Cape Cod Weekend!

Over the weekend, Dave and I, along with my brother and his wife Natalia went to our friends Laura and Pete's Cape House.  It was such a relaxing weekend and we had so much fun! Friday night we headed over to Chapin's in Dennis.
We waited for almost two hours, but it was worth the wait.  I got a hot lobster roll (again- I'm addicted- missed my post on Neptune Oyster's hot lobster roll? Check it out here.)
After waiting for so long I think I could have eaten my arm so I really didn't spend much time enjoying this.  I spent much more time stuffing it into my mouth as quickly as possible. I was hungry! It was really good- not as good as Neptunes but it also wasn't nearly as expensive (Neptunes is $25!) After dinner, we headed back to the house and passed out pretty quickly.  On Saturday we woke up and went to the beach!
Most of us read and hung out in the sun... but one of us just couldn't sit still....
 Mike (my brother) did gymnastics and nearly broke his back several times. (I love the picture of Pete reading while Mike is doing headstands in the sand).
Then we decided to bury his wife Natalia in the sand.  Yes, us siblings can't sit still very long.
Aww, true love. 
Saturday night we made tons of food and stayed in- 1.35lb lobsters each, grilled corn on the cob, and an Orzo Salad. But first- oyster shooters (made by hubby Dave and Pete!)
Now these are my kind of shots! Then we played with and cooked the lobster, made the orzo salad and the corn on the cob.
And then time to eat!
Laura made the Orzo salad and it was AMAZING.  It's a Giada recipe and you should definitely make it!  Click here if you want the recipe.

After dinner, we enjoyed beers over the campfire and... yep, you guessed it... S'mores!
Step One: Add marshmallow to stick after you've stuck the stick into the fire for a few seconds. Then put it into the flame!
Be careful, the 'mellow doesn't catch on fire- if it does, blow it out!
Once marshmallow is slightly melted, add it to a graham cracker with a couple pieces of Hershey's chocolate and enjoy!
Mmmmm, I want one, NOW! 

And that was our weekend!
PS- Laura is the cutest pregnant girl ever- don't you agree?!? And she's 7+ months pregnant!


  1. Oh my gosh I'm SO jealous of your Cape weekend. I grew up at the Cape on the weekends and now that I live in FLA I only get to go up over the 4th of July and had to miss this year. Boo! I can't wait to have my lobster next year.
    Yes she is a super cute prego!

  2. It was so much fun!! And there are alot of great restaurants on the Cape we'll have to check out in the future.

    I really want a smore now...


  3. Looks like an awesome time! I'm jealous of your Mayflower beach excursions. I miss that place!

  4. Looks like such a fun weekend at the beach! And your friend really is the cutest pregnant chick ever :)

  5. Lizzy, I love this! This was the best weekend! We definately have to do it again. Your pictures came out great. Ironically, I was reading a book on how to do headstands at the beach while Mike was doing headstands... Oh and I agree... Laura is the cutest prego ever. Thanks for posting this!

  6. So in that FB status - the one about summer not being complete because I haven't had a single s'more? I was also tempted to write another reason summer can't end yet - I haven't had a lobster! You've beat me with both. I need to get on that. I foresee lobster and s'mores next weekend!

  7. YUM! That lobster roll looks scrumptious!
