a few weekends ago, after stopping by the cranberry harvest, we drove onto sandwich, massachusetts (i mean, for the name alone, we had to go!) and then onto provincetown. the trip mostly consisted of searching for really good lobster rolls, looking for lighthouses and trying our best to spot as many crabs and other critters along the beach and shoreline. i loved the chance to do some proper exploring of the area since we’d never been. our time was super limited since our time in the car seems to double with 5 kids (you don’t even wanna know how long the 6 hour drive home really took), but i think overall, it was a really good one.
while these photos are some of my favorites we’ve taken together and they tell a special part of our weekend story,… traveling with kids, long stretches in the car, marriage, life, all of it has its moments. this trip had plenty of really raw and difficult moments sprinkled in for all of us (thank you, sleep deprivation). and while i’m not one to be like, “oh wait a second, let’s pause this argument we’re having to snap a photo of us being frustrated with one another,” i just really hope you never discredit your own life (the happy moments, as well as the difficult ones) for what you might see from someone elses. thank you for giving me this space to share pretty photos and all the stories celebrating motherhood and family life. i hope this space uplifts and encourages you to find the joy in your own life to cultivate, to hug your loved ones closer and to celebrate all the little things in the every day that are so worth celebrating. i always tell josh that i feel so fortunate to have the best of the best following along. you guys are the good ones and i know you get it. :)
i’m getting side tracked now, but anyway! onto all the photos of our time on the boardwalk and at the beach. get your scrolling finger ready!
on our drive back to the city, we had the best lobster rolls of our trip at the seafood shanty. it’s this darling little spot right off the highway, where you walk up to the window to order and then find a picnic table nearby, but it was delicious. the amount of lobster on that sandwich was insane. we tried one with butter and one with mayoniasse and they both were delicious. definitely worth checking out if you’re in the area. we found it on yelp and i’m so glad!
we ate lunch at the fisherman’s view restaurant in sandwich. this beet salad was our favorite dish from the meal.
conrad’s face here. ;)
sleeping babies all bundled up.
these are malasadas from the provincetown portuguese bakery and they were so good!
and sadly, we didn’t get to eat at the lobster pot even though a bunch of friends had recommended it. the wait was over an hour and with the kids we just didn’t think we could brave it. but now we have an excuse to go back someday. ;)
have a great weekend, friends!
