The Jersey Shore Is Open...

and my heart is filled with so much joy!
Don't you just love this time of year, so many fun things to do and see.
The weather was perfect here this past weekend, 
lot's of blue skies and sunshine and the temperatures were perfect.
We spent Sunday with my youngest son Mike
and his sweet girlfriend Alisa.
I love them so much and I really enjoy the time we spend with them.
After a perfect meal at Moonstruck Restaurant in Asbury Park,
we went for paddle boat rides at Wesley Lake,
right across the street from Moonstruck.
Here's the hubs and I, in our black swan, Nina.
Mike and Alisa choose Wesley, the dragon.
If you have never done this, do it...it's so much fun.
The lake was smooth as silk and the sun was saying good bye to the day.
The perfect time to be out on the water, enjoying the setting sun.
You can see Ocean Grove  in the background,
another super sweet, old sea side community.
There were cupcakes, ice cream and chocolates after dinner.

And every visit to Asbury Park,
always includes a super fun walk along the boardwalk.
The repairs are done and most of the shops were open.

It is a beautiful thing!!
