Maine and Cape Cod

Since it’s literally the last day of summer, I figured it was the perfect time to share some pictures from the last leg of our vacation. I apologize to all of you who have already moved on to pumpkin spice lattes and apple picking. I’m still holding onto the very last bit of summer.

After New York, we headed up to Ogunquit for a week. The weather was perfect, the beaches were beautiful, and we even made it up to Old Orchard Beach one day. It was exactly what we were looking for: trashy, cheap, and fun. I took Maddy on a roller coaster, where she cried the entire time out of fear. And then immediately after the ride ended she turns to me and asks, “Mama can we go again?!”. Confusing? Sure. An expected response from my daughter? Absolutely. (Also little side note: about two weeks after we were there, I read an article in the Globe that the roller coaster we went on was being removed, and replaced with a newer model. It did feel a bit rickety while we were on it. Super stoked I took my seven year old daughter on an old, dying coaster).

After Maine we drove straight through to Cape Cod. Is there anything better than the Cape in the summertime? Or just the Cape in general? We had a really relaxing week, surrounded by family who were also down there. Greg and I even managed to fit a date night in! He surprised me and made reservations. Is this real life? Reservations?!?! Shout out to G for hooking it up.

Here are some pictures to check out. I hope everyone has made a smooth transition to real life again. After today we can officially buy the shit out of pumpkin everything and feel zero guilt.

I love Maddy’s smile here, and how Jack is all set with the photo shoot. But Maddy’s smile is literal gold.

And then I found this. In love.

FINALLY taught Maddy how to ride a bike without training wheels. It was a long time coming, shame on us, but whatever! It happened!

All these birds lined up before a storm hit the Cape and I just kindof loved it.

  1. Wow – going by the pics it looks as if you all had a fantastic time 🙂 Well done on managing a “date night” – super special. Thank you for sharing

  2. Sounds like a pretty awesome vacation! Getting to hit the rollercoster before it goes down will be a memory she can keep forever.
    Your descriptions and clingyness for summer made me miss summer even though it just ended. 😟
    Btw That second pic of your babies is too cute!
