Wow, Sunday again already? This week flew by. Not only was it the kids’ final week of summer hols, but Niek and I also took time off work to do up all the coolest family fun that we hadn’t managed to fit into the summer already. Over on Facebook, I tried to keep a daily tab on what we were doing (mainly so I could remember – nothing like a whirlwind of activity to scatter my mind!). We enjoyed time with my Daddy at his summer place, had my aunties and mom over here for a gala barbecue and picnic, went to the Blue Hill Fair, put in a day at the water fun park, and had a stay-at-home games day to touch on a few highlights. Nicky and Arden got bunkbeds (now why haven’t I gotten a picture of that – there’s nothing cuter than brothers and bunkbeds, is there?), I got a new computer (yay!), everyone got the remainder of their school clothes and supplies, Jim celebrated his birthday (sadly, he’s in Arizona), and no one got a sunburn. LOL. I don’t have too many pictures to share because I managed to forget my camera nearly every time we went out, but here are a few.
The kids posing for a birthday picture greeting to Jim. You’ll notice Max is holding a yard stick … when Jim got home from his (chaotic) visit with us in June, he said he thought he wasn’t standing up straight when comparing his height to Max’s and that he’s pretty sure he’s actually taller. Max is ready for the re-match.
Here are the kids enjoying the sort of coastal food that makes this part of Maine famous, and rightfully so.
We enjoyed the Blue Hill fair tremendously, but I forgot my camera. One of those forehead-slapping moments when I can’t help but wonder if senility has laid down its first tentacles. However, I did get a great photobomb picture of Ro and Nick the following day:
And we had a blast at the water park. Arden, initially too frightened to even venture into the water, wound up going down the slide by himself three times before calling it a day and working on a 300 piece puzzle he’d brought along. Nick and Rowen stayed in nearly till the closing bell.
Although there aren’t a lot of pictures to look back on, we’ve ended the week with smiles on our faces and happy memories in our hearts. I hope your Labor Day weekend has been spent in the company of people you love doing the things that you feel are important!
Thanks for visiting!!
