We spent a long weekend down at the shore in Avalon, NJ - it was our first getaway anywhere since the Corona Virus hit.  After countless trips cancelled, we were thrilled to get away.  We got down late afternoon on Wednesday so went right to the beach to let Tatum run and play for a bit.  

We got takeout and ate on our balcony for dinner - not the usual for us while being away but with all that's going on right now it worked out great for us.  We snuck out after dinner to grab ice cream and visit with family.

Thursday the sun was out and after a quick outing for donuts, we headed right to the beach late morning.  We had a fantastic family beach day and played until lunchtime then went back for a bit afterwards too.  We finished up the day letting Tatum swim at the pool.

Thursday night was our only night out so we fit in what we could - we had dinner outside, went in a few shops (Tatum picked out his new hat himself) and then played mini golf - a total highlight for our little boy. 

Friday morning we slept in and woke up to the tropical storm that was coming up the coast - it looked awful outside!  Luckily late morning the rain eased up - we headed over to Stone Harbor to walk around and browse in the shops, let Tatum pick out a toy and grabbed pizza to bring back for lunch on the balcony.
