BC: The End. Until our next adventure!
FC: Maine 2012
1: For our family vacation in 2012, we decided to join the Riexinger’s at Point Sebago Resort in Maine. We booked the week of July 13th. The Leibert family joined us as well. We each had our own little house right near the beach. We filled our days with swimming, fishing, and tubing. The kids played in several of the organized games at the resort like flag football, wiffle ball, dodge ball, capture the flag, and ghost in the graveyard. The kids went to a carnival set up at the resort and played laser tag too. Sometimes the kids were just kids catching frogs in ponds and horsing around in the water. The kids weren’t the only ones having fun. The adults played washer toss and wiffle shoe, golfed, played card games, and ran in the morning runs. We shared great meals, had bonfires and roasted marshmallows, and even played in a family softball game at the resort. The area was beautiful, and we loved the time spent on the beach and especially at the Sandbar which we got to by the Riexinger’s boat. We couldn't end our vacation without a little exploring, so we spent the last day in Portland. We did some shopping in Old Port, enjoyed a nice lunch, and took in the beauty of Casco Bay and the lighthouses along the way. Perhaps our favorite day of the trip.

14: Point Sebago 2 Mile Race
15: Friday morning, we started the day with the 2 Mile Race. We thought the race started at 8:00 and arrived waiting for people to run. I told Nick he should run because he could win his age group if nobody showed up. Well, the race really started at 9:00, and a handful of people showed up. I told Nick he didn't have to do it, but he wanted to do it anyways. He ended up surprising everyone running 16:30. I barely even got a picture of him finishing because I wasn't expecting him to finish so quick. What a great job! | Mark was 3rd overall and 2nd in the 18 and over age group.

28: Although we couldn't get in the stadium, we took in the sites including Patriot Place. Nick got to go into the Patriots' team store, and we managed to get away without it costing us an arm and a leg.
