Memorial Day

Ryan travels outside of the city all the time for work, he gets out of the hustle and bustle, gets to actually drive a car, and even gets to make Target or grocery trips for me! I on the other hand have only been out of the city once since we moved here. I love living in the city, but I do miss seeing greenery, trees, and (in the words of the Dixie Chicks!) being able to look at the horizon and not see a building standing tall!!  And we both of coarse miss going to the beach! Laying out at Central Park just doesn't appeal to me! I want a pool I can jump in or an ocean I can run into!!! So on Monday we decided to spend the holiday out in Long Island. Ryan's family was so nice having us out to Gilgo beach for the day! They stayed out there for the weekend on their boat so we got to hang out on the dock eating great food, walk across the street to the lay out at on the beach, and even take a boat ride!! The water was FREEZING!! So we just walked up beach along the water getting our feet wet (no one was swimming..not even kids!) We had a great day and can't wait to spend some more time out there this summer!!
