Weekend in Maine - Toddler Style

This weekend we spent a few days at my parents' house in Maine, right on Sebago Lake. The kids loved spending time with their grandparents and it was wonderful to have other people to distract the kids. One morning my dad got up with Ned and Penny at 5:30 am (!) and let Husband and me sleep in. Josephine even shocked us by sleeping through the night both nights we were there (time will tell if this was a fluke).

Lunch at Two Lights Lobster Shack - where the kids enjoyed putting rocks on the benches.

Leaving the dock for an afternoon cruise:

Ned driving the boat:

Penny didn't like the boat as much as Ned did but she did look adorable in her life vest.

Josephine fell asleep both times we went on the boat - immediately - even if she just woke up from a nap.

Ned with the ducks that came over to say hello:

Sometimes Ned and Penny play together nicely:

Family dinners can be chaotic but baby wearing can help. I'm sure Josie didn't mind the corn kernels.

Bath time - hot tub style:

Breakfast - Bumpa style:

Perusing his Thomas the Tank Engine catalog:

Visiting a local train store:

Seeing a Maine moose:

Looks like you guys had a great time! I am so sorry that I did not get to see you guys. Very poor planning on my part. I am looking forward to our playdate in a couple of weekends though!

What a fun weekend getaway! And I'll have to try that babywearing at a restaurant idea.

Love the pic of Dad in the hot tub with the kids. Looks like it was a fantastic weekend, I'm jealous we don't live closer so that we can do the same :-).
