Roll Out The Ribbons

Last night we visited Long Branch, here at the Jersey Shore,
 
where the beaches are spectacular. 
 
Pictured here is The Promenade of Hope.
A half mile stretch of railing along the boardwalk in Long Branch. 
The multicolored ribbons,
displaying a special hand written message,
are a beautiful way to honor all of those who have been touched by cancer. 
 
Roll Out The Ribbons is a Cancer Awareness campaign
sponsored by Monmouth Medical Center.
You can read all about the amazing work they are doing here!
 
Last night was movie night, by the beach.
The heat wave has lifted some and we were able to attend.
 
Can you see me there in my purple chair, with my purple shirt?
We watched The Sandlot...
The movie was so good and so funny,
I had not seen it in years.
 
Do you see the boy sitting in front of me, blue chair, orange shirt?
He was a riot and so scared of the beast that lived
on the other side of the sandlot.
His facial expressions and antics were almost better then the movie!
 
The hubs went also, of course, he's such a sport.
 
We had a great night under the stars!!
 
Did any of you do something special and fun this weekend??
I am hoping we can get out a little more,
now that the temperatures are a little cooler.
 
I don't know why all the good stuff is scheduled for summer.
What about Spring and Fall,
when you can "play" outside and not melt!!

  3. I'm glad it has cooled down some. Love your purple chair!

    That's an awesome promenade, and for such a good cause!

    I spent some time out in the heat yesterday chasing birds for photos. I got a few good photos, but mostly I just got sweaty and bug bitten! But Larry and I just laughed about my antics in chasing the birdies. :-)

  9. I probably spent all of one hour today in the heat doing what I had to do -- 90s and 95% humidity is no fun. It's supposed to cool down some tomorrow.

    Looks like fun -- but you and Chuck know how to have fun. :)

  11. I thought I left a post, not sure what happened. What a fun movie night. I am so glad the heat wave has moved on. It is neat seeing the ribbons at the beach and for such a great charity. I picked you right out of the movie crowd, Debbie. Seeing the purple chair and top helped. Have a great evening.

  20. What a very fun activity. I think it is awesome to be able to see a movie outdoors. We still have a movie drive-in here that we go to at least once during the summer.
    The pictures are always awesome.
    Blessings!
