Before we left for Maine on Friday we had an appointment to have our family Christmas card pictures taken. Now, I am sure that some of you are thinking, "Wow, Shel way to get ahead of the game!", but really, if truth be known I would in no way shape or form be thinking about Christmas or Christmas card pictures if it was not for the sheer fact that the place we have our photos done offers 40% off Christmas Cards in September. We certainly cannot pass that up, so off we go, insanely early, and have our pictures taken and cards designed. Since Dave was already off on Friday due to our trip to Maine for our dear friend, Mr. Benchly's impending nuptials, we figured then was as good a time as any. The pictures came out great and since we were incredibly hungry (and determined that the girls would nap on the way to Maine) we headed to the American Girl Bistro for lunch. With how beautifully we were all dressed up how could we not?!
And while we were not overly impressed with the food (dessert is so much better), it was a lovely way to kick off our mini-vacation!
