We headed to Heritage Museum and Gardens to do three awesome things:  1.) Enjoy the beautiful grounds (amazing), 2.) Ride the huge indoor carousel at one of their museums and 3.) visit their incredible outdoor play zone for kids (called Hidden Hollow).  Here are pictures from to of the three, but mostly of playing.

After the gardens we headed over to Marc, Wendy, Griffin, and Colton’s house for food and fun.

Marc took Clara down to the inlet and taught her how to net some crabs!

One our favorite ponds is Wakeby pond, because it is large, has great shade, a good short hike, and a seesaw!

One of the signature images in Sandwich is its long boardwalk across saltwater marsh to the ocean.  We walked the planks together and spotted some crabs and birds along the way.  Clara and Gwen both loved being up so high and on such a big long bridge.

(Ordering these is a little difficult on my cell phone-c if u can figure it out)

After our boardwalk adventure we had our seafood night out at Sam’s.
Fried haddock, calamari, scallops, shrimp, etc. Awesome! We topped the day off with a trip to some ice cream. Papa came out on top thus night-ask Gwen who gave her, her first cone.

We visited Wendy, Griffin, and Colton today!  We started indoors with puzzles and quickly moved to the beach.

After playing at the beach we headed back for lunch and let Gwen have a little nap. Clara went on an adventure with Grammy shopping. After nap we headed to Briarwood Nature Center to see flowers, animals, and hike!

We started our first full day in the warmer and gentler waters at Peter’s Pond.  We like Peter’s Pond because it has the big three (beyond water and sand): shade, swings, and picnic tables. We used all of them!

In the late afternoon we did a short hike at Murkwood reservation.

We are returning to Sandwich for a week in the sun with family and friends.  As soon as we pulled up we unloaded our things and walked down for our first touch of “ocean water.”

After we took our brief beach outing we returned for Papa’s birthday party. The main event was obviously the cake!

A good first night.

Grammy and Papa came to hit the zoo and water park with girls and enjoy our sunny 83 degree day.  Clara loves when Grammy visits, and can barely control herself when Grammy brings daisy.  Gwen squeaks and screams with joy around daisy and Clara provides all the words.  They both live, it seems, to see “aminals” (cats, squirrels, dogs, birds, giraffes, zebra, etc.), but daisy is definitely king.

Gwen is a climbing machine and her physical prowess continues, but she has recently picked up in the vocabulary department-we are now in double digits with agua and gracias at the forefront.

I hope to have a couple posts soon on our two weeks on the cape.  Stay tuned.

Oh, and Clara and Gwen if your reading this-your Mom and dad love you very much.

We just got back from a bday party at one of Clara’s friends–Clara and Gwen really rocked it out.  I have included four videos of their exploits for you to enjoy.

After the videos are more pics and videos from the playgrounds, malls, and other party we hit.  It is absolutely wonderful to watch both of them grow and live–enjoy it with us!
