Friday Photos

Not much for photos again this week. Sorry! I can't even remember everything that went on this week since it was a blur. Sunday, Alan and I celebrated our 5th anniversary. Caroline stayed over at Nana and Grampy's and Alan and I spent the evening playing tourist down in York and Wells. We came back and had dinner and came home to a quiet house. Very odd! :)
Alan took off Monday, but somehow the rest of the week just flew by. There was a lot going on, yet nothing really that exciting. Between Caroline getting better (think it was molar related since she has one coming in) and errands and late night bedroom furniture deliveries, it's Friday and I'm thankful!  Of course, we still had to tend to our garden so I did finally take some pictures of my cute little gardener :)



 We let a zucchini go and skipped the next day, oops! It was very, very large!


 So heavy!



Dandy, would you like some tea?

Photo (and movie) Friday!

We have had a busy couple of weeks here so, as you've noticed, last week we didn't have a Friday post. Partly because we were busy and partly because we really didn't take any pictures. I made up for it this week though!
All last week we had Kenny here installing our kitchen backsplash. This provided great entertainment for Caroline, but threw me for a loop. We basically stayed upstairs while he was here so we were out of his way. The picture below is actually of it almost finished, no grout, but right now it is too bright in here to get a good picture. Final verdict is it looks awesome and we love it! It is a glass tortoise shell tile.

We also had some fun playing around at home, going to our last story time at the beach, and our last camp outting with all of Caroline's cousins. They celebrated by having an ice cream social. We also finally got some boating in, since Caroline kind of went on a boat/marina strike for the month of July!

Look how big my girl is!

ME State Aquarium

On Saturday, as part of my birthday celebration, we headed up to Boothbay Harbor and went to the Maine State Aquarium. It is a small aquarium, with a few touch tanks but we thought Caroline would love it. We saw all sorts of lobsters, crabs, starfish, scallops, and fish. She wasn't big on touching them, but was so cute when she put them back into the tank. "Here you go little crabby, nice and safe." :)

Next, we headed back home and stopped to grab some lobster rolls at the famous Red's Eats. After waiting in line for 20 minutes, we heard the wait would be a total of about 1.5 hrs. Caroline was being good, but we weren't going to push it so we headed across the street to another lobster stand. Much quicker! May not have been famous, but it worked and we had a happy little girl who enjoyed dancing to the music!









Tiny 2 yr old lobster! Huge one on the bottom though!







She just kept dancing and dancing :)

Playground & Ice Cream

We decided to make a playground run last night before ending our weekend. Unfortunately, as soon as we got there the wind picked up and the sky started turning black. We did some climbing, sliding, and a little running before deciding to leave. Luckily, someone was OK with that. We decided to head for some ice cream and had to head down to Wells to Big Daddy's so we would be indoors! As Caroline would say, "It was pouring!"
For those that have no idea just how adventurous Caroline is on the playground (always going on the highest slide for months now and having no fear) I took a video of her charging for this jungle gym. She has never been to this playground so she had no idea what she was in for!

Beach to Bacon

Today was the annual Beach to Beacon 10K and we took part in our own way, the Beach to Bacon party! We skipped the running for some good food, a magic show, fun and games, and a personal visit from the ice cream man!

As you can see by the pictures, Caroline's favorite part was the ice cream man. She was talking about him before he even got there! As she states, ice cream is her first AND second favorite food!



 She called them "wiggle hoops"

So excited!



 Bliss!

Playroom Fun

We have started turning the bigger room in the main upstairs into a playroom for Caroline. We brought her slide upstairs so she could get more use of her tent inside. She has a lot of fun "resting" and reading in her tent and of course sliding!
She and I were waiting for Daddy to get home last night so I thought I'd take some video.






Photo Friday

Here is a sampling from the past weeks adventures! I'm trying out YouTube again so I don't have to cut videos all of the time.


 Ready for the beach!



 It was a little windy so someone borrowed my sweatshirt!


 Embarrassing shot of Elmo. He was also wearing her high heels!
