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!)

After a pretty near perfect day at the beach (Jacob Riis beach to be exact) – where Ezra coaxed me into the HUGE warm waves to be smashed around with him on the shore (a new game that he loves) – we went to this totally yummy spot for some fish tacos. There was a bit of a long line but it was definitely worth the wait for fresh ingredients, and a fresh coconut as our beverage. Rumor has it the owner surfs in South East Asia on the off season, and then opens this little taco hut for the summer only. Check out their fun promo movie here; http://rockawaytaco.com/.

I’ve been slow to post because our days have been filled with food, folks and fun. Not a bad summer, eh? We visited some friends in Maine who showed us their amazing garden, a backyard teepee, introduced Ezra to geodes, and helped us find fresh seafood (ceviche sushi and lobsta!) in scenic Portland. The much cooler temperatures up north was just an added bonus to an otherwise perfect weekend…

(thank you Hillary, Aaron and Devorah!)
