Mad-Time in Maine with the Madsens!

Originally, on Josh's b-day weekend, the East Coast Madsens (Nate & Amy, Jane, Josh & I) thought we'd get together in Maine for a quick celebration. Well, once Adele caught wind of it, she just had to come (she hearts Maine). Then, when Kasey found out, there was no way she would be left out and then lo and behold, before you know it, the entire Madsen clan (minus Kasey's husband Steve) were on board for an impromptu trip to one of our favorite places. We stayed just south of Kennebunk Port and though it was a short, unplanned trip, it was filled with mad fun times, Madsen-style. Some of the highlights: shopping at the best outlets ever (plus, the huge L.L. Bean store) in Freeport; devouring plenty of helpings of Ben & Jerry's ice cream; staying up late to play "Murder" (I have to give props to Adele for her fine acting ability--ha!); giving ourselves (manly men included) micro-derm abrasion facials; playing woofle ball at the beach and just enjoying one another's crazy company. Luckily, Kasey took lots of pictures and I stole them off her blog to share with you. Thanks Bard and Adele for our Maine adventure; can't wait for more mad-times with the Madsen clan!

The ocean!!!! (Not the ocean, ocean, but little tributaries that would ebb & flow with the rising tide).
Jane, Annie & Josh applying their micro-derm abrasion. Nice face, Josh!
Josh and Ryan, Annie's hubby. Their skin looks better already!
Yeah for Madsen facials! And, boy, were they much-needed. My skin felt better for days.

Such a fun family! Isn't it nice to have wonderful in-laws?! (Ummm...what is Ryan's last name and where is he from? He looks just like a Ryan I know.) Happy, Happy, Birthday, Joshy Dear! We never made it to Maine when we lived in New York...guess we'll have to take a trip! Pretty random comment here.
