We're Home!!!

Vacation was awesome and we stayed busy every single day having so much fun but on Saturday morning at 6AM we boarded the ferry to come home. We had a blast but it's so nice to be home in our own house with our own stuff and to go on our neighborhood walkie to smell who's been here while we were away!
We do apologize that we didn't sign blogs while we were on Nantucket and now that we're home, we're having so much fun catching up on them!

We already miss our nightly ice cream! This was the spot that had the gingersnap molasses flavor! I wish I had a spoonful of that right now! Boy, it was yummy!
Mitch kept himself in great shape climbing the stairs all day long! We'd go into town and he'd still be practicing! Practice makes perfect, right!
Here he is trying to get me to climb with him! Naaaaaaaaaaaaa, it's new to you Mitch, not to me! You do it! By the way - Mitch now weighs more than I do - the little porker, and he's taller than I am!
We went to Nantucket center twice a day, every single day. The first time was after our walkie down to Surfside beach so that dad could buy the newspaper to keep up on the football news!And the second time was after dinner.
We met so many new friends. Check out the Herbie and Helios look-alikes!
This is a Labradoodle. We saw him carrying his lunch in his mouth one morning going to the store that his mom owns to hang out. Mom's camera was acting up that day so we missed the shot of him carrying his kibble! Bummer!
We sure swear that this was Simba! We found this guy on the docks hanging out with the boats! It was you, right Simba?? Who's that lady who's kissing you?
Check out Mitch! He's a dare-devil for sure. One wrong step and he'd be in that dirty nasty seaweed-filled harbor water. ewwwwwwwwww!
Here's Opy minding the store! We apologize that Opy's face is so dark.
This store is called Cold Noses! It was mom's favorite shop on the Island and I think she went in there about 6 times while we were there!
This is a picture of Nantucket as the ferry is moving away from the dock. It sure was a fun vacation!

Here we are aboard the ferry hanging out for the 2 hour trip back to Cape Cod! What a totally relaxing vacation it was! We're so glad that we got to go! Thank you so much mom and dad! We had the BEST time!

We're still catching up with our chores at home and we're trying like heck to make the rounds so we can see what all of our bloggin' buddies have been up to! We'll get there, we promise!

So until next time..............

Love ya lots,

Welcome back. You had a great vacation and someone, (mom or dad) took some great photos! We agree with boo that it was a great trip to take vicariously, but next year I want to be able to smell the ocean.

sounds like a wonderful holly-day! We don't get to go holly-days here coz we live on a small place.

Stanley said...

Magpie & MitchMan!!

I love all the photos. Your mom & dad are SO COOL to take you with them on vacation (I don't think it would have been a very good vacation for *them* if you guys weren't along for the ride).

I love the last photo with your dad relaxing on the bench. You look so at home on the ferry.

SO HAPPY you guys are HOME!! By the way, my girl finally bought her tickets for the cirque de solAire quilt, and she won the special prize for last Wednesday! We thought of your mom when the quilt lady peemailed to tell us to watch out for the clown car at the circus cuz it might run us over. We told HER that we knew the driver of the clown car & weren't worried!

Goober love,

Jessie and Jake said...

Wow that is the bestest vacation ever. We know your happy to be home (no place like home) but it sure as heck looks like you all had a swell time!
