Summer Vacation and an Anniversary

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 
Monkey with 'Baba', checking out animals.

and the Aviation Museum.  

Last year, we took Monkey on his first ride on the Cape May-Lewes Ferry.
Monkey and Mama - and Bear on the way!

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! *

  1. Good morning. Stopping by from Lovin' The Weekend Blog Hops to say hi and glad you could join in. It is nice to meet you. I wanted to let you know that you have been randomly selected as this weekend's Featured Host! Could you please email me at to let me know you got this message. I will need a short blurb about you/your blog. How long you've been blogging, what you blog about, why you started blogging, etc (things you would like our readers to know). I will add it to the post and send you the html code to go live Friday 6pm EST. I hope to hear from you soon.

    I am wondering if you will see this as I am not sure if you are already on vacation. If I do not hear from you for this week I will be happy to have you as a Featured Host in an upcoming week if you contact me as soon as you can. Thank you. Have a great day.
