Maine recap

We just got back from spending the last five days in Maine, at my parents' place. All of my family was there, which made it extra special:)

This is my new favorite picture of E. This was at the neighbors' pool.

With my brother and SIL, watching my nephews' sailing lessons.

And of course, since we were in Maine, we had to have Lobster. Yum...

And three people celebrated birthdays- My Dad, my BIL Don, and Miss Elizabeth( who unbelievably will be 7 on the 11th).


And on the 4th, we went to a parade where my little fashionista wore this adorable new outfit from Grandma.

That night we had a rainstorm, and woke up on Saturday morning to no power. Luckily, my parents' wonderful neighbors with generators let us use their showers, and refrigerators and freezers! My mom had planned a party with all the neighbors at our house for that night, but with no power, she almost cancelled it. However, one of the neighbors generously offered to let her move the party to their house. We all ended up having a great time, and the kids got to use the fire crackers and sparklers they hadn't been able to use the night before when it was raining.

This morning we very reluctantly hit the road to head the five hours back home. Elizabeth was especially sad to leave. She'd had such a fun time with the family and the friends she made.

Bye for now, Maine. It was fabulous as always! Hoping we can make it up again this summer.
