This morning, we packed a small suitcase and took a much-needed break from the woods, embarking on a trip to Maine to see our friends, Mike and Eliza. I have been psyched about this mini Maine vacation for weeks! Now that we live in Vermont, we're only a four-hour drive away. What a thrill it is to be able to go to Maine for the weekend like it's no big thing.
The next couple of days are bound to be packed with summer fun. Tonight, we kicked it off with a trip to the Ossipee Valley Fair. What better way to begin a mini-vacation than with great friends, nauseating rides, pig-calling contests (I volunteered to be a judge), oxen-pulling competitions, and deep-fried everything!?
Tomorrow, we're going to the ocean! I have my bathing suit and my copy of Moby Dick all ready to go!
