Today was our first day off since we came home from North Carolina, September 23rd! It was such a great day! My step-father, Bruce, signed up for a fishing tournament in Ocean City, NJ and we told him that if it was a nice day we would come down and watch him fish. It was a BEAUTIFUL day!!! We left the house around 8:30 am and got there by 10:00 am. The company sponsoring the tournament was Colonial Electric and all their customers are welcome to bring family and friends. They really do it right! There was so much food! Dunkin Donuts and soft pretzels for the morning, a Pig Roast (a whole pig in a roaster!) and all the fixings, hot dogs, hamburgers, soda, water, EVERYTHING for lunch! It was free, too! We didn't just have to watch Bruce fish, either. We fished right along with him! Matt, Sarah and Daniel had a great time trying to catch something! We didn't catch anything, but the guy next to us caught three sand sharks! It was fun touching and checking them out! I am, however, a terrible mom. It is October 20th and the farthest thing from my mind was getting sunburn. Daniel and I look like lobsters! We are so red! I feel terrible about Daniel. He doesn't seem to be bothered by it. I bathed him and lathered him up in aloe lotion. Hopefully, he'll be good by tomorrow!
After the tournament we decided to walk the boards. It turns out that several of the stores participate in a Trick-or-Treat program two weekends before Halloween. Even though the kids had no costumes on, they were allowed to trick-or-treat with the other kids. They really made a haul! They got some cute toys and candy. Daniel, my chocoholic, thought this was great!!! We then had dinner at Primo's Pizza (our favorite pizza place on the boards) and called it a day! Everyone went to bed like a charm! They were so worn out! I, too, am tired and think I'll head off to bed early!
