Throwback Thursday – Our Backyard in New Jersey

Some of my favorite memories are the simplest. So simple that I rarely photograph them. It’s easy to remember to pull our your camera when Old Faithful is erupting. Unfortunately, it’s not so easy to remember to capture the ordinary moments you’ll want to remember in 50 years. Moments like when your kids share stories and laughter.  Our 8 days in South New Jersey were simple days and, coincidently, are some of my favorite memories.

We really didn’t do much those 8 days and I don’t have many photos. Brent worked a lot. The boys and I took up jogging together. (That lasted a week.) Thing 2 got a new nickname, “Little Boy Long Long Legs”, when he kept pulling his shorts up high. I worked out under the pines. We explored the lake by paddleboat. We stumbled upon a delicious restaurant, George’s Place, in Cape May. We played in the water slides at the campground. We took sunset walks.

There weren’t any grand vistas or historic monuments but there was love and laughter and being together with my favorite people. That was enough.

Love and Laughter,

About Jenn

I'm Jenn and I'm so happy you stopped by our little corner of the web. My favorite moments are cuddling with my boys, listening to the purrs of my cat, and sipping warm cups of tea. The smell of orange blossoms conjures up delightful memories of childhood even though I grew up in Indiana hundreds of miles from citrus groves. I love animals and when I'm stressed I dream of owning a goat farm. I love art, road trips, books, and food. Vintage clothes make me ridiculously happy. Red lipstick is my friend.
