My biggest complaint about going home (to Maine) recently is that we never do anything. It always goes something like this: Matt and I load up the car on Friday, drive an hour and a half, arrive in time for dinner with my mom and dad, leave to go to the Sither's in time for Lily to go to bed, stay up too late talking with Benn and Barb, get up on Saturday, lounge in our pj's till morning nap, head over to my mom and dads after lunch (at which point extended family drop in and out to see us), eat dinner, back to the Sither's for bed time, get up Sunday morning and drive home. I am not complaining, we love our families. But because we only see them once or twice a month we end up in the same routine (over and over and over).
Maine is a beautiful place and we never see any of it. I can't even remember the last time we went to the beach while we were home. Anyway on to the point of the post! The first weekend in June a close friend of ours invited us to join her family at their rental house in Camden. It was a lot of driving but it was so worth it. We had an amazingly relaxing time, it was just what we needed. I will let the pictures tell the story!

|Lily was less than impressed by the boats|
|At first sight she cried, then she wanted to give him a kiss|
|It was a little cold...|
|but we didn't care!!|
|Lily clearly needs a pair of flip flops.|
|not sure what to think...|
