We are finally back home after 2 weeks up on Cape Cod. I had grand plans to blog from the iPad, but clearly that didn’t happen.
Here is a quick photo summary of what we did:
Spent lots of time with loved ones. Boom has 2 sisters and a brother and they all have kids, so it was great that we got to see them and hang out!
Read. JJ loves his grandpy! J is his namesake, so it makes sense.
Celebrated. Since all 18 of us haven’t been together in ages (3 years!), we’ve started a tradition of doing Christmas in July. Nana even put up a mini-Christmas tree! The kids loved getting gifts randomly in July.
Little Sailor got christened up there, so it was a great excuse to have a…
CLAMBAKE! What is a visit to the Cape without a clambake?! and all of Boom’s uncles and aunts and their kids were there to celebrate with us. 39 folks in total. So fun to see the extended family.
Played. JJ had no shortage of playmates. His cousins loved playing with him.
Experienced baseball. This was my first trip to Fenway! We had great seats, compliments of Boom’s brother, in row J – just 10 rows up from the field!
Smiled. The whole time we were up there, the boys were really great! So lots of smiles from them and us!
“Swam”. JJ loves the ocean! He couldn’t get enough of the beach and water – and he has no fear. He would walk into the ocean over his head, and when we’d pick him up out of it, he’d be smiling and laughing!
Entertained. Probably the toughest parts about going up to the Cape is the long flight – I did a good job, I think, stocking up on things to keep JJ amused on both flights. He had stickers, crayons, markers, coloring books, new snacks, fun new toys, and something I would highly recommend for anyone traveling with a toddler – a plastic Slinky! It probably cost me about $1, but J loved playing with it. We didn’t even had to bust out the iPad on either flights. I was quite pleased. Little Sailor, being less mobile and more sleepy, slept for a good portion of both flights.
Many thanks to Nana and Grandpy for hosting us and loving on the boys so much! We had a wonderful time.
