Quick Trip to Kennebunkport
I’m pretty thankful that my boys are getting to the age that they don’t “need” or ask for much for their birthdays….and that they understand that “doing things is better than getting stuff.” So, as one of Thatcher’s birthday gifts we took off for a one night getaway to Kennebunkport. Our intention was to simply swim, beach comb, fish, explore, ride bikes, poke around in some stores, and then head to the Portland Sea Dogs game the next morning. The weather didn’t necessarily cooperate for some of our planned outdoor fun….although the fishing was still a must.
While there we drove by the Bush Estate. It was nice to show the boys where the family has gathered together for so many years and to look across the water and imagine the good times, laughs, rites of passage, celebrations, etc that have unfolded on the lawn and within the walls.
It was even nicer to hear that President Bush was in attendance at the Memorial Day parade the next morning.
