even though the boardwalk is almost right in our backyard we don't go that often because while it's a nice place and all, it's kind of a racket too. fun? meh. crowded and overpriced? yep. i know, i'm tons of fun.
on this day though the weather was practically perfect with cool breezes, warm sunshine and it wasn't too crowded so everything fell well within my established parameters.
after lunch we bought a wristband for annelise to ride rides (even though she was only willing to ride a couple of them) and scott bought two ride tickets. i wasn't in the riding mood so i took pictures. annelise ran into a friend of hers from school (she's in fourth grade and apparently hung. the. moon) so they had fun riding the same two rides over and over while scott and i sat in the shade and watched because we're so fun.
seafood, relaxing by the water, bay breezes, rides, funnel cake, being together, all in all it was a fun afternoon!
