Cape 2011

Well since the kids have been in school now for a little and I have some time during the day I figured I would finally get around to talking about out trip this year to the beach :) As I mentioned before we had another wonderful trip this year to our favorite sandy spot and we also decided that 1 week is just not enough time and have decided to figure out some way that we can squeeze more time out next year. This was our 7th year going and I still get so excited when we role into town, I seriously love this place and hope it never changes.

We took some friends this year and the kids had a blast having some friends there to play with.  We also had to go early this year due to baseball and it was the first year in a long time Wyatt hadn't spent his bday at the beach.  The boys were suppose to play ball on the day we went so the women decided we would pack up & head down solo before them not wanting to miss one moment of beach time. We wouldn't let Wyatt skip the game since we had committed him to the team and thought it was important that he not skip it just cause he wanted to do something else instead. But I know Shane and David were secretly doing a rain dance to keep it raining that morning and lucky them the games got rained out and they ended up only about 2hrs behind us.

As usual Abby was rocking the different bathing suit every day :) like I have said before it is so much more fun to buy them for her.

We love going to the bay while we are there. There is always awesome things to see and do, and the fact that we can catch our dinner is a plus also :) we got enough scallops to feed both families.  We also found loads of Sand dollars, the friends with us had never found them before so we schooled them on it and soon they had tons to take home with them as souvenirs! They loved chasing and catching the little crabs as you can see Abby is not afraid of them:) The twins dad also managed to scoop up a Puffer fish and the kids thought it was great, that is it in the net Abby is holding it up.

We took them to our favorite places to eat down there and Wyatt really enjoyed showing the boys his crab leg cracking skills :) We love seafood and love showing others how good it can be if eaten at the right place.

I also managed to force Shane and the kids into another photo shoot while there :) I actually got some good ones of the kids believe it or not!
