MP always forgets how busy May and June can be. It feels as though our family has been living on recreational fields. We’re regularly driving back and forth to practices, to lacrosse and baseball games, and trying to stay on top of work and home life. Summer break and all of its pleasures— from lazy afternoons on the beach to barbecues with friends— couldn’t come soon enough. And of course, MP can’t wait to share her new book, “The Maine Play Book,” and its fun outdoor adventures with families around the state. If you’re curious, here’s a peek inside its pages:

When our travel plans changed in Canada, we decided to return to Maine and explore Moosehead Lake. DP and MP had never been to the area before. Little did we know how much we were about to discover!

During our first night in Moosehead, we decided to take a camping hiatus and found ourselves an affordable place to stay in Greenville Junction. After a day of driving all of us needed a hot shower and a good night’s rest. This simple, lakefront motel fit the bill.

We were treated this lake view come morning.

Bresca was MP’s favorite restaurant in Portland—the creative menu, the wine selection, Krista Desjarlais’ incredible desserts, and the cozy bistro atmosphere made it MP and DP’s go to place for an adult night out.

When Desjarlais decided to close Bresca in May 2013, MP’s disappointment was buoyed when she learned the chef had decided to renovate a snack shack at Outlet Beach on Sabbathday Lake in New Gloucester. While there would be no more quiet wine dinners at the Portland location, now our whole family could enjoy Desjarlais’ delicious food, and a day at the lake.
