Maine: A Family & Friends Summer Vacation

We spent last week in Kennebunk Port, Maine with our friends The Kennedys. You have seen oodles of pictures of them on here as Caileigh is Adelaide's best friend and Aidan was born the day before Aspen. Whitney & I have become great friends as have Tommy & Ryan. So when we wanted to go on vacation to Maine, I asked if they would like to join us.

We all stayed in a little lake house on Kennebunk Pond with a nice deck, firepit, and dock for boating/kayaking. Plus a gorgeous view that made early mornings and late nights even better. We had a semi-plan each day but also allowed for vacation mode where we lounged in pjs, roasted s'mores, and laughed a lot. 

We walked around Kennebunkport admiring the marinas, boats, and simple life while we indulged in yummy local treats. We also drove past Walker's Point which is the Bush Estate. Best view ever.

We played on the beach and in the pond. The dads took the girls for paddle boating rides around the pond. Ryan & Tommy kayaked around too.

We spent a day at Fun Town, Splash Town where the girls were old enough to ride rides by themselves in Kidtown...they were in heaven! They also splashed around in the splash park and *unwillingly* went down water slides!

We spent an afternoon/evening in Portland at the children's museum letting the kids exercise their legs.

We had wonderful dinners out with water views in Kennebunk and Portland. We grilled out, feasting on delicious steaks & veggies.

We even hit up the outlets in Freeport which served to be a shopping dream for Ryan.

We made so many wonderful memories while vacationing in Maine. We feel blessed to have such great friends in the Kennedys and we really enjoyed our time with them and as a family!
