Being on the water was so relaxing. We saw gorgeous waterfront homes, a couple of big oil tanker barges and picturesque lighthouses. J even spotted several Amtrak trains running along the river.
Last year it was just the three of us, so I'm glad we invited my dad and M to join us.
We got there early but it's a perfect area to have to kill some time. Here I am with my mom and dad waiting to board the boat - walking along by the marina near all of the boats.
J and Grammie took a walk down to the trolley museum (it was closed). The kids even got to feed some ducks.
The boat ride was dubbed "Kids Cruise" and they had music playing and a magic show. K was thrilled to be the magician's assistant.
Grandparents, a boat ride, ice cream and a magic show... what more could you want?
Even though I'm pretty worn out from ten days of almost nonstop recreation/vacation, and I have an annoying summer cold/sore throat, I won't let that get me down. There is no room for cancer on a day like today when the sun is shining, my kids are laughing and we were able to make more happy memories with my family.
Kicking cancer's ass, indeed!
