Vacation Day #5

Sunday was our relaxing day. When we woke up it was raining so we just decided to go do some laundry. It is really amazing how much laundry a family a five can go through in a couple of days. The laundromat was a new experience for us and it took us a while to figure it out, get the zillion amount of quarters ready we needed (we decided at $10 a load we need to open one ourselves), and finally get our laundry going. The kids were amazed by the machines and sat there almost the entire time watching them. I was amazed at how many clothes you can get into one of those industrial machines (yes I want one!).

We then wanted to walk around downtown Gloucester to see the local artwork even though it was pouring down rain. We went and bought the kids rain ponchos (they only had adult ones) and so it looked like we were walking 3 little ducks.

After we were soaking wet we went back to the hotel to dry up. The ocean in front of our hotel was so beautiful because the waves were crashing up against the rocks about 25 feet up. When the rain finally stopped we decided to go find another beach. It was sooooo, soooooo, soooooo cold that we stayed about 5 minutes. Paige and Jaxson didn't notice the cold because they kept racing on the sand.

Since we were freezing, it was Sunday night and not much to do, we decided to go to the Cheesecake Factory. We had the best family dinner we have ever had there and Jaxson and Paige had us laughing so hard we couldn't even talk to the waitress. The waitress was even about ready to roll on the floor from laughing at them. Honestly I think we had the best service that night you could ever get because the waitress wanted to keep coming back to see what silly things they were doing or saying at the time. Anyone that knows Jaxson knows he is a total showboat and when you get him and Paige going together it is beyond funny. Not to mention they were crazy about each other that night and kept hugging saying "I love you my twin."

I LOVE my family!!!
