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 hilarious round of “Lie” (and discovered that Mama is the best liar of the family).   The first performance of the evening was the always entertaining, Trout Fishing in America.  We then saw another favorite, Broadway By Request, but were less entertained by the next two acts, an Abbott & Costello impersonation act, and Peter Tork’s (of The Monkees fame) Shoe Suede Blues band.  But that didn’t dampen our evening, nor did the fact that they ran out of spiral fries at Curly’s … we still enjoyed bringing in the New Year with a BANG, watching the fireworks over the boardwalk!

First Dip 2012And of course, our other new tradition, was our First Dip in the ocean, on New Years day (second year running).  Once again, the whole family (including Elisa this year), dove into the ocean, with a few thousand other crazy OC’rs for the polar bear swim … and some actually swam, staying in for ten minutes or so (but not us).  Thanks to Alison and Anna for joining us, and taking our group shot once again.

Earlier in the week, we strolled the local state park, Tyler State Park, so I thought I’d throw in a few photos of that excursion as well.  Note, I, Oma and the girls ‘strolled’ … Joke had to run, of course 🙂
