Sometimes the Cute Potato team has the most fun together during family walks. And when we find a hidden gem to explore that’s just a stone’s throw from home? Even better. A friend recommended taking the kids to Littlejohn Island Preserve in Yarmouth, which can be easily reached by driving over Cousins Island Bridge, followed by Littlejohn Island Bridge. The preserve is tucked away in a private community, but there are signs for visitors to follow along the dirt road.

Friends and family are having a lot of babies lately, which means MP needs to come up with a thoughtful gift or two. Thankfully, she needn’t look any further than Portland’s Lilleputt Studio. Designer Annika Schmidt makes beautiful textiles for little ones. MP loves her brightly colored bibs, infant smocks, and handmade pillows for the nursery.

MP tries to steer clear of vending machines when she’s out with the kids, unless she’s forgotten to bring an afternoon snack (which happens more than she cares to admit). Recently, we were faced with this very dilemma. MP found herself staring at a vending machine filled with unhealthy options. The kids had their faces pressed against the glass, eyeing Twizzlers and Cool Ranch Doritos. After much deliberation, we left with tiny bags of fruit snacks and roasted peanuts—the two best choices of the bunch—but neither curbed our hunger for long.
