It Really Was a Labor Weekend For the Grandparents

We finally took the kids up to my parents' house in Maine on Sebago Lake. Summer plans, sick kids, difficulty traveling while on O2 all conspired to push our first visit out until the last unofficial weekend of the summer.

My parents really brought their A-Game. The kids were fed and entertained and Husband and I got some down time. As you can see we needed it:





Penny spent lots of quality time with her Bumpa.



Ned was stuffed full of Sunday pancake breakfast made by Grammy.



The tykes enjoyed various "adult" activities including a ride in a motor boat, splashing in a jacuzzi and playing with wine (ahem, corks). My parents started to appreciate what it means to "baby-proof" a room again.







I am a bit hesitant about next year when they are walking since the house is nothing but outdoor rocks (with fall-offs into the water) and rock-made stairs but I'm sure we'll go up for at least a couple of weekends.

My favorite is the big old glass of wine in front of you in the first picture. Hope you enjoyed it!

Glad you got some down-time! We, too, were in Maine visiting my parents who watched the twins for a few hours so we could go fishing. There's nothing like a little bit of peace every once in awhile!
