Listen
We’re hoping the weather will be kind to us tonight, so we can check out Cassidy Holden and the Orleans Kids at Congress Square Park in Portland. The event is part of the Portland Swing Project, which showcases music and dance from the 1920s-40s through live music, dances and performances. CP#1 and #2 love all kinds of music, and we can’t wait for them to experience live jazz.

Now that the long winter season is upon us, MP has been brainstorming ways to the keep the family outdoors and active. Here are some of the adventures she’s hoping to take:

Ice Fishing
Full disclosure: Grumpy Old Men with Walter Mathau, Jack Lemmon and Ann Margaret is one of MPs favorite winter films. In the movie, the men are particularly competitive when it comes to ice fishing. MP has always dreamed of visiting an ice fishing hut and catching a fish or two. She’s hoping the team will be up for experiencing a guided trip of our own.

MP will admit, there are so many gift guides online, it’s enough to overwhelm even the most enthusiastic holiday shopper. However, it’s hard not to give the talented artisans we have in Maine a shout out. There is something about giving a handmade gift from home that makes the holidays extra special. Here are a few favorites:

This nightlight from The Orange Chair Studio in Rockland would be a cute addition to a girl’s room — no matter her age.

If your family happens to be in Kennebunkport, and you find yourselves exploring Dock Square, we recommend going directly to Daytrip Jr. The inviting shop is a Cute Potato favorite. When MP visits, she can’t help but think of A Christmas Story, when Ralphie and friends have their noses pressed against the glass at Higbee’s Department Store window, gaping in awe at its marvelous contents.

Yes, this is a blog about all things kid-friendly, but every once and awhile, MP posts about something with fabulous Maine moms in mind. That’s why today’s giveaway features a stunning necklace and earrings from Minka. MP discovered this stylish Kennebunkport boutique and gallery while scouting for 48 Hours.

ImageMinka is filled with gorgeous, handmade jewelry and leather bags designed by Michelle Larochelle. Her partner, artist Christopher Larochelle, creates the ethereal paintings displayed in the shop. You’ll also find Maine made gifts for yourself or someone you love, like body care, stationery, and T-shirts for adults and children. (more…)

Every so often, MP tells the kids she wishes she were an octopus. Just think of all the things a parent could accomplish with 8 arms! You can imagine MP’s delight when she came across this Octopus Wrangling tee. Designer Christopher Larochelle of Minka in Kennebunkport says he likes childlike images with a little weight to them. With that idea in mind, he created this playful t-shirt for kids and adults.

Minka’s T-shirts are American-made, 100% cotton, and they’re printed locally using environmentally friendly ink. What’s not to love?
