We went on our first official family vacation this past week and it was a blast. I must first send a massive heartfelt thank you to Patti and Gene, their generosity and love is what made this trip possible! The Jersey shore has always held a special place in my heart and always will. We used to go when I was a kid with my mother’s side of the family and rent the better part of the International Hotel in Wildwood. There are far too many memories to write about in the space given but there are a few of you who will read this that know what I am talking about. Fast forward 20 years and here I was again at the shore. We weren’t in Wildwood but it was just as fun. We spent days at the beach and did awesome family dinners at night. There was card games, a trip to the casino a golf match and best of all more laughs and memories than one could imagine. We also ventured to Stone Harbor, Avalon, Atlantic City and on our last night Cape May. Tessa loved the beach and we loved watching her on it! Included will be a small collection from the trip, I did not shoot as much as I had planned since I was on vacation but I still think that I got some good stuff…..enjoy!
