Each year, we spend a week at my Mom's beach house in North Cape May, NJ. After we all left the nest, Mom decided to retire to her little beach cottage, which she has since renovated into a warm, inviting year-round home.
Two years ago, on July 1, 2011, Josh and I were married on the deck of this little beach cottage and we're lucky enough to spend our anniversaries there as well. We're not much for fanfare, especially over an unexpected wedding we planned in four days that came after a five-year relationship and our first child, so an anniversary at the beach is just right for us.
Although there's not an overwhelming amount of things (besides hitting the beach) to do in North Cape May, NJ, we always manage to find ways to stay busy. We've visited the Cape May County Zoo

and the Aviation Museum.
Last year, we took Monkey on his first ride on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.

Because the trip is always during 4th of July week, we get to sit on the deck (which is only one house from the beach) and watch fireworks, which is the highlight of Monkey's trip. This year will be Bear's first fireworks experience and I can't wait to get some great reaction photos.
I'm looking forward to lots of fun beach activities with the boys and to sharing them with you when we return!
* Happy Summer! *
