OK everyone, we have been home for about 6 hours and figured I needed to get this thing underway. I am going to break this out in sections. You are going to hear “Rants” - things that really got on my nerves. “Raves” - the things I really liked. And, of course, see a whole bunch of pics. So, “Here We Gooooooo!!!”

Lets Get some Ranting Out of the way…BTW, before I rant, just know our trip was AWESOME, but along with the good came some bad…
RANT #1 -“GO ALREADY”
The Southeast and Texas was on Spring Break and it was crowded. I try my best to move through the parks as QUICKLY as possible while aware of the thousands of people around me. We have to stop on occasion to get a game plan together or do other trip housekeeping type of things, but we always try and find a place out of the flow of traffic. I am AMAZED at the people who will clog traffic for extended periods of time. They would have wide open space in front of them and would literally stop dozens of people from passing. I understand the picture taking and the immediate child behavior modification tasks…but moseying all the way down Main Street at a snails pace in a 3 person 10 foot wide section in the middle of traffic flow is INSANE…To top it off - I wish I could be more like that. Just strolling through the parks with the family oblivious to the thousands around me…I try, but I just can’t.
ALL THREE PICS ARE AT CAPE MAY - We pulled in and checked in (I will RAVE about that in a minut) and went straight to Cape May to start the trip.
