We love the summer at a&o!!! Nothing kicks off a celebration of sand, sun and fun like a trip to Martha’s Vineyard! Every year a bunch of our cousins head up to my parents house for a weekend get together! Food, family, jokes and laughter are the only requirements. Sadly, Ashley was out of town, but we did toast her!! This will be the first of many posts about chillin’ out ‘on the vineyard’. But we wanted to share photos of the blast that we had!! We hope that everyone’s July 4th was as amazing as ours.
Hiking trails behind the house
Fortunately the map is a circle, so we can’t get too lost.
Taylor says he’s ready with his walking stick.
There are quite a few beaches on Martha’s Vineyard. We live in Chilmark and spent our days on Squibnocket Beach (aka ‘Squibby’). There are 19 beaches on the island some public and some private. If you are in Chilmark, be sure to check out Menemsha Public Beach!
Happy July 4th!!!
Azua and Mishka prepared an amazing seafood pasta!
Lots of towels = Lots of fun!

We had lunch at the Saltwater before taking a walk around Vineyard Haven and catching the ferry.
Looks perfectly summery!!!
Bunch of Grapes has a GREAT selection of books and author signings. They relocated and the new store is fab!
An island favorite. I resisted but many deliciously falter.
