WHW {#54}: Beach Edition

Happy Wednesday! It's time to link up with Jessi and I and share What's Hap-"Pinning" with you!!
Today I wanted to share some of the events and photos from our week down the shore in OC New Jersey!

We made it to OC Sunday afternoon after having a doc appointment. We went down to the beach for a little bit that afternoon and then got ready to go out to dinner for my MIL's birthday.

Before that, though, one of my SIL's best friends was having their family reunion at a local outside bar, La Costa, so we went to meet up with them for a bit before dinner. We all partook in the Titos Lemonade drinks served in mason jars, listened to the live band, and had a great time!
We went to dinner at a BYOB place...so we obviously showed up with two coolers filled with beer and wine. (I love how my in-laws roll lol). We all had delicious dinners, and celebrated my MIL with some cake.
yes, that's cake on her nose, courtesy of my niece
We had a LOT of laughs this night :)

It only rained on Monday morning for a little while. The rest of the week was really nice and perfect beach weather. The mornings were filled with lots of laziness, coffee on the lower deck, shopping, and some mornings going out for breakfast.
The afternoons were spent on the beach. We had pizza taste tests with the family (Manco&Manco versus Preps). Afternoon iced coffees from the boardwalk.
MG and I made the Baked Queso Tacos for the group which were a HUGE hit (and so was the leftover taco filling in the next days)! 
And the sunsets...
My one niece decided to use her phone projector to project a movie on the side of the shore house, so one night we sat on the top deck and watched My Big Fat Greek Wedding 2, outside!
Some nights had funnel cakes...delicious gourmet-like funnel cakes.
And some nights involved a trip to the arcade for some air hockey and skee-ball!

And every day and night was filled with kid shenanigans that kept us all laughing:
meet baby squash, in a wheel chair....lol
and baby squash at the beach! 
All in all, the days went by way too fast, as always. Hoping to get back there the last weekend before school starts for one last hurrah with everyone!

Now it's your turn to share what's hap-"pinning" with you, below!
