Ah yes, it is that time of year for me! What, you ask? When I start my countdown until our favorite vacation in Wildwood, NJ. I cannot share enough how this is our favorite time of year. From staying at the LeVoyageur Motel, to eating at Duffer’s Ice Cream Parlor, and walking the Boardwalk each day(and usually twice a day!), it is the best vacation for my family.
We often get criticized about our choice for a beach vacation. As I mentioned in my preparing a beachcombing bag post, some of those comments can be pretty cruel. I love my in-laws dearly, and I especially enjoy spending time with them. They work just as hard as my husband does, so it is really great to see them relax. And do stuff for them. And it is especially heartwarming that they enjoy spending time with us. Here they are beachcombing with us!
So back to the countdown.
40 Days And Counting
What makes Wildwood so special to us? Just 5 uninterrupted days with the family. No responsibilities for work, no housework, no laundry(we save that for when we get home!), and no cooking. We have several different places we love to eat at, and each one has a signature dish that draws us back year after year.
Even though it is 40 days and counting, I am already starting to make lists. Believe it or not, I am already thinking about packing for vacation. If you click on the link, you can see my 5 best tips for making packing a snap. It all starts with lists. I use my Nook HD+ to help with that! I have the InkPad and OutOfMilk apps on my device. I use the InkPad app to create a secure document that has all our medical information, blood types, medications. I also have another page for information on our GPS, EZ-Pass, and how to access our messages from another phone. Those were a big help when we went on our trip to Wisconsin last year. The OutOfMilk app isn’t just for grocery shopping: you can use it to make regular lists. And a fun bonus? Voice recognition! So when you make the list, you don’t have to type everything out. What an awesome time-saver.
So this is just a little taste about our favorite vacation. I have some other posts planned, especially the best places to eat and why! And so you don’t miss a single vacation post, remember to sign up to receive daily emails! The box is right at the top of this post to the right. You will be so glad you did.
Now, I can’t wait till that vacation starts. In the meantime, I think I will enjoy a Skinny Girl Cocktail while I sit on the back deck dreaming of the beach.
