MDW 2016 Snapshot

Sunglasses: Ray Ban. Top: Target.
Alexa's Dress: Carter's. Moccasins: Freshly Picked.

Our first family road trip to Cape Cod is currently in progress. Live and learn... it takes much longer than expected to pack up the car now. We left last Thursday evening around Alexa's bedtime and she slept during the four hour ride. Hopefully I don't jinx the ride home next week!

Our friends Mike and Kate came to visit Friday and Saturday. We missed their destination Caribbean wedding last month so I was anxious to finally congratulate them in person and introduce Alexa. Kate and I spent Saturday shopping... I bought the cute Red Sox bow at Minnows & Guppies on Main Street in Chatham. I knew Ted would love seeing it on his little girl... and more so that his Yankees fan wife caved and bought it. We spent Saturday afternoon at Chatham Bars Inn along with a few other friends on the Cape for the weekend. It is one of my favorite places to be in the summer.

Back in Connecticut my outings with Alexa have been just a couple of hours and easy to manage. I will not lie that being out and about all day gave me some anxiety, especially during her fussy times. My heart hurts when I hear her cry! All you mommas out there are probably thinking she has no idea what she has in store for the future, ha ha. Taking it one adventure at a time...

On Sunday we traveled into Boston for a beautiful wedding at the State Room. The view of the city was unbelievable. Ted's mom happily watched Alexa at our hotel during the ceremony and reception. I'm nursing so my booze intake was limited but thoroughly enjoyed. As usual I am regretting that I didn't take more pictures.

Looking forward to being back on the Cape all week. More adventures to come!



  1. Looks like y'all are having a great time! Such sweet memories being made!

  2. We have wanted to go to the Chatham Bars Inn for such a long time now - so beautiful there and yay for a wedding at the state room - one of my favorite wedding venues! xo, Biana -BlovedBoston

  3. You look so pretty at the wedding! I agree...the outings are hard because I used to get major anxiety about it too. One adventure at a time is really good to keep thinking. I also try to think about there are a gazillion other mothers out there that make it work so we should be able to as well right? And I think at some point you get to the phase of, I can deal with anything that is thrown at me now. Ha!

  4. Yay for your first family getaway! You are looking great, mama!
