Family Reunion in Maine (part 1)

We headed back up to Maine this past weekend for a big family reunion on my mom's side. Josh, Tyler and me hosted my mom's family for the weekend in Maine and had an absolute blast! All of the cousins stayed at our house while all of the "adults" stayed at a hotel in Portland. (For anyone planning on visiting Portland this summer, here's an itinerary I put together.)

Friday - Everyone woke up at various times so we finally congregated and headed to the Old Port for Flatbread Pizza for lunch...such good pizza! After lunch, people walked around the Old Port while I headed back to our house to get it ready for the evening festivities, as we were hosting a lobster bake for everyone. I made a bunch of appetizers and had the actual meal catered, which made cleaning up much easier! It was so much fun to organize, especially the beachy centerpieces. Photo recap.....
