Last week we went to Long Beach Island, NJ (aka: LBI) with my mother, brother, sister in law and my nieces.
My sister in law's family own a home there and they were generous enough to lend it to us all for almost a full week.
home stretch to paradise
surf city is a quaint spot on the north end of the island
there is no mistaking these two little beach babies are related...and boy, do they adore each other!
i barely let my niece lily out of my arms the whole week. i simply cannot get enough of her!
perfect lunch spots
and stunning vistas are all de rigueur for LBI
although he will be 18 in a few short weeks, my son still loves entertaining his cousins
i just want to inhale her deliciousness!
those curls! the cuteness! this little one makes my heart want to explode!
soft white sandy beaches
dunes and weathered wood
we wined, dined, chatted and laughed
and took late night ice cream runs
Because that what living at the beach is all about.:
