On the boardwalk again.

Really what is a trip to the shore without lots of trips to the boardwalk?

PIZZA! I think I already told you we eat a lot on vacation!

I thought fudge was the perfect desert to eat after having pizza.

I can't imagine working that hard to make fudge! I bought the chocolate marshmallow and it tasted delicious!

Of a bicycle made for two...three....four... OR FIVE????

Daisy, Daisy,
Give me your answer do!
I'm half crazy,
All for the love of you!
It won't be a stylish marriage,
I can't afford a carriage
But you'll look sweet upon the seat
Of a bicycle made for two.

In this case our bicycle was a surrey made for five. Travis wasn't with us because he went to play tennis with Mum Mum and Poppy. The four of us decided to be tourist and rent a surrey to ride up and down the boardwalk.

This was so much fun! It was the PERFECT thing to do with an almost 2 year old! Zee has napped a lot of our vacation so she missed out on a lot of our fun (she slept the car ride down, three full days on the beach, at the zoo, on the boat, on the board walk, and many other places). This bike ride she was awake and had a BLAST! She kept yelling WHEE! Go FASTER!!!! Need to go faster! She was so much fun.
Look below she really thinks she is the one doing the driving.

People up and down the boardwalk pointed at our two very blond girls and waved saying look at the cute little girls having lots of fun. I took the picture below when I got out to buy a shirt (shopping on a bike ride makes it lots of fun for mommy).

Joggers ran past us like we were standing still!It was a beautiful day for a family bike ride.

Demi wanted to try out the middle seat so below is a pix of her sitting in the back with us.

Rob got out to buy a gift for his brother.

We will do this again! I recommend any one with a toddler giving this a try! We laughed and had a great time. I hope next time Travis is with us so he can join in the fun.

fun on the playground

The boys all went golfing so us girls went to the park down the road.

See Zee's tie dyed shirt? She was sleeping on the board walk yesterday and when she woke up she started pointing at tie dyed shirts and yelling HAPPY! It was so cute I insisted on getting her a "happy shirt".

Honestly, what is more fun than seeing Grandma (Mum Mum) go down the slide?

I am sure you can see by the huge smiles on my girls faces that they liked the time we spent at the park. This park is much larger than the parks near our house!

Sorry google readers!

I need to explain a tech (rather no tech) problem I have been having. As most of you know I do my blog post half a week to 1 week in advance (only once or twice a week and I schedule them to post automatically. When I am drafting up a post I often have to set the laptop down and go help a child (it seems that children want to eat, drink, diaper changes, get an education, and my help with things to keep them busy every other minute in this house). Now that I have 3 children I notice that when I leave a room to help one I am leaving 2 children a free minute to get into something. Zee and Demi both love to play with the computer ESPECIALLY when they see pictures of themselves on the computer. My blog almost always have pictures of the children. Because of that they often run to the laptop when I put it down so I can go help someone who needs me. When that happens they often get my blog to publish my post. I don't know if they are hitting the orange publish post button or a shortcut key but I do know they are both good at scrolling around clicking on buttons on all our computers. Today they did it again and I think this has happened 3 times in the last week so I thought I better explain the situation (don't want any of you to think I am using mind altering drugs). The Gilligan's Island post is one I have planned to share Oct 2. I just want to explain why my blog gets some ODD posts and some double posts. I know my children will outgrow this phase. To be honest, I rather have the tiny problems like posting unfinished blog posts than having to navigate my way along the teen years. I am not ready to have them grow up. I hope you all will be able to laugh next time you see a double post or a post with no writing. If you click on my blog you probably will never see this because I do quickly fix the problem once I see what one of the girls have done. I was told that Google Reader does an instant update so anyone who uses that for this blog sees my girls being (a bit cheeky) often. Thanks for understanding!!!! BTW google readers Fri. Sept 2 will be a rerun on this blog feel free to check out another channel.

lots of eating on vacation

After our boat ride we enjoyed watching a trolley go down the road.

The children were very hungry so we stopped at a nice restaurant to eat (we couldn't find any kid friendly places to eat). We were under dressed and a bit too tired to truly enjoy the meal. I think Rob will always remember it as spending $50 on 2 child size meals and a couple sodas. LOL!

Before bed Mum-mum and Poppy took us all out for ice-cream.

Thanks Mum mum and Poppy!
