Week 39 (September 22nd-September 28): Friends & Family

Posted on

As a family that doesn’t often get to see friends and family, we really hit the jackpot this week! A trip to Cape May at the beginning of the week gave us time with our good friends, Jim & Joan (our most gracious hosts!) and Granny & Great Mom mom & Jeff’s aunts. We also got to spend time with Jeff’s cousin & his family—a first for us. Caroline & Liam made instant friends with their new cousins. What a great trip with time spent at the beach, on the boardwalk, and making new memories.

The end of the week brought us visitors from away. The Hardy family came all the way from China….Maine (sorry, I couldn’t resist!). Caroline & Liam were certain that the Hardy children were also cousins. The time flew by but I think it’s safe to say we all had a great time (I won’t mention the meltdowns that each kid managed to fit in). And I can brag that my friend Angela ran in the Hampton’s Half Marathon while here and beat her personal record. Yay, Angela!

How did I manage to get a picture of Jim but not Joan? Seems to happen every trip.  Maybe next year she should drive the tractor!

Yes. I made my son do the Karate Kid pose.  Someday he'll appreciate it.

Camera ready! She NEVER wants to pose for pictures.  Must be the Jersey girl in her coming out!

I always say September is the best month for hanging at the beach!
