We had more time off so we headed to New Jersey and visited Carlos Bakery from the hit TV show "Cake Boss" which is now the #1 food show on cable!! They had big posters about it. Anyways the kids got to meet Buddy Valastro the cake boss and he was so so nice. He took his time with each one of them they all got hugs, fives, and photos, he gave them his autograph and asked what they like about the show. The girls had to tell him all the different cakes they love. It was a great time and the cannoli's were awesome! After that we headed to Ocean City on the south New Jersey. We spent the day on the beach and boogie boarded, built sand castles etc... The water was warm, with great waves. That evening we walked the pier, there are awesome shops there and so much to do. We took the kids to Wonderland amusement park on the pier they loved it. After that we headed to bulls island for our 3 day camping adventure. Next day we went to Philadelphia and saw the liberty bell and took a history tour and stood in the building and room where the declaration of independence and the articles of confederation were signed, it was very cool and the kids loved it especially Jennifer who loves the presidents and history. We enjoyed authentic Philly cheese steaks and headed to the children's museum there that was just plain MASSIVE. It was amazing and so beautiful. The kids had a wonderful time there. We ate a picnic lunch and rode their carousal. At camped we made smores, and skipped rocks in the river and went for a hike. The next day we went to Sesame Place which was a lot less crowded then when we went a few weeks ago. We got to go on all the rides we'd missed the previous trip and enjoy the water park more. It was hot and I got a little burned but everyone else was fine. We'd packed a picnic lunch to eat there and saw the Abby Cadabby show where my camera DIED on me! I didn't even get a shot off and it was the cutest show! After a long day at Sesame Place we packed up and headed for home on the 4 1/2 drive. It was a great trip and a much needed family time before Scott goes back to working and 4 hrs of classes almost every day until this December. So goodbye Summer!!! It's been fun!!!!
Here is a link to all the photos from the trip there are two folders of pics, just copy paste and then enjoy:
