If you saw the Boston trip in photos yesterday, this if a little inside view on our few days in the stunning Cape Cod area.
After a great few days seeing Beantown, the family and I piled in the car and drove out to Dennis, Massachusetts. As we drove along the tree lined streets, I just loved the quaint cottages and beautiful colonials that are sprinkled throughout the cape coast.
And then we arrived at our little VRBO (vacation rental by owner) cottage... beautiful.
Our new little pad for the weekend had such well done nautical themed decor, a huge back porch that you could see the ocean from and a gorgeous garden full of weird berries that I've never seen.
But of course they were so pretty with raindrops on them, so I had to get a photo!
The first morning I woke up at 5:45 a.m. because I was so excited to be at the beach. And then I realized everyone was still snoozing, so I listened to the raindrops while all cozy in bed.
Eventually everyone rolled out of bed with crazy hair and jammies and we headed to see the beach. It was misty, quiet, and gorgeous.
Later in the day, I finally got to experience my first lobster roll... and I'm still dreaming about it.
If you're ever visiting Cape Cod, be sure to stop by Sesuit Harbor Cafe for their world famous lobster roll! You order at the counter and then find a seat at the cute picnic tables right along the water. Great views, hilarious seagulls, and good eats.
Before we went to dinner that evening, we thought we'd enjoy the gorgeous sunset at high tide with pumpkin beers and good company.
It was crazy to me that such a large beach was completely covered by water, so we had to sit on the cliff rocks, but the sunset was totally worth it.
My mother-in-law and father-in-law... adorable.
We found these super silly crab hats to take family photos in, and we were cracking each other up. It's not a normal Evans vacay without dorky hats! :)
Our cottage as the storm rolled in that evening.
After an evening full of great seafood at Scargo Cafe, we skipped over to Ice Cream Smuggler to taste the Food Network acclaimed ice cream sundae. So yum and worth every calorie.
We went back to the cottage for a game night in our PJs! The next morning we had breakfast and sat around sipping coffee and telling stories.
We finally got around to exploring the beach, chasing hermit crabs... and pretending we were crustaceans with claws we found on the beach.
Meredith just cracks me up!
The boys probably could've played frisbee for hours, but who could blame them with the gorgeous views!
Later that afternoon, we roadtripped up to the craziest little coastal town... Providencetown!
People watching was fantastic! Meredith won for finding the world's sexiest cardigan (hello lighthouses!) and I enjoyed an ice cream cone that's bigger than my body. All in a day's work, folks!
Later that night we stopped at Winslow's Tavern in Wellfleet on our way back to the Dennis cottage.
The crab cakes and oysters were delish, and we had a fun time trying to get hubs to open his eyes during a photo - haha. Love that guy.
The last morning we dawned our oversized cozy Cape Cod sweatshirts and set-out to say goodbye to the Atlantic. We watched Oliver (Meredith and Kyle's pup) chase seagulls and race down the beach. It was a beautiful last morning.
Until next time, Cape Cod!
