Weekend in Review: Starting July

Weekend in Review: Starting July

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.ย  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.


Her sweet little face and hands on her hips!

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 ๐Ÿ™‚



Weekend in Review: HFD

Let’s be honest. Every day is the weekend for Everly & I (sahmlife), but we look forward to Saturday all week because we get 48 uninterrupted hours with Dadda! This weekend could not have been more perfect and we spent every second spoiling him.

Friday night we treated ourselves to a family dinner at our most favorite family date night spot in Southie, Capo. Lots of wine for the parents and lots of meatballs for the babe. If you’re looking for a family friendly restaurant in Southie, Capo is our #1. And trust me… we’ve tried them all. They pass out adorable baby onesies that say “Mini Meatball”, the music is loud enough to not hear any cries, and the menu is perfectly “kid-friendly”. The other reason, ok maybe the main reason, that we go to Capo is for the gelato. Peanut butter chocolate gelato…. heaven ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿป

The weather on Saturday was perfect – summer is definitely here to stay. We had Everly’s besties 1st birthday party in the burbs. Lots of sunshine, splashes in the kiddie pools and cake!

Then we took off for the Cape to spend time relaxing poolside.

I grew up going to my Grandmom & Granddad’s pool, so I’m super happy that Everly is able to make similar memories at her Grampy’s pool. Actually both of her Grandpa’s have awesome pools – this kid really has the best life. 3 months of swim lessons definitely paid off ๐Ÿ˜‚ – she loves the water!

We had two delicious dinners – one Saturday night in Mashpee Commons and one Sunday night at the country club. After dinner, Everly and I were sad to say bye to Dadda – he had to catch a flight to the west coast for work.

How was your Father’s Day weekend? What did you do to celebrate the dads in your life?
