About Cape Cod Moms
Cape Cod Moms was founded in 2010 as a free resource, a place to network and collaborate for moms and parents on Cape Cod. Our blog is designed to help Cape Cod Moms connect with other moms, parents, and caregivers to empower the community with knowledge and support. Today much of our culture focuses on celebrity perfection, which fosters a desire in women and caregivers to do everything right. This is an impossible achievement for anyone and leaves women feeling overworked as the try to strive for a standard only achieved in the media. Cape Cod Moms is a supportive safe-haven for moms to know they aren't alone in the obstacles they face every day; other moms and caregivers struggle to get it all done too!
Local Cape Cod Mom, Erin Edwards, owner of Upper Cape Med Aesthetics, has partnered with Cape Cod Moms on their upcoming new location Ribbon Cutting Ceremony. Erin who has partnered with us in the past through our giveaways will be opening her new location in Town Hall Square of Falmouth. We invite you to join us on November 22, 2019 at 5pm as Amy will go LIVE on Facebook during a treatment given by Erin! Come join us, have some fun and mix and mingle with new friends and old as we take a little time to pamper ourselves before the holiday season gets fully underway!

Fun Fall Activities
Fall has arrived and with it lots of fun activities to do. Below you will find some of my families favorite activities plus some that we want to try.
Apple Picking is one of my favorite fall activities. We always go to Nicewicz Farm in Bolton. Nicewicz is our favorite because it is quieter, their fruits and vegetables are closer to organic since they use integrated pest management and the owners remember us every year. This is a no frills apple picking experience there are fruit trees and pumpkin picking, the gardens and a farm stand where you can buy produce including corn, squashes and flowers. If you are looking for more upscale or caramel apples Nashoba Valley Winery is down the street. I have never been but for apple and pumpkin picking on Cape there is Crow Farm in Sandwich (apple picking is done for the season).
Heritage Gardens in Sandwich for a beautiful walk on the grounds. The kids love riding the carousel and playing in Hidden Hollows and adults can take in the galleries and car museum. There is also the newly restored windmill and a new garden to checkout. Heritage Gardens is open now through 10/14 but they also host Sandwich Halloween Festival 10/25 and 10/26 5pm-8:30pm for Halloween fun $5 per person.
Green Halloween at Cape Cod Museum of Natural History. This is one of my kids favorite Halloween activities. This year it is on 10/26 10am-2pm and is $5 per child ages 3-16 with adult (adults with children are free). There are activities and crafts throughout the entire museum to complete for prizes plus refreshment and a hay maze outside.
Orleans Halloween Sidewalk Stroll. On 10/26 2:30-3:30 starting at the Orleans library (after the 1:30 Toe Jam Puppet Band show) stroll through Orleans center and trick or treat at the shops. My kids love this because they get to wear their costumes during the day and walk around the center while collecting candy. After if you are not too tired there is more Halloween fun in East Orleans including hay rides.
Take a walk at the Wellfleet Audubon Sanctuary. Audubon also has lots of fun Halloween activities that you can check out here!
What are your favorite Fall activities to do?
Molly, her husband, and their 1, 6 and 8 year split their time between their little piece of the cape in Orleans and Cambridge. She was a kindergarten teacher before her oldest was born then became a SAHM. She loves running, books, supporting literacy, nature walks, arts, craft, knitting and sewing as well as being outside and on the beach!
This week Cape Kids Cast visited the Atlantic White Shark Conservatory in Chatham with special guest reporter and shark expert, Sophia. They had a great time exploring the conservatory and learning some new fun facts! They also had a chance view some great artwork by local students as well as participate in some virtual reality inside a shark cage! The Conservatory is a great place to visit and they learned so much about the amazing creatures that share our waters!
