Oh, take me back, take me back. We had such a great vacation just a short couple of weeks ago. We usually do a week long beach vacation each Summer but this year, we added 4 days because Peter had to work in Avalon, NJ the weekend before we headed to Rehoboth. It actually worked out perfectly.
Peter worked Friday and Saturday mornings and the kids and I explored the hotel and places nearby. We had a little bit of fun while he was working 😉
The kids have as much fun being fancy as I do 🙂 Each evening we had a family friendly dinners. Friday night, there was a crazy amount of rain that came very quickly while we were on our way to a colleague of Peter’s home. Well, we were already half way there, so no amount of rain or flooding was going to stop us…….
Yep, that happened!!!!
On Sunday, we took a ferry from Cape May, NJ to Lewes, DE…it may have been the highlight of the 10 days for the kids. If you have the opportunity to take the ferry, especially with kids, please do!!
They even had the biggest popsicles ever!!
Next was BEACH TIME in Rehoboth…our happy place!!
We shared a house with my bestie Kelley and her family. This is the 3rd year going with them and each year we have more fun!! AND, another bestie, Carin, has permanently moved to Rehoboth and has opened a pilates studio. We were able to take a couple of her classes including a FLOAT class. So. Much. FUN.
Dewey, the neighboring beach puts on Smores on the Beach each week. We did not miss out!!
One thing I look forward to each year, regardless of what beach we are vacationing at is riding bikes as a family. It is just so relaxing to me. We did it a lot this year towards the end of the week. We took the bikes to get ice cream one afternoon, the perfect way to end the day.
The following afternoon, we rode to FUNLAND. We try and hit FUNLAND one afternoon each year. More than that is usually too much for Peter and I 😉 But, the kids just have a blast!!
My gosh, each time I look at these pictures, I am reminded of how amazing the memories you make at moments like these, truly last a lifetime!! Do you see those faces?!?!
We also had so much fun catching up with Carin and her family. As much as I ADORE Carin, Matti Jane LOVES Carin’s daughter Emery just as much!!
The final full day there we braved the paddle boards in the Atlantic Ocean. Maybe a mistake, but one I can laugh at now. It was pretty rough out there, but for some reason I found the courage to head out. Notice I am laughing at myself as I am coming back in since I did fall in (whomp whomp whomp).
Dad of the Year as they were watching dolphins the whole time!!
Our last morning there, we grabbed yummy donuts for breakfast. The kids were clearly in heaven!!
Until next year, Rehoboth…
