Kennebunkport Vacation Home Tour

It seems strange to still be writing about the summer when fall seems to be looming in the air.  But I wanted to share one last post about our summer trip to Kennebunkport.  We stayed in a fabulous little cottage with a channel bay view on one side and an ocean view on the other.  It's on Gooch's beach in it's own little neighborhood of houses.  This was our fifth year going to Kennebunkport with the kids so it's become our family summer tradition.  It's one summer trip we look forward to because we know we can relax and expect the same familiarity in the shops and restaurants year after year.

In the mornings and evenings, the kids love to take walks on the beach when dogs are allowed to play...and every so often, we catch a glimpse of Barbara Bush walking with her dogs too!

Ahhh, now we'll have to relive the vacation for another year through the pictures.  Today, we have Vivi's Kindergarten orientation for school.  School starts for us on Monday!

Heather, I really enjoyed your vacation! The place looks idyllic and what an amazing spot. The shops and everything you all did was just my idea of fun. What a great tradition for your gorgeous family! Good luck with the start of school... Something that was such a huge part of my life as a mom and I do miss that stuff!
