Vacation State of Mind

I've returned from several days away, vacationing up in Boothbay Harbor, Maine with family. The time away was long overdue for all of us, and we're still mentally on vacation. I nearly forgot about my post today - until another PBJ reminded me that she did the same thing yesterday!
I'll share some highlights of our trip:
1. Reading: I was glued to The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo during car rides. I'm hooked, and can't wait to read the rest of the trilogy!
2.Thomas the Tank Engine: The boy has Thomas fever. We're enjoying lots of books, which actually hold his attention more than the TV show. We were lucky enough to ride Thomas up in Boothbay - I might have had more fun than him.
3.Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens: Oh my! Their children's garden was the most heavenly spot to explore. So many interactive exhibits for little ones: fairy garden, bear cave, tree house, water pump, lobster trap on a pier, walking maze, etc. It was a mix between Disneyland and a Martha Stewart magazine. Seriously amazing, and we never saw any of the 'adult' gardens.
4.Sketching: Nope. Not a line. I've hit a drought of sorts. I picked up some fun new colored pens yesterday to kick myself back into shape. I know something will do the trick soon, so I'm not too worried. As soon as I emerge from the vacation haze, I'll share sketches here too.

Sounds like a great trip was had by all. Love the photo of Miles. He is so sweet!

Regarding the "drawing drought", I find that droughts often work themselves out organically, as long as they don't go on for too long. And then, if doesn't break within a short period of time, I force the issue! :)
