We had a wonderful week down the Cape even though the weather wasn't very cooperative. For the first three days Hurricane Danny was passing by so we had lots of rain and wind. The sun finally came out on Monday around 5 PM and the rest of the week was mild, but enjoyable.
Jacob had his first adventure at the beach and loved every minute of it! He ate lots of sand and flirted with lots of women. Everyone who walked by commented on how adorable he was and he immediately started smiling and clapping. We spent a whole day at Nauset Beach not knowing that they had just spotted 5 Great White sharks down the beach in Chatham. Yikes! The beach has been closed indefinitely ever since! We spent a full day at the Wellfleet Bay Wildlife Sanctuary, had dinner in Provincetown, checked out lots of lighthouses, windmills,beaches, etc. I also ate my body weight in lobster rolls and soft serve ice cream!
We came home on Friday night to beat the Labor Day traffic and spent the following day in Boston at the Public Garden and Boston Common. We took Jacob to see the Make Way for Ducklings display and he had fun playing with the ducks while Mommy ate some fried dough. :)
Even though we technically have a couple more weeks, traditionally Labor Day marks the end of Summer and since school is starting up again and the temps have dropped significantly I have whipped out the Fall decor. We are looking forward to apple picking on the 20th and hope for cool weather. Every year we go it just so happens to be the hottest day in September. When I think of apple picking I think of turtlenecks and hooded sweatshirts not shorts and sunblock so hopefully we'll get a cool day this year. I hope to get lots of pictures of Jacob picking apples this year and will post them in my next update. Last year, he was only home from the hospital for 2 months and I had to carry him around in the Bjorn. This year Grace will be two months old in the Bjorn and Jacob will be picking apples. Funny how that happens.....
