Off to Bethany Beach for Our Annual Family Vacation!

Ken and I were up by 6 AM, made a cooked breakfast, and finished loading the CRV.  We were on our way to the beach by 7:30, earlier than we had planned - imagine that!

It was a very nice morning for driving, but traffic was rather heavy in certain areas.  We did stop twice for drinks and the bathroom arriving in Bethany around 12:15.  Instead of taking the normal 3+ hours, it took us over 4 1/2. Check-in time for the condo was 2, but when we stopped by the rental office it was already cleaned and ready to "move in"!  Ken and I went next door to one of our favorite places to eat in the area, Cottage Cafe, for lunch.  It was a restaurant we often went to when we owned our condo in Ocean City.  As per usual, it was delicious.

We picked up the key and were at the Condo by 1:30 and the unloading and unpacking began.  Jamie's family arrived around 2:30 and we helped them settle in.  Ken and I played games with Bria and Cali while Dane and Jamie went to the grocery store.  They had spent the last 7 days vacationing at Dane's parents vacation home in Rehobeth Beach, so they wanted to get the necessary groceries for their family.

We decided to "eat-in" and had a rotisserie chicken, fresh corn on the cob, and salads.  We were able to eat outside on the deck and it was a delightful evening.  We did more game playing with the gir s and then Ken, Jamie and I started working on a 550 piece puzzle.  That should keep us busy for a while.  Bria and Cali were in bed by 9 and then the 4 of us played a game of Hand and Foot which the women won by a huge margin!  We were in bed by 11:45 fairly late for these old folks!

It was a fun 1st day of family vacation!
