Day 22: Clothing

Day 22: Clothing
 
I actually went shopping today. I actually bought myself some new clothes. I needed some new farm clothes. So I am not sure if they are worthy of sharing in this post.  I also got the boys new socks. We've had a poor selection of socks these days and now that it is warmer and they are in shorts and you can see their socks when they are wearing their sneakers it meant we needed new socks pronto.
 
So as a reward for the boys being so good on our shopping trip I rewarded them with a trip to the beach!
 

It was our first time to Belmar beach since hurricane Sandy. It has been closed since the storm hit in October.  I had heard that they opened up some new playgrounds and people were allowed on the beach today.  I couldn't get there fast enough.
 
 
I can't tell you how much joy I have to see this playground.
 


 
The boys played chicken at the ocean's edge.


The ocean won and the boys clothes were soaked.






 
I am so glad to have our favorite playground back.  It does feel like some of the towns are recovering here, but some are still so badly damaged.  Belmar still has a way to go, but the beach and boardwalk are open!
 
We are really looking forward to getting back to normal around here.

I hope recovery keeps going a fast pace so your beach becomes what it once was. Love the last photo the best :)

That's a nice treat! Now for the big question. How did you keep them out of the ocean? My kids at that age would have been right in and riding waves.

I don't know about Andee's kids but my kids were so happy to finally be able to play on the beach playground they didn't even notice the ocean. Plus it was cold on the beach. Andee - we played at 15th Ave after walking on the BOARDWALK from 15th to 4th and back!!!! Glad you all had some "local" beach time too.
