Family has never been just about blood to me. I am so blessed to be surrounded by friends that I consider loved ones. And this week was no exception. I decided to bring my godson Zj to Connecticut to visit Tio A and Titi Jenni. I haven’t seen them since my niece Jolie’s birthday in October and I was having withdrawals. Zj was a little fussy on the train ride over there, especially since he kept stating that he hated the beach, and that;s exactly where we were headed. Ha.. serves him right… once we showed up and met up with everyone he was super excited!
Justen, my nephew was ready for war, and when Jolie and Zj were in the sand, he was ready to destroy castles… and when in the water, he was ready to shove them in the water. I guess that’s what big cousins/brothers are for!
I on the other hand was trying my best to hide from the sun, at least for today. I’m not much of a sun bather, especially since I always manage to get tan without even trying. Lately I’ve noticed the only part of me getting bronze is my shoulders, while the rest of my body is as white as snow. Hence the huge hat I was hanging out in.
My “brother” A was not one to hide from the beams, and was comfy while blasting some old school hip hop in the background.
Jen was prepared like the amazing mom she always is, and had deli cuts and ice-tea ready for all of us to destroy.
It was a good day at the beach, and I was so glad I got to catch up with family.
Now enjoy these pics 🙂
