"Why don't you take a vacation with your children?" Asked my mother. Spoiler alert, after this weeklong vacation in the same house with my kids, my little brother and little sister may never have children.
BUT, we actually had a lot of fun! Typically I never bring my camera along with me when I'm not on the job. This has changed recently, thanks to my inspiring friend, Kelly Joyce, who specializes in lifestyle family photography. Our kids are the same age, so when we bring our kids to the orchard in the fall or to the local gardens in the spring, Kelly brings her camera! I figured I have 7 adults to 2 toddlers, why not bring my camera? It always helps to have someone else looking after them so that I can take their picture.
We spent a week in a house next to the beautiful Camden Library in picturesque Maine. Every day was an adventure with our little explorers! We went sailing on the Appledore Schooner, where my ambitious 4 year old volunteered to raise the sails. Lobster shacks, wineries, lakes, and dipping our toes in the freezing cold ocean were just a few more things we got to experience in beautiful Maine. Next year, Mom says she's staying for a month. Can't wait to explore some more!
