The Annual Trek

When we were looking at houses in Delaware, we considered Lewes but the girls said No! It's magical and if you move there it might lose its magic. So we are where we are and we still make the short trek to Cape Henlopen for our family camping trip.  It's still magical and I love living so close that I can go any day of the week, even though I don't.  I hope to head back this week for a paddle on the bay with the dolphins.
This week though:

The two of us took two cars, two kayaks, 12 chairs, 4 bikes, one paddleboard, one dog and a pop up that sleeps 6 people and 3 dogs fairly well.
 Li'l Sis and boys joined us for a day but spent the night at our house (see! close enough!)

Audge and Noah joined us Monday night
A new family joined us, My Handsome Prince's cousin, her man and children.  We grafittied their reservation, how could we not?
We played a little in the dunes
We coveted this camper (it matched the truck perfectly!) and posed it as if it were towing, and yes, we had permission.
I had a partner in crime though we never made it to the LYS.  I will be picking bits of pine out of my baktus scarf forever.

Some snoozed
Emma, Chris and Apple Sunshine arrived Thursday and completed our gang
We cooked over the fire

 We took fun family portraits, played games, climbed the observation tower, walked, walked, walked, had a mini shower off, shoppy shoped in town,  braved the beach several times despite the wind, and made the trip to DQ only once

And ended on Father's Day out on our deck, freshly showered, smelling sweet, grillin' and chillin'

And for the record, Lola enjoyed her first camping trip.
