Enjoying Cape Cod
We headed down to Cape Cod for a little vacation last week and lucked out with the most amazing weather! I'm pretty sure it was sunny each and every day we were there.
Cassidy and I enjoyed our morning walks to "The Pit" where we searched for crabs and sunk our feet into the "quishy sand".
We waded and then eventually swam in the ocean while trying to avoid the massive amounts of seaweed. It was so hot that we almost didn't care anymore when it wrapped itself around our legs and ankles.
I do not think that Cassidy stopped moving the entire time we were there, except for while sleeping at night. She awoke from the fireworks once, her first fireworks experience, and the look on her face was that of pure and complete happiness.
Dylan...he did what he does.
He was especially hot, so he rested when it all got to be too much. He observed his surroundings and soaked up life.
He smiled and waved at anyone who so much as glanced in his direction. Actually, come to think of it, he smiled and waved at those who weren't looking either...
When we returned home, I carried both sweaty kids up the basement steps. I plunked them down on the floor so I could begin the task of unpacking the car. Dylan's face lit up as he began to recognize where we were. They hadn't seen their toys in a while, so everything was exciting again. They both began emptying out the toy baskets and Cassidy turned to me and said, "Awww! Our house! I missed it!"...
We are back full swing now, and are settling into a little routine again. Oh how I love going away. And the coming home sometimes is even better...
