The Good List 8-22-12

Today's Good List is brought to you by our vacation in Maine last week, which could have been more perfect only if it had been longer. That place is exquisite. A delight and joy for the heart and a feast for all 5 senses.

10. Just one rainy day the whole time we were there, and it was perfect timing for snuggling, reading, playing games and doing puzzles all day long. A cozy, restful day. 

9. Gorgeous, vibrant, healthy flowers everywhere!

8. Buying our dinner right off of this dock on Wednesday night. It doesn't get any fresher than that!

7. Lighthouses.

6. Boats. Every kind you can imagine.

And my favorite part is when they're all tucked in for the evening. :-D

5. The colors of the Maine coast.

4. The amazingly fun boat ride our friends Ted and Meryl Freeman treated us to on Tuesday. It was an absolutely gorgeous day, and we got to see seals, dolphins (which I wasn't quite quick enough to photograph), and all kinds of feathered friends. So FUN!

3. Watching the girls enjoy their vacations in completely different ways.

Sweet, pensive, dreamy Macy:

Wild, carefree, exuberant Grace:

But knowing when it was all said and done, they both enjoyed every minute:

2. Acadia National Park. This was our first visit, and we quickly realized we should have allowed much more time here. Absolutely breathtaking. Already planning our next trip. ;-)

1. Quality family time for 6 days in a row. We've only done that one other time (in 2010), but we sure hope to do it every year from now on!
