We got home from down the shore yesterday afternoon! We spent a week with my inlaws at their home in Rehoboth Beach, DE!
Chris and I have enjoyed going to the Delaware shore since before we were married. It's nice to continue on our little tradition every year with the kids!
It was hot and humid all week, up until Friday then the humidity and temp dropped! It stormed every night which was perfect because we could still do what we wanted to during the day! It was very relaxing! The shore was perfect! The kids enjoyed themselves. Jack got blasted by some waves a few times but loved it! This is the first year that he's really been able to enjoy it. Last year he basically just took naps on the beach! Macy, of course, made friends right away, she's my little social butterfly! She makes friends everywhere we go, within minutes of arriving! They "surfed" on their boogie boards. She also got her first tatoo, a Hello Kitty on her upper left arm.
Chris and I went out just about every night, sans kids! We hit up our favorite local microbrewery as well as some shopping and walking the boardwalk, plus hitting the bookstores and Starbucks! A trip down there isn't complete without going to the land and sea buffet at the Rusty Rudder in Dewey. Who can resist all you can eat crab legs and steamed clams? Well, Chris can, but I ate his fair share!
Macy and I had some girly shopping time, Jack and I went to get fresh donuts and hoagies and Daddy and Macy went on a pirate ship adventure! It was very relaxing! Now we can't wait for our next vacation in less than a month!! Not exactly sure what we are doing for that one yet, probably do the opposite and go to the mountains!
Here are some pics from the first few days of the trip. I will post more tomomorrow or Tuesday!

The kid cousins at a cookout with Chris's aunt and her family. We haven't seen many of them in about 5 years and it's the first time for us to meet the 2 youngest girl cousins!
Jack and his cousin, Jordan. He just loved her!
I've got a lot of scrapping to do now that I'm home, plus a lot of catching up to do on the blogs I read!! Time to get back into the swing of things!!
