Hello & Happy Monday!

I am returning from a long weekend in Bethany Beach, Delaware with my family – time sure flies when you are having fun! Charles & I were able to head down there Wednesday night after work for an extra long weekend at the beach {down the shore = NJ / at the beach = everywhere else} – it was sure nice to relax and soak up the sun! The weather was perfect each and every day so we spent some quality time at the beaches and in the pool.

I hope your 4th of July festivities were are much fun as ours!

Here are some photos from our weekend:



On the 4th we enjoyed watching the fireworks from all over the region from the comfort of our back porch – we were able to see a bunch of different area beaches set off their fireworks, it was a pretty sweet view.


We also played around with sparklers, which is a 4th of July necessity, if you ask me. sparkle firework fun

Jackson, however, was not a fan. He hates fireworks & spent most of the evening in the bathroom, with the water running, hiding behind the toilet.

Poor little guy.

The rest of our days included equal parts beach and pool time.

I have a newfound love for the pool noodles.

Aside from the beach & pool our group spent some time on the golf course, bike riding & exploring the bay on the kayaks. Needless to say, it was a pretty active weekend!


It was filled with lots of good food too – my mom makes the most amazing breakfast sandwiches & french toast ever.

Seriously, yum.

So all in all it was a fabulous weekend. I can’t believe the 4th of July has already come & gone. Feels like summer is going by way too fast {doesn’t it always?!}

Our next few weeks are filled with bridal showers, birthday parties & weddings so it’s going to be a busy month! It was nice to sit back & relax for a bit at the beach with my family.



What was the best part of your 4th of July weekend?

    I went to Bethany too! Traffic home to VA last night stunk. I love that beach though. Totally worth it, going back in August!

    Had an awesome weekend with the family – feel so bad for Jackson being so afraid of the firework noise – poor little guy!

        Thank you so much for getting back to me. I’ve been trying to zoom in to see what brand it is. All I can make out is Surf but not the second word on the pic with the dog in it. If you get a chance, let me know! Sorry to bother you and thanks again! Cute pup btw!

          Sure thing! I’ll have my parents check to see the name & if they can get any more information for you when they go back to DE next week! I’ll let you know!
