We had a good couple of days away over a long weekend. The kids had a great time down the shore. I didn’t realize it, but this was Wyatt’s first time at the beach. He loved playing in the sand (he kept asking to go back to the sandbox), but wasn’t too crazy about the ocean. Max, on the other hand, practically grew fins, and almost lost his shorts to a particularly randy wave.
We also hit the Cape May Zoo, but lost a little steam when we realized that we showed up an hour before they opened. Luckily there was a playground, which kept the wee ones happy, but then the humidity hit, and crankiness set in. The kids weren’t that happy, either.
The next day, we headed up to Storybook Land, which I would highly recommend to anyone with toddlers/preschoolers. Max could go on every single ride, and with the exception of the Bubbles the Roller Coaster, Wyatt could, too. And the rides aren’t totally boring for adults, either. The other great thing is that, although there’s not a lot of indoor activities (i.e., air conditioning), there is a small splash park for the kids, and almost the entire park is beautifully landscaped and shaded by mature trees.
By midday, despite everyone being tired and in meltdown mode, Max still wanted to pose for this picture:
All in all, it was a fun time, albeit too short, but isn’t every vacation too short?
