Down the Shore

It's hard to believe that it's been about a month and a half since our vacation in New Jersey. The summer is zooming by! Before summer is completely over, I thought I would share a few photos of our Ocean City trip with you. Here are some highlights:

Rooftop reading, with a beautiful view...

Beach time!

Dining at some of our favorite Ocean City restaurants...

Walking around downtown...

Andrew and I were in charge of dinner on the 4th of July. We grilled hamburgers and hot dogs and served them with potato salad, fruit, and chips. For dessert I made a simple no-bake cheesecake and decorated it with strawberries and blueberries. To make the occasion a little more festive, I decorated the table in red, white, and blue. After dinner, we headed to the beach and enjoyed several fireworks shows that we could see along the shoreline.

While we were in Ocean City, some of the famous Philadelphia Mummers performed on the boardwalk. As you can see, they wear very elaborate costumes...and their music and dance routines are equally elaborate!

My mother-in-law arranged for all of us to have professional photos taken on the beach. She hired Teresa from Kindred Hearts Photography to take our photos. The photo session was a lot of fun and the photos came out beautifully. Here are two of my favorites:

We had a great time while we were "down the shore"!
