Here's what we've been up to:
After a horrendous trip where I had to pretend to Ella that we got on the first plan "for practice" (weather, then mechanical issues, then a cancellation), we spent a couple of days in Jim's home town. Swimming in the pool, resting up, and eating my favorite ice cream ever. Probably good for my ass that I have to travel 1000 miles to get it.
|Marian got her first taste of ice cream|
|I think she was a fan too|
Then it was off to Cape Cod, where we did a whole lot of nothing. Well, the kids did some of this:
|Her beloved yellow float. She hasn't been in it since she was 8 months old yet it was like they had never been parted.|
Of course, I had to get in on the action:
|Such a rough life|
We did take a break from bumming around on floats to try and catch fish.
|Quite possibly my new favorite picture|
Then after all that hard work, we had to lounge around some more.
|Marian finally got a turn in the baby float|
Naturally, there were lobsters. And naturally, we had to play with our food first.
|The one on the right was quite the beast. Pulled off its own leg.|
Stuffed full of yummy seafood, it was onto sailing the seas. Marian was quite the fan of the life jacket. Not.
|This is about as happy as she got on the boat|
It was a wonderful vacation and it made me wish we lived closer so we could visit more often. Until next time...
|A rare moment without the kids|
|Being sweet together. Or possibly pushing Marian around with the thought that if she helped, Marian would be done with her turn sooner|
|Ah, if only she could paddle me around|
