Typing away on the laptop with the baby in arm at an WiFi Pizzeria in Chatham, Cape Cod, MA. Life is good (though typing is a bit difficult.) My shoes are filled with sand and Atlantic salt water from a mishap photo op; the soggy feeling makes me happy. Aunt Ruth and Uncle Tom have Wilder at the Cape Cod condo (in Harwich) while Brian, Waverley and I have the afternoon off to explore. So far we've made it to Chatham and we've been captivated. Oh, the stories to share from the shop owners, the pictures of the coast (and now the soggy tennis shoes as a result.) It's been amazing.
Today we had clam chowder and a seafood bisque/chowder. I savored EVERY BITE. And the crab cakes -ugh! A-MAZING. Aunt Ruth knows where to get the best bites on the coast.
I don't have near enough time at the moment to catch you up, but we're loving our trip and all the family time. Seeing the cousins for the first time in over 10 years, and now having our kids play together -it's priceless.
Today is Aunt Ruth's birthday and she has given us the most wonderful gift of time with her. Happy birthday, Aunt Ruth! We have been so blessed by you.
Photos? Oh, you want to know where the photos are! Check the Flickr set -I've uploaded some more, though they are a few days behind. Still from our first day in New York. But we'll be keeping you posted when we can!
