In my last post, I explain a bit about the crazy weekend that we had. And how my family made sure us kids still enjoyed our time in Jersey while my Pop stayed in the hospital. My Aunt Diane and my Dad took us kids to the beach and boardwalk for the day. The day was filled with unsanitary bathrooms, gift shops, pizza, running in the ocean, chasing volley ball courts, and sun burned shoulders. Here are a few photos from our fun day on the shore.
The whole reason behind us going to New Jersey was for a memorial service for my great aunt, Janet DeSimone. Aunt Janet was one person that I always admired. She had a heart that you don't find often. And of the only people who nearly mirrors her to me is her brother, my grandfather, Pop. My pop ended up having a problem with his lungs Saturday evening while we were at my Great Aunt Dianne's house. The adults all packed up and headed to the hospital with pop while kids all stayed back. The rest of the weekend ended up in the air with Pop being in the hospital with not a lot of answers, and our family really was amazing in making sure us kids still had a good time while out there. So we got to bond with my Aunt Dianne and Uncle Ed Saturday playing local games and eating Jersey Pizza, and then Sunday my other aunt Diane and my dad took us to Point Pleasant (which will be another post). So this trip did not turn out how we planned, but we are are continuing to pray hard, and enjoy the super awesome memories we still had while visiting one of my most favorite places in the world.
