Amazing Vacation!

We had the most amazing vacation ever! We haven't been on a real vacation since we took Emma to Disney when she was one (highly recommend that by the way!) We had the opportunity to rent a friend's camp on Madawaska Lake in Stockholm Maine...yes...that far up in Maine. I had actually expected to be completely cut off from the rest of the world. Surprisingly, that wasn't the case. The city of Caribou was just a short 15 minute drive south, and then the much larger city of Presque Isle was an additional 15 minutes from Caribou. Caribou had a Tim Horton's with free wi-fi, which I utilized on a couple of occasions...just to make sure the sky wasn't falling with all the debt ceiling stuff you know!

So here is our week in pictures!

Getting ready to go...we packed little yaris as much as humanly possible :-)

The camp!

Where we spent most of our time - the porch...

and the lake...

Scenery while driving around New Sweden:

One of the favorite places to sit and watch the lake:

First s'mores got messy...

Emma decided to feed the ducks one day...they decided to come at the exact. same. time. every day following...

My little dare devil would scoot right out up to his neck in the lake if we turned our head for one second...perhaps life jackets would have been appropriate at this point...

Can I also include escape artist? We didn't have enough room for baby gates, so we took all the chairs and tried to block things wasn't as successful as I had hoped...

Overall, it was an amazing, relaxing week and we can't wait to go back!

  1. Looks absolutely amazing :) Glad you guys could get away for a family vacation together and looks like the kiddos had a blast too. I bet those ducks were sad to see y'all leave. The house looked absolutely wonderful!
