On Christmas day, we loaded the rug-rats (and ALL our Christmas gear) into the car and zipped on over to Maine (a four-hour drive) to enjoy all that Freeport, our favorite Maine destination, has to offer. And what does it have to offer? The L.L.Bean flagship store, tons of good outlets, a hotel with a pool AND free cookies and lots of good times with the VT Madsens.

Here we are in front of the famous L.L.Bean giant boot.

We shopped, we ate, we swam, we shopped some more and fun was had by all (and somehow I managed to buy three shirts--all green. I guess I like green shirts). Of course, the last night there Will discovered how to climb out of his port-a-crib, so this just may be our last vacation--ever. At least it was the last night. And at least it wasn't too painful--Josh just put him back in the crib three times and then Will was off to dream-land. Of course, at 6:45 the next morning, Josh and I awoke to a thud and when Josh went to go check on Will, he had climbed right out on out of that crib again.
