4th Of July Beach Fun


I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July weekend! Ours was perfect and relaxing. I always cherish an extra long weekend with the family and having Marc home makes the world of differences. We spent practically the whole weekend at the beach which was awesome, because once the baby arrives it’s probably going to be a bit hard to get there in the beginning.

I figured I would do a quick recap of our weekend for you:

Friday night Marc and I had a little date night at Harvest on Greenwich Avenue. We have been there plenty of times, but we love the food and atmosphere. My mom was kind enough to watch Ava for us so we could get out for a bit.


We split a bunch of small plates rather then ordering entrees. We had my favorite brussel sprout salad, lamb meatballs which I wasn’t a fan of, grilled calamari, mussels, and a chopped salad which was delicious.


Marc and I enjoyed our alone time, it was much needed :)

These are some post dinner pics when my belly was at its fullest :)


Saturday we spent the morning at the beach and in the afternoon headed to a friends pool.

It was a beautiful day and I’m glad we didn’t really spend a second inside!

Sunday was pretty much a repeat of Saturday and we headed to the beach again just for the morning.


I have so much fun watching and playing with Ava. It’s amazing how happy kids are when they play with sand toys.

Sunday afternoon we BBQ’d with my family and kept it low key!

On the 4th of July we took Cooper & Ava to the field first thing in the morning before it got hot to run around and play before we headed to Byram Shore Beach to hang out.


My parents joined us at the beach which was lovely. It’s always nice to have extra people looking out for Ava and playing with her. I was actually able to sit in a beach chair and relax for a bit!! AWESOME.


Around 330pm my family came over for a BBQ.

It was a great evening and we enjoyed their company.


everyone loves grandma!


My mom did all the cooking which was pretty special and made the day so much easier for Marc and myself.

We even had a little ice cream cake for dessert.


Think my dad is excited for this baby boy to arrive?? He picked out the cake.

Ava didn’t nap on the 4th so she was out cold by 7pm.


Those are tired eyes!

Marc and I spent the night on the couch relaxing and watching TV. It seems like we watch TV once a week so it was nice to kick our feet up and chill.

Now it’s back to the work week and I’m looking forward to it. This weekend was amazing and I loved being outside but I can’t wait to have a schedule to follow to pass the time until our baby boy arrives!

What did you do for the 4th of July?

Did you spend the weekend outside?
