Down by the Bay

Last weekend was D's Annual "Cousins Party" in which all his family (and cousins of course) get together at his relative's fabulous house right on the water. The party every year continues to be full of good food, cold drinks and lots of laughs. Here are some pics from our day down by the water in Toms River NJ. Also, the pic below is the best pic I have of my "outfit of the day" so please bear with me : )
Outfit Details:
Crochet Top: Old Navy // Black Dress: Victoria's Secret catalogue // Hat: Gap // Sunnies: Loft
 Wedge Sandals: Payless // Watch: Michael Kors // Necklace: Kay's Open Heart Collection
The leg kick was unintentional (I swear!) but the pic actually came out really nice! ; )
And then we all had fun taking silly pics with baby Ava (D's adorable niece)
 And of course the food!! These pics were taken by D's cousin:
Homemade stuffed mozzarella, fresh crabs, salad, clams....
 BBQ ribs, corn on the cob, chips and dips, and some vino...
And of course, D's Uncles five alarm chili (seriously, it's that hot!!)
And then later that night some of the cousins headed to the boardwalk in Seaside Heights, NJ for some summertime fun. Yes, this is wear the cast of Jersey Shore resides, and no we did not see them!
We had some boardwalk pizza, ice cream, and D even won me giant stuffed raccoon (which we later named Rocky) -- however now he sits on our couch (since we have to place for him in our apartment) and he just sits and stares at us with his big creepy eyes. haha

Hope everyone has a lovely day! : )
