Atlantic City 2011, a set on Flickr.We went on a family trip to Atlantic City to celebrate Dick's 70th birthday. My mom and sister stayed at Trump's Taj Majal and I stayed at my Wyndham Skyline Tower timeshare which is just two blocks away.
Our first afternoon we wandered the boardwalk. It was hot out and we were all pretty tired from traveling. We met for dinner at the Knife & Fork Inn (where I head a really great pineapple martini!). We later went for drinks as the Irish Pub and then went over to Resorts for some gambling. I was way up in craps but then lost it all even faster than I won it.
My second day in Atlantic City I rested a bit. Some people went to brunch and out shopping but I slept in and then caught up on a Real Housewives of New Jersey marathon (which was funny since I was in Jersey). This is because we were going to have a little party at my place in the afternoon so it didn't make much sense to run out for only an hour when I had to set up. So Dick was surprised and we all hung out and had a few drinks. Dinner that night was at Dock's Oyster House and, those of us who were not too drunk by then, went back to Trump's Taj Mahal to gamble a bit. But it was a holiday weekend and the tables were packed.
We all had a lot of fun and I think the birthday boy was very happy.
