I have lots of catching up to do. Calder and I went to Maine a few weeks ago for my cousin's wedding. It was a quick trip, only 3 nights, but what a wonderful time we had! It was Calder's first plane trip too, and it was full of surprises to say the least. BUT, I did have a blast with my girl and she was such a little trooper. I love spending quality time with her like that, even if it's on a broken plane in the runway for a few hours or delayed flights at the airport.
I promised my mom (and my Aunt Bev) that I'd blog about our weekend trip to Maine, so this post is for you!
The first morning we were there it was cold (especially compared to Mobile heat that is) and very foggy, so we sported our colorful PJ's on the beach for an early morning walk with grandaddy. That little walk cracks me up! And her "bam-bam" hairdo is a result of a fit she pitched when I tried to put it up...so that was the best we could do!
How sweet is this photo? Those two, I swear, have the sweetest little relationship.
And then it magically cleared up, despite all bad weather forecasts, a blue sky appeared. Don't you just love when that happens?
We stayed at this adorable bed & breakfast (see below) right on the beach. I just LOVE Kennebunkport. See this post about our recent trip to Kennebunkport for my other cousins wedding, Ben. Aunt Bev has 3 boys and their wedding's have been back to back years, so we've been spoiled with several fun trips to Maine. On a side note: My aunt Beverly owns the most amazing shop, Antiques on Nine. See this post for details. If you haven't been — you must visit this adorable town some time!
The rehearsal dinner was truly magical. It was at Bev and Jon's house—and was such a perfect celebration of Will and April. The lobster rolls were out of this world, and every detail was so creative and thoughtful — just like the groom and his bride. I wish I took more pics, but I was busy chasing this little girl around in her lobster dress!
Dad was our babysitter for the weekend and he left early with Calder so she could go night-night, and the girls stayed up and drank wine and talked!
I just love my cousin Katherine. We had a great time catching up and I just wish Mobile and Nashville were closer together!
Having fun with the groom, Will
...with my lobster shoes on of course (a gift from aunt bev at my baby shower that has been put to much use!)
here we are at the reception. every single was perfect! again, wish i took more pics!
loving on her susu
the beautiful bride and groom!
And here we are on our way back home. Such a short trip but worth every minute it took to get there...and then some! Calder had the biggest crush on this precious boy at the airport. Thank you for entertaining her for so long!
And thanks for all of the memories, Main! Until next time...
