cape may, part 1.

Monday, January 14, 2013

all four of the big kids were in florida last week.  they got to hang out for the week with all their cousins.  it was a really special treat for them as these cousins live in minnesota (they're cousins from their mom's side of the family) and they don't get to see each other nearly enough.  despite the fact that a stomach bug went through 16 out of 17 of the cousins (!!), they had a great time.  

while they were there, steve, parker, and i took off for new jersey.  my sister kate just had a baby girl about a month ago!  i've been itching to see her, and this quiet week seemed like the best opportunity.  steve's still off--ahh, the vacation of a professor!--so it was perfect.

i took sooooo many pictures.  i couldn't help myself.  baby nora, quinn and parker playing (and i could do a week's worth of posts of just the two of them playing.  i won't.  but i could!   it was adorable.), my mom and parker, cape may, the beautiful congress hall.  let's just say that we frequented the brown room at congress hall more than our share.  red wine and delicious apps!  i could make a habit of that place.

it was a great time.  my dad had just retired, my mom made deeelicious dinners (this is on the docket here now.  it was so good.), the weather was so mild, and there was a new baby to celebrate.  

all good things.  hear hear!

    Any chance that can be shipped this way?

  15. How awesome are the long breaks of teachers and professors?!
    What a beautiful place. Despite my need for warm weather, I find the east coast so charming and rich in history ...and food.
