The kids went away to stay with my in-laws for a few days as their cousin Sophia was visiting. They came back Friday afternoon. After that, the busy weekend began in earnest!
Friday Night Dinner Party
- Dinner with neighbors down the street. That was low key and fun.
A Hot Saturday
- Picked up my niece Sophia from in-laws and brought her back to the house.
- Kids hung out all day.
- I had a long distance bike ride in my mind despite the high heat and humidity. Ended up riding 33 miles round trip down to Laurita Winery in New Egypt. Woohoo, 33 miles! I used to have free time to ride up to 50 miles on a good day, but I’ll take what I can get now. I’m happy to report that I was in good shape without any pain afterwards.
- After I got back, I cleaned myself up, and the five of us drove to Bradley Beach for dinner at Fins, then mini golf on the boardwalk, and finally ice cream for the kids from Dairy Queen.
We were up early and spent a good part of the day at Point Pleasant Beach from 10 AM – 2 PM. We even surprisingly ran into some friends maybe 30 feet away. In the late afternoon, we dropped off my niece back to my in-laws, then met up with some friends at Havana Central in Edison for dinner.
