Since I will be going back to work in September I have deemed August the month for 31 Days of Summer Fun! I want to make sure I make the most of my remaining time off with Fauxhawkboy and not have any regrets about our time together. August 1st we went to a local boardwalk with my parents, brother, SIL, niece and nephew. We let all of the kids go on the rides together and they had a blast! Today, we went to Mother Goose Story Time at the library and then headed to Long Beach Island. We walked out to the jetty and let Fauxhawkboy play in a small wading pool of the ocean’s water. Then, we headed back to the car for a quick change of clothes and then hiked up the 217 steps of the Barnegat Lighthouse. First I had Fauxhawkboy in the front carrier, and then Fauxhawksdaddy took over half way up (and down). We enjoyed the view and cool breeze at the top for a few minutes before heading back down 217 steps! Needless to say both mommy and daddy’s legs were shaking by the time we reached the bottom! We were both a little surprised by the shaky legs, especially since Fauxhawksdaddy is an avid runner. We chalked it up to the hot conditions and using different muscles in our legs to go up and down so many stairs in a short period of time!
