There were so many adventures during a week on the Vineyard; here’s a roundup of everything we didn’t already cover!
It’s not a trip to Martha’s Vineyard without a visit to the beach. We had an exciting one, with breakfast at the airport, wave riding, a shark sighting and all the sun we could take in. South Beach never disappoints!
In a family first, we ventured out on the Skipper for a fishing expedition in the waters around Martha’s Vineyard. We faced a little rain but that didn’t stop the excitement of reeling in a big one. Everyone had the chance to catch a “keeper”, helping others eat a fish feast that evening!
With friends in tow, we saw some of the best parts of Up Island on the Vineyard, including Aquinnah for some views and lighthouse climbing, and Menemsha Hills for a 3-mile hike to the beach and back. Needless to say, we wore the kids out after a couple of days!
We spent a fair bit of our time in Boston outside the city, experiencing new places like Salem and catching up with good friends. After weather delayed our arrival by 6 hours, we were treated to a lovely weekend the rest of our stay!
Another Easter nears, and another egg dyeing event with the Kohrs – a first after a three-year hiatus due to the pandemic (though there was plenty of egg-fueled fun outside last year). We upped the game with a volcano eggs, only adding to what is surely a few minutes of messy chaos!
We doubled our size since Thanksgiving 2020, hosting for the first time since 2018. It was a great meal, bookended with other Thanksgiving celebrations at school and with friends!
The pandemic put a hold on parties last year, so Owen had to be very patient for his first friend birthday party. The day came, and it didn’t disappoint! We had a bounce house, pizza and cake – all the ingredients of a perfect party!
Just shy of a two-year hiatus, we traveled north to visit Penn-tastic friends! It reminded us what great friends we have, who we’d love to se every weekend and enjoy hanging out on their “resort” grounds!
