Cape May!

This year for my birthday, Steve planned an impromptu trip to Cape May, New Jersey.  As I have written about in the past, Cape May, is very special for me.  I grew up going there and have lots of family connections, which makes it all the more special.  It is truly one of my favorite places so when Stephen suggested we go for my birthday, I couldn't resist.  It was a bit of an adventure--eating out all our meals and the four of us in one room, but we had a blast and the boys actually slept.  It was cute because on one of the first mornings they both woke up and talked to each other.  Little Stephen asked about the different odd noises in the room (air conditioning, mini fridge, etc) and Georgie responded that the noise was a "Woodpecker."

After the drive up we went to Louie's to get pizza. Georgie, who was thrilled to be out of the car, loved the jukebox.  He's dancing in this picture!

Georgie Man on the beach.  The little boy who is fearless did not really love the beach.  He called it the "sandbox."

Stephen LOVED the beach.  He loved digging, the ocean, and playing with all the sand toys.

Nanny and Georgie.  My Mom, who grew up going to Cape May and whose parents owned a summer home there for many years, came for two nights.  This let us visit with friends and have a date night on my birthday.  Thanks, Mom!!

After dinner we walked on the beach.  What a great trip!  Can't wait to get back!!!


  1. Great little trip. Where did you stay? I'm hoping we can bring the baby down for a long weekend in October...
