We just completed a successful weekend at the cape. It was a success in many ways. First the weather worked with us – despite rain forecast for every day. This allowed two great beach days and lots of walks and bike rides. I for one, have a nice brownish red glow – I no longer look like someone who sits infront of a computer day and night (which I do). A second achievement of the weekend: mama and papa had some private time to celebrate our anniversary. We were married eight years ago today. It was celebrated with above average food (hard to find on the cape), wine, a magarita, and key lime pie. This trip felt like a success because we managed our kids instead of them bullying us around. They both slept well, ate well, enjoyed the beach, enjoyed the car rides (strategic timing of driving to coincide with exhaustion kids is key to that).
