While at the SEA Holiday Art Sale in Portland last weekend, MP had the pleasure of shopping Yarn & Cloth Clothiers. Owner Melissa Sailer, a mother of two boys and talented textile designer, creates beautiful children’s clothing using vintage inspired fabrics, fun patterns, and vibrant colors.

MP was thrilled to discover Yarn & Cloth clothing and accessories. Melissa’s super cute buffalo plaid skirt is perfect for the holidays.

CP #1 and Santa on the Candy Cane Train in Bath

Last year, Grandma Cute Potato treated us all to the Candy Cane Train in Bath. And for just $16 per person, it was money well spent. The train was beautifully decorated for Christmas, and we couldn’t say more about the wonderful staff.  Santa and his elves were on board to visit with all of the children. Hot cocoa and cookies were distributed to all passengers. And the kids were treated to holiday stories and songs. When a whole train of strangers erupts into a chorus of Jingle Bells, you can bet everyone is having a great time.

The Candy Cane train runs this weekend only, so grab tickets while you still can. It’s a family activity you can feel great about, as the proceeds go to Tri-County Literacy in Bath, a volunteer-based group that offers writing and reading programs in Lincoln, Sagadahoc and Cumberland counties.

maesOn yet another rainy day, the Cute Potato gang descended on Mae’s Café in Bath—hungry, cranky and wet. The staff set us up in our very own room (smart!), the waitress promptly took our order and CP #1 and #2 ran around the table while we waited for our food. What could have been a potential disaster became a pleasant lunch. What more could a parent ask for?

At Mae’s, there are many healthy options for the little ones, although ours are on a grilled cheese and french fries kick. But the best part, for adults and kids alike, are Mae’s phenomenal baked goods. Our personal favorite is the blueberry cake, which to quote a New Jersey relative, is TDF (to die for). And the oatmeal, cranberry and white chocolate chip cookies, which the kids devoured during the drive home, are really yummy, too.
