And as soon as I find them....I will share. Rest assured, they are hilarious. Sean isn't tall enough for the bench in the booth, and Will chose a background that cuts off all of us in varying degrees. Still, a good time was had by all.
You can cram in a bunch of activities on a short vacation. We went to the beach, drove up Mount Battie in Camden, Maine, explored Camden and Belfast's quaint downtowns, eat at lovely restaurants and taverns (well, the tavern wasn't so lovely. But I digress.) AND hit two local yarn shops. :) The yarn shop in Belfast was small but cram-jammed with local Maine yarns, and a super-pleasant shop owner who brought out a small electronic piano for Sean to jam on while Mom perused the skeins. And the other shop....lovely as well. It also turns out that they offer occasional knitter cruises on the harbour. You can bet that I joined their mailing list!
Sean playing with the flying tricycle, downtown Belfast.
Will takes a turn on the flying tricycle. (It was bolted into place.)
Boys by the harbor in Belfast. They really are growing too fast.
Dinner in Camden: "Mom, I think that this hanging plant is trying to turn me into a vegetarian."
Playing in tents at the sports store, Rockport.
Big hug or flying tackle? You decide.

Mount Battie in Camden was lovely at the top, with breathtaking views of the harbour. We found a shady place to sit and have lunch, and read some more of the first Harry Potter book. (Will's been begging for about a year to read it, and I relented at our last library trip. We read a little out loud every day, and he's quickly becoming an obsessed fan, chatting excitedly about all of the characters. His favorite is Ron Weasley, BTW)
It's not exactly pretty, but it's a castle. And we had a ton of fun building it. The boys collected rocks and seashells to decorate, and then we all helped out in creating this "masterpiece." The moat didn't stay full very long, but then again it never does.
