Fun Crazy Busy Weekends~It's Over!

Well, our busy baseball weekends are over but we still have a few weekends left in August to enjoy!  We spent the rest of the weekends with friends and just us 4 doing what we love - hanging out and going down the shore!

One weekend we had a girls sleep over~Fun!!

With some pool time the next day :)

We still made time to work out~I am training for a half marathon (what was I thinking!)

Squeezed in some back to school shopping.....

Shore moments.....these are the best times!!

Making our workouts fun by bike riding, love riding here at Libert State Park!

Had to stop here at the 9/11 Memorial for all the New Jersey residents who lost their lives that day

Another day at the shore - first time I rode the swings, EVER!! 

It wasn't bad, LOL

Feeding geese while big brother works on his pitching

Another day at the shore with friends!

and they managed to get me on this thing....OMG

I was freaking out but trying to be brave for baby girl!

I was sick the rest of the day, ugh, this ride turned my stomach.

Now it was hubby's turn....but he likes this stuff!

Well.....this pretty much wraps up our summer.  No week long vacation, only weekend getaways for baseball.  I'm not complaining, we really enjoyed all weekends and finally got to visit Gatlinburg, TN even though it was only for a few days!

Hope you all had a summer to remember......these memories will last a lifetime!

Taking a Detour!!!!

So we are up & out of my dad's house by 7am.  It was hard and I tried to leave quickly, my poor baby girl even cried-I felt soooo bad for her.  Usually I'm the only one crying, but she really didn't want to leave :(  So,  we said goodbye-hope to be back soon (permanently) and we drove off!
About an hour out, we stopped for breakfast and had to practically make a run for it, LOL! There were like 20 buses full of kids!! By the time we got inside, the Dunkin Doughnuts line was like a mile long-ugh, there goes my coffee!  So we had no other choice but to eat burgers at Wendy's, everything else had super long lines that we didn't want to wait on!
We grabbed our burgers and left.  A little while later Laz asks me if I want to stop at Clearwater Aquarium.  At this point, I'm not 100% sure-I was sad about leaving & felt like just being home to calculate & come up with good, concrete reasons to move to Florida.  On the other hand, I really wasn't looking…

Weekend Trip to Niagara Falls, Canada~Part 2

Here is our 2nd day in Niagara Falls.  We started our morning with breakfast in the hotel restaurant.  After breakfast we headed over to Marineland.  This park was nothing spectacular, but it was a nice little trip.  We saw a dolphin show, saw several other animals, killer whales, fed Beluga whales and rode 1 or 2 rides.  Again, nothing spectacular but it was fun.  A lot of walking, and our favorite part was feeding the beluga whales - they were so cute!
The dolphin show was also fun!  Its been a long time since we've seen dolphins in action.

After all the walking, we were run down and hungry.  We headed back to the hotel to shower and prepare for our dinner at Massimmo's Italian restaurant.  The view was beautiful!  I enjoyed dinner, but hubby and baby girl didn't.  I like to try new things and unfortunately the other 2 don't - and there wasn't much on the menu that they liked.  Baby girl had Ceasar Salad, hubby had Minestrone soup and I had Linguine Carbonara.

Cooking Corner: Cookbook Challenge Day 1

Hi everyone!  I'm starting April with a little challenge for myself.  You are all welcome to join if you choose.  I have a rather large collection of recipes that I've never tried and since I started to declutter my life of things I don't need, this is one area that needs help. What do I need so many cookbooks and binders of recipes for? I don't know - it just takes up space and it's another thing for me to clean.  So, I decided that if I can't find good recipes that we love, there is no point in keeping the book or recipe.  I attempted this challenge a few years ago but never followed through.  This time, I intend to stick with it.
Here's my challenge:
Pick a book a month and try some recipes.
Decide what we like and what we don't.
If I have at least 15 recipes that we like, the book stays.  If not, I'll just copy the few recipes we liked and get rid of the book.
Not sure what I'll do with the book yet.  I'll figure it out at the end of th…
