Life’s Simple Pleasures
This past weekend was one of those weekends that make me appreciate the little things. We didn’t do anything over-the-top exciting, but we did a lot….and had a blast.
The weekend began with the boys’ baseball parade and season’s opening ceremonies. While I barely made it because I couldn’t quite get out of work on time, they had a great time. Saturday began with a long walk through town with one boy and two dogs. It was so great to see Rockport opening up around us, to feel the sunshine, and to hear the sounds of, dare I say, summer. Later we watched some good buddies play ball, hit Top Dog for an early dinner, went to Rockport High School’s baseball game under the lights, and ended the night at Long Beach Dairy Maid before bringing a little friend home to Gloucester.
Sunday Funday brought Bocce Ball on the boulevard with Grampy (who should be reading this….so, we apologize again that the boys couldn’t get along super well when teamed against each other on the court), lunch outside at Mile Marker One, some science fair homework, a walk on the beach, baseball practice, and then a shift feeding the baby goats up at Appleton Farms (pinch me) thanks to some great friends.
While I don’t necessarily need the reminder…it is always great to get out and about and get in touch with just why we love living on Cape Ann. Good times.
