A Day At The Shore

Yesterday, my Pop-Pop, Grammy, and Mommy took me to a place called "Atlantic City, NJ". Grammy said that sometimes, people call this place "A.C." too. This was my first trip to A.C. but, it reminded me of two other places I've been... Wildwood, NJ and Myrtle Beach, SC! All of these places have that stuff called "sand" and a really big swimming pool called an "ocean". We didn't walk on the sand or get in the ocean this time but, we did go to a place with lots of rides called the "Steel Pier".

First, we rode in these things that looked like racing cars called "go karts". Me and Mommy got in one kart and Pop-Pop was in another kart all by himself. Grammy was taking pics but, she got a chance to ride in one too, later in the day. There were other people in the karts and we all had a big race. I couldn't tell who won but, it was a really fast and fun ride. Then, me and Pop-Pop slowed things down a bit and got on the merry-go-round. After that, Grammy rode "up high" with me in this thing called an "airplane". The last thing I rode on was a GIANT sliding board... it was the biggest one I have ever seen! Me and Mommy had to climb a lot of steps to get to the top but, we went down the slide together really, really fast it was so much fun!

We also walked and strolled on this really long thing called a "boardwalk". There were lots and lots of people on the boardwalk doing the same thing. Many of them waved and said "hello" to me as they passed by so, I did it too! When it was time to eat, we had lunch at a place called "Johnny Rockets". There was music playing and all of the people who bring food to the tables got together to sing and dance while we ate. There was a really nice man named "Old Sam" who brought our food and he also gave me a Johnny Rockets hat to wear! I'm not too sure how I looked in it but, Grammy took a couple of pics so, you can see for yourself.

When we left the boardwalk, we went to some places called "outlet stores" and did a little something called "window shopping". My favorite was a store called "Kay-Bee" because it was full of toys! After that, we went to a place called "Caesars" and had dinner at something called a "buffet". Grammy said that we could eat as much as our tummies could hold so, that's what we did.
When we finished eating dinner, we went back to the car and headed for home. It was a fun day and here are some of the pics!

Siblings are the people we practice on. They teach us about
caring, cooperation, fairness, and kindness the hard way!


Lord Jesus, You were never too busy to pay attention to children, for You dearly loved them. We are happy that you love us and that You have time to listen to our prayers and to answer them. We thank You that You have made us Your own. As we get bigger and stronger every day, help us to grow stronger in our faith too. Bless our parents, whom You have given to us, and help us to respect and obey them, to love and treasure them. Forgive us when we disobey them or when we fail to respect them as Your previous gifts to us. Give them the wisdom to train us in the good and right way. Bless our home and every member of our family with a strong faith in You and true love to one another. Teach us to be kind, unselfish, helpful, cheerful, forgiving, and faithful in our duties. Help us to be like You, Lord Jesus, to grow in wisdom and character and in favor with God and all people. Send Your angels to watch over us, to keep us from all harm of body and soul. Bless us, and make us a blessing to our family and friends. Amen.

Thank you for stopping by and come back again!
