My husband’s birthday was June 30th! So we celebrated during the whole weekend!
Friday we went bowling with family and friends at Bowlmor Bowling Alley in White Plains. Surprisingly I did pretty well since I haven’t played in a long time lol!
Saturday I surprised him and took him to see Phantom of the Opera! He’s been dying to see this showing for the longest time so he was so excited!
I’ve never seen the original Phantom of the Opera so I didn’t know what to expect. The play was pretty good! It had my attention to the whole time! Lol
We headed to BH Kitchen & Bar afterwards to get some good eats! We both ordered BBQ Pulled Pork sandwiches and we devoured them! Haha!
Sunday we went to Jones Beach on Long Island with family. We arrived early because we knew it would be super crowded. Good thing we made that decision because it was pretty empty when we arrived. But as we were setting up our area on the beach, the crowd started flooding in! It was such a nice and hot day! We all got a good tan haha! I love the beach!
After the beach, we went to one of my husband’s favorite restaurants, Roc N Ramen in New Rochelle. They serve ramen noodles Japanese style which includes meats, vegetables, and more! I ordered Curried OxTail Ramen and hubby ordered BBQ Chicken Ramen. So delicious!!!
I have to say that this was a great weekend and I’m so happy my husband enjoyed himself!
Bring a gallon of water and a few water bottles. This helps with saving space in your cooler for your other treats!
2. GOOD SUNSCREEN
The sun brings joy to everyone but it can be a killer at times and may be hotter than expected! Makes sure to bring sunscreen with an SPF that best suits you! To avoid sunburn I recommend EVERYONE to wear sunscreen!
Bring your own umbrella to get some shade because it can get pretty hot on the beach! Buying or bringing an umbrella beforehand also helps save you a few bucks from having to rent an umbrella at the beach!
This is a great tip for adults who have kids! A good way to keep track of your kids is to bring a whistle along! Teach your family the “family whistle” that you’ve come up with and use it whenever you need to get their attention!
5. EXTRA BLANKET
Use the blanket as an area to lay your bags and other items on top like your bag, towels, etc.
6. JUG OF WATER OR BABY POWDER
You’re probably thinking “why would I need this?!” Well you know when you get to your car and you still have sand on your feet?! All you have to do is keep a jug of water in your trunk and wash off those sandy feet! Or you could wipe baby powder on your feet and the sand will come right off!
7. CHANGE OF CLOTHES
To avoid having wet seats after driving back from the beach, bring a change of clothes! It makes life so much easier!
For those who prefer not to swim, bringing a nice and comfy beach chair will be great for relaxing on the beach!
Bringing a radio can lighten up the mood and drown out the noise of those around you!
10. LOTS OF ENTERTAINMENT
If you want to chill on the beach, bring a good book or magazine! If you want to be a little more active, bring football, frisbees etc. to have a good time with your family and friends!
Enjoy your beach day! =)
