Going to The Beach

This weekend we went with the Roomies to the Beach.

Gru has put the word out that all off this is his…you may borrow his beach for a fee.

It was too cold to go down to the water but after the Nor’easter we got a week ago Homie was shocked that the beach looked this good.

Jeff the Clone declared this beach superior to his visit to Tatooine.  That was like Death Valley.  No fun!

Jeff the Clone has decided this is his new house.  Until Gru explained that it is on his beach, thus, it his domain.

Jimmy and Eddie discuss why they’ve been angry that none of their travels have been included on the blog.  These guys are super famous and stuff.

Don’t you people know who we are!  We are the drunk guys who gave you the California Trip of 2012!!!!

Homie the Vacation Minion!

SAM_4018 (400x300)I love to sight see more than my roommates.  I went with Bantley to the Lighthouse at Hereford.  It was really neat.  The gardens were beautiful.  The views from the top of the lighthouse were amazing and the view of the ocean was perfect!

When we were in Cape May we went to see the Firehouse.  It’s a free exhibit (so you know I’m in).  Lots of history there.  Also the Roomie was thrilled there was a cut out fireman to stick her face in.  She’s a weirdo.

Although, when we went to the Aviation Museum I did stick my face in the astronaut.  So many cool things this summer.  I wonder what’s going on this fall!

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!!

SAM_4079 (400x300)

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.

SAM_4035 (400x300)

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.

IMG_8788 (400x300)

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 🙂
