Cape Cod 2012

Monday, August 27, 2012

I went to Cape Cod several weeks ago, but finally just got an email with the pictures from my MIL...and wanted to share!

First is me doing one of my absolute favorite activities, boogie boarding.:)

Next we have the gloomy gray beach. Notice nobody else is in the water that day except me. :)The waves were big and super choppy, and it was raining a little.

Here's my surfer boy, AKA Mr. SeppieSusan.

Here's the two of us. I thought I could still get away with wearing that bikini despite the fact that one side's underwire mysteriously disappeared. I had a friend suggest I just take out the underwire on the other side because it's pretty obvious. Duly noted.

Here he looks naked.:) But he's not!:)

MIL (on right) and I catching a wave.:)

Mother and son.. a rare shot of him boogie boarding (he's usually either on a surf board or not in the water, period):

The annual puzzle...not quite done! Plus a very lazy boy:

I don't want summer to end! :(

This evening I went for a 40-minute, 3.3 mile jog, and then Jess and I made spring rolls for the first time ever! It was easier than I'd expected and different, delicious, and healthy. We soaked each wrapper (and doubled them because they ripped easily), then put in a filling made of stir-fried carrot, mushroom, garlic, onion, and mint, and rice noodles. We also improvised a sauce made of soy sauce, white wine, garlic, vinegar, mint, ketchup, mustard, peanut oil, and brown sugar. Kind of cool to try something different.

    I LOVE homemade spring rolls! Looks like you had fun at the Cape (is that what the cool kids call it?). Glad to see you back on Spark as well. I'm glad I'm not the only one has gone away and come back. Have a great day tomorrow!

    Thanks for sharing the pics, it looks like you had a blast! UM, you're awful brave in that water because it did look mighty cold and the wave pretty HUGE!

    I laughed at the "he looks naked but he's not" comment and then I scrolled down to the comments to see that I'm not alone. Also, side note: you look great, especially in the last pic. Summers always go by so quickly... I'm not looking forward to the cold weather fall brings.

Luckily I re-read that...hahahaha.

Thanks for sharing your relaxing vacation with us- I like puzzles- I usually do them over Thanksgiving week-end or Christmas- when its cold out :-)

    I love that you guys do a "annual" puzzle, we did one when we went on vacation to Lake Tahoe 2 years ago and we came so close to finishing but couldnt quite get it done..with 4 of us working on it tediously every night for 5 figures we got like a 1000 pieces puzzle lol it was too pretty to pass up of the caribbean while it was 45 degrees outside and snowing lol

I have to agree with the previous comment, that dress looks phenomenal on you, real pretty! I love his lazy come hither stare though..fantastic! : ) xooox

    Gosh you are soooo gorgeous! :D Not to sound like a creeper ;-) ha!

Ugh that puzzle is my worst possible nightmare. When I was a kid, my mom used to FORCE me to try and do puzzles, but I hated them so much I always got out of them. I still hate them. ;-)

Looks like a blast!

Also, I love that your puzzling methods look as nerdy and anal as mine!
