Archive for September, 2013

While shopping the Craft & Art Show at the Yarmouth Clam Festival this summer, the team discovered The Merry Crown Society. Shop owner, Bonnie, who hails from Fryeburg, designs whimsical crowns, wands, swords, and masks using felt made from recycled plastic bottles. CP#2 was completely smitten with Bonnie’s booth. If MP allowed it, he would spent hours trying out cool disguises.

This beautiful stretch of September weather is impossible to ignore. We left our boxes behind last Sunday, and decided to enjoy a family picnic at Fort Williams Park in Cape Elizabeth. MP also wanted to check out the Bite Into Maine food truck, which has received national attention for their lobster rolls, and the progress of The Fort Williams Arboretum.

We brought hamburgers, hot dogs, salads, and fruit skewers along, but MP and DP decided to split a Bite Into Maine lobster roll as an appetizer (we chose a version with wasabi mayonnaise). The lobster roll offered generous pieces of lobster and a hint of spice. The accolades are well-deserved— this roll is the perfect late summer treat.

The Cute Potato family is feeling topsy turvy lately. We’re unpacking boxes every day (nearly 170 to get through, if you can believe). Plus, we’ve been busy with school meetings, soccer practice, dancing lessons, appointments, and adjusting to a new routine. All the team really wants to do is start making this house our own. The kids can’t wait to unpack their library of books, and MP is looking forward to hanging family photos and art on the walls.

With thoughts of books and decorating in mind, we’re giving away a little something for adults and kids. Thanks to our sponsor, Daytrip Jr., we have a gorgeous, chain-stitched pillow (valued at $120) called “Cat in the Garden,” and a copy of the children’s classic, The Cat at Night by author and illustrator Dahlov Ipcar.

Summer is fleeting. MP wishes the family could have more time to enjoy the season before school, schedules, and big projects, like moving into a new house, became the focus of our days. But a girl can pretend, right? With that idea in mind, we visited Dot’s Ice Cream Shop in Bath.
