We've been away for the past week. We drove many hours to Cape May Point, NJ for a vacation with JP's sister and brother-in-law. Between rain and riptides, we were unable to get in the water for the first 2 days. After that, we managed bike rides or beach trips in between rain showers. One rainy day, we visited the nearby Air Museum. JP's sister offered to take the girls to the zoo one morning so that JP and I could have a morning to ourselves. We decided to go out to watch "Superman", while it poured into the open windows of our van. Our wi-fi went out on the first day, so despite my intentions, I was unable to blog from the beach house. Because of traffic, the 7-8 hour drive home actually took us 11 hours.
Overall, it was a nice time away. We had fun, even though it was a bit different than we had planned. We returned to knee high grass in the yard and 6 loads of laundry. We also brought home about 35 lbs of sweet cherries, that are now cooling in 21 quart jars on the kitchen counter. The dogs, cats and chickens all did well in our absence. Tomorrow we must return with a jolt to reality. Sigh...how can the time fly by so quickly?
