Family Vacation


We have just returned from our summer vacation. We haven't been to Cape Cod, Massachusetts in about 12 years. So this summer we decided to take the kids. We rented a home in Chatham near the beach. What I loved the most about the area were the numerous Hydrangeas all over the place. There wasn't a home without them! I thought I would share some pics of the beautiful area.



The house we stayed in had a name - Serenity Shores


Every summer, we take pics of the kids wearing white on the beach. Sometimes I print them in black and white, sometimes color. This is one of my favorites!


I have always wanted to see Martha's Vineyard, so we took the ferry over and had dinner there. Here is a pic of a street in Edgartown, such a quaint and beautiful area!

Those hydrangeas are gorgeous. I just love them. I planted two new bushes this spring called Endless Summer. My old bush didn't have many blooms this summer and I was so disappointed. The photo of your children is just precious. What a wonderful vacation.

What beautiful flowers. I have never been able to get these to grow in my yard. Too much shade, too much sun, oh well, I can enjoy your pictures.

I wish my hydrangeas would turn out that way. They are HUGE, but they never seem to flower... maybe the soil is not rich enough?


Anyway, you have a lovely family.
