impromptu trip - long weekend at the Cape!

Happy 4th of July!!

Since Gwen and I were already off on Thursday, Trav went into work at the crack of dawn, and was able to leave by 2. Gwen and I picked him off and we headed up to Cape Cod. We knew his parents (his mom especially) was sad to not get to see Gwen (and us) until August. So we decided to make the most of the long weekend. The drive up was LONG. We were clearly not the only ones making the most of the weekend, but we got there and got settled in Thursday night.

Friday we got to visiting.

Friday was a bit overcast and chilly (which didn't keep Gwen out of the water!), because of the impending hurricane! By evening the sky had opened up and we were getting sheets of rain with horrendous winds. But we were in Cape Cod, so we were happy anyway!

Saturday however, was the polar opposite. It dawned chilly, but quickly became a beautiful day!

Beach time!

We read, and relaxed, ate amazing food, and spent hours at the beach. That evening there were some fireworks over the lake.

Sunday was another beautiful day. We got ready to go, then relaxed for a few hours with Megan, Andy, and Wyatt who were arriving that day.

Never tire of this view!

The cousins were so adorably excited to see each other!

It was hard to leave, but we headed home around 11. It was a long, long drive home. We didn't get to our house (after picking up Trav's car from his work) until almost 9pm! Overall it was a wonderful weekend though, and an amazing impromptu trip.

I can't even tell you how excited we all are now for our full time in Cape Cod in August!!
