i am heading into a four-day weekend as of, oh, maybe an hour from now. it's wet and stormy outside and i've got my (un)trusty flip-flops on and a crappy five-dollar umbrella to get me home, but i don't care. i'm so happy to have four whole days to spend with my hubster and my Bubster. plus quality time with some family members, a round of mini-golf with some great friends and lots of lounging around.
and—see the pictures? the Seaside Heights boardwalk is open! it's weird to see that pier not crammed with its questionably safe thrill rides, but hey—it's a long way from what it was in late October. also rebuilt and ready for summer: my beloved Lavallette boardwalk! gotta make a trip down there before Boo arrives.anyway, all good things. happy summer kick-off weekend, people! (i'm sure i will have plenty to gab about next week.)
