Vacation Summer-Cape Cod

For vacation number two we went to New Seabury (Mashpee) on Cape Cod. For this vacation we joined my parents (and their dog, Scarlett, who Hunter absolutely adores–and Scarlett has mutual feelings for Hunter… when he has food in his hands!) and our good family friends. My sister, her fiancé, and her best friend from college also joined us for a couple days mid-week, so we had a full house! The house was great–it had a pool out back and was walking distance (there’s that key word again) from a small semi-private beach. We spent most of our days by the…

September Favorites

September is over! Onto October, which automatically brings thoughts of Halloween (Teaser: thinking Hunter may be Clark Kent for Halloween, but not set on this yet) and pumpkins (including pumpkin goodies!). Before I go full swing into the beginning of holiday season I want to mention a few of my September favorites here on the blog!

Favorite Part of Fall A lot of people are pretty obsessed with…

Vacation Summer – Newport, RI

I can’t believe it’s officially fall! Although the weather is feeling a little more like summer this week and I’m okay with it. I enjoy the fall weather, but I am NOT looking forward to winter, so a few more warmer days are welcome here! The change in seasons is making me reflect on our summer though. We had a pretty great summer and took three different vacations! We stayed fairly local, but it was nice to get away nonetheless. We used Homeaway to research, find, and book all our vacation homes. I find it very easy to use and between doing…

The Language of Motherhood

Recently Hunter and I walked down to the small playground in our neighborhood. This was during the week, so Sam was at work and I was on my own. Hunter loves the playground, but he is a bit of a daredevil. At 14 months old, he steps off play structures without noticing, flies down slides, and is constantly on the move. When Sam is there one person can be helping him up while the other person helps him come down, or we can each guard an opening on a play structure, etc (Sam also is the photographer, so these particular…

Geocaching

Sam and I have been trying to find ways to spend time together, be active, and not spend a whole ton of money. We came across the hobby of geocaching and decided to try it out. We had a blast! It was everything we were looking for. We wanted to share our first cache here on our blog, especially for those who are not familiar with it and might be interested in trying it out. So what is Geocaching? In my own words, geocaching is a world-wide scavenger hunt! Sign up for a free account (you can always upgrade to…
