Hanover House, Ship Bottom, LBI, NJ Aug. 2015 Harrison Vacay

For the first hour of our 14 hour road trip, Rosie fell asleep. It was the best hour ever! jk, kinda.
 First road stop three hours later! Jimmy was rocking out to some jams.
 The five of us. Marc was cleaning the windows while the gas was pumping.
 Roadtrip day two pit stop.
 We made it to Poppop's house!
 


 Playing Code Names. A great game Tommy brought. 

 Clams, Kit, and Poppop!
 Rosie and Tessa!


 Get in line for a dollar!








 The kids made a lot of shell necklaces and on crab necklace
 The cute meister!
 impromptu dance parties are the best kinds...it all started with Robyn- Call Your Girlfriend.

 and a little Sweet Caroline- Reaching Out!




 Next up a special surprise from Jacob A. and Tessa H.
 The surprise included cookies and a note asking if they would be flower girls and ring bearers. 
 There were lots of yesses! 








 Happy People!

 Mini Golf! Jimmy loved the first two holes!
 My two boys!

 This golf game is easy...especially tandem golf with daddy!
 Sweet Agatha! She did really great and on another trip with Papa Jeph she got 5 holes in one!


 Look at the pain in Marc's face and the joy in Isla's face. It makes it all worth it!
 That was the final straw for Marc's back and now he can't stand up straight. :(

 Isla got the hang of it!
 Tessa with the big girls!

 Rosie was only partially interested and would drop her ball in the hole and then call it. 
 You can't play golf and not get ice cream! 

 It was a HOLE lot of fun!

It was a great vacation for the family. Rosie is determined to remind us that we said we would fly next time. Fingers crossed! I loved playing games in the evenings, learning how to play Russian Bank, and hanging out with my nieces and nephews during the day. They are a great bunch of kids. Lovely, lovely time! More photos to come...I think!
