Every Summer, we head east, on a pilgrimage to my family's true home. Even the years when my little family lived in Boston, we still highly anticipated our much shorter Summer drives to Cape Cod.
This year, my husband took our oldest son to Florida for a soccer match between their two favorite teams, the Tottenham Hot Spurs and Paris Saint Germain. So, I headed east with our youngest and made a mini trip of it, stopping in Pittsburgh and then Philadelphia, on our way to the Cape, where we all reunited. My road trip photo diary below...
The Ace Hotel in Pittsburgh, PA
The Ace Hotel is badass. I love all the details of this boutique hotel and can't wait to check out their sister properties. We took a walk around the block to see our neighborhood before settling in at the hotel, exploring the super cool nooks and crannies until we had to check out and get back on the road.
Chanticleer Gardens in Wayne, PA
On one of the hottest f^ck!ng days of the year, we arrived at our dear friends' house, just outside of Philly, in Berwyn. She prepared a delicious picnic dinner for us and took us to dine al fresco at the most gorgeous park, Chanticleer Gardens, in nearby Wayne (my photos do NOT do this place justice). We had an absolute blast, even though we were sweltering, and it was great to catch up with such treasured friends.
Arrival: Cape Cod!
After driving off Cape (in tears), we piled back in the car, this time all four of us Foxes, and headed home. To break the trip up, we spent a night in Pittsburgh, along with my brother and his family, and treated ourselves to a day at The Warhol Museum, before completing the final leg of our journey back to Indiana. The Warhol is a MUST EXPERIENCE for all ages.
