We have been enjoying our visit this week with my parents who drove out to see us. One of the hard things about this move has been the distance to Jeff's family and mine.
The first day, we went to Plymouth so we could show them all of our favorite places. After lunch, we took our french fries outside to feed the seagulls. So fun!
What's not to enjoy about this scene? I love the water...
Last stop of the day was the beach.
Checking out a mussel that they found.
Zoey walks on the beach with grandma
The next day was the first day of school...
Backpacks lined up and ready to go, next to Daddy's briefcase.
We had to take this after school since it was raining in the morning.
After school, the kids begged to take Grandma and Grandpa to a nearby farm we recently found. It's a really cool little place and we will be going back there this fall for sure.
Why is this man holding all these bags of candy?
And why does he have his wallet out?
Oh. He must be a grandpa.
To all these little munchkins!
My mom and dad...I heart them!
Today, we drove to Cape Cod after we took the kids to school. The little kids were all hyped up to go to 'Cake Cob.' It never disappoints.
The view from Nobska Lighthouse. That is the ferry to Martha's Vineyard in the background.
Not a great photo of the lighthouse
(it's not leaning--that is just camera operator error)
Obligatory Tourist shot
(wait...is the lighthouse leaning the other way now? Or is the photographer really lousy?)
Lunch on a restaurant deck overlooking the water. This looks so nice but the person who told us about this place neglected to tell us it was a 1.5 mile walk to get there. We only had one stroller for Zoey.
Yeah. You can imagine it, right?
There was a whole lot of complaining going on.
The kids even complained a bit, too.
We did some shopping in the cute shops and picked up a few on-sale-because-the-summer-is-over sweatshirts to remember our visit.
All in all, it was a beautiful day and we had fun. We even made it back to the school on time to pick up the kids.
