Scenes from a vacation

Ahhh, vacation at the beach. Simply 90 minutes from our house, but a world away.
Here are some glimpses into our week. It was glorious.

Fireworks on the beach on the 4th of July!

Boogie boarding. That Pod on her left leg survived 5 hours in the ocean.
It was a good Pod, I wanted to have it bronzed.

Sunset dolphin watching cruise around Cape May, NJ.
We spotted lots of dolphins and one beautiful sunset.

Bike riding on the Boardwalk every morning.
It's tradition.

One killer wave and BAM the Pod came loose.
So, Pod change on the beach. We made a lot of trash.

All week long, this guy in the light blue trunks was at our beach.
Grace swore he looked EXACTLY like Nick Jonas!
I had her pose in front of him so I could get her picture with the pretend Nick.

Hot chocolate treat for our breakfast out.
I SWAG-ed that baby at 30 grams.
Sand with your sisters.
Good times.

A D-meetup with our favorite gal, Kelly.
More on this to come....

What would a vacation be without some rides to make you scream?

The beach restores our souls.
Somehow, you realize how little you really are.

I wanna come over and drive 90 minutes to the beach with you.

Love the spontaneous site change...we had one of those in the car on a desolate highway after driving for 14 hours. Lovely. Turned out not to be her site. Just too much driving, I guess!!! ACK!!!

Can't beat a vacation with random pseudo-Nick Jonas :) AND KELLY TOO!?!?!?!?

Oh my gosh!! We love Cape May and seeing the lighthouses! : ) THere are some awesome flea markets up there. : ) We are headed to Ocean City, NJ in less than 2 weeks, we love it there! : ) (SO much that we drive 24 hours to get three days) Is love enough?

So glad you had a great beach time (and with Nick Jonas!!) ; )

LOVE the pictures! Looks like you had a blast.

Bummer about the pod. I remember the same thing happened to Matthew on field day last year.

But changing that was umm...sand-free! : )

And meeting Kelly...what an awesome treat!!

So, so sweet! Love the pix...and the "bronzing" comment on the pod you goof ball. It looks/sounds like you all had a wonderful time.

Love to you and the girls Penny.

Looks fabulous. I love love love Cape May. My husband and I "discovered" it together back when we were just dating, and we consider it our special place. We try to go back as often as we can, for a little anniversary get-away. (We went last year, but couldn't make it this year.) :(
