First Half of 2012 Mash-Up

Well it’s been a long time since we’ve posted to the “Macera’s page,” but that doesn’t mean nothing has been happening in the past six months. Quite the opposite … it’s been an event-filled first half of 2012 with no time left to post. Since we’re seeing off the girls today for a 3 week […]

Second, First Night & First Swim

For the second time in as many years, we celebrated First Night in Ocean City, NJ for New Year’s Eve.  Starting with our, now traditional, sushi dinner prepared by the GIRLS (while Papa was working in the attic, so he says 🙂 ), we filled the time between dinner and the evening’s entertainment, with a […]

Giving Thanks for Surf & Sun

For the second year in a row, we spent Thanksgiving down the shore and we couldn’t have asked for better weather! Papa did more work on the house in the morning, but in the afternoon we enjoyed a great dinner cooked by Mama with the whole Macera clan … topped off with a game of […]

Another Fall in Ocean City

Fall has come to OC, but you wouldn’t tell by the fact that we spent the day in the water yesterday, and today walking along the water in Corsons Inlet in t-shirts. The water temp is still about 70° so Papa had fun boogie-boarding, and running around with his new best friend Hazen, as well […]

Ocean City Vacation 2011 #2

Back “down the shore” for our second week as a family this summer. This time round, we hooked-up with the Fabians(+) who traveled 340 miles to visit beautiful Ocean City, NJ, and they were treated to an earthquake & hurricane in one week … do we know how to entertain our guests? 🙂 Had a […]

Ocean City Vacation 2011 #1

This past week was our first week of two that we plan to spend down the Jersey Shore this summer. It started with a dinner for Nonno, turning 82 on Sunday (we had a family party the week before that Gabriella made an awesome lemon cake for). The highlight of the week was para-sailing on […]

Long Overdue Post

Well, last post was about Spring, and now we’re well into Summer and we have not posted anything, which is not to say that nothing has been happening! The end of the school year for the girls was filled with softball, horseback riding, dance and music which kept us all running around. Add to that […]

Christmas Holiday, 2010

The family had a fun, action-packed, holiday this year and Papa decided to pack it all into one post! Joke & the girls spent Christmas eve day, preparing Sushi for dinner – not quite the traditional Seven Fishes. On Christmas morning we were awoken a little earlier than we would have liked (6:30am), to the […]

Sylvia Comes to Ocean City

* Warning, this post has graphic descriptions. Gabriella’s best friend, Sylvia, joined us for our last trip to OC for the summer this past weekend, and we packed in as much excitement as we could. We started with an evening on the beach, with another golden sunset, followed by a moonlit walk on the beach […]

Photo Shoot / Ocean City, NJ

If you are ever on the Ocean City beach during the “golden hour” you are bound to see groups of people at every block taking family pictures in the golden light.  In case you didn’t know, Papa ‘dabbles’ in photography, so  it was inevitable that the Macera’s would take their turn. This evening it wasn’t […]
