|Our Coast Guard friends from Louisiana came to visit for a long weekend! We had so much fun showing|
them the Maine way of life!
|Our cool tide pool finds!|
|Higgins Beach - one of my favorite spots this summer!|
|Do you think Callum enjoys the water? He just rolls around in the tide pools on the shore!|
|Mairead showing off our first harvests from our garden - cucumbers & zucchini!|
|Lilah & Clara all excited for a sleepover at my parents. |
This was Clara's very first sleepover - she absolutely LOVED it!
|Our niece Olivia's Baptism|
|Lobstering on the Lucky Catch! One of our favorite things to do in the summer!|
|It's amazing to think when we started Lobstering how little our girls were...they're so grown up...|
|Not quite a keeper, but he sure wanted to stay :)|
|Mairead and her new hanging bed - I promise I'll do a post on the hows.......whys.......and the coolness of this thing!|
|Ahhhh.....felt like I was 21 again! Hadn't waterskied in years, but pretended I was back on the team....and boy, did I pay|
for it the next few days! I was SORE!
|Mairead and her friend out for Mairead's first tubing experience!|
|I was so shocked Clara wanted to go on the tube! The girls had a blast! We're so lucky to have such|
great friends who let us in on all the fun!
|This pretty much sums up my life...and boy, is it fantastic!|
|Seriously. Can it get any more beautiful?|
|Did I say sandy toes above? I think I meant wrinkly ones...|
|Not too often our kids get to have all four grandparents together....so it was a special treat to have all of them|
together for a sunset cruise out on Casco Bay! It was a beautiful night...
|Ok, so when did he lose his baby-ness????? I am not ready for him to|
grow up....someone, please stop time.
|My beautiful Mairead...thankfully her personality has been a lot more beautiful, too!|
|Kevin's shot of me....|
|And my cheesy Lilah Loo....|
|One of the most genuine smiles you'll see from Clara...|
|Portland Head Lighthouse - view from Casco Bay|
|and a perfect night it was...|
|A moment with Papa Steve|
|Just moments after sunset|
|Mimi & Papa!|
|"Want a flower mamma?"|
|...and well, this will need a blog post of its own, but yes, this is Lilah, playing soccer...in a tutu.|
As you can see, we have had an amazing month. It was so difficult choosing which photographs to show, but, it's been fun. It's hard to believe school starts next week. And well, I am not quite ready for this next chapter. I've really enjoyed (for the most part) having my kiddos home with me...enjoying time together and learning new things. I guess all good things must come to an end sometime, right?
