2014 is flying by...it's already half over. That can only mean one thing....our favorite week of the year is right around the corner!!! In fact, just yesterday Jim and I were solidifying our Cape Cod Fourth of July plans. We head down the Cape each Independence Day with a pretty solid group of friends. We take part in beach festivities, BBQing, fireworks and flunkyball. If you have to ask what flunkyball is...well, here's a quick screenshot from 2012.
This year will be our eighth annual Fourth of July and we couldn't be more excited to share the fun with Conor and Caden. Jimmy and I have said time and time again that we don't want our lifestyle to change or change who we are because we have children. This was some great advice given to me by Kiley a few years ago. She and her husband Ryan were so good about hanging out, going to happy hour, getting mani/pedis and even throwing some epic parties of their own (pig roast, chili cook off, etc). In short, life doesn't have to come to a halt simply because you have a baby - or two. :) It will of course be a bit different this year, but we can have fun in so many different ways. We are just thrilled to see our MA friends and enjoy the "Cape Cod air".
Back to reality for now - here's how I have been spending my days. Last week was my first full week by myself with two kids since my mom and sister have headed back to Boston. Jim really made a solid effort to come home early, and he is even able to work from home on Fridays in case I need a helping hand or if he needs to run out and grab something for me and the boys (usually a Dunkin Donuts decaf iced coffee).
