2: Clint graduated from college!!!!!!!!!!!
3: So proud of my little mumpy!
4: Annual Family Softball Game 2011 | Ocean County Park
5: It was so unbearably hot...we only got through a few innings. Then Michael lit a fire in the backyard when we got home to help "cool off". | Timmy flew back from California to play in the game this year! And Michael turned 39....Holy Crap!!
6: Michael and Mackenzie both did awesome in their last games of the season. Mackenzie also had her piano recital which was very impressive.
7: At the end of June, Michael and I took our annual bishing adventure on Shark River and caught more keepers than any other year. Gianni also turned 11!!!
8: All four of us went out on Shark River one day and also caught quite a few keepers. Mackenzie and Michael both took turns driving the boat.
9: We went shark tooth hunting and found a handful of teeth dating back millions of years. VERY COOL!! | Crabbing off the dock in Bay Head on Bridge Ave. Good spot!!
10: Every July, we park at the marina on Princeton Ave and watch the fireworks. We sit on the roof of the car as they burst in the sky so close to us. | How many people does it take to teach a little boy how to fish??
11: WHALES!!!! A group of humpback whales was spotted up and down the coast for a few days. We spotted 2 swimming right off the beach. Dylan was able to get out there with them in the kayak. They were huge! Of course they didn't breech when I had my camera.
14: We wonwWe | We won again in the sandcastle contest this year with a family of dolphins coming up out of the water. They were so big! How do we top that next year?
15: Gianni came in first place in the swim event at the Junior Lifeguard Tournament!!! He swam so fast it was amazing!! Everyone did a great job!
16: Kayaking in the boat basin. We caught a needle fish that bit Michael's finger so bad right at the tip...bled for awhile!! Little Michael went on the Pirate Adventures Ship!!!
17: Michael lost a tooth at the beach house. It was so tiny!
19: Mackenzie and Michael worked hard at learning how to surf this summer. Michael rode a wave all the way into the beach on the 8 foot Hobie longboard. Everyone on the beach was amazed!!
