day one – sun rays

Hello everybody! It’s day two here at the Cape, but the photo I’m sharing was from day one. Your best bet for following along with us on vacation is to keep an eye on my Flickr page, because I’ll be uploading photos every day but I won’t be posting all of them on the Big DumpTruck.

Yesterday the humidity followed us down to the Cape, and it was just gross-sticky, but today it’s GAW-JUSS down here. The kids and my BIL and Sister went for a bike ride, and I took a walk down to one of the little beaches where I got fantastic photos last year. This morning there were too many boats to get a good shot (I’ll take what I can get, if I’m stuck with the 2005 photos, that’s okay) but I found a little field with all these amazing flowers in them!


Signs Are Looking Good

We're on the road to the Cape and my first official "Vacation" photo was
of an ice cream man at the drive up at McDonalds. You just *know*
vacation will rock when that's how it starts!


A Packing I Will Go

Packing to go on vacation = fun and exciting because the whole vacation is just a week of possibilities waiting on the golden horizon.

Packing to come home = sucks.

We are doing the former. In a week, we do the latter. I will have my laptop with me to pull photos off my camera, and apparently the house has wifi, so you may just have something to read/look at over the course of the week, depending on how often I pull out the laptop.

I know you’re going to miss me, so I’m going to remind you of a game I rediscovered (via a bookmark I made of it) so that you can keep busy. Idle minds being the devil’s workshop and all.


Happy Fun Food

You can have my 100 Calorie Lorna Doone shortbread cookie crisps when you pry them from my cold, dead hands.

What you have here are animal crackers for grownups, people. Do you hear me? 100 calorie packs of sweet, buttery goodness.

Go. You can thank me later.
