Every summer, families look forward to going to the beach for some fun in the sun & most of all to relax.. Long winter days are easier to get through, when you think of summer time fun. Well, my family does to, but we are a very competitive group. We look forward to the hermit crab racing at the Jersey shore. Every Tuesday at Z- Line shore shop they hold hermit crab races for the “Children”…..lol and my husband. The kids all come with their cages in hand and line up to get a number for their hermit crab. The owner of the shop calls out ten at a time and the crabs have to crawl from one end of a weekly themed race track to the other. It’s all very cute, every week they have themes for the kids hermit crab race. This week they had a back to school theme. Books, pencils and erasers were put on the track. This is very funny to watch the crabs try to navigate the objects in their way. Now let me say we are about an hour away from the Jersey Shore, and we do not go every Tuesday. Yesterday, was the last race for the season and we made sure our two crabs were in the race. We have Sponge Bob, number 45, and Curly, number 54. My husband said “we had ringers and this was going to be the first time in 12 years we would win a free T-shirt.” The race starts and I watch my husband, Kailey, Kristynna and two friends cheering for their crabs, only to find out that both hermit crabs sat at the starting-line for the whole race. We were not winners. With smiles on their faces and a plan about how we would get them next year, we sat and plotted out our hermit crab training over some homemade ice cream. I am going to have to pick up some big wholesale hair bow orders. I have a feeling we are going to have to buy a faster crab……lol!
