just wanted to share some pictures of our VACAY.. I promise I won’t bore you to death.. And AJ TOOSDAY will come laytah.. promise!
So we went to Ogunquit, Maine, as I mentioned…. beach, hotel, LOBSTAH, great weathAH.. who could ask for more? On our way to Ogunquit, we stopped in Albany and in Boston… have I mentioned how much I LOOOVE Boston? But first a little bit about Albany..
We stayed at the holiday inn and When I saw the room key .. I said, this was meant to be.. I NEEDED that room key with me at all times!
And here is the menu
I knew that only good things were to happen from there.. a little foreshadowing..
And now a little bit about Boston!
Here's a pic of Jayden and I in Boston eating at a cafe at the waterfront near the Aquarium
Of course in Boston, we had to visit the BEST PLACE ON EARTH.. Jayden was so excited but I think I was even more excited..SHHH.
and OF COURSE we had to leave with a new doll and corresponding backpack
And now for Maine… I can’t explain how I feel when I go to Maine.. it brings back wonderful childhood memories.. the smell.. the shops.. the food.. I just feel like I “belong” there.. if that makes sense.
Here is Ryan and the kidlets piled high in da JACUZZI at our hotel
BURIED alive... they were FORCED to get along here..LOL
the view from my PERCH.. we bought me an umbrella and a beach chair.. but not JUST a beach chair.. THE BIG KAHUNA beach chair..LOL.. to fit BIG KAHUNA bottoms..LOL. Under the umbrella, fully dressed, with 60SPF I still got roasted .. me no likey da beachy. I would find a GOOD JUICY place on the beach and watch beach drama... people arguing etc.. it was fun..LOL
Also from my PERCH.. did a little Picasso'ing..LOL
kids playing in the water... but there aren't any SHELLS on this beach.. what's up wit dat? I WANTED TO COLLECT SHELLS!
Tyler was OBSSESSED with catching little crabs...
I love this shot of Jayden
Jayden was the "welcome wagon" in Perkins Cove
the excitement of wearing a BIB and look cool at the same time
So listen to this story.. You listening? K. The first night we got there we went straight for a lobster meal.. Of course Jayden who lives on Mac and Cheese was gagging at ocean/seafood smells but Tyler, who also RARELY tries new foods decided that this vacation, he would be 'adventurous'.. Sure enough he tried the lobster as you see that night and LOVED IT.. now I can't tell you if he loved the "concept" that he was eating lobster, LOL. or that he really liked the taste.. but a parent NEVAH questions these things right? Right.. So of course as the week progresses, Tyler, the LOBSTAH EATAH was annoying us to go for lobster again. So the night before we left, we went to Perkins Cove with Jayden gagging at the smell LOL (and when I write LOL, I really am LOL'ing) and Tyler marching proudly to the restaurant. So he and Ryan go to order and pay while Jayden and I wait. Tyler was able to PET the lobster.. to STROKE the lobster (the guy took it out of the tank for him) and do everything with this lobster .. I think he even named it. Then the lobster was flung into the steamer.. Tyler came back all proud that he "met" his lobster. So when "fred" the lobster came to the table, tyler started chewing but I saw that something wasn't 'right'... all of a sudden he BURST into tears and advised that he couldn't eat FRED. We were done with lobsters.
so that’s a little snapshot of our week!
Glad I could share with you
