Dream Holiday: Nantucket

Screen Shot 2013-05-20 at 4.51.55 PM

When P was 10 months old, I traveled back East to visit family and stay with friends on Cape Cod.  It was a fantastic trip and I’m itching to go back.   I’d love to visit Martha’s Vineyard or Nantucket again.  No TV.  Just hitting the beach, taking twilight walks, BBQ-ing, playing board games, going to grab ice cream after dinner, renting beach cruisers, and sitting on the deck at sunset.  I spent so many summers at the Cape when I was little and would love to have P have the same experience.

And what would I pack? Here’s my wish list:

Any fun plans for Memorial Day? We’re BBQing all weekend and going to a pool party (and not on Nantucket!).  The weather has been hovering at 70 or so which is kinda weird because you can wear jeans in the morning, by noon you wish you were in shorts and by 5 you’re cold again.

Hard to believe P will be out of school in a matter of weeks and summer has officially started.  Where did the year go? I’m keeping my fingers crossed that he doesn’t scream like a wounded animal at his first swim lesson.  I’m betting he won’t get in the pool.

I’m meeting with one of my favorite photography professors in a few weeks to hammer out my project proposal and need to come up with a cute photo shoot for little man for Father’s Day.  He insisted on wearing one of Straw’s A’s jerseys to bed the other night and I was trying to take a picture, but that’s hard to do when your 3 year old is running rings around you and cackling.

I hope you have a relaxing weekend and enjoy the holiday! C
