We spent Fourth of July down the shore with friends then checked into the Icona in Avalon for the rest of the long weekend.  After grabbing lunch with friends in town we met up with family for a great beach day.  We did a happy hour at the pool with some friends, grabbed a drink at the beach bar and then all did a late dinner.

The next day we were expecting rain so we got out to the beach before it started.  It clouded over so after some pool playing once we were done on the beach we took Tatum back to the room for his morning nap (something we rarely do on vacation!) and I loved my hour reading out on our patio listening to the ocean.

We grabbed some appetizers for lunch at the beach bar and did some more pool time before getting ready for the night.  We had a babysitter for Tatum and grabbed a quick dinner then met up with friends for drinks.

Saturday we had great weather for our last day - after seeing lots of family/friends we spent this day just the three of us! In the morning we went over to Stone Harbor for a little shopping and lunch and then spent the early part of the afternoon on the beach.  We spent a good while at the pool after that and stayed out in the sun until late in the day.

We got ready and made our way into the little town for dinner at The Sea Grille - delicious and then all got some ice cream after - Tatum's new favorite treat is vanilla ice cream.


  1. Hard NOT to love vanilla ice cream! Glad he enjoyed his treat!!

  2. Spending time at the beach is always so much! I love that y'all still had time with just the two of you and as a family of 3! You need that too!

  3. Check out your lil' beach baby! The perfect way to ring in the 4th <3
