After our trip to Sahl Farm last week, we were just a little bit away from Atlantic City. We have barely been to the beach this summer which has bummed all of us out. It wasn't the warmest day but it was perfect and no crowds! I've only been there once years ago when Dave and I were first dating. It was dead winter and super late. Besides the beach I didn't know if anything would interest Elinor. I forgot how themed some places are on the boardwalk. She loved the lobby of some western themed casino and when we walked through Caesars she was obsessed with the statues.
We made it all the way down to steel pier. Elinor saw the Ferris wheel from so far away and was focused on getting there. Every few minutes "I wanna go there daddy!". She is so small and only had the option of 2 rides. She picked the motorcycles. We thought they just went in a circle but nope they also jerked up and down. She was the only kid riding and her poor little face was terrified. When she got off she told us she loved it and wanted to try another ride. It was already pretty late at that point and we headed back to the car.
I forget how close Jersey beaches are to us. I feel like they are so far since I don't see the ocean everyday like I did in Boston. Hopefully next year we can make more trips there.
