I would be so nice if every weekend lasted three days. Well…I took advantage of my three day weekend while the opportunity was available. This past weekend I was able to go to Ocean City New Jersey with a few friends for some relaxation and fireworks.
Here is something to think about. The question that someone asked me over the weekend was, why do we call this holiday the 4th of July? Why not Independence Day? We don’t call Christmas December 25th, do we? Strange.
Anyways, back to my mini vacation. Do you remember the dreams I wrote about the other day? Well, some of them came true! I was able to lay in the sun and get a little bit tanner. I was also able to read my book, I am already on chapter 21. Then what can beat laying on the beach with some amazing friends, soaking in some rays and diving in the waves. On Saturday night we went to the boardwalk to see the fireworks and do some people watching. It was great, they set off fireworks in the ocean (on a barge) and everyone gathers in the sand to watch. Blueberry pie and a few games of rook make a great ending to my mini vacation. Traffic wasn’t the greatest on the way home but we made the best of the trip with some PB&J, Amy our dying GPS, and a few brains so we would not get lost. Here are a few pictures of my trip…
Now it is back to homework and a five day week of work. Summer seems to be going by so fast!
