Cape Cod Vacation Lessons Learned

1. That as the boyz have gotten older, we finally don't need to put a luggage rack on the roof or to hitch a trailer in order to schlep pack & plays, a double stroller and all that other baby gear. FREEDOM!
2. That I should have insisted that Hubby trim his goatee BEFORE vacation, not after. Blech.
3. That next year is "The Year of the Wives" as this year was the oft-proclaimed "Summer of Jay and Viz 2009."
4. That it is a rare occurrence indeed when one is able to snap a picture of 5 boys sitting still on the beach. (It's called lunchtime.)
5. That cute, sandy toes = sandy legs = sandy crotch.
6. That if you arm little boys with shovels and repeatedly encourage them to try to dig "all the way to China!"...
They just might.
7. That every year the hydrangeas on the Cape are exquisite.
8. That beach hangovers SUCK.
9. That little boys have big league dreams.
10. That there is no place like home - freshly showered and SAND-FREE!

See you next year, Cape Cod!

Good pictures! looks like an awesome vacation....although I wouldn't want to unpack that car.

Jen said...

Our travels this year included less stuff too. Yeah!
And I totally second your notion that hangovers such!

You don't know me, but I'm a fan of your writing! Question - would you mind recommending a place to stay in Cape Cod? We are considering going this year and would love a personal reference for somewhere. THANKS!

Looks like a blast!

And yes - beach hangovers do suck royally. I had my share of them last summer when I took a girls' trip to Cancun and, among other things, bonged Planters' Punch (like a pro, I might add) in the pool. :)

I always think the same thing about the hydrangeas.

To anonymous: depending on which part of the Cape you're planning to stay, try www.craigvillebeach.com.

It's Craigville Realty's site and has houses for rent in the Hyannisport/Centerville/Osterville area.
