Bantley’s First Vacation…Ever

So Bantley went on his first Vacation ever and he seemed to like it.  Here he is smiling.

The beach was lovely and he got to hang out with his friends.

He even went sightseeing.

It was a great time.  He was making friends everywhere he went.  There was this lovely Frenchman who thought he was a celebrity but found out that Bantley was just a fun loving Troll with a penchant to having his photo taken.

He is one handsome Troll.  Sure not as good looking as me but then again…who is?  I’m Bjorn Maelstrom and I’m hysterical!  Wait till you see what Homie was up to on vacation.

The Maelstrom’s On Vacation

It’s not a regular time when a bunch of the Maelstrom’s are in town for a group vacation.  This year we lucked out.

The weather was perfect and the water was refreshing.  Being Nordic we tend to like the weather colder but even the heat of the summer could dampen our fun.

Nils was all over the place.  This was his first trip to a beach ever.  He doesn’t speak much English but he was having a blast!

We are a fun bunch that much is true about the Maelstroms!!

Ingrid did a lot of sightseeing on her own.  She loves all the tourist things like Museums and such.  Here she is at the Cape May Firehouse Museum.

She also made it to the Aviation Museum.  She said we missed a great time.  You can get in the vehicles and play with the equipment.  I definitely need to visit this one!  I love touching stuff!

A Taste of Summer

We got to go to the beach last weekend which we’ve been sorely lacking this year.  It was cloudy and windy but you know what…It was AWESOME!

It was Bantley’s first trip to the beach.  It was smiling the whole time.

Bjorn Loves the beach and can’t wait to get back there.  Even though there are seagulls.

I was trying to be creative with the Lifeguards in this picture.  I’m wild like that!

We all can’t wait to go back!  See you soon Ocean!

Lets Go To The Shore!

The Roomies were securing the summer rental this past weekend and we got to tag along.  The Beach looked inviting!

China loved the warmth of the sun.

Bow, Elenor and Cookie were sunning themselves on the bench.

We drove around town.  It was so quiet, not like the hustle and bustle of the Summer months.

Homie loved the “protecting” the local leprechaun.

The Roomie changed the lyrics to the Robin Sparkles song “Lets Go To The Mall” with “Lets Go To The Shore” and then sang it for hours.  Now I can’t get that silly ditty out of my head.  Ugh!

Anywho…can’t wait for the Summer to start 🙂

The Fairies Hit The Beach

I love the beach but do not get to visit it often.

It’s fabulous here under the umbrella.

Being a woodland creature for the most part I’ve found the beach life to be very nice indeed.  The Ocean was perfect and I had plenty of shade under this umbrella!

Being an Irish Fairy Phinn didn’t take off his coat.  He didn’t want to get sunburned.

This was another successful vacation at the Jersey shore for the lot of us.  Good times, food, family and fun!

We’ll see you Wildwood Crest in 2014!
