I'm Back!!!!!!

Hi all,
I am home.  We had a great time.  I don't know if anyone has ever been to Cape Cod or not, but it is a great place for the family, there is so much to do.  The first day, we were going to go take the ferry to Martha's Vinyard, but all the weather reports were saying that it was going to extremely hot and humid, so we decided to go to the beach for the day instead.  We drove down to the cape, over the bridge (let me just let you all know right now, that I have an unbelieveable extreme case and fear of heights, and going over bridges, especially bridges over water) anyway, we went to the beach, paid the $30 to park, stepped out the door, and found that the weather at the beach was at least 20 degrees cooler than it was when we left, but we were determined to spend the day at the beach.  We lugged all the blankets, towels, sunblock, and the cooler from the parking lot, to the beach, spread out the blankets, fixed them till everything looked perfect.  We then applied sunblock on everything that the sun would shine on, and we all spead out for our "perfect" day at the beach. After about 5 mins, we were frozen, the sun went away, and the wind was blowing, it was miserable!!  My son Jason went for a little walk to feel the water, and needless to say, he came right back!  The sun poked in and out all day, and we went from hot to cold right along with it.  After my son and my husband came back from a walk, and they came back to the blanket to find my daughter Amanda, and me wrapped up in every available towel and blanket that we brought.  That was the end of our day at the beach!!  From the beach we headed to check into our hotel. We had the generic 2 double beds, the dresser, the little round table and 2 chairs.  We all just dropped on the bed (comforter removed of course) I once saw a Dateline episode where they took a black light to comforters of different hotels, and that is one of those things that you wish you never saw!  I also don't walk on the rugs in the hotel barefoot either.  We then all took showers, and the kids were starving, especially Amanda, ever since she came home from college, she wants to eat dinner at 5:00.  It drives me crazy!!! To keep her happy, we went to dinner at 5:00 on the nose, and we were there with 3 other tables, the only ones however without white hair!! I of course got sick during dinner, and had to leave the restaurant and run to my hotel room.  When everyone else finished dinner, they came back to the room to see if I was still alive, and I felt much better, so we headed out to a Cape Cod league Baseball game, which was a lot of fun, and my son won a raffle at the game for a free dinner on Wednesdays, or on a Saturday.  Keep in mind that the night of the game was Wednesday, and we were leaving on Friday :(  Just my luck!! HAHA) so we gave it to the man next to us, he was very nice, and if i had to guess, I would guess that he was 8 months pregnant and expecting twins!!!! Either that, or he loved to eat! Which explained why when we gave it to him he said " I know EXACTLY where that is"  and all of a sudden Amanda and Jason broke out laughing.,  I was desperately trying to get them to stop, and the more I tried that louder they got, and then Paul started in!! I took that as a clue that it was time to go!! When we got back to the hotel, they had a DJ playing music out on the courtyard which was right outside of our window.  The started playing this game where he would play a little piece of a song, and you had to name the song, and who sang it.  Now this is a game that we play all the time when we have a long ride.  Paul would put a song on the radio in the car, and the first one who guesses right gets a point.  Paul is increddibly good at this game, and everytime no one would answer, he would go crazy, because he knew the answer.  So my son Jason would say "Dad lets go down and play" and paul would say Oh no, that is for the younger people, and we would say, are you sure?? Well he was sure, till the next song that someone didn't answer, and then it would start all over again!!! It was so funny!! So for the next couple of days, we did the touristy things, and had an Awesome time!!!!  Karen♥
