Jenkinsons: Don’t Let Summer Slip Away

This adorable crew hit the rides a few weeks back and had a BLAST! Making Memories!!!

For my local Jersey Shore friends and readers….you simply can’t let these last few weeks of summer slip away from you!  There are amazing events happening DAILY through Labor Day weekend and beyond at Jenkinsons Boardwalk!  We have had such amazing trips up to the rides this summer…sometimes with just our family of four and other times with friends and their children.  The memories have been made- that is all that really matters, no?

Tomorrow…you can view “MOVIES ON THE BEACH”!  Planes is being featured as soon as dusk hits this week:)

Personally, I can’t wait to hit the Boardwalk for the “HOT HALLOWEEN” event.  Next Wednesday, 8/27, the kiddies can come dressed in their favorite costumes and stroll the boardwalk!  What a great excuse to wear those halloween getups more than once.  Connor will most likely go as a Pirate…remember that HERE….kind of perfect for the boardwalk.

Regardless of what you choose to do….I hope you will make the most of these last few carefree weeks before school starts and the fall grind begins!

Casual Summer Style: Baby Cargo Giveaway!

You may remember my Baby Cargo post from a few years back HERE .  I highlighted the launch of the Georgi Bag sharing how stylish and functional it is!  Lucky for us…they have designed another functional and stylish diaper bag….so I am back highlighting the fabulous Fiona Bag (which I tore out of the packaging and wore yesterday for our boardwalk trip)

This bag is SO perfect for those shorter trips, where you don’t need changes of clothing or multiple snacks.  I fit my wallet, keys, phone, diapers, and wipes and it was perfection.  There is a perfect spot for bottles as well, I just am not in that zone any longer…as we are trying (I stress the word trying) to take the bottle away from Preston, now at 21 months.  I love the crossbody detail and honestly, it does NOT look like a diaper bag.   WATCH THE VIDEO to see all this little bag can do and then enter the giveaway below!

I have a dear friends wedding tonight….styling the most beautiful Von Vonni dress…you can follow along with the fashion on Instagram if you like.  HAPPY FRIDAY and hope you have a lovely weekend:)

I am elated to share that I am serving as a #jenksambassador this summer…bringing you snippets of our experiences at the always fun Jenkinsons Boardwalk.  I will be sharing dates for free family movies, special promotions, and general reviews of our favorite things to do all summer long!  This ambassadorship was a natural fit for our family…as we live minutes from the boardwalk and hit the aquarium, arcade and rides constantly.  Hoping I can keep the boys attention long enough to play miniature golf this year…..wish me luck:)  Ha!

On a more serious note, I didn’t grow up full time at the beaches of New Jersey, but I have so many unforgettable childhood memories vacationing here every summer.  Some of the people I hold dear to those memories are no longer with us, and yet they remain….in flashes as I ride a rollercoaster with my four year old…or when I lick a supersized ice-cream cone with my one year old.  To be able to share that Jersey Shore magic with my sons fills my heart.  Truly.  I hope you will come with your families and see all that Jenkinsons has to offer.  Trust me, it is WAY more than coins, rides and cotton candy.

So follow along with the fun on my social media channels Instagram, Facebook and Twitter.  Also stay tuned as I will be giving away a FREE FAMILY DAY PASS to a lucky reader in July!



I like to keep it fresh here on TSF….so I partnered with an amazing local photography talent Adalie Scott Photography to capture my boys kicking it Jenkinsons style.  The shoot turned out so amazing, I plan to use the shots for our holiday card this year….”Greetings from the Jersey Shore” has a nice ring to it, no?  A true talent, she can take care of any of your photography needs..portraits, events, weddings and children.

Follow her on Facebook and Instagram for a daily dose of beautiful photography.  Details to book your OWN Jenkinsons Boardwalk photo session are below or email specific questions to
