I didn't take as many pictures for days 3 & 4 so I am combining them into one post.
Monday morning we woke up to snow flurries, I was hoping it wouldn't accumulate and it didn't. After the 7 days of snow we had in January I don't want anymore for a long long time. There were flurries until around 10 then it was just a misty rain the rest of the day.
Dave, Joe (his brother) and I headed to the AFB to get in a workout. I won't lie I am over snow but it was pretty to watch it falling while I was walking on the treadmill.
When we got home all the boys had a bit of a nerf war going on.
The boys all went over to see Daves mom, step dad, and his sisters. They ended up being over there most of the afternoon. Jess and I headed out to get some lunch and do some shopping. When she gave me the option for lunch to get Chipotle I jumped on it because I love it and Dave hates it therefore I never get it.
Her sister ended up joining us and we shopped the entire afternoon.
We got home, made a delicious drink and had a delicious dinner Joe had cooked.
After dinner we watched the weirdest movie, The Snowman, I do not recommend this movie it was hard to follow the story.
The next morning, our final day in Jersey, we woke up and headed to the gym. I got to love on Lincoln a little bit before we left. He is a huge lab but such a baby.
We all got ready after working out and headed out for the day. First stop was Shake Shack, it was absolutely delicious and lived up to the hype. I would LOVE for them to bring us one to Charleston.
After lunch we headed to Atlantic City for some shopping, gambling and exploring. Our first stop was the Bass Pro Shop, it was HUGE, way better than the one we have in Myrtle Beach.
We walked over to Caesars Palace which was literally right across the street to gamble a little bit.
Trying to get a group pic on the escalator haha
The boys just love our group selfies but one day they will love back and be glad Jess and I make them take pictures.
We headed to the boardwalk before we left and ended up walking for probably an hour. The weather wasn't great but it wasn't bad either.
We wanted to ride the ferris wheel but unfortunately all the rides are still closed for the winter. They said it would probably be a few weeks before they open them back up.
We walked 10K steps just in Atlantic City. I am thankful for all the walking we did this vacation because we ate far from healthy so it all kind of evened out. I didn't gain a single lb, I wasn't stressing over it but it is always nice to come back and be right where you were when you left.
We headed back to their house, had dinner and just hung out the rest of the evening. We packed the car and headed to sleep. The next morning we woke up at 430 and headed home. We got home Wednesday about 5PM, it was a loooooong day.
We are already trying to figure out when we can go again. Jess and I already have plans to explore Amish country in PA, we just need Dave to get a job offer and then we can finalize the plans. I think getting to stay with them this time really helped me to build a deeper relationship with them and I am so thankful for that. They are super similar to Dave and I which is a plus, we had a GREAT time with them.
