Sorry for being MIA lately, but come July we pack our bags, ditch the city and take off to our favorite place in the world: Shelter Island, NY. We are fortunate enough to be able to retreat to our beach home for the months of July and August and we don't really leave. Lots of swimming, play dates, beach, and activities that get my kids to sleep in.
Here are some fun shots from a recent local 4th of July parade near by. It truly is a step back in time to see the veterans, home-made floats, vintage cars/trucks, marching bands, and...gorillas on bikes? Don't ask. Even a little quirky-ness in a parade makes it that much more fun.
Hope your 4th was filled with lots of joy and laughter!
