Today was a big day for Nate's cousin Joanna. She got married!
Today was a big day for us because we left the boy with a first-time Theo sitter for 7 hours. Luckily, the sitter was Nate's aunt Patty who's got two grandkids that have her running just as much as Theo does to us. She's a pro. She wasn't worried in the slightest, so I wasn't worried.
So while we boated
around Casco Bay, ate lobster,
drank CLAM JUICE, enjoyed French toasts (the cheers kind, not the breakfast kind), and gobbled up mother-of-the-bride made tarts, Theo toured the island, played on the beach and--get this--made an art project. Seriously. Patty brought home all of the sea glass that Theo had collected, then he showed Patty where to glue all the pieces onto the teeny piece of driftwood he carried around all day. Theo even passed out promptly at 7pm after eating all of his dinner.
Patty, you are hired.
