sweet cheeks adores her cousin so much. i crack up watching her emulate every little thing her cousin does. at one point during our vacation i overheard her cousin say to sweet cheeks, "sometimes i need a little pri-va-cy, that means alone time." sweet cheeks proceeded to follow her around the living room some more. she just can't take a hint!
the barnegat light... ahh... yes, a trip in itself. as my memory recalled, the lighthouse was located near barnegat bay. a quick drive from where we were staying, say i don't know maybe 5 minutes. my sister was in the same thought that i was. memories of barnegat were just flooding back to the both of us while we were up there, as if we had just left it. sadly, we were so wrong about this one! it took us like a day, ok maybe 35 minutes, to get to the light house. little did we remember having to drive to the very end of long beach island to reach it. we were all happy once we arrived. it was worth the drive because we really do have memories of this place. i loved seeing sweet cheeks and her cousins get the chance to visit a place that my sister and i had been to many times as kids. no, i did not let myself or my daughter climb to the top. sweet cheek's cousins were brave enough to do it though.
we survived the trip despite the damaged daddy. we survived the trip despite the one full day of the pukes for poor sweet cheeks.
i was so happy to be home though!
