Aaron and I (and his Aunt and the kids) had a perfect anniversary weekend. We stayed in a cottage in Bayside, ME - near Camden. It was absolutely beautiful. Our bedroom overlooked the water, we were within walking distance of the beach... and everyone did wonderful sleeping (thank god). I forgot Maggie's meds, so of course when she was upset on Saturday and Sunday, I was nervous that it was her reflux. But she slept great both nights, so I think she is getting better on the that front (and also the meds are long lasting, so I think that they had some impact even though she didn't get any).

We arrived on Friday and explored the little community, and of course, went out for lobsters for dinner. We were in Maine! We sat down for dinner at 7 (Cam's normal bedtime) but he was such a trooper. Everyone slept great once we got home - but Maggie was up at 4:30 for her bottle (I could complain, but I was feeding her on the porch over looking the ocean and a beautiful sunrise). She went right back to sleep - but Cam then woke up at 5:30. So - we had an early start! While Aaron and Mary showered and got ready for the day, I took the kids down to the water, and MAN did Cam love that. throwing rocks in, filling up his bucket... such a cutie. We spent the rest of the morning exploring the area. Got back to the cottage for naptime - and everyone got in a little nap.

We then went to Francine for dinner while Mary stayed with the kids - what a wonderful place. They printed us out our own special anniversary menu (same menu - it just said Happy Anniversary on the top - but what a nice touch). We talked and laughed and just had a good time.

Sunday we all woke up, cleaned up and packed up and let cam got say BYE BYE to the beach (too cute) and had a great ride home. We stopped in Portland, ME for lunch - and both kids slept and relaxed in the car. The list of things that I was worried about was SO long, and the weekend went off without a hitch. So wonderful.
