Another year, another last minute costume change. At least this year it was a week before and not a few days before. This year's progression...Batman, to a ninja, to a firefighter. There may have been a Rescue Bot or a member of Paw Patrol mixed in there somewhere. All I can say is thank goodness for Amazon Prime. I found a Melissa and Doug dress up set for a fire chief and Max was very specific with which helmet he wanted. Two days later, they were on my door step. It was cold and this was the perfect costume for a million layers. Nevertheless, it was a great night and Max once again proclaimed his love for Halloween. I hear you little buddy.
One of the best things about having a four year old is that quite often, he makes suggestions as to what our plans should entail and more often than not, we agree. This past week Max suggested the arcade, or argames, as he calls. Not only did we love his idea, we loved his name for it. Nothing like racing games, air hockey and a little skeeball with friends on a long holiday weekend.
It'a amazing how after seeing so much of the country this summer, that I can still be blown away by all that New England has to offer. Especially after living here my whole life. Our weekend in Maine was no exception. While I am not a beach person, I am a coast person, so as long as I don't have to get sand on me, any view of the ocean is always breathtaking. Being a little over a mile from it, on 3.5 acres certainly helps too. Now that my father lives up there, I know we will be making the 4 hour drive more often and I welcome all that this new part of our life has to offer.
