We headed all the way down to our associates’ home in Centerville on Cape Cod the night time earlier than July 4th and stayed by means of most of the vacation the subsequent day. As a solution to recap, I needed to change issues up and share some snapshots with timestamps from our mini trip away. I hope you take pleasure in it! 🙂
We had been up and at ’em on Wednesday morning with last-minute packing, breakfast and different actions earlier than we began our drive all the way down to the Cape. Breakfast was a rice cake with floor flax (I’m nonetheless seed biking), pumpkin butter, cinnamon, and banana slices. Mmm! It was scrumptious, nutritious, and tremendous satisfying!
And, in fact, iced espresso with collagen and caramel-flavored Nutpods was on the agenda. I swear, my day at all times goes higher with this combo in-hand! 🙂
Then, it was time to pack up the automobile and hit the highway. Our first cease was the “dog spa” the place Murphy spent the night time with our new canine sitter and her 4 pups. (He had a good time, btw!)
Less than an hour later, we drove over the Sagamore Bridge onto Cape Cod! (Have I discussed how a lot I like dwelling on the South Shore?)
We stayed with our associates for the night time, so as soon as we arrived at their home and obtained settled, all of us headed out to the close by seaside. It was mid-morning, and I used to be feeling particularly snack-y, so I broke out a bag of snap peas. Mal and I’ve been on such a snap pea kick, and we’ve been crushing luggage currently. The natural ones from Whole Foods are particularly superb and so nice as a seaside snack!
A short time later, the ice cream truck arrived, and Quinn got here working out of the water prepared for a deal with! He picked a Ninja Turtle ice cream and ate it whereas taking a break from swimming.
About an hour later, it was nap time for our associates’ youngsters, so we packed up and headed again to their place to hang around. Quinn was truly feeling fairly drained himself, so he requested to take a nap as effectively. The guys headed out to take a look at a neighborhood brewery whereas the girls stayed at residence with wine and snacks whereas the little ones napped.
Quinn modified his thoughts a few nap, so he got here downstairs and performed Play-Doh with us. The dentist set was a giant hit!
Once nap time was over, all of us headed out for an early hen dinner. I can’t bear in mind the restaurant’s identify, but it surely was very darkish inside and the meals was simply so-so.
After dinner we took a household stroll, however I forgot my telephone in the automobile, so I didn’t snap any photos. After that, we put the kiddos to mattress and stayed up speaking, laughing, and singing late into the night time! 🙂
The subsequent morning, we had been awake vivid and early and able to have fun America’s birthday! Our first cease: Dunkin for iced espresso and munchkins! I ordered an iced decaf with a splash of milk.
The munchkins, in fact, had been in massive hit with everybody. I’ve a newfound appreciation for glazed munchkins from Dunkin and should have eaten a few half dozen myself!
Once everybody was prepared for the day, we headed out to breakfast at The Daily Paper, which was a fantastic spot. It was actually busy, however we didn’t wait lengthy for a desk and the meals and repair had been wonderful. The menu was nice with fairly a number of gluten-free choices. I extremely advocate it for those who’re in the Hyannis space!
After breakfast, we stopped residence to vary into our bathing fits and pack up our vehicles for one more journey to the seaside. But, first, we made positive to snap a fast household picture of our patriotic garb for the day! 🙂
My star tank is from Target final yr, however I discovered this one from Old Navy, which is tremendous cute and on sale! My shorts are, in fact, the Caslon Rolled Denim Boyfriend Shorts, which I just about put on continuous in the summer season! More favourite shorts on this publish.
The seaside was a number of enjoyable! It was tremendous scorching, so we spent a number of time swimming round in the ocean with our associates. Good occasions!
After the seaside, it was time to move residence for nap time. Quinn didn’t wish to nap, so he stayed up and snuggled with me on the sofa whereas we waited for the little ones to get up.
Apparently, Quinn’s determination backfired as a result of once we left the home to exit for a late lunch, he fell quick asleep in the automobile. Even after I obtained him out of his automobile seat and and began to hold him in the direction of the restaurant, he was nonetheless so exhausted and slept on me for fairly awhile throughout lunch. Quinn hardly ever naps on me these days, so I soaked up each minute of it. I like snuggling with my “baby.”
My rainbow hat is from the RUN PROUD line at Brooks. I lovvvveee it. It’s positively my go-to summer season hat! My high is from Nordstrom!
For lunch, we went to Anejo Mexican Bistro. The drinks and meals had been superior – positively test it out if you’re in the space! 🙂 I ordered a smokey margarita with spicy salt, and it was unbelievable!

Thankfully, Quinn woke as much as eat 2 bites of his cheese quesadilla (he stated he wasn’t hungry) earlier than we would have liked to discover a spot for the July 4th parade! The boys completely liked it, particularly the sweet that was thrown from the numerous autos and individuals!
We concluded our Fourth of July celebration with a visit to the Beechtree Taqueria for a drink with our associates earlier than heading residence.
