I was missing my best friend, so last weekend we took a trip to Maine to visit Michelle. Unlike our home in San Diego, Michelle's place in Portland is pretty remote, so the weekend involved a lot of nature, exploring the yard, cooking homemade meals, and good old fashioned family time. It was lovely, a real bonding experience for both me and Axel with our friends, plus I always feel so proud of him when we travel alone together - he did great!
Axel and Cora baking muffins
Gardening = finding the prize . . . BUGS!!
We hiked up a mountain at the state park and then took a snack break at the top
Colin is definitely a cuddler
These kids take their yard work VERY seriously!
Best part about grocery shopping is holding the umbrella and the vitamins
. . . does this kid have it all figured out or what? ;)
Axel had a very enthusiastic coach for the potty training,
because his many successes led to Cora getting treats too
Gotta say the Boston airport gets a 10 for having an awesome kids play area.
And lucky for me, Captain Axel had a perfect flight home.
