Back to School

Back to School

Happily Sadly my girls went back to school last week!  They seemed to be in such a daze, probably because they were exhausted from our Labor Day weekend adventure!

After 2 years we finally took our trailer out for a trip to Maine with friends.  Naples Family Campground provided us with an amazing and friendly campground near Lake Sebago.

Saturday we went to Monkey Trunks in Saco, ME – here’s my gang getting their instructions!

Here’s the entire set up:

This place is amazing – high rope climbing at its best! The highlight was Don’s achieving one of his bucket list item – a zipline!

They all did great!  Definitely something we’ll do again!

Sunday we planned a tandem kayak trip thru LL Bean’s Freeport store but woke up to rain – pouring rain.  That didn’t stop my gang though and LL Bean was prepared!  They provide us with these amazing coats and skirts for the kayaks that kept us bone dry!  The 3 ½ hour kayak trip was exhausting but fun!  We actually saw a Harbor seal, Osprey and a baby Bald Eagle!  J was so excited about seeing the Bald Eagle I think she almost jumped out of the kayak!  I wish I had pictures of it, but because it rained so badly on and off it wasn’t an ideal situation for a camera!  I would definitely do more of these LL Bean outdoor school trips – what a great time!

That afternoon Don went to get lobsters – oh and for those of you who are not from New England that’s pronounced LAB-STAHS!  There were actually signs spelled that way! LOL!  Well he got stung by a bee on his back!!  The poor thing isn’t allergic, but per our doctor the bees are ‘in rare form this year’ so they’re stinging with vengeance – bee fair warned!  He’s in lots of pain!

So a very happy family weekend in Maine but exhausting.  Now we’re back into the swing of things – school, dance, scouts – and things are going well.  Hope you had a great Labor Day weekend!  Have a Magical Day!
