Just the Three Of Us: Wildwood

Towards the end of August.. which now seems like a lifetime ago, we planned a little beach getaway. The main purpose of this getaway was to getaway from H. I was in the process of trying to wean him meaning he was being super clingy.. D on the other hand was in need of some attention and extra loving.. so we spent a few nights in Wildwood while grand parents took care of the little one. Thank God for grand parents.

We with some hesitation we picked a motel close to the beach.. The Blue Palms Resort. The motel was made up of the main building with a large pool and a small side building with a small pool. We opted for the  small side building and it turned out perfectly. While everyone flocked to the larger pool we most of the time had the smaller pool to ourselves.. total win.

We started our mornings off at the beach, afternoons in the pool, we squeezed in a nap and then spent the night on the boardwalk. It was just what we needed.. the water was perfect, the beach not too crowded.

The morning of our return we decided to first head a little further south and drive through the much talked about Cape May. We now see what all the fuss is about.. the beaches pristine, the water endless and so quite it was almost eerie, it was beautiful. D spotted the lighthouse from a distance and his interest made us take yet another detour from home and we headed to the lighthouse. Built in 1859 and continues operation to this day, with 199 steps to the top.

We headed out sometime before noon, stopping for a quick bite to eat before returning back home. While H was greatly missed, we are glad we got a chance to spend some quality time with D.

What a great thing to do. It must have been good for all of you - H could have the break he needed to effectively wean and D had a chance to be the only child again for a little while. It looks like you had a lot of fun. I love D's face in the photo with the pancakes, he looks like he can't wait to dig in! So cute. I hope you're having a good week so far, Hena.

Very cute! I love that you took time to spend with just child as well - I think kids love that every once in awhile - and then you can do the same for the other down the road :)

What a nice time, and a special trip for D! I bet he enjoyed being the center of attention. How did the baby handle your absence? :)

Such precious moments! Those pancakes look divine! As a middle child in a family of three girls, I lived for moments like this when I could have Mom and Dad all to myself!

This is such an adorable idea--all kids need a little one-on-one attention from time to time. How special for both of your kiddos!
