Jam packed pilgrimage to Massachusetts, per ush.

We stopped to see some dear friends in western Mass, where we visited a large and very charming farmer’s market (where PCF stopped to pet every dog) and had poolside hangs with said friends.
The farmhouse sink in our bedroom was too charming not to use for a FoxSea pic.
We finally made it to Fenway as a family, though to see a soccer match, not the Red Sox. We had a blast, but vowed to come back for a baseball game next time.
I honestly couldn’t get over the beauty of the Isabella Stewart Gardner Museum, as well as the sadness and mystery surrounding the still unsolved heist. *Binge the podcast Last Seen for tons of intriguing details about one of the most famous art thefts in history.
Bought myself a few little goodies in the gift shop, including this articulated fish pendant that reminds me of my mother’s 1970’s version.
We always want the boys to be familiar with Boston, so we tried to take them around to see various sights, neighborhoods and some of our favorite restaurants. Then we spent a little time at Children’s Museum for old times sake. Martin’s Playground just outside the museum ended up being their favorite destination.

The Cape is the best. I get such a great feeling of peace and calm when I’m there — even during stressful moments (there are always a few while on a multi-family vacation), there’s still a sort of… contentment. Everything is better there. We always look for new ways to enjoy our Cape time, building on beloved traditions with new memories, so this year we took advantage of David Sedaris’ book tour and IT. WAS. AMAZING. We stayed after so we could have our books signed and get a chance to speak with him. He’s divine. A fucking international treasure. I have a picture of him (not sharing for now) that is fantastic. A story for another time…

I always take advantage of the beautiful, oh so FoxSea scenery for some pretty photos for the ‘gram. #ABP #alwaysbepromoting
