Welcome 2016 & Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY

We’ve got to fit some super fun things into our trip home for the holidays; as if seeing all our family, friends and getting presents isn’t enough.  We took our daughter to the Strong Museum of Play in Rochester, NY and she had a blast!  An actual Sesame Street, an airplane you can fly, a kid-sized grocery store where you can run the checkout line too, and on and on and – we didn’t even get through all of it!  I’m wondering if this might become a yearly tradition so that someday we can say we’ve seen the whole museum.  It was that good!

Merry Christmas in Lewiston, NY & First Haircut

So it’s Christmas morning… and my daughter needs a haircut!  Thank goodness we have a hair stylist in the family.  Her Mama Honey!  Did I mention this is not just any haircut?  It’s her first haircut.  Ever.  In three and a half years.  Christmas morning first haircut… happens all the time right??

Making of a Christmas Card in Ocean Park, ME

This is the first year that I have attempted to capture our own Christmas card pictures on my own.  I’d originally thought I would bring a tripod and my remote triggers and set it up, arrange us nicely and grab a wonderful family photo, but Mommy’s bad hair day, Daddy sleeping in until noon and a frigidly cold day with a short-sleeved sweater dress all put a damper on the family photo.  Sigh.  Maybe in warmer weather, on the beach, before we leave our lovely nook of the world in May.   Anywho, these are the types of faces I get these days when I try my hand at portraiture.

In her defense of the odd faces, it was actually really cold.  Really. Cold.

Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine

Every weekend since moving to Maine we have attempted to head out and find something locally interesting to check out.  This is one of our favorites so far!  Fort Williams Park and the Portland Head Light in Cape Elizabeth, Maine is a must-see when in the area!  Great ocean views, lovely lighthouse, awesome park with beach, picnic areas and playground; what more could anyone want??  We loved it.

Pumpkin Patch 2015 in Dayton, Maine

It’s time for Pumpkin Patch photos again this year!  It’s amazing how heading out to the pumpkin patch has now become a destination for families for an afternoon in the last bunch of years!  Our local pumpkin farm was almost picked clean of pumpkins but had plenty of other fall fun activities for us to try out.  Babe’s favorite is the jumping pumpkin pillow and of course the playground.  Happy Fall!
