Weekend Getaway

Hey Everyone!
What a great weekend!
We took a drive up North to see friends who invited us up for the weekend; Well, we left after my husband’s job Saturday night and returned home last night around 7PM. This friend is my husband’s bestie from HS, and his family house is up in Weld, Maine, about 3.5 hours away, which isn’t such a bad ride. This was our third time together up there, once when our kids were 3yr and 1yr, and then last year.  We had such a great time last year, our kids especially. So much so, that we had to make this trip this Summer for the kids.
This trip was great.  I never relaxed so much in such a short amount of time ever.  Never.  My only goal this weekend was to enjoy some downtime with friends, eat and drink like I was 26, and maybe, maybe, get a tan.  We spent one full day there flanked by the two nights, and that one full day was literally the best Summer day!  It started off cool but then progressively got warmer and sunnier, till it felt like 85 by 11 AM(though it was only 76~).  Their house is right on Webb Lake, literally.  You walk out the back porch to a ten foot patch of grass then boom there is the sandy beach overlooking this massively beautiful lake and mountains-scape.  There were times Sunday that I was alone on the beach,  just getting lost looking at the view; watching an eagle fly by or listening to a family of loons squawking in the distance.    I’d then realize where I was and just get lost again looking at the sun glimmering off the water.  JUST PERFECT

Here is a slide show of the weekend.  You can click through or let it stream, that is up to you!  🙂

Next time you hear from me here I will be back to the Cape for one last Summer week away, ending the week with my husband’s big 40th bday party!  Wooo! Then it is our last Summer weekend with Labor Day and then IT’S BACK TO SCHOOL!  The girls go back September 7 this year.  We haven’t had an after Labor Day start since my oldest started Kindergarten.  Which is great!  Except it’s my baby’s big tenth birthday on the first day, which she keeps groaning about.  So I am going to try my best to make it the greatest first day of school ever for her.  On the flip side, my oldest is going into her first year at the middle school, and she can’t contain her excitement.  We literally haven’t had a day go by where she hasn’t talked about starting school- I had to take her supply shopping already!!  (She is an academically inclined kid, very smart, so she keeps telling me in a sweet way how much she likes Summer, but can’t wait for school to start cause she LOOOOOOOVES school.  Yes, she is my child!! tyvm).  
I can’t believe I just talked about back to school, it’s still Summer here!! No more jumping ahead.  
And.. Yup, I married a young one. :)~ 
Ok, tty all real soon!  xxoxoxoxo
