Fun in the sun!

Hi friends,

My husband and I went to the beach this past weekend with our friends, my brother and sister-in-law and our adorable little niece and nephews. We had such a fun time and I managed to take some cute pics that I wanted to share them with you. We usually go to Strathmere, NJ because there is no boardwalk, therefore it's not as busy - which I like (I don't care for large crowds) and we've been going there for years, it's our favorite spot. 
Hope you enjoy these few pictures, I'm no photographer but I'm pretty obsessed with my little niece and nephews so most of the pictures are of them, however, my nephew Ben was not having it and hid anytime he saw my phone haha! 

Haley, Ben and Brad, I tried to take a picture of them as soon as they got there (Ben refused to wear sandals, he has to wear his Spider Man sneakers at all time) I love his scrunchy face!! Love our little Haley, shes so sweet and I just love playing dress up with her. Brad is the youngest one, look how cool he is with his shades, he's a year old and is already cooler than anyone I know! Their uncle Joe and dad made them a nice little pool :) 

With my bestie!!! I love my boo!! :)

They love their uncle Joe!! :)

Joe hadn't done his push ups that morning, so he decided to do a few on the beach haha :)

She's such a cutie!! 

He's so ridiculously cute!!!!!! 

Look at those little cuties! They had such a fun day, can't wait for more fun this weekend! :)

I love my love bug!! <3

Later on that night, we all decided to go back to our place and grill some sweet and spicy wings, corn and other veggies. We had a bonfire going as well to roast some marshmallows. We had a ton of fun and I'm looking forward to seeing everyone again this weekend. To me, this is what life is all about, being surrounded my family and friends, making memories, laughing until your belly hurts and just enjoying being with people that bring meaning to your life. I wish my family lived closer, but I'm lucky enough to have my husband's family around and some really great friends. 

Here is the recipe for my sweet and spicy grilled wings if you haven't seen it yet!
