Cape Cod

We decided to take a few days and spend them on Cape Cod in celebration of Brad's Graduation. 
We rented a house and had Ryan, Tara, Ron, and Donna come with us. Poor Donna had broken her foot 2 weeks before but she was a trooper.
We were excited to explore the Cape and spent the first day driving all the way up to the tip, Provincetown.
We stopped a lot along the way.

First beach stop in Harwick.
(I love Camille in the background. Karate Kid anyone?)
 Awesome sand, lots of seashells to collect
 and a Natalie, who when I asked her not to get too wet responded, "I JUST can't help it."
Lizzy was not excited for her first walk on the beach.

Next stop, Chatham. This lighthouse is an active coastguard lighthouse.
 The next beach stop the girls begged to go swimming. It wasn't quite what I would call warm enough but it didn't hold them back.

Tara agreed with me
(See winter coat at the beach)
Love watching the girls play with Brad.

The waves were chasing her...

Make sure you get nice and sandy so we have to spray you off with cold water.

We finally made it up to Provincetown and squeezed in two more lighthouse
We wanted to go up in this Pilgrim monument tower but it was closed. 
Wood End and Long Point 

We walked out on the breakwater
The girls all wanted to put their hands through the rock.
We wrapped up our day eating at a restaurant run by a cute old Greek couple.
