Day 1 of our Vacation!

After a long start to our summer with a late end to my school year, moving out of one house, staying in temporary homes, and then finally getting settled into our new home, we had the opportunity to get away for a few days thanks to some gift cards (thanks Brian and Maureen and mom and dad!) that we have been saving. We headed up to Hyannis in Cape Cod for two days and then one night in Cambridge just outside of Boston. I'm going to break up the trip in different posts because we have a picture overload!

On Friday morning we loaded up the car and headed out at 5:30am. Colin was originally not happy to be disturbed...

...but you should have seen him 10 minutes after this picture was taken. He was all smiles and talking up a storm because he was just so excited to be spending 4 days with his Mommy and Daddy!

We made great time after only having to stop for breakfast and arrived at our hotel around lunch time. Colin was so good in the car and slept for a good amount of the time. He was so happy to try out our king sized bed...

I wasn't the craziest about having Colin roll around the hotel floor (even though that changed the next day), and he can't be trusted on the bed alone, so Colin spent some time playing with his toys in his bed.

We just relaxed our 1st afternoon, and then got ready to go out to a nice restaurant about 40 minutes away (thanks to a recommendation by Colin's Uncle John who used to work at the marina there!). We had a little photo shoot after getting dressed before leaving. Colin was a good subject as always...

Despite Colin's nap, he fell asleep on the way over to dinner. I mean, so tired the mouth hung open kind of nap...

We got over there a little bit early, so we hung around in the car for a few minutes to let the light sprinkles pass by. Colin tried to convice us that he was big enough to drive Daddy's car, but I'm not so sure about that.

We had an excellent dinner at the Chart Room...Colin did too!

and greatly enjoyed the beautiful scenery...
