Climber- 10 months

video

Lyla's our little climber. Back in August she was 10 months old and already had mad climbing skills.

York, Maine

The state motto of Maine is "The Way Life Should Be." We love going up to Maine. It is beautiful and pretty laid back. We saw the lighthouse, enjoyed a lovely lobster tail lunch, and went to a local amusement park. I have a million pictures of Lyla crawling around that are very cute, but I kept this post pretty simple.




Charles River Boat Cruise

Another day we took a boat cruise down the beautiful Charles River. It was full of all sorts of totally useless facts, but it was still fun to see Boston from a little different angle.




Mini Golf

Another night we took everybody to our favorite mini golf course and Kimball Farms ice cream.
Lyla was incredibly good at mini golf. That is, if the definition of mini golf is crawl around and pick up golf balls.
Emily was getting lessons from her daddy and her grandpa. She's pretty good, but I think we'll leave the real golfing to her cousin Westin.
p.s. I totally scored a hole in 1. (I think Justin did too...)

USS Contitution

Back in August we were SO lucky to have my parents come and visit. My dad lucked out by having a work conference here, so they were here for a week for that and then a few more days. Awesome.

This year we went down to see the USS Constitution ship. It is the oldest commissioned naval ship. It's from way back when, and still sales on the 4th of July so it's considered still used. Anyways, it was another lovely historical site. Here are some fun pics exploring around.
Grandma and Lyla playing around in line. It was a long wait. Someone in this picture may have snuck onto the boat as well. You have to pass through airport like security to get on someone didn't bring their id. We were ultra stealth and still managed to get on board.
Me with the largest mixer I've ever seen. This was actually on the Destroyer- a submarine also docked there.
Our gorgeous captain steering us to someplace very cool.

The Destroyer submarine. It was reminding my dad of all sorts of cool submarine times.
