Sitting on the Dock of the Bay.....

My absence can be explained by the title of this post.....we were very blessed and got to spend a week in a cottage on the Harbor in Maine.  Following a crazy busy weekend event for Kiki's Garden on July 21st, the kids and I snuck off to Maine to enjoy some R and R in a one bedroom cottage my good friend snagged in a silent auction.  For $500 we had this cottage over the sea (depending on the tides) for a whole week and it was simply AMAZING!
For the first few days, the kids and I flew solo.  My friend Sarah lives down the street so we spent a lot of time with she and her two children.  The four kids got a long GREAT and had so much fun together.  As Sarah said, it was so nice to be able to say, "See You Tomorrow!" each day instead of, "Talk to you Soon" :)  Sarah also spoiled me rotten with a homemade birthday cake and a super cool gift!!
On Thursday night we picked Scott up at the train station.  The kids jumped up and down as he got off the train which made the entire train car smile.  He was greeted with lots of hugs and a Lobster Roll :)  We then spent the next 4 days together.....so much fun!
Our week included:  dinners with friends, swimming in the harbor (COLD), making fairy houses on Mackworth Island, tide pooling, watching clammers, a day trip to visit my second parents at their lake house, exploring mudflats, bird watching at the Audubon, an island ferry ride, lobster rolls, anniversary lobster dinner, 3 visits to LLBean including 2 in our jammies, a rainy day exploration of Popham beach (we were swimming on the land), Scott's first surfing lesson and an AWESOME beach day on our last day.

It was a jam packed family vacation and one that we will NEVER forget!
