Parents, if you want wonderful pictures of your children, never teach them to say "cheese"! Please learn from my mistake or you will have thousands of photos just like mine - squinted eyes, scrunched up noses, clenched teeth, and an image that just screams "say cheez!!!". Join me while I search for that one perfect shot that doesn't conjure up images of dairy products. Oh, and unless you like that *messy* look, you'll probably want to clean their faces before you snap away. I never seem to remember myself.

An imporant sidenote is to make sure you document your life! Recording the little details of the who, what, where, when, & why makes for wonderful stories and captures your life for years to come. Because if you are like me, you'll forget it all 5 minutes later!

Love, love, LOVE it! Not sure exactly what it is about Maine, but it is my most favorite place in the world. I love the scenery, the quaint towns, the slower pace of life, the ocean, the lobster, the friendly people, everything. We went there this past weekend for Labor Day and had a great time. It is our 3rd year going there and I love exploring the shore line. Found some great sea glass, the kids loved hanging out and climbing on the rocky shoreline, of coarse we enjoyed some fantastic lobster rolls, and saw some magnificent light houses. The only bummer was that we didn't find my dream house, yet. For some reason no one who lives on the ocean is giving away their home! Guess I need to start buying some lotto tickets.

We spent some time in the fabulous Biddeford Pool then traveled up to Boothbay Harbor and Pemaquid Point. We did get some lobster rolls from the famous "Red's Eats" so I got to check off another place from my "1000 Places to See Before You Die, USA & Canada version" book. We're just trying to live a good, full life.
