Every summer growing up we made the 4 day drive or long flight up to New England where my parents are from.  My grandparents lived in a big old family home right on the beach in Maine.  
Not bad digs!  My parents now have the home so we can still go.
We have brought the children now 4 times. It is a blast to see them have fun on the same beach where I grew up.   Caroline is our beach bunny so far.  I was SOOO nervous treking everyone up, we haven't been doing very well with any travel as a family lately, but they did beautifully!!  Drew seemed to get over his teething-crisis just in time to be the little show stopper for the week and actually slept!!  We really needed this as a family and it was a great time of bonding for all of us.

Drew LOVED the beach!

Climbing the rocks on the Breakwater was a HUGE hit!  
The kids thought they were climbing Everest.

My parents and grandmother.  We had such a fun time just with them.

Welcome to Maine, Drew-man!!
