Fun in the Sun is Done (PictureFest!)

It is Monday, and I am not at the beach...that must mean that I am back at home trying to re-establish some semblance of a routine.

We had a great vacation up in Maine. We try to go there each year with Jonathan's side of the family. Each year it is much of the same, but it is always a good time. (Link to last year's post)

The weather did not disappoint us again this year, so there were many great beach days! 

Charlie and Paige had a great time jumping in the waves, building sand castles, and hunting for sea creatures.

Anna was happy as a clam in her little pool that we brought with us.  This turned out to be a great solution for Anna.  We put a little water in the pool so it would not be freezing cold like the ocean, placed it under an umbrella, and let her play till she was pruny all over!

We also made it down to the pier for some rides.  Charlie, Paige, and cousins, Eliza and Hudson, were thrilled. 

Anna...Not so much.

She was not happy with them at all!!  I guess I can look at the bright side and see this as we don't have to waste money on silly rides for Anna. =)

We even managed a round of golf in the Annual Salvation Army Golf Tournament.  Despite not having played since last year, I won the longest drive. Woot! Woot!  It was about my only contributing shot of the day...but that is beside the point =)

And now, the countdown until school begins.  Charlie has just over 3 1/2 weeks before he starts, and Paige about 4.  Still plenty of summer left!!


  1. Great pics!! Looks like you all had a wonderful time! As fast as the summer may seem to go, it's great to look back and see all the wonderful memories that were made!! (still bummed that we missed out on one of those memories)

    Enjoy the rest of the summer!!

  2. What a fantastic vacation! Poor Anna she really didn't like the rides did she? Love the pool idea for her! Very clever!
    We only have 3 DAYS left of summer before Aidan starts on Friday.
    Enjoy some more summertime for us.

  3. Such great pictures! Love the one's of little Anna not so happy on the rides! Good job on your winning the longest drive!!

  4. Looks like you had a great vacation!! I have only been to Maine once but I loved it!
