A perfect day in Maine

I think yesterday (Thursday) was my favorite day of our trip!  It was so much fun to hang out with Betsy’s cousin Diane who lives on  a lake in Waterville Maine.  We were invited up when we talked at the family reunion last weekend.  So we took up her wonderful offer and had a perfect day!!

The kids were so excited to play on the jet skis, the tube, the kayaks, and anything else she was willing to offer up!

After lots of fun at the lake we were talked in to staying for supper – and that was great too!!  Yummy Chicken Enchilada soup as an appetizer, then we had an amazing grilled pork loin (melt in your mouth) with some tasty roasted potatoes!  We choked down some ice cream after that!  Really, it was just a great ending to the perfect day in Maine!!  Getting to spend time with family we did not really know, from here, was just great!!  We enjoyed Diane’s children too – Michelle and Nick – both in college and both so great to play with the kids!

Hoping this could be a Maine tradition!!
