Autumn in Maine
I can't even express what a cozy heaven we are in right now. Today feels like Christmas for us Boltons. Last night, after we flew to Maine, we ate a fantastic dinner with long table of family and friends in Cappy's in Camden. After a stone-solid night of sleep (including the babies), we filled our bellies again with blueberry pancakes, eggs, and bacon at Boynton McKay. We then went to Walmart's opening day in Rockland (I'm not a Walmart fan, but there's no Target or Costco here, and we needed diapers). We ended up with much more than diapers, though: a doctor kit, a car-transporting truck with all its accompanying cars, a police truck, three puzzles, and a school bus, plus tons of food. After driving home, we found we had visit requests from several Memphis and non-Memphis friends who hadn't met the kids yet, and we more than gladly obliged. It felt like Christmas! New toys and a ton of friends dropping by to eat and chat by the fire during a chilly, drizzly day. We absolutely loved it!!! Days and nights of being surrounded by family and friends, something we don't often experience with Memphis' sprawl and everyone's busy work schedules. We hope to continue doing more of the same during our next four days here. If only it could last longer...
