Our Day-Trip summer continued with a trip to Cape Cod to see our Cousin/Nephew Ned at Grandma & Grandpa's house. Ned is here in Massachusetts attending summer camp and we were eager to see him for the first time since last year. Ned is 11 now and just a few months younger than Georgia.
Henry and Josie had two things they wanted to do while at their grandparents' house: They wanted to spend time catching up with Ned and they wanted to spend more time with Ned while swimming with him in the pond.
Grandma has a new water toy - a large, blow-up raft - and the kids were eager to try it out.
The raft took a little time to be inflated.
but it was worth the time, since it was big enough for all three children to use at the same time which created a great opportunity for some cousin-ly bonding.
The night was gorgeous and the sunset was magnificent. I took a few artsy photos before I surrendered in the battle with the mosquitos (they were winning) and went inside.
These are the situations where a good telephoto lens comes in handy.
It was great to see Ned. Ned is a fun boy and so easy to talk to: he has a lot of great interests and a good sense of humor. We enjoyed our time with him and the grandparents.
It was another great trip.
