Summer Fun - Part 3

Last week we took our annual trip to Cape Cod. I love our time there - as a southern girl, I only experienced Myrtle Beach as a little girl. Cape Cod is totally different - it's doesn't have all the "glitz" and excitement that many beaches have, but in my opinion, it's so much better. It's a great place to truly relax, to reconnect with my family. My kids think no trip to Cape Cod is complete without a trip to the Brewster General Store. They have penny candy and cheap toys. My kids love the junk, I mean treasures, they purchase there.

Michelle was old enough this year to play mini-golf. We went late afternoon instead of in the evening, and this turned out to be a good move. Much shorter lines are a big plus when playing with a 3 year old.

Of course, the princess had the pink ball!

Yea, this was pretty much how it went.

We had a fun evening at the Bass River Beach, playing on the playground and eating sandwiches while watching the waves.

These next pic's are at one of my favorite places on earth - Mayflower Beach in Dennis. It's a great beach for kids - when the tide goes out, it leaves some fun pools. We skimboard, look for small fish and crabs, and splash around and have fun.

Michelle loves helping water flowers. And of course, a long standing tradition at the Cape is eating ice cream. Ah, just wish the week was longer!


  1. Great pics Midge! Enjoy the rest of your summer, and I'll be thinking of you as Elizabeth goes off to college. I'm sure you'll feel a void at your place for a while. ):
