Another year of Maine in the books! The kids are all old enough to remember going last year, which helps build their excitement for the next trip.
This year we were frantically cleaning up, fixing up, packing up our old house so the new tenants could move in while we were away. So, we
threw some things in the car packed in record time and hit the road an hour after the kids finished their last day of school.
Along the road we joined up with my sister Amy and her family, stopping for dinner and ice cream.
We arrived at the cabin after dark and found the electricity was out, though it was back within half an hour so we unpacked and made up beds.
I still love early mornings, even when I'm on vacation.
Let the fields be jubilant, and everything in them; let all the trees of the forest sing for joy.
