It was a great thing. Madeline's cough was starting to improve and just the smell of salt air seems to heal all wounds. This place is such a comfort for all of us. I worked here every summer for 6 years. My grandmother lived here. My parents bought a house here when I was 14. I got married here. This is home to me. This is where I feel the greatest.
Madeline is starting to get the same feelings. She loves the beach and charges it when she can. The weather was cold though. It was in the 50's this whole week and VERY windy. We brought our winter coats and hit the boardwalk for some mid- week pictures and salt air.
|Yes, she was dancing....she LOVES the beach!|
We shopped in some of the 130 name brand OUTLET stores here. I got some great bargains at Gap and Gymboree for M at outlet prices. Not to mention my great deals at Ann Taylor, Gap and Old Navy. We ate some greasy food. The famous Grotto's Pizza that uses sharp white cheddar on their pizzas...is a family favorite.
We ended tonight with some coloring at the house with YaYa. Madeline sported her new candy cane antlers
that she got from Old Navy. They make me laugh!
Hope everyone had a good week! Back home we go to greet daddy tomorrow!
