Maine Getaway

All summer, Aiden talked about going fishing at the cabin in Maine. The summer was full of camps and work schedules and deadlines and other life things. But finally we stole a couple days and headed up.

This was the first time in many years that we were there with just our immediate family. The teens girls had never been to Maine and it brought other "firsts", such as riding in a canoe. They aren't exactly wilderness girls because...bugs, but they were good sports.

One of the days we announced we were going to hike Big Moose Mountain. There were mixed reactions and ability levels, but in about four hours we all made it up and we all made it back. As a bonus, no one got hurt! 



Not surprisingly, they've all grown several inches.

We stopped off in Freeport on our way home to visit LL Bean. There was plenty going on in the main square, so we stayed for a while, enjoying the beautiful day.

It was a nice getaway after a difficult summer in many ways and a nice deep breath just before the start of a new school year.
