Last month we were super stoked to host Taber's nephew Paul and his wife Shug, who flew in from Alaska to take in the sights New England.
First sight: Main Dunstable Elementary school for the Spring Fling Carnival! Lol! Okay, maybe that's not very touristy but the kids were excited to have Paul and Shug there.
It was a bit rainy so most of the fling was indoors, but the kids got to ride ponies and check out a petting zoo before heading inside. The Goat liked eating Cam's pants, it was pretty funny.
Inside there was face painting, bounce houses, carnival games and best of all, cotton candy. The girls were thrilled.
Since Taber was working and Teya was in school, Paul and Shug went out on their own during the week for some sight seeing in Maine and Vermont. But in the evenings once the kids were down, it was all about Settlers of Catan. I think we must've played 8-9 games while they were here. Sadly, I only won ONE of those games, but oh what a sweet victory it was! ;)
When the weekend rolled around Paul and Shug invited us to come down to Cape Cod and stay with them at their friend's 5 bedroom beach house. We were like, "well...if you're going to twist our arms..." kidding! We were so excited!
The kids loved being near the ocean and spent hours playing on the rocks and collecting treasures.

And I was there too!
Always behind the camera but here's one shot to document my presence : )
The first morning there we got up and cooked the most amazing breakfast ever! deep friend pancakes with strawberries and syrup, crispy bacon and the most divine scrambled eggs I've ever eaten. Twas a feast fit for kings!
Then we hit up the beach. Brinley wasn't shy about showing her enthusiasm. She was lovin' it!
Sand Mermaid, never gets old!
We had a great time, digging, splashing, throwing the frisbee and playing outside. We ended up staying down there for 2 nights and it was a total blast.
Love this picture of my Man and little Man. : )
After a fun filled week and an amazing weekend at the Cape it was time to say goodbye to Paul and Shug. It was awesome having them here and the kids definitely had a blast with their "Big Cousins" : )
