The Boardwalk + This Week's Menu

Monday, September 17, 2018

We spent yesterday afternoon at the boardwalk. I did what any sane adult human would do and enforced a mandatory kitchen dance party before we left to "Under the Boardwalk" by The Drifters. My little girlfriends have moves, let me tell ya!

We had no idea that there was an air show scheduled, and we could've done without the announcers voice booming over the boardwalk speakers for two hours -- however, we have never been to an air show and it was pretty cool to see. First order of business was, of course, to order armfuls of terrible-for-you food including but not limited to crab fries, cotton candy, gelato, and diet coke. We walked up and down the boardwalk with my brother and his family, who we met there, and then ducked into the amusement park area. We rode on a few rides, and I was so proud of C, because she bravely hopped on the giant pirate ship ride with me (picture evidence below!). H's favorite was definitely the carousel, and my favorite was (and is always) the ferris wheel. I'm all about perspective, both figuratively and literally. ;) There's nothing quite like taking in the Atlantic Ocean from high up in the sky with your favorite people. 

We let the kids bury their little feet in the sand for a few minutes, but we weren't prepared for a beach day so we mostly stuck to the boardwalk. It was, honestly, the perfect official end to summer. Even though we've had a season chock-full of summer fun, it just didn't feel complete until yesterday. 

What did you do this weekend? I hope it treated you well!

On to this week's menu:

Monday - Breakfast for dinner (eggs, tater tots and Morningstar "sausage")

Tuesday - Chicken patty sandwiches with rosemary fries

Wednesday - Tacos with rice and corn

Thursday - Pasta with sausage, spinach, and tomatoes (thanks, Ashley, for the recipe!)

Friday - Leftovers

Saturday - Out


  1. what a beautiful day to be outside!! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

    1. It really was! I just wanted to drink it in. It looks like you had a fun weekend too!

  2. That beach is super gorgeous - always fun for the kids too when there is a boardwalk / pier - Caspar loves towns like that - we all do! Is there little games on there? Ours have hook a duck / shooting / throwing balls at things etc, as well as bumper cars etc - I guess yours are the same? And of course having the 'bad for you' food makes it even more fun! J xx

    1. Yes, it's so much fun, isn't it?! We try to go every summer. They have a couple of amusement areas with rides and games. C went on the big pirate ship ride with me and I was SO proud of her bravery! xo
