Not-so Recent Events

These are photos from June, but I thought I'd post them anyway.

Pirate Rendezvous in Damariscotta:

An afternoon with friends at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth:Ben's buddy S likes to give him smooches. I'm sure they'll both hate me for posting this in a few years.This is the view from the playground. Nice, eh?Ben preferred playing with the gravel on the path over admiring the scenery:
Baking cupcakes for Father's Day--chocolate cake with salted caramel buttercream! Ben lined all the tins and sampled the batter, giving it his stamp of approval:

Daddy moves at the speed of light and is impossible to catch.

Acadia National Park

We took a trip to Acadia National Park in downeast Maine last week and had a lovely time. I highly recommend the Eden Village Cottages if you plan to visit with a toddler! Ben thought our cottage was fascinating. He did not love riding in the bike trailer, as he was occasionally sprayed with gravel, but he did like the toy and book stores in Bar Harbor, walking around on top of Cadillac Mountain, and Jordan Pond House's famous hot popovers. Here are a whole slew of photos (why didn't I get one of a popover!!?).

Biking, biking, and more biking (ouch!):
