Refreshed!!

We are back from our little weekend getaway. We had an AWESOME time. It has been so long since we've done anything like that..just the two of us. In re-telling the events of the weekend it comes out sounding rather boring...but we both had the time of our lives.

Long story short...we spent quite a long time in Freeport at the LLBean store (the big one). Its amazing. I got great deals on sandals for all the kids and a few other little things there. We then headed to Portland looking for Guitar Center...and ended up running into this AMAZING store called "The Drum Shop". Oh my goodness. Drummer heaven. I could have spent all day there. I had fun playing on a bunch of electronic sets..because we hope to be able to get one for the church very soon. We are now much more educated and know exactly what we want. Josh had just as much fun there as I did. He talked to the guys about all the details..pricing..etc, and I got to sit down with headphones on and bang away like crazy. LOVED IT.

We then headed in the right direction (thanks to Heath and his wonderful directions and perfect landmark...the ginormous inflatable cell phone) and found Guitar Center. This is a great store..but in no way was as cool as the Drum Shop. It was good though. We had fun shopping around and playing around with different instruments and sound equipment and stuff.

While I was playing the drums at the Drum Shop we got chatting with the salesman. We mentioned we were away on our 10 year anniversary and he pointed out that playing around in a drum store would be exactly his idea of fun for something like that...but his wife would never go for it. This is an example of why I love my marriage. Both Josh and I were perfectly happy with the stuff we had been doing.

Later on that day we went to a Cinnemagic and saw the Indiana Jones movie. It was pretty good. Entertaining...fun. We both had a nice time there.

We also spent lots of time eating...we were given a gift certificate to the Bull and Claw and ate out at a bunch of other cool places. We watched the Celtics win:) We walked on the beaches of Ogunquit. All in all it was VERY relaxing. We had fun...doing nothing...and not planning anything.

We took some pictures...











..and excuse the look of the blog these days. I'm in the middle of remodeling:)

Glad you have a good time relaxing. Doing nothing away from home is the best. When I do nothing at home I always have the feeling of there is something that needs to be done. :) I love the pics. It makes me think of teenagers taking pics of themselves. Very CUTE!!!!
