We stopped for lunch at Cracker Barrel on the way-a road trip must. Jake decided to get hot chocolate...in summer! Hahaha!
(I uploaded these pictures and started this post way back when we went to the beach...which was the Wednesday before Labor Day...Better late than never right? And it goes with out saying that I am not rereading or editing...)
He also used his debit card for the first time and bought a slinky. Bringing back the childhood memories!
Jake did some school on the way. He missed two days of school the week of his birthday because he was sick and Aaron is taking the last week of September off so we had to get some work done on the trip there and back!
Aunt Sheila approved!
First picture on the beach!!!
And a couple of us-ies (think selfies but us)!
I took a break after a little while to take a few pictures of Nee and Jake catching waves (and because my eyes were burning from the combination of salt water and sunscreen). Aunt Sheila was on shark duty...and there were sharks. We got called out by the lifeguard because he saw at least two breach the water.
I am no scientist, but I can tell you exactly why there has been so many shark attacks this summer: BECAUSE THE FISH ARE EVERY WHERE!!! I have never been to the beach and seen so many schools of fish, so LARGE, so close. Their ripples were EVERY where around us ALL THE TIME....and then you would see a bunch of them jump out of the water ten feet away...and there is a good chance they were jumping to get away from a shark. It was pretty creepy!!!
