|Cross-country skiing at Sunday River|
On Saturday we drove a couple hours inland to Sunday River Mountain where we took cross-country skiing lessons and then went out on their beautiful trails. We all loved it and it was great to see the kids enjoying being outside in the winter and having fun learning a new sport. I love sports that don't require teams or scores, but that challenge you and that you can do the rest of your life. This is something I want to give the kids so that they can have these skills and memories when they are adults. I loved it as a kid and though I don't play basketball anymore on a team, I can cross-country ski and do snow-shoeing whenever there's snow on the ground!
On Sunday we drove North to Camden, Maine and ate some yummy chowder at Cappy's Chowder House for lunch. Then we drove around and saw the sights before going back to Freeport. We left on Monday, sorry to say good-bye to the State that we've grown to love so much. This was Craig's birthday present as we are celebrating his birthday tomorrow! So I have to get to the grocery so I can bake a cake and cook a yummy meal for him!
