Last Days of Summer: Labor Day in Maine

Traditionally, Labor Day marks the end of summertime. Usually, this is a major bummer. But this year, I think my family had a pretty awesome summer, making it a little easier to watch it go.

Some of this summer's highlights:

  1. Emmett got his first buzz cut.

  2. James and I got engaged and started planning our wedding. (Have I directed you to our wedding website yet?)

  3. We visited with Cousin Gus, Aunt A and Uncle Mac in Michigan.

  4. Emmett took swim lessons.

  5. We had Emmett's first trip to the Jersey shore with Nana, Gran-D and Aunt Niki.


A couple of days in Maine with Gran Lucy, Grandpa Mac, Uncle Shawn, Aunt Sara and Cousin Ben were a great way to top off the summer. We enjoyed a yummy lobster feast (and learned just how much Emmett enjoys corn on the cob), spent some time on the beach and the boat, did some shopping in Freeport for Emmett's fall wardrobe, and mainly just relaxed.

Who else is looking forward to toddlers playing in piles of leaves in the fall and making snowmen in the winter? I know Em and I are.
