Quick Takes #213: Maine Livin

  1. Incredibly blessed this year to manage two beach weeks. In addition to managing to get time to go to the Outer Banks with my family we were also able to get up to Maine to spend some time with Charlie's side.
  2. Traveling with a newly trained toddler means extra potty stops and traffic was worse than usual but the kids managed to keep the grumps to the minimum and the welcome was wonderfully warm.
  3. Water fun! As always the community pool at G-ma's was a hit and the boogie boards we bought earlier this summer were put to good use. Both Lisbeth and Liam have made great strides this summer and having a blast!
  4. Food as usual played a central role with Dr Daddy and his mom and sister having a lot of fun in the kitchen and all of us enjoying the amazing meals that resulted. We also went to our favorite ice cream place a few times and tried out a new one.  Local seafood one night and making s'mores another were two other highlights!
  5. One evening we drove to near by Kennebunk and visited St Ann Episcopal a lovely stone church dating from 1887 and it's beautiful outdoor chapel; an amazing place to watch a sunset. 
  6. Most importantly time with family.  The kids with their cousins and all of us together in the evenings watching the Olympics.
  7. Photo Dump!!

  1. That looks heavenly. I'm sure you made a lot of lasting memories in those two weeks!

  2. Beach time is awesome! It looks like you all had a great time! My inlaws own a rental on the Outer Banks, we always LOVE visiting.

  3. Sounds like so much fun! I've always wanted to visit Maine- especially for the seafood. :)

  4. So much fun! I always take the potty with us when we go places and just let them go in the back of the van, otherwise we are visiting every potty!

  5. Since we're in the midwest, our kids have been pining for a visit to the beach. Maybe someday! Your pictures look as fun as it sounds. :)

  6. Looks like so much fun! I love visiting the beach! <3
