WPLJ's Summer Kick-off

We've been going to Wplj's summer blast-off at Jenkinson's in Point Pleasant for a few years now. It involves waking up before dawn and heading to the beach around 6:30a.m.- not our best time of day. But, Griffin and Riley wanted to go and they had some pretty big bands playing this year. We saw Jason Mraz- he did a really nice funky redition of "The Remedy" and the headliner- Lifehouse. It was packed solid- almost impossible to get around. We had to make our way to the back, though, because that was where they were giving away the free sodas and Mountain Dew at 7am is Riley's idea of the perfect breakfast. My sister, Barbara, showed up with her kids and we listened to the band for a little while and headed out to sit on the beach for a bit. The weather was perfect. We were home by 10 am. A perfect start to summer "down the shore".
Hope you have a great weekend!

I remembered about that and then I forgot! Hope you had a blast! We will be there next year!

This was a lot of fun to have for free - and a great way to kick off the summer for the second year running!

I'm so jealous! I didn't get the e-mail until after it was too late already. Definitely next year!
