Cape Cod Memories
The in Progress family finally took a vacation and it was a terrific week. We're probably the only family in Connecticut that hasn't packed it all in at some point and headed to Cape Cod, so we bit the bullet and rented a house in Chatham and it was well worth it!
It's really so great to take time off, spend time with the whole family together and undistracted and enjoy the things that make life awesome. We spent the entire week doing things we rarely take the time to do, including:
-going to the beach every day
-digging for sandcrabs
-riding bikes (6.5 miles in one ride for this out-of-shape dad!)
-twirling sparklers on a night other than the 4th of July
-toasting marshmallows on the gas stove to make S'mores on a rainy night
-playing board games (Blokus), card games (Phase 10) and lawn games (badminton)
-playing mini golf and real golf
Layered in with some things we often enjoy, like:
-reading (I devoured and recommend "The Road" by Cormac McCarthy
Some highlights of the trip:
Packing the car and bikes!
Building! (of course, we're a LEGO family)
My personal favorite way to relax: the beach nap with wet child wrapped in a towel and snuggling.
Gas stove S'mores
And just had to share the sisterly love (check those faces) after one week of togetherness!
