I’ve said it countless times on the blog before, but the 4th of July really is my favorite holiday.  This year did not disappoint, as we had a wonderful time at my uncle’s Cape house.  We did hit some bridge traffic despite leaving late on Wednesday night, but it didn’t matter once we got to the house and started catching up over drinks on the porch.  We had two great beach days, tons of food, great company, my favorite Cape Cod bar, and lots of laughs.

One of the funniest moments of the entire weekend was when my dad was playing corn hole and got one of the bean bags stuck in a tree.  He then proceeded to try to throw other bean bags at it to get it down, and somehow managed to get THREE bean bags in total stuck up there.  The next thing you knew, there were a LOT of Greeks just throwing random things up in the air, including bouncy balls, more bean bags, tennis balls, and even brooms.  And yes, the broom got stuck in the tree at one point too.  It’s one of those things that I wish had been video taped because it honestly could have been submitted to America’s Funniest Home Videos.  Luckily, I date someone over 6 feet.  Tim was able to save the day by standing on a 6 foot ladder and using a pole to knock the bean bags down!

Anyways, even though it’s not that far away, there’s something about being at the Cape house that makes you feel like you are escaping.  Even for just a night or two, it’s the perfect getaway.  Especially for July 4th.

What is your idea of the perfect getaway, whether somewhere close or far away?

Hope to see some of you at Two A Day tonight to burn off any weekend indulgences!  I’m teaching both Kickboxing for Liz and my Interval class.  Also, another F&F birthday shout-out today… happy birthday, BRIDGET! 🙂
