So.. our August trip down the Cape has come and gone. Wow, this trip absolutely flew by… super womp. We tried our best to soak up as much fun as possible, seeing as this is the last big Summer trip. For me that means to sunbath and drink by the ocean… ahh yeas, my vacation style is pretty simple.
Our time together was great; the kids had a lot of fun being kids swimming, collecting fish and shells, and we had a lot of fun relaxing, laughing and being on vacation mode. My parents came down for the day, which was fun and a nice way to end our trip. On that same day my in laws, who were staying close by, came to visit too. The kids were super happy about them all together to see them swim and do their pool tricks. I was sort of nervous, cause we have never had anyone visit us over the past 6 years of going to that resort. They are pretty strict about that stuff, but it was pretty great. My parents loved it and talked about renting a room next year… which would be a lot of fun. I love my family so much, you can see it on my face in the below pics.
The one snag this trip is that we had to change rooms..TWICE. I know, it sounds like a huge pain but it wasn’t a huge issue because the rooms we ended up in were dreamy. I honestly have no idea what happened, but the short of it is that our original room (ocean view) was booked that Sunday, so they hooked us up with beachfront view that first night. Sick right? Then for some reason that last night they contacted us to say they were moving us to a beach/river side view because someone had a complaint and wanted their old room,which is where we were staying (when? I have no idea). Uhm, a free upgrade again? Sure I am game! We don’t spend that much time in the rooms anyways, and they moved our stuff for us while we were at the beach, so that didn’t hurt much either. I loved everything about each move, so none of us were complaining. (Ok, I may have bitched a tiny bit till I got to that sick room that last day haha)
So here is our trip in photos.. each one is captioned.
Thanks for reading!

THEN…cause no trip for my children is set till we get blizzrds
driving back to the resort we saw the best sunsets..
