A Secret Visit to Cape Cod

Last Wednesday we flew out of South  Bend, In for a very special trip to Cape Cod.. Kevin’s family was having a family reunion at his sister MaryLou’s home.  His siblings would all  be there, along with cousins from Ohio, Alabama and NH..  His sister Lou decided it would be fun to make it a surprise, and that it was…

It has been 6 years since they have been together. Much longer for the cousins.   Alot of story’s were told, pictures came out and much much laughter took place,  along with some tears of course...

The following day was a lazy one for us. We just relaxed on MaryLou and Carl’s beautiful deck all day…With a dinner out of fried clams of course!

Kevin even got to to do his coloring…

It will be hard leaving this area. We just love the quaint small towns of the Cape, with the clapboard houses, hydrangeas, rose bushes, ocean, seafood  and that familiar smell in the air.… 

Our heartfelt thanks goes out to MaryLou and Carl for making this all happen.. We love you both and enjoyed every minute!!
