A Beautiful Trip to Maine With the In-Laws!

I seem to constantly be a week behind on this blog, but life gets in the way sometimes and I've happily been M.I.A. spending time with my husband and in-laws, Brad and Susan! 

It's been an awesome (BUSY) visit and Ryan and I are sad that Brad and Susan are leaving tomorrow, but man, we did A LOT! Our time together started last weekend when we trekked it up to Bangor, Maine to visit with Lauren, Eliot, & the Potvin's! 

Since I had to work Friday, we couldn't get on the road before 4:30 or so, putting us into Boston in prime traffic time and arriving at our destination late at night. We spent a little time hanging out before we all crashed for the night. Saturday, we drove around Maine, stopping in Belfast, Camden, and Lincolnville. 

Camden was an ADORABLE town so we decided to drive up one of the nearby mountains and have a picnic overlooking the town. 

After lunch, we drove to Lincolnville and went to the Cellardoor winery for a wine tasting. The wine was really good and we walked away with a bottle of their dessert wine, Treasure. The best part of the winery though was the GORGEOUS view off the back deck! I'm pretty sure we spent more time out there taking pictures than actually sampling their wine selection.

Saturday night, we finally got to spend some time with Eliot and Lauren (They weren't around during the day since they were driving home from the trail for the weekend!) The Potvin's made a feast for a dinner and we spent the rest of the night playing foozball and watching the Red Sox.

After breakfast Sunday morning, the men decided to go play a couple tennis matches together, so the girls went for a run and did some shopping in downtown Hampden! Once the men were done, we went back to the house to shower before heading out to do some apple picking!

Can I please tell you that the apples we picked at this little farm in Maine were THE BEST apples I've ever had. It also didn't hurt that 20 lbs. of apples only cost $10! Maine apples for the win! Once we stocked up on apples, we decided to stop for a drink at the Sea Dog brewery in downtown Bangor.

To finish off our trip, the group partook in a lobster boil (which was delicious), watched some Boston sports dominate, and really just enjoyed the company. Thank you Potvin family for hosting the Smith's all weekend and thank you Eliot and Lauren from taking a break in your hike to hang out with you buddies! We had a blast and can't wait for the next trip!
