whoa guys, whoa. if you've made it this far... congrats. that was a lot of pictures. and! there are so many more! but, at the risk of dragging my jersey shore trip into parts 1, 2, 3, 10... then one post it goes.
so, after nyc, we headed down to the shore where my some of my family lives now, and spent our days walking cape may, swimming in my parent's pool, eating wawa hoagies, and laying on the stone harbor beaches. the weather was perfect nearly every day (except one HUGE thunderstorm and downfall of rain that flooded stone harbor's streets in a matter of minutes!) and we had such a nice time. there were a lot of us though, so figuring out where to be and food and naps and all of that was no easy task, but having all of my sisters in one place made it all worth it... it's unusual these days! and see that group picture?! we have multiplied. crazy...
and i have to mention that nathaniel and jordan were home working while we were there. they had an opportunity to get a bunch of hours in and then they'll take a vacation with us in august... so instead of taking off work for two chunks of time, they're waiting till august. plus, they'll see some of the same people then too. (you see, i have to come clean on their absence lest you think, "stepmom! she didn't want them there!")
oh! and happy 4th!
