Week 341 Menu

Our wonderful time in New Jersey has come to an end and we have moved north to Nate’s Grammy’s home on a gulf on the South Shore (near Boston). I love this place. After a visit here, we head up to New Hampshire and then back down to Cape Cod! The kids are counting down to the Cape week all year. Can’t believe it’s already here!
