Maine Vacation 2013!
You can check out previous years here:
On the way up, we stopped at a restaurant on the way that both Gramma Mindy and my Mom had been to years and years ago...it was a nice little roadside diner type place, that was fun, and featured some killer shakes and desserts...
Finally we ended up at the cabin, and we started the week off with lovely weather. This year it was me, Mom, Dad, Gramma Mindy, Uncle Mat, Aunt Mallory, and their dogs Marley and April...
Right off the bat, we were visited by a family of ducks that came by to get the bread we fed them. The dogs were so excited, and Mat Mallory and I kept the ducks around by giving them so much bread.
...and then I assembled them together with my chocolate and graham crackers....DELICIOUS!
The next day, even though it was cold, Uncle Mat jumped into the lake....his exact words were that it was "bracing" whatever that means....he was a brave guy to be jumping into such a cold lake.
Mom and Dad and I took a couple opportunities to take the kayaks out again...
Hey....check out what I can do! It only took me three tries to hurt myself, but while I was doing it, I felt pretty cool...I was suspended between the chair and the side table, seemingly floating in zen-like serenity. Cool, right? I was in the zone, man.
Rainy days also meant some time chilling out playing video games on Dad's iPod, while Aunt Mallory encouraged me. She was knitting during her stay in the cabin, and it looked like she found that to be a very relaxing hobby.
And then we were off! Vicious rain storms slowed our travel, but we carried on towards home (and a nice visit to Gramma Debbie's) watching movies, reading books, and playing with toys.
We stopped at a Wendy's to have the world's slowest lunch (I socialize when I eat! Sorrrrry....) and Mom built me my new motorcycle toy that I got in my kids meal....
