We left early Friday morning and drove to Marion to pick up Seth from camp. He had been at Rookie Camp for church with a bunch of other 2nd and 3rd graders. It was great to see him, hug him and have him with us.
We were then headed east....Grant had his new DVD player and traveling went well.
We drove through rain almost the entire day....saw more rain while driving than I've seen all summer. We didn't make any reservations for stopping...since we had no idea how the boys, particularly Grant would do. After a pretty good day...we stopped for the night in Frederick, Maryland at a great hotel.
We were up early again to get on the road in hopes of beating the weekend beach traffic over the Chesapeake Bay. No luck...we ran into lots of traffic...which caused us to miss our 12:00 ferry reservation. Luckily, we were able to get on the 12:45. Finally....we were really on our way to Cape May. It was a very frustrating, long drive on Saturday from 8-12...felt longer than the 12 hour drive on Friday.
Pirate Pete was there
It didn't take long for Seth to get wet and enjoy the waves.
Then...back to the arcade...this time to share a ride with cousin Nia.
After blowing the allotment for the night...we took a walk and had our nightly ice cream treat! A beautiful walk back home along the ocean shore, with a cool breeze and the smell of salt air! LOVE IT! Finished unpacking and climbed in bed....anxious for a great week at one of our favorite spots with our whole family!
