Labor Day may have come and gone, but summer’s not over — especially not for Snooki, who lives right on the beach now that she’s back into the routine of filming for Snooki and JWOWW. You can bet that Snooki’s going to take in the final remaining weeks of sunshine before fall kicks in — and she wouldn’t be Snooki if she didn’t do it in style.

Well, if you consider giant inflatable dolphins stylish, anyway… because that’s exactly what Snooki posed with in her latest Instagram pic. “Time to ride the waves,” our favorite redheaded mama proclaimed. She’s not test driving the newest addition to the LaValle family in the water, though — Snooks sits atop Flipper’s more plastic brother in where we assume is somewhere inside their house.

Since Snooki and her family celebrated Lorenzo turning one last week, we suspect this toy may be one of his birthday gifts. Have you seen his new wheels? We wish Snooki was our mom so we could have such awesome presents!

So does the new water toy mean Snooki’s got a pool at her new shore pad? We’ll come over anytime, Snooks. Looking for a babysitter?
