On one of our first days of summer vacation, the team visited Pineland Farms in New Gloucester to make ice cream. Paula Letiecq, who teaches the class, is a friend, so we were thrilled to visit for the morning. She tells us we’ll be making three kinds of ice cream: strawberry, vanilla, and M&M cookie.

It’s raining… again. And tomorrow’s forecast calls for more. What’s a parent to do? MP went through some of Cute Potato’s favorite rainy day activities to help:

Father’s Day is on Sunday, and MP needs to find a thoughtful gift for DP. Truth be told, he ordered himself a heart monitor for exercising, but that’s not quite what she had in mind. Here are some of the ideas she’s mulling over for Dad Potato’s big day:
1. A Visit to Lion’s Pride
DP went to Ebenezer’s Pub in Lovell recently and still raves about the visit. The pub, which boasts 35 Belgian beers on tap, was named the #1 beer bar in America by Beer Advocate Magazine. Impressive, right? Jen and Chris Lively, who own Ebenezer’s, also own Ebenezer’s Brew Pub in Brunswick. The Brunswick location has a tremendous selection of beers and a menu that includes house made Belgian frites. We can’t wait to visit.

MP had the pleasure of visiting Cammie and Kip Weeks, co-owners of eco-kids, a Portland-based company that offers non-toxic and natural art supplies for children. Our team has long been fans of their eco-dough, paints, and crayons, but little did we know how much effort and time goes into making the products.
