One thing that I absolutely love about living in NJ is the beaches shores and boardwalks that this great state has to offer. My entire life has been filled with memories of rides and games and the amazing food that you can truly only experience at the NJ shore. This weekend the family and I had a nice getaway to Point Pleasant Beach and Jenkinsons Boardwalk. By far it’s our favorite NJ shore destination and I highly recommend it for families with young children. Theres an aquarium, beautiful beaches and restaurants and tons of family friendly games and rides for all ages.
We stayed at a cost friendly room at the Atlantic Inn Suites in Neighboring Wall Township and were about 15 minutes away from the action at all times. Some of the highlights were a delicious meal at Jersey Shore BBQ which honestly had some of the best BBQ in the state and a gorgeous free fireworks show on Friday night at Jenkinsons Boardwalk.
We even go to quench our current Pokemon Go obsession as the little guy and I wandered the beach and boardwalk finding all types of Pokemon including tons of Magikarp and our first Jigglypuff. Little Larry even “caught” a pikachu in real life as many of the Jenkinsons games are stocked with Pokemon goodies to help fuel the current craze the game has spawned.
Just a great time all around and something I wanted to share with you all as a fair priced fun one to spend with your little ones on the NJ shore. Have any other favorite places you think we should visit? Let me know in the comments or reach out on Twitter @DadWorldOrder
One of the most exciting things about Sweet Suite and BBNYC is getting our hands on some of the newest and most exciting toys of the year before they release. Without question the new expansions for LEGO DIMENSIONS are some that got us the most excited and we had to take some pics to share.
It was so awesome seeing Gizmo from Gremlins, Lord Voldemort and characters from Adventure Time, The A-Team, Mission Impossible and more go wild inside of a Harry Potter Quidditch stadium. The new figures look great just like the first sets and the Ghostbusters’ Chinese restaurant headquarters from the new film looked fantastic as the new base.
What I think will excite parents the most about the expansions for LEGO DIMENSIONS is that YOU DONT HAVE TO BUY A NEW STARTER SET TO PLAY. These new expansions work just like the old ones with the existing base and figures, so it just helps open up you and your children’s world of play without breaking the bank. I cant recommend the new sets highly enough and you can grab yours starting this September at all major retailers!
Summer in the NYC area is always an adventure and our friends over at The Toy Insider put on one of the most exciting events every year with Sweet Suite, which is part of Blogger Bash NYC. Sweet Suite is a night where toy companies and bloggers/press have fun and get to be big kids while checking out some of the coolest toys for the upcoming Holiday Season.
This year was no exception and was arguably the best yet as we jumped aboard the Majesty Yacht to take in all the sights and sounds of this years Sweet Suite event. There was so much great stuff to see and we will be breaking down some of our favorites in future posts but for now enjoy the pics from this years amazing event!!!
