Scones, Sick and Skaket Beach

Lots of sickness this week.
Monday Will had the stomach bug and a fever. one else has gotten the stomach bug.
I was sick for two days and then Griffy woke up with a high fever this morning.
It's no fun being sick in the summer. :(

I bought this cookbook at William/Sonoma recently.
My new favorite!
I want to make everything in it. 
Started with the cream scones... :)

Griffy likes helping.

The kids have been working on their summer journals.

While listening to this.

Yesterday..during our one day of no sickness..
we were able to meet up with these guys.
We spent the day with them on the Cape.
Sometimes I forget that there are so many other great beaches around me..
not just mine!
We went to Skaket beach down in Orleans.
We had the best day!!
The kids all got along fabulously...(Stephen didn't make it :( 
A few neighboring beach-goers asked if they were all related
or if Hannah and Abby were sisters.
Sarah and I just laughed...but Jeff told them the story...
how we met through our blogs. 
It was kinda funny.

Once the wind died down
and the tide went waaay out
all the kids went out to skim board
and Jeff took Griffy and Patrick out too.
(that's him in the middle...Steve had to work :(
Sarah and I got to sit for a bit in our beach chairs and talk.

Then we went back to their cottage for pizza.
The kids did not want to leave!
We talked about how fun it would be to go on a family vacation together.
Maybe someday!

Thanks Jeff and Sarah for a great day!
We love your family!


  1. So fun. I love that beach. One of my nursing friends was from Orleans and we would go back and forth all summer. Hoping to get down to you and Kerry soon:) I definitely want some scones. xoxo!!

  2. I love this cook book. I have tried so many recipes. Love the egg salad sammies.

  3. how fun that you got to meet up with sarah and her family! what a treat it must have been to sit and visit. wish I could have joined in on the fun.
    kids look great!!

  4. Hope everyone is feeling better!
    The Griffy helping picture is hilarious! :D

  5. Thank you so much Pam...we all had so much fun with you all, and I love the photos.
    I wish we lived closer...I've said that about 200 times in the last couple days.

  6. That work room in your house with the map looks like heaven. To have that much space for projects would be awesome! I'll have to check out that cookbook.

    How fun to meet up and spend a whole day with a fellow blogger. And on the Cape too? YOU live a charmed life, my dear. Indeed. :)

  7. How in the world did I miss this post? I just read on Sarah's blog that y'all hung out for a day so I hopped here to see if I had missed something and I sure had! I'm so jealous that y'all got to spend a day together. *sigh*
