4th of July in Jersey!

Josh had to work on the 4th but got off early, making it our first evening together (minus Sundays) that we've had all summer.  Maddie and I loved every minute of it.  We spent the day swimming and avoiding the Oceanfest crowds.  I read that ever year hundreds of thousands of people come to this event that is held literally right outside our window.  And let me tell you - I don't think they were exaggerating.  That night we ate apples from Rocky Mountain chocolate factory (mostly me on this one) and watched the fireworks that were lit off
 from the beach.  The firework show was amazing and Maddie loved it.
(excuse the random lady in the last picture.. for some reason it's the only picture I took of the fireworks - and do you even see any fireworks?).
