BBQ with the neighbors

Our neighbors aren't just neighbors.  They are friends.  We had a nice BBQ today with them.  It was great. As always tons of food!  I probably gained 5 pounds today.

Elisabeth's swim meet

I don't like to go to swim meets when they are in the YMCA because those bleachers are a killer for the back.  Besides, with 95 degrees outside, it's hot as hell inside the Y and you can hardly breathe.
with that said, I was happy when Chrissy told me that there is a swim meet at the Toms River Country Club.  They do have lounges there, but you also can bring your own chair.
We went early so we could get a parking spot and a good seat.
Our little Elisabeth is a great swimmer and she even came into first place!

Pool time

Having Ava over was a nice surprise today.  We went to the pool and had a great time.  The water was once again perfect.  Shopping at Aldis after and a quick trip to Mc Donalds, because Ava loves chicken nuggets.  The day went quick.

Never a dull moment!

We were just done eating when Chrissy called that Dennis was involved in an accident...out of all places here in Holiday City. He was on the way to our house. As he was waiting (standing) by the stop sign on the corner of Jamaica Blvd. and Fort de France a car came down Jamaica and the woman coming from the other side of Fort de France which has also a stop sign decided to go and plowed into the guy that drove on Jamaica and he then hit my Dennis who was waiting at the stop sign.  Thanks God he wasn't hurt.  Unfortunately, the passenger of the car that got hit was taken away with the ambulance.  We are hoping that he will be fine.  The woman that caused all the commotion seemed to be OK too.

The pool

Luke and Elisabeth were here for a night.  Peter and I took them to the Fortune Buffet.  Luke ate frog legs.  Arrggh!

Back at the house we watched a couple of movies and then they slept like little angels on the air mattress. 
 In the morning we all had waffles for breakfast and off to the pool we went.  The water was awesome!

Keep selling those cookies

It was a wonderful event tonight at Veteran's Park! If you didn't go, you missed out on an awesome evening. The crowd was unbelievable and definitely enjoyed the Duprees.
The atmosphere of the event was great. The food stands all had yummy foods, from steak sandwiches, hamburger, fried oreos, pop corn, fried butterfly potatoes. funnel cakes to pop corn.
Peter is getting a pro at frying Oreo cookies.

Lucy the Elephant

What a great day we had!  We drove to Margate to see "Lucy the Elephant".  One less item on my bucket list!  It actually was pretty cool and interesting.  We even went inside and all the way on the top.  Great view!
All the beaches there are fee and so it the parking.  There are no meters.  Why do we have to pay here in Ocean County?
Any way, we had the GPS bring is home the long route over Black Horse Pike and then Rt. 50 which took us to Rt. 72 and then finally to Rt. 70.  It was a wonderful ride.  We ended the day with Dinner at 3Bs which definitely is my favorite eatery.

Oh deer!

The deer in our area are so precious.  Especially this time of the year when the babies are around.  This summer we did a a few less fawns than usual.  I just love to watch them right from our sun room.

July 4th 2016

Great time with family and friends. Chef Daniel's food off the grill was awesome and so was the rest from Mac & cheese to baked beans, and so many other items.
The kids had a great time in the water.  I first wanted to bring my bathing suit, but I am glad I didn't because the water was cold.
The evening ended with fireworks at the beach, but Peter and I left to go home, because we always worry about Kia being too home alone without going to the bathroom.
