A friend recently invited us to Camp Ketcha, a non-profit in Scarborough that fosters environmental education, for their annual Fairy House Festival. The spacious campground is an ideal place for kids to roam and play. We brought along our own Fairy House Kit from from fairy house expert and writer Liza Gardner Walsh. The wooden kit contains everything a kid needs to build a house: feathers, sea glass, soft moss, and of course, glittery fairy dust! The wonderful staff at Camp Ketcha also had supplies on hand like Forsythia branches and pinecones. The CP kids were in fairy house heaven!

Here’s a sampling of what CP#1 has requested for her lunch: goat cheese wrapped in salami; mozzarella, tomato and basil on skewers; and rice and beans with lime. MP is all for healthy, creative lunches, but when CP#1 asked for fresh spring rolls, she wondered, how will I pull this off?
She enlisted the help of her friend, Watcharee Limanon, a mother of twin boys and experienced Thai chef. A Bangkok native, Watcharee has explored Thai street food and the finest Thai restaurants. She’s also studied at a number of professional cooking schools, including Le Cordon Bleu in Bangkok. (more…)

One of the things we love best about our new home is its close proximity to some incredible farms and orchards. The team recently stopped by Sunflower Farm & Creamery in Cumberland to visit with their newest baby goats. Owners Hope and Chris Hall regularly open the farm to visitors, so children and adults can enjoy spending time with the babies. And boy, did we ever.
Clearly, the Cute Potato kids were smitten. They asked MP and DP multiple times if we could bring one home. MP suggested we visit the farm more often!
