If you live in Massachusetts, you are (maybe) home celebrating Patriots Day or watching the Red Sox, or watching the Boston Marathon (or any combination of the three!). I’m crossing my fingers that it’s not too damp and rainy for Marathon Monday, but you never know what you’re going to get with April weather here in New England!
We had a beautiful weekend weather-wise here on the Cape, sunny and in the upper 50s to low 60s! It was simply phenomenal, and we spent almost all of it outside. On Saturday, we celebrated my mother’s birthday off with a trip to Spohr Gardens for the first of two Daffodil Days.
Since our spring was late, many of the daffodils weren’t blooming yet, but I’m sure they will be in full effect next Saturday! On the Daffodil Days, they have activities for the kids like a wishing tree and face painting, beautiful chamber music, book sales, and more. It’s a great place to enjoy beautiful views of Oyster Pond and the ocean in the distance.
Later on in the day, we hit up the Flying Bridge for a harbor view cocktail on opening weekend, followed by a birthday dinner cooked by moi. I made a lemon cake with raspberry butter cream frosting that was SO TASTY! I used boxed cake mix, but used this recipe for the butter cream frosting, and I highly suggest trying it—it was unreal!
On Sunday, I played catch up around the house and work, but found time for a quick outing to Peterson Farm to check out the new lambs. They are so adorable, and I wanted to jump the fence and pick them up. They are so cute chasing each other (and their moms!) around and making their tiny baa noises. 🙂 Here are some pics:
