New Jersey: Finley, Emerson, and Aunt Kristy

In New Jersey, I also saw my Aunt Kristy and my cousins Finley and Emerson, who were in from North Carolina. First we went to a clam restaurant, where Finley and I both ate steamed clams. Then, after the 4th of July, when I got to see more of my cousins, I went to Storybookland with them. That was AWESOME!!!

Here are the pictures. I still miss my cousins and my Banana so much.

Daddy had to help me eat my clams

Even Finley had some too!

New Jersey: Poppy's Pancakes and the Cape May Zoo

Mommy and Daddy took me to New Jersey over the 4th of July. We had a great time. Since there are so many pictures, I am splitting them up into several blog posts.

We spent the first couple of days (after we got out of urgent care for Mama's infected hand!) with Poppy. He made us his famous pancakes, and we went down to Cape May for the zoo and the beach.

Here I am on the plane!

And here I am in my 'bones' PJs....I just love them!

Here's Poppy making my pancakes for me

And here I am with my extra-special gingerbread man pancake

I quickly found Poppy's magnifying glass...

...and examined my beach hat with it.

I also took care of my babies....

....and discovered Poppy's chair!

Here we are relaxing together.

At the zoo with Mama

Examining something with Banana

Not sure what's in the cage, but it was sure interesting!

Here I saw my first white peacock (I have seen others since then)

Daddy and me!

Mama really likes this picture because if you look closely, Banana and I are simultaneously raising our hands in unison with the 'no pictures please' hand signal!
It really makes her laugh.

After the zoo, we went to the Cape May Lighthouse, but I was too scared and tired to climb it with Mama. It was about 6 or 7ish after all! So instead, we walked down to the beach.

Daddy and me walking down to the beach

This is a video that looks like it is nothing, but if you look closely, you can see the dolphins we saw swimming in the water outside the Cape May beach. I think they were out there because it was a nonswimming beach and it was also the turning of the tide.

Watching the dolphins

Pausing for a picture for Mama

Daddy and I dug in the sand. He is always so fun to play with!

And another one of us on the beach.

Kiddieland, my favorite amusement park, will be closing this year. I have been there on previous visits as a baby, but not at least for two years, so when Brody invited me to go June 9 with him, Melinda (his Mom), his sister Delaney, and her friend Lalit, Mommy and I jumped at the chance. We had a wonderful time....the day was cool and cloudy so it was not crowded. Mama and I plan to go back at least 1 or 2 more times before the summer is over
I even went on the roller coaster!!!!

Here are the pictures that Mama got.

Lalit, Delaney, me, and Brody!

another one of all of us

I got tired of taking pictures in the parking lot

but they took a few silly ones

like this one!

I rode a lot of rides with Lalit!

Here's Brody with Delaney

And here I am on the boats with Lalit!

Brody and me on the cars

Flying saucers!

I really had a good time riding with Lalit

Lalit and Delaney took us on the mushroom spinner ride, which was super-fun!

Spinning around and around

Brody and me on the airplanes (yes, with the guns...sigh.)

Some whirly-car pictures:

Toward the end of the day, we all went on the tilt-a-whirl. Fun!

It was one super day with my friends!
