Maine Trip #1

One of my best friends lives in Maine.
I have missed her so much and am so very thankful for our close friendship regardless of the distance between us in location. It had been nearly 3.5 years since we visited them (Leto was 4 months old) – far too long, so we quickly made plans and headed up there. The ride was very easy considering all the hours of sitting in the car with two kids. They were very well behaved, which allowed for us to get there in good time.

It was pretty windy and cold the afternoon we arrived. We went for a little walk together.
Leto and Josephine were holding hands, which was so cute. They did that on their own.

all our kids (they have two daughters, we have two sons)
Christian was showing us his kite, since it was so windy outside
It was so cute to me how all the kids seemed to get along so well.

The next day we went to the park together. We weren’t there for too long though. Micah had fun on this dinosaur
Leto and Rob, they had just been playing in the sand there.

Christian and Rob talking about who knows what. Probably music the way those two are.
