Happy Sunday, friends!
Here I am blogging on a Sunday. #whatintheworld
There are just too many fun things to blog about and so little time that I thought today, I’d share a bonus post with some pics and details from our time on Nantucket with my parents, grandparents, brother and his sweet family. It was three days of fabulous!
Here’s a recap:
Last Sunday morning all of our peeps arrived on the morning boat from Hyannis. We were SO EXCITED to see everyone!! You guys, I know I keep saying this, but my sweet grandmother had a TERRIBLE year in 2022, so the fact that she is here and healthy and able to travel is nothing short of a miracle. Andrew and I picked up Sean’s rental car for them and met them at the ferry terminal with that car and our car so that everyone had a spot. We piled in and headed straight to our house…
…we were so happy to have them!
Originally my grandparents were going to come stay with us for these three days and then Sean and Catherine were going to come at a later date (because she was going to be out of town), but they decided to change Catherine’s plans and come up too with my parents which meant all of us would be together…and that was extra fantastic! My grandparents stayed at our house and my parents, Sean and Catherine and their family (and it turned out that my girls) stayed in a rental house nearby.
M and M! These two are thick as thieves now 🙂 .
After we unloaded the luggage at our house (because their house wasn’t ready that early in the morning), we decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and head to…
…Something Natural for lunch!
This was the PERFECT spot for a bunch of excited kiddos!
After lunch, Samuel asked if we could please take him to see the ocean, so…
…off we went to Cisco beach 🙂 .
Next up, the Lowes wanted to stop for provisions for their rental house, so…
…we headed to Bartlett’s Farm and while they shopped, I watched the kiddos on the playground with my family.
After that, the grandparents all stayed with the kiddos at their house while Sean, Catherine, Andrew and I…
…rode scooters to Cisco Brewery! Sean rented a scooter from Young’s Bike Shop for them, so it worked out perfectly!
Yes, please! Live music and oysters at a brewery? Sign us up!
We had such a good time!
When we were done, we headed back, cleaned up…
…and had a delicious dinner at the Sea Grille!
How sweet is this?!
I love her so much!!
Our first day was a HUGE success!
The next morning…
…everyone met up in town for a little shopping before lunch at The Tavern. After lunch, Andrew and Sean took all of the kiddos to Nobadeer beach while the rest of us enjoyed shopping/strolling/hanging out in town.
The two of us thoroughly enjoyed the kid-free time!
You can find my dress HERE 🙂 .
Clearly, we were having a great day!
Later that night, we met up with the boys and the kids…
…at The Lobster Trap where the two of us ended up sitting next to each other. This is what happened when Catherine asked him to give his big sister a kiss…
Ha! After dinner, we all walked to the Juice Bar for ice cream before calling it a night.
The next morning, we met up in town again, and I snapped this pic…
…which made my heart melt.
We enjoyed a little bit of time in town and then headed off first to the far west side of the island…
…for lunch at Millie’s in Madaket.
It was crazy good!
After we saw the west side of the island, we drove over to…
…the far east side of the island for snacks and lookin’ in Sconset 🙂 .
Love this guy.
Love all of these guys.
Later that night, Kensington and Smith babysat all the kiddos while the 8 adults enjoyed a lovely dinner at Brant Point Grill. We were certainly sad to see them all go the next morning but so thankful we had the time all together on Nantucket.
That’s a wrap on this Sunday! I hope you all have a wonderful, wonderful day. I will be back again tomorrow, so I’ll see you then 🙂 !
