We’re back from Cape May! We had such a wonderful time being away for a few days. The weather wasn’t as great as we were hoping for, but it really didn’t matter. The best thing was that we were all together! Genevieve absolutely loved being on vacation. She would wake up every morning, find her shoes, run to the door and say “bye bye.” The girl knows how to have fun.
We did get to go in the pool the first and second days that we were there. We were really happy about that because we wanted Genevieve to have a chance to go swimming. She really loved being in the water. Even when her lips were blue she didn’t want to get out!
Genevieve loved splashing around the water. There was a window right outside our room that faced the pool and the ocean and every time we would walk out there and see it Genevieve would start squealing! All she wanted to do was go back there.
We had a nice time on Tuesday just sitting by the side of the pool for a little bit after Genevieve did some swimming. The sun was out and it ended up being a lovely day. We were blessed to have a little sunshine to break up all the clouds and rain we’ve been having.
We got a lot done on Tuesday actually because Genevieve woke up SUPER early! First we had breakfast outside.
Then we walked on the beach.
We took a ride over to the Cape May Zoo. It is a really beautiful zoo with lots of animals that you get to see up close. The most memorable thing for all of us was definitely the lion. This guy walked out of his little house, right up to the fence and started roaring like he was putting on a show. It was pretty amazing to be so close to that majestic creature and hear that powerful roar. It scared Genevieve- she hung on to John and said “all done,” but now she talks about that lion all the time. (and the crocodile!) I took a video of the lion roaring and Genevieve loved watching it when we got home.
The zoo was so pretty and after all that we still got to go back to the hotel and go in the pool for a bit.
Wednesday we went to the airplane museum. That was pretty fun. They had some nice hands-on exhibits that Genevieve was able to enjoy.
Here she is with the wind blowing on her! She was having a blast!
More to come…
