Cape May & Lancaster 2012
This year our vacation was awesome! Can you believe it was only 4 days? But it was 4 great days of spending time together as a family. Julia and Mark are at the perfect age for enjoying life and exploring and not being afraid or timid around new places or people. The kids loved the beach and the pool at Cape May, and we took them to a special restaurant to celebrate our 9 years of marriage: The Lobster House...known for excellent seafood! I wish I was feeling better because I ate about two bites of my lobster and scallop dish and I know I missed out. Good thing John was able to enjoy his crab cakes. The kids enjoyed chocolate milk and burger and fries, and mark had noodles and sauce.
We headed to Lancaster on Thursday...Thursday was a difficult day for us. I was feeling awful. And we had a 4 hour car ride there because of traffic and a business call. We were all anxious to get out of the car. But by the time we got to our awesome hotel with an indoor and an outdoor pool, all was forgiven and our little fish were happily swimming non stop!
The kids napped a bit as we pushed them in their strollers and we headed back to the hotel for some more rest and pool time. After the pool we headed to our favorite Amish spot the Good & Plenty.
Saturday we headed to Dutch Wonderland where every kid gets to be a kid! I'm talking bumper cars, kettle popcorn, rollercoasters, face painting and real live princesses.
And the best part was...
When we drove home on Saturday I had a craving for Olive Garden salad...and my husband brought us there. I had three bowls of salad...so good!
We had a great family vacation. Can't wait to see what next summer will bring!
