Travis was the speaker at Focus's College Week in Martha's Vineyard last week. We leapt at the opportunity to turn it into a vacation! I will henceforth refer to MV as "The Vineyard" to imply that I go there often and am not a mere tourist. It was incredible. We had a cottage on the camp and three meals a day of amazing food and the chance to explore this gorgeous island. It was a wonderful time for us as a family.
Here are the girls on the ferry on the way there. It's about 10 pm. They have already been on a plane and in a car each for almost two hours. They were troopers though.
On the swings at the Focus Study Center.
Hanging out in Edgartown.
We went out one night for dessert at the famous Black Dog Tavern in Vineyard Haven.
Oh the glory of camp "Red Juice!" Sophia called the Dining Hall - "that Restaurant"
The adorable "Gingerbread Cottages" in Oak Bluffs.
Olivia was an incredible traveler - and The Vineyard agreed with her - she got two teeth while we were there!
"The Giant Sandbox" (aka Sand Volleyball Court) = endless hours of fun.
When asked what she misses about The Vineyard, Sophia replies "Pablo the Cat."
Here's the cottage we stayed in that overlooked a Seth's Pond.
Ann LeFeve, who made it all possible by asking Travis to speak at Focus's College Week. When we arrived, she informed us that she had actually never even heard him speak before. Thanks for taking such a risk Ann!
Daddy got lots of time with his girls!
We made it out one night without the kids for an amazing dinner in Meneshma, a tiny fishing village known for its sunsets.
Hanging out in Oak Bluffs...
We had a great beach day towards the end of the week! But it was still only in the 70's.
Sophia loved the lighthouse in Aquinnah. Of all the things we did, this is what she keeps talking about!
