Say It's Not So....Summer Can't Be Ending This Weekend!

You've heard me say it before, but I find it incredibly hard to get off the beach and into the "back to school" frame of mind. Tonight, Rex and I are headed out to meet London and Maddie's teachers on Back to School Night at Mendham Township Elementary School, but I'm still dreaming about our family beach vacation in Bay Head, New Jersey....

The whole month of August meant relaxing days when London and Maddie slept late (now their alarm goes off at 7:30am), strolled to Mueller's on Bridge Avenue to pick up crumb buns for breakfast, and came back to paint and sell seashells until lunchtime. Rex and I worked all morning in our comfy beach house office, then joined the girls for a late lunch and headed out to the beach for sand, surf, sun and fun.

The folks who run Morey's Piers -- the largest amusement piers in the world, located on the boardwalk in Wildwood, New Jersey -- seem to agree that the summer's not over until it's over. If you're lucky enough to have a free weekend to get to the beach, or better yet the ability to take a spontaneous Monday off, Morey's Piers offers over 100 exciting amusement park rides and Wildwood attractions, including two large beachfront waterparks, kiddie rides and roller coasters. September is a great time to avoid the long theme park lines and enjoy a classic seaside amusement park with your family. Rex and the girls and I are headed to the beach in Bay Head for the next bunch of weekends, but you can visit the Morey's Piers web site for weekly specials and to find hotels and motels and plan your visit to Wildwood.
