Visiting the Hindenburg crash site
What does the Hindenburg, the beach and apple picking have in common? It is how we spent our weekend! If you follow me on Instagram then you already knew the answer and if you don't...well why not?? My mom flew in from California on Thursday evening for a two week visit. It is perfect timing because we are trying to explore this new place we live in so she gets to come along for the ride.
Hubby, mom and I went to visit the Hindenburg site at Lakehurst on Friday while the kids were in school. There was a nice memorial on the ground, nothing fancy. It was pretty cool being on the site and seeing the gigantic hanger where the Hindenburg as created and housed.

Saturday was hot and humid so we made a run down to Avon by the Sea. It was our first time there and it is a beautiful beach and boardwalk. We didn't spend a lot of time because quickly we noticed a huge storm coming over the beach.
Thanks to all the rain on Saturday the temperature was much cooler for Sunday. So we headed out to the local orchard to pick peaches and apples. It has been a few years since we picked our own fruits and it is always a fun family day. The peaches were the size of soft balls and the Honeycrisp apples are divine! The family has requested I make the take and carry apple pies I blogged about HERE back in 2011.
So far it looks like New Jersey is going to be a fun duty station for us. Lots of things to do, very close to the ocean and the local produce is everywhere.
