July is by far my FAVORITE month of the year. There are lots of birthday celebrations, beach days, ice cream runs, beautiful sunsets, weddings, sales (!!!), and suntans. This weekend we only had two things planned – a friend’s wedding in the Cape and swimming in the pool. The weather forecast in the Cape was expected to be perfect, hot with 0% chance of rain and a slight breeze.
The wedding was in Brewster, MA at a beautiful venue, Ocean Edge Resort and Golf Club. The ceremony was so sweet.. I always cry no matter what. The food was delicious and the DJ was on point. Jake and I spent the whole night on the dance floor and I was so sore the next morning. I had a great hangover to go with the sore legs too. I thought sticking to tequila, soda and grapefruit would have me in the clear, but apparently when you drink 6 of them you are bound to have a hangover.
Everly stayed with her Grandpa and had a great night listening to music, playing with her toys and eating a big dinner.
Sunday morning we had a delicious breakfast at our favorite spot in the Cape, Bagel Haven. Then immediately got ready to be poolside. Everly splashed around for a full hour before taking a long afternoon nap.
Everly is starting to become fussy during the daytime… which hasn’t happened in a really long time. I’m assuming she’s teething and hot, but it’s exhausting for this mama. And it makes it very difficult to take adorable pictures of her.
After some time in the pool and an afternoon rest we headed to the Cotuit Kettleers home game. It was the first game that Jake, Everly and I had been to and we had a great time. We brought plenty of snacks and toys for Everly and laid a blanket out in the shady lawn. I highly recommend going to a game if you’re looking for a free Cape Cod activity. The concession stand had great snacks including hot dogs, lobster rolls, and a chowder and it was very family friendly. We’ll definitely be back with a bigger picnic basket and some hard ciders.
I also forced my husband to wear a “Cool Dad” shirt to match Everly — it was a late Father’s Day gift. He’s such a good sport for all of my embarrassing antics. And it also was great opportunity for a million pictures of these two.
What a weekend! We’ll be in the Cape for the 4th of July too! Lots of fun planned with my little mini for her first year of celebrations 🙂
