Welcome to Maine!
 It took us about an hour and fifteen minutes to get to Maine.  And it was so worth the drive.
 Lauren fake throwing up. The things they do to keep entertained when the Ipod is out of batteries.

Today is our 12 year Anniversary. So we thought it would be fun to drive to Maine and go to the beach. We found this really cool beach called Ogunquit. It is a really beautiful beach. The water is really clear(comparatively speaking) and the sand is soft. It was one of the funnest days!!! It was perfect!

 Elle was starving when we first got there.
 Lauren and Parker were the first to test out the water.  The water is sooooo cold, but fun still.  You get numb after awhile.
 Just love this girl!
 Parker loved boogie boarding.
 Elle loved posing for the camera.

 Kate loves to jump over the waves. This time she got Lauren to do it with her.
 Parker feeling good about his boogie boarding skills.
 Not so much now

 Wipe out!!
 Poor kid can't even open his eyes, and I'm just clicking away. 
 Elle loved to run and get on the boogie board and coast around.
The kids love pulling each other on the boogie boards.

Catch up time

It's been awhile since I have blogged. There are a lot of pictures here, but I wanted to include them all for the Blog book.
 Elle played in mud!
 At the zoo!

 Lauren running at her 4th grade track meet.
 Parker mowing the lawn
 I'm sure the frog just loved being on Parker's head.
 We had an indoor campout.  Kids loved making smores.
 Elle thought it was best to take hers apart, which got REALLY messy.
 This is a fan tent that the kids turned into a clubhouse.
 Lauren and Parker are playing with the sponge bombs that I made for them.

 Kate is running through the kid wash that Dustin made.
 Elle fell asleep while out running errands. I put her on the couch when we got home and somehow she ended up like this.  And sleep this way for awhile.
 Lauren built a box around Kate.
And Kate loved it!!
