Cape Cod 2016

This summer we were lucky enough to spend some time in Cape Cod, Massachusetts.  We enjoyed the sun and beaches, the lobster rolls and friends and family.  I wouldn't say it was relaxing to be on vacation with 4 boys who are 6, 4, 2, and newborn, but it did have some fun moments and it sure was beautiful!

Pirate Adventure Summer 2016

Part of our summer vacation was a trip to the Pirate Ship Adventure in Cape Cod.  We met our ship in Hyannis Port, and the kids were quickly given sailor names, pirate tattoos and outfits.  We also bought swords since what pirate would be complete without one?!  Then it was off to find the treasure while battling sea monsters and other pirates found in the sea trying to get in our way.  The boys loved every minute of the two hour adventure.  It was a great morning at sea!
