John’s parents celebrated their fiftieth wedding anniversary last week. WOWZA! The whole family got together to surprise them, renting a beautiful house in York, Maine close to the beach and surrounded by fall awesomeness.
The downtown is right on the beach. It was adorable and we had fun exploring. You might notice Des is a little tired in these pictures. He wasn’t. He proved it by refusing to close those sleepy eyes. The kid didn’t want to miss a single scene and who could blame him with surroundings like this?
How pretty is the house? We spent most of our time here eating and playing games, as the kids enjoyed the type of mayhem that comes along with a lot of quality cousin time. All twenty-three of us thought it was pretty great and Des loved investigating every corner of the place.
Our house was right across the street from York High School, so that came in handy when the kids needed even more room to run than the humungo house could offer. Kids played soccer. Adults harassed them to take family photos.
