4th of July - Ocean City Style!


Beachin It!

So, Ocean City has an awesome event on July 4th which is a HUGE bike parade... everyone decorates their bikes, neighbors bring their chairs to their front yard, driveways, etc then at the end is food, etc

We dressed in our red, white and blue clothes and our beach cruisers are red and blue so we were all set!

Then we had friends who host a party at their house for after the bike parade and they set up a "bike" wash - SO FUN!

On the bike ride back to our house, this happened!  Summer wears these kiddos out! :)

Then we had a wardrobe change and went to our neighbors Bob and Barbara's house for a BBQ

Then we headed to the beach for fireworks!

 Nothing like sitting on the beach and watching the fireworks!

 It was blueberry season and a little town called Hammonton which is only 30 min from us is known as the blueberry capital of the world!  And... one of the young kids that come to our church.... his dad owns one of the largest blueberry farms so he invited us to come and pick blueberries!

The packing area!

I think we ate 5 million pounds while we were out there.... there is NOTHING like a blueberry right off the branch... they were DELICIOUS!

 Then we went to their adorable downtown area and shopped at all of the very cute boutiques and ate some amazing Mexican Food!

We had an amazing 1st Fourth of July here in New Jersey!
