Cape Cod part two! After that first foggy day, honestly, it was the best weather for a trip we could have hoped for. We even had a small thunderstorm mid-week but it gave me an excuse to be inside, out of the sun and the pressures of every two hours reapplying sunblock. I get pretty obsessive about my sunblock application.
Continuing on with the paddle board...naptime.
The photos above are of Brianne and I in 2014, the ones below are of Kaelyn and I in 2012!
When I saw her in the same suit I knew I needed a picture to compare. They're like twins two years apart!
We found crabs on the beach and then took a walk into town for a dinner out of the house! Next year we are taking a picture at this dinner to actually get one with everyone in it. It's already been discussed.
"Chris*, me too, me too!" *pronounced "kiss" by this one.
Matchy matchy hair (Chris's was faked (but only a little) to match, Brianne woke up that way)
Each trip to the Cape, Chris and I take a day to go somewhere new on our own. Instead of Martha's Vineyard or Nantucket, we chose to drive around the mainland this past year and found ourselves in Chatham looking for something new on the Cape itself...and we found it. Or rather him...storytime!
We were on the lookout for ice cream after lunch and when we finally found this cute ice cream parlor Emack and Bolio's we also found out they only took cash. We headed back out the door to the nearest ATM. While standing outside the shop trying to locate the closest one, I noticed another group of people all looking down at one phone but I only noticed them because of the voice I head coming from their tiny gathering. I recognized it. As we started walking my suspicions were confirmed. There he was, strolling towards us, hat shading his face but it was definitely Harry Connick Jr! I stopped mid-stride, kinda smiled dumbly and went to say hello when Chris pulled me along down the path. I wanted to stop and say hi, but once again Chris was firmly on the side of "leave the guy alone, I'd want everyone to leave me alone!"...but isn't that why people want to be famous singers and actors? I mean, he did both! Movies, TV (regular and now reality) AND music! Wouldn't he appreciate someone telling him how much they appreciate his work! I mean I actually own some of his music!!! Anyway. We got a twenty, walked back to the store, contemplating ice cream flavors and when we entered the store, there sat Harry: hat off, facing the entrance, laughing and talking loudly with the kids he's with. I tried to get Chris to take a picture of me and my ice cream with him in the background but he refused Later I looked up his Instagram account and realized he does the SAME THING to other celebrities and calls them "stalkies".....I COULD HAVE TAKEN A STALKIE OF HIM! Gah. Oh well. But now you all know...Harry lives in Chatham!
So anyway, this is a picture of me and Chris outside of Emacks, eating our ice cream not in the shop so we wouldn't bother him...and also he had taken all the chairs with his huge group of kids. C'mon Harry, share the seats, it's hot out there and our ice cream will melt! And take a picture with me!
This girl was like a little shadow that whole week, I know it won't last forever so I'll take it while I can get it!
"Go stand next to your brother, I'll take a picture of you guys with the sandcastle. No, Kaelyn, don't pick your nose. Okay, stand a little closer together. A little clos- where are you going? Oh, you want to be on that side? Okay great! Smile guys! Brady, look up. Don't make that zombie smile! Brady? Okay, good enough!"
The last night of Cape Cod ice cream that summer...I still love vanilla with rainbow sprinkles best.
Sunset cruises on the paddle board. Thank you Cape Cod, it was a fantastic trip.
