On Wednesday DFH and I and some of our friends headed to Long Beach Island to celebrate ALV's birthday and hang with my parents for the 4th of July weekend.
There were five of us who came in from Pittsburgh and we brought a ton of stuff so we rented a mini van which was so fun for our road trip. A minivan may be my next car I loved all of the space.
We arrived on Long Beach Island super late on Wednesday and then woke up Thursday and packed the car back up to celebrate ALV's birthday in Atlantic City for the night.
A group fireball shot was necessary at 11:00 am to start the 30th birthday fun.
The weather was gorgeous on Thursday so once we arrived in Atlantic City we headed straight to the boardwalk to Bungalow, the beach bar to enjoy a few cocktails on the beach.

On Thursday night we all got dolled up before feasting on tacos and margaritas at Casa Taco for dinner. ALV even got three cakes for her 30th birthday celebration. Cheers to 30!
After dinner we headed to Boogie Nights for their 90's night dance party.
Paparazzi, no more pictures please.
A bunch of ALV's friends from college met us in Atlantic City for the night, it was such a fun group!
We woke up to a monsoon on the 4th of July, but it was perfect weather for recovering after a big night and traveling back to LBI. Luckily by dinner time it cleared up so we were able to enjoy drinks outside on the deck with my parents and end the night watching fireworks on the bay and playing with sparklers.

One last Birthday celebration for ALV
On Friday night we went to Plantation a local bar/restaurant for live music and a beer. I had to try the FU Sandy beer made by Flying Fish as 100% of the proceeds go to benefit victims of Sandy.
Saturday was another gorgeous day. We spent it in the lagoon paddle boarding, kayaking, playing cornhole before spending the afternoon at beach.
We came home and enjoyed some apps and beers on the boat followed by an incredible lobster dinner.
Until next time LBI.
