjoying appetizers by the pool with all the aunts and uncles. How adorable are these caprese bites? We beached it all day Monday and Tim and I had a dinner & dessert date before we left – we had to get one last fix of Nemo’s pizza and Buccaneer’s ice cream! I cannot WAIT to be back in October but unfortunately most of our favorite places will be closed.
