Vacation Week #1: The Beach (Plus a museum)

This year Preston and I took a two-week long vacation.  It’s the first time we’ve taken that long off since our wedding in 1995!

For the first week we rented a house in Scituate, Massachusetts.  It was on Humarock Beach which is beautiful.  We had great weather and lots of fun.

There are lots of pictures here, here, here, and here, but here’s a real cute one of my three favorite people:

Meanwhile, here’s how the week went down:

Saturday: We arrive! Long trip, lots of stops. Auntie Tracy greets us with pizza. Hooray! Tracy and I run to the grocery store for party supplies and provisions.

Sunday: Party! Friends and family converge and Grandpa Monahan mans the grill and serves up yummy hot dogs and burgers.

Monday: First day on the beach.  That night we headed to Nana and Grandpa’s house to celebrate their wedding anniversary with lobsters. So fun.

Tuesday: Another nice beach day.

Wednesday: Beach day. Sound boring? It wasn’t.

Thursday: The Boston Children’s Museum. Super-fun. Check out the photos here. I haven’t been since I was a kid. It was awesome watching Maddie run around and have a blast. After we had dinner with Zeyde and Uncle Craig.

Friday: Last day at the beach! It was beautiful. Perfect weather. Nana and Grandpa came and spent the day. That night we headed back to the house for steak tips and potato packets on the grill.

Saturday: Pack ’em up, move ’em out. The trip back to NYC wasn’t too bad and we looked forward to another week of R & R a little closer to home …
