Headed To The Cape!

August 8, 2008

We are packed up and we are heading out tonight.....next stop.....Cape Cod, Mass! It will be a long ride but well worth it when we sink our feet into that white sand and smell the ocean air.......an entire week of rest and relaxation......surrounded by family and friends........there is no better way to end our summer then with one last hoorah at the beach!!



We are renting a house that we have never stayed in before.......it is always interesting when you book a place online....not being able to see it in person. Since we do have family in the area, we had them do a drive by and everyone said that it looked just fine.....the owner emailed me some pictures so I could see the inside......it is a new place and this is the first year they are renting it out, so I am positive everything will be clean and livable!! They also say that it is only 100 yards from the beach.....I hope it is because with Sarah, we will be hauling a lot of stuff!

This will be Sarah's first official beach week and we are so anxious to see how she reacts to the sand and the ocean water......we are prepared with shovels and buckets and plenty of things to keep her occupied.....not to mention plenty of suncreen to keep her....oh so Irish skin from burning!

The boys are excited to see the rest of their cousins.....they are making big plans to build sand castles, and break out the skim and boogie boards in the water! Nick and Eddie also look forward to the night we go to the concert becuase they get to stay home with my nieces, who are in high school, so they are in charge, but the boys feel like they are home without a sitter....it is a fun night for all!

I am leaving you all with a preview of the Saw Doctors concert we are going to on Thursday night.....as I have mentioned before, this is one of the highlights of our trip each year and we so look forward to it........the pre-party has been planned and the bus has been ordered(no drinking and driving).........the jello shots are sure to be flowing or should I say jiggling....and by the way, I ordered "the shirt" and it will be making its debut the night of the concert!

Be sure to check back......I will be posting our Cape Cod happenings..........not only did I pack the camera, but the video camera is making the trip too........

Is Sarah more excited about her first beach weekend or is Mommy? I could hardly wait to get Bella toes in the sand!!!

Please take lots of pictures and any places you go to that really stand out please let me know. We are 'hoping' to go next September and it will be my first time ever going to the Cape.

Hi Lisa,

I wish I was going too! I finally had two seconds literally to listen to them and they're awesome. I'm sure you'll have a wonderful time. We're actually in the process of finding a beach resort to take the girlies too in early October, Sarah will love it! Enjoy! Can't wait to see your pics when you get back!
