The past weekend was jammed packed with fun!
Friday we headed up to NJ and got there in time to see Jeffrey play baseball. They lost but I did get to see my nephew pitch and play the outfield. He did a great job! After baseball we headed home to cook the goodies for Saturday.
Saturday we were up and at em. Kathy and Emily went down to the lake to grab our spot - I think that was around 6am! The boys got ready around 7:30am and headed down to the fishing contest. Henry won for being the youngest fisherman - I was so proud ;)
After that we got our area all set up and helped the kids with the sandcastle contest. I think Em won for most creative and Jack's group won too. After that it was time for the DoDa parade. The kids had decorated Henry's trike bike so he was all ready to go. Em and her friend pushed him. After about 3 pushes around the circle, Henry decided he was hungry and abandoned his bike.
The rest of the afternoon was filled with lake fun and food! That night we all get settled for the fireworks. Henry LOVED them! He will even tell you how they work - BAM BAM! I think he sat on everybody's lap watching them.
The night did not end there for Henry. He attended his first sleep over - yes a sleep over. It was only upstairs in his cousins room but he loved it. Jack slept on the top bunk and Henry was on the bottom. Bless my Sister in law because she put Henry to bed both Saturday and Sunday night up there. She got to experience "Ants in his pants" all to herself.
Sunday we hit up Dinosaur park and the Polar Cub. The Polar Cub is a landmark in Readington or maybe Whitehouse Station. In the summer you have to go there to get ice cream. The soft serve is out of this world and it is sooooooo good on a hot day. Henry loved it but of course he dropped his cone so he ended up eating from everyone else.
After that we said good bye and tried to get a picture of the kids. Not very easy.
All is all it was a great trip and we were sad to leave, but the countdown is on now until we are headed South for VACATION!!!!!!!!
