The summer of 2017 was a good one, filled with lots of beautiful weather and fun times! We’re approaching Labor Day weekend and school is about to begin, so I wanted to post a few memorable moments from the summer. We kicked off the summer with a trip to Santa’s Village. We all wore red shirts for the family photo, but it sure came in handy keeping track of everybody! The kids had a great time riding all the rides and we captured a great family photo for the Christmas card.
We enjoyed many nights at camp this summer. Caden really took to fishing this year and I think our favorite part of fishing was cooking up the white perch and having a fish fry! The boys couldn’t fry the fish fast enough for this hungry family. It was delicious! Caden learned how to water ski this summer and Mom and Dad dusted off the old skis to show the kids that we “still had it!” We also had the aches and fatigue after 5 minutes! We also fished with Mammy and Bampy Fitz on the party boat. Caden out fished Bampy, but was very humble about it:) Many summer nights spent kayaking and swimming and cooking s’mores around the campfire!
Jessica, Addie, and Wells drove to Maine for a week in July. It was so good to reconnect with my old friend and for our children to get to know each other. Mia and Addie were inseparable! We enjoyed time at camp, walked down Main Street to visit the Maine Made Shop and have lunch at the Unicorn. Had an adult night at the Proper Pig and went to the island for lobster. We packed in a lot during that week!
And, last but not least, we made it to the beach a few times this year! Visited Owl’s Head twice and made our annual trip to Morse Mountain and Popham Beach. Unfortunately, we didn’t get a spot to park this year, so we went to the state park and walked down the beach quite a distance for a nice spot. We enjoyed playing in the sand, walking the beach, playing “horse shells” and building a fort out of driftwood! It was a fun day spent as a family and I cherish these times even more now that Siena has moved out.
Happy Summer! Until next year!
