I know it’s like two weeks late, but I finally sat down tonight to edit/upload some photos from our week in Maine for July 4th. I wish I could blame this delayed post on my two kids and how super busy I am but honestly I’ve just been lazy. (Also my current Netflix binge of Parks and Rec has been taking up the majority of my time after I put the kids to bed).
We were in Ogunquit which is a really nice little town. Ogunquit used to belong to the gays but us heterosexual assholes had to swoop in and take over because it has such a beautiful beach and also it’s bougie AF. It’s always the gays who discover the good shit and we really ought to spend more time thanking them. Sometimes I feel bad about this land acquisition but my dad owns a house up there, so I’m really not going to stop going. (Also if you’ve been there and have hit up Maine Street can you tell me how it is because I need to go).
July 4th in Ogunquit was LIT. There was a huge dance party thing going on at the beach before the fireworks started. Greg started dancing while I was in line for ice cream and of course Maddy joined. So many people were taking videos of them rocking out and one woman even came over to show us her footage. It was awesome. I’ve been waiting for the videos to go viral and pop up on my Facebook feed but I guess I’m gonna have to become famous the hard way.
I promised Maddy we would bake a cake for the 4th, one of those Pinteresty/Ina Garten flag cakes. I was not about to whip this thing up from scratch so I bought a box of cake mix, a can of frosting, some non-organic berries and called it a day. I allowed Maddy to frost and decorate the cake (though it was really hard for me to not control the sitch) and we brought it to the beach to eat while watching the fireworks. It was one of my better parenting moments of the trip.
Anyway, here are a bunch of pictures from our time up there!
