above is "Lucy" - yes, it's like Pee-Wee's Playhouse with the Dinosaurs, except she's a dinosaur - can't wait to climb inside!
it's gonna be another GREAT weekend! - i'm heading down the shore early today with my Brother, Sister-in-Law, Niece and my Mom -- we are going to see Lucy the Elephant (above, so psyched about this) and then take my Mom to one of her fave tiki/waterfront bars/restaurants, The Captains Inn, for lunch - she's been hounding me to take her there, so it'll be a perfect lil day for our family to spend the day outside
Cait, my Dad, and myself at the zoo 2 years ago - Cait is SO tiny in this pic!
Saturday will include going to the beach, possible trip to the Popcorn Zoo - *which is THE only zoo i will go to - it's a shelter for injured animals or pets people can no longer take care of - so you might see a monkey with no tail, a donkey with 3 legs, a bird with no wings, ect -- and all the money you pay at the zoo is ALL donation - which i LOVE - i'm sorta' obsessed with the place* - then some pool time will work its way in too .. and possibly a lil Fantasy Island (small amusment park in LBI) to end the night ..
then Sunday - it's GIRLS BRUNCH at Pappardella's - which is a very Italian lil restaurant in uptown NYC - afterwards gonna hit up some outdoor markets and end the day at The Boat House in Central Park ..
HOW ARE YOUR PLANS LOOKING?!?!?!
