We went road trippin' this past Labor Day weekend up to Maine with some friends. Eight adults and nine children, we all piled into the LoveSac bus and explored Maine's beaches, which are only an hour north of Boston. The boys hit up surfing one day to catch the waves from the tail-end of Hurricane Earl (although it was just a tropical storm by the time it hit New England). We ate a lot of greasy was so good especially the lobster rolls and sweet potato fries. But what was not good was the double chin and extra set of love handles that I brought home with me. No, that is not good since I'm already gaining pregnancy weight.
York beach was one of my favorites. There is a beautiful famous lighthouse, and I love how wide the beach is at low-tide.

Our lousy attempt at a family picture. I've come to accept that it is almost impossible to get a good shot of us.
The LoveSac bus was our mode of transportation. It was a riot! One of our friends owns the furniture company, and the bus so happened to be in town so we decided to take it. The kids loved it because they could lounge and watch movies on a big flat screen TV. It is quite posh inside with shaggy carpet, leopard-print cushions and black curtains. I thought it was hilarious because wherever we went, it drew attention. People thought we were rock stars, chasing and shouting after the bus. Until we opened the door and they saw a bunch of disheveled parents and rowdy children, their dreams of meeting a rock star quickly disintegrated. But we always had a good laugh.
We also went to the local zoo and amusement park and Ogunquit Beach.

She's a rockstar!!! A rockstar!!! I'm thinking of a little pink music in the background. AHH! So much fun. I bet that was definately an unforgettable trip. Did you all sleep in the Love Bus at night too?

What mirror are you looking in? You gotta get that circus mirror swapped out if that's what you're seeing. I hardly believe a double chin and extra set of love handles. That's not possible with you. Absolutely not.

Your kids are more adorable than ever - wish that Jackson and Everett could be buddies:(

You also look amazing - I had to settle for a puppy (Aaron will not agree to number 4). It is fun, but not a baby!

What a fun trip! Especially in that bus! You guys ARE adventurous... I love it! And even though your family picture isn't what you'd call "perfect" there is so much personality to it, it's awesome!
