Not only does this family know how to glamp, but they throw a pretty great summer Luau party too!

The Martens had us greeted with ladies holding fresh flower leis at the front, tiki sculptures around the pool, pineapple infused vodka drinks and great food in the back .. oh and of course, more swinging around in the aerialist’s trapeze swing like during Halloween’s party!

Thanks again for a great time Barbara and Sean! (and thx Barbara for some IG pix!)

Feeling a bit like Fantasy Island right from the start: IMG_8225IMG_8227

Ahhh you know we love this place, and don’t get out there as often as we use to.  I’m really hoping to carve more time out this summer to enjoy my favorite routine of  “First lake time, then feast” :

I’m kind of overwhelmed with how quickly the kids are growing.  I don’t know if I’ve ever written that before – but especially now that Ezra approaches age 12 in August: there seems to be so much more responsibility coming around the bend.  He’s already talking about High Schools to apply to, and we are running into his friends moving around on their own on the NYC subway system.  (I am close to letting him get to Time’s Square for camp each day on his own, but just cannot bring myself to it yet.  It’s great to have theater camp there, but it’s also a known fact that all the strangest New Yorkers are walking around that area of town – in case you are ever acting as tourist there and wondering about this..)

When we went to the beach on 4th July, the kids made dinner for us, and then cleaned up the house before we left.  I’m shocked to see that even all the ‘toddlers on the lake’ in Cornwall are suddenly seeming like teenagers !

Even Zoe moves around on her own lately.  We gave her a few dollars for the Cornwall rummage sale and let her roam freely to shop for a few hours with a friend.  She found a very excellent twin version of Louie for just a dollar!

We made a little getaway during the beginning of Feb break. It was cold, but when bundled up .. the beaches in East Chatham and Welfleet area is the best place to be in the middle of winter! And even though many of the seasonal restaurants were closed, P Town always has great art everywhere. We ate at our favorite place The Canteen again (open year round!), and as always – the crispy spicy Brussels sprouts did not disappoint. Even Louie loves Cape Cod now!

(thank you Auntie Betty for hosting!)

I just cannot keep up to all the photos we have from our cruise!  One of the highlights for me was being able to dock in Cozumel Mexico, and walk around a bit on foot to find great little food stands and local culture.  At first we disembarked with the cousins and got a great photo opp, then we went our own ways and walked around.  We walked far enough off the beaten path this time that we stumbled upon a local beach cafe – where lots of local residents seemed to just take a break by walking right into the ocean in their clothes; no bathing suits required!  The way the buildings are painted, the graffiti and the little food vendor bikes and trucks are so charming.  We hung out on hammocks and ordered fish tacos and sopa de lima which I haven’t had in years!  Then the boys snorkeled, and Ezra claims he even saw an eel while swimming!  I’m pretty sure we have another trip to Mexico on our travel agenda now.

Remember our friends, the fun Marten family who treated us to some ‘glamping’? Well they put on a super fun Halloween party at their home – with a magician, aerialist, and amazing food! And of course their family and friends are always fun as well.  After that, we felt the urge to decorate our own front door and as always – E and Z’s dad got some great annual Halloween costume portraits .. have a great weekend everyone!
