One of the best things to do on the boardwalk is get up early and go biking.
This is easy to do when you are sharing a house with 5 kids and they think sleeping past 6 is ‘sleeping in’.
One morning my dad and I took my boys and 2 of their cousins on a surrey (which is basically a car but a bicycle where the kids get a joy ride and the adults pedal until they feel like their legs just might break in half).
Halfway through the ride I asked my dad if we could pull over for a photo and as he was snapping the shot, a well-meaning lady walked up and offered to take the photo for us because, “What a beautiful family.”
That’s when my dad and I looked at each other and bust out laughing because this sweet gal thought that he and I were married and these were our 4 kids.
Lord have mercy.
After that I believe my legs completely turned to Jell-O and my dad had to bike that truck 10 blocks on his own.
Having 4 kids is exhausting.
