Our Summer Trip 2012

by MARIA on July 28, 2012

Time flies when you’re having fun – this is never more true than when you’re on vacation.

We just got back from a week away to Kennebunkport, Maine and Boston – it was so fantastic.

As I’m currently under a pile of laundry and unpacking, I’ll leave you with some highlights for now:

  • The 5yo lost two teeth during the trip – one in Maine and one somewhere in the car on the way home (tooth is still M.I.A.).
  • The 8yo decided that “smiling with teeth is stupid” and refused to smile in most pics – the ones he is smiling in required bribery on my part. I’m ok with that.
  • Going to a beach on a windy, cloudy day DOES NOT MEAN you don’t require sunscreen. Worst burn ever doesn’t even begin to cover it.
  • There are no freakin’ bugs in Maine – seriously, not a single mosquito was seen during our entire trip – it was HEAVEN!!!
  • Peeing “in da ocean is amazing.”
  • There is NO Starbucks in Kennebunkport. I repeat, NO STARBUCKS.
  • Watching my husband rediscover his love of taking pictures was absolutely a highlight.
  • Having said husband take the same pic I would take with my camera because he had the “better camera”…. not a highlight.
  • $3 cupcakes are overrated.
  • Only in Boston can you stand next to a giant noodle. Yeah, I’m still confused by this one myself.

More to come!

Boston and Maine are a dream vacation for me! Glad to be able to live vicariously through your trip. ;) Where was the giant mac and cheese noodle?

We’ve stayed in Biddeford, ME, before (not far from Kennebunkport) and there were TONS of mosquitoes. I think you got lucky!

The giant mac & cheese sculpture was in Quincy Market in Boston. I still have no idea why that’s there.

I laughed so hard at the part about the missing tooth. Absolutely hysterical!
