Hey, there's no beach here

We’re back from vacation. Sigh… The trip was good and we learned that Bug can go nonstop…not just the typical three-year-old gottabemovingallthetime energy but his mouth as well. He can talk ALL day. The chatter is more apparent in the car or maybe it’s just harder to tune out in that closed environment.

A few comments on the trip:

Donnie and I got away for an overnight when my in-laws offered to watch Bug. Funny how quickly we could get out the door when that offer was made!

Beach time.

Bug took swimming lessons in the ocean. He seemed to be less interested in the water after the lessons. What did he learn? Every so often he’ll put his hands together over his head and say “I’m a rocket.” (Well worth the money, don't you think?) Best part for him…he got to wear goggles while in the water and got a lifesaver after the lesson. He thought they were tiny Oreos obviously, the boy needs to be introduced to more candy.

Great seafood dinners but spaced out enough that I have a hive-free body.

Great steak dinners.

Two trips for cantaloupe ice cream and a pint in the freezer at the house.

Wine, wine, wine…

(Umm, too many food references here, maybe?)

Reading time never enough but always grateful for what I can sneak in.

A Cape Cod Baseball League game.

Dancing with Bug in the dining room to the new Bruce DVD before dinner.

Uneventful drives to and from the Cape with extra stops each way when Bug announced he had to use the potty. Now if we can just get him to stop taking off his shoes when he pees...


  1. Oh man, this sounds so fun! I'm so glad you had such a great time AND that you got away for a night. Yea for the in-laws right! Bug is too cute.
    I haven't been to Cape Cod in years. We so need to get back there.

  2. Wait a second.
    Swimming lessons in the ocean?? That would scare me. I'm a wuss.

  3. Cantaloupe ice cream...I bet that is so good!

  4. Glad it was a good time. We headed down for the day Sunday and I was thinking of you at Four Seas.

  5. Wine, reading, dinner out, dates, the ocean, and Bug...perfection!

  6. My nephew used to strip down naked to sue the potty :) Be grateful it's just his shoes! And what is vacation for but eating without care? We're not going to OBX this year but hopefully we'll still have fun - I know I will miss walking on the beach though :(

  7. LOL! Well, at least if he pees on himself, he will not ruin his shoes. Sounds like a good time to me, and it's something about that age where they just can't shut it...ya know?

  8. It sounds like you guys had a great time! It is nice to get out alone once in a while, that was nice of your in-laws to help out!
