We went to the Jersey Shore for our 2011 vacation. We let Jake take a friend this year so the boys had a great time swimming and otherwise. For the most part, we stuck to the beach and the pool, but we did do a couple of extra things yesterday (our last full day of vacation). In the morning we went to the boardwalk wherein we did a little shopping; the kids played some video games; and we visited the Wildwood Insectarium, which was pretty cool. Later that afternoon, we went to the Cape May Winery. Their wines were pretty good--we brought home two bottles.
Brian and I got some well-deserved R&R. We got in a lot of reading and relaxation. I busted my ass at work and the house the weeks prior to our vacation so that I wouldn't have a bunch of stuff hanging over my head while we were away and that definitely paid off.
