Horse Pulls & Cheetah Fedoras

October 18, 2012

Sometimes living in LA can be a little…much. Which is why it’s always a good idea to get away for a bit, clear the old head…you know, take a breather before you start to go CRAZAYYY. Anyway, two weekends ago I boarded a jet plane and flew home to New England.  On a read eye. OVERNIGHT flight. Needless to say I was lookin pretty sexAY when I landed at 6AM. NAWWWWWTTTT.  My older sister Kelly and her BF John picked me up at the airport along with their super cute super energetic pup Sisi.

She’s…a special pup 😉

They picked me up from Boston and off we went up to Maine.  We spent the weekend at our camp/lake house/cabin whatever you wanna call it. It’s been our getaway house for YEARS and it’s my second favorite place on earth. Anyway, we met Mama Raff there and she was super excited and ready for the weekend shenanigans.  The matriarch of the family can get into crazy moods and this weekend was no exception. Papa Raff came up a few hours later. He was stuck wrapping up some last minute football things. He’s the head coach at our high school and had a game the night before (they won!) so he had to do a film exchange with another coach and then he was ours for the weekend! After he arrived the five of us piled into the car and headed to Attitash Ski Mountain Resort.  It was the weekend of their 15th Annual Oktoberfest and it was just like the real thing. Wellll maybe not, but it was still a lot of fun. They had four or five tents which came in hand later when it started to drizzle out.  Local breweries came out and brought their best fall-ish brews with them. It was delish and fun.

I slept all the way home (getting 1 hour of sleep and having a few brews will do that to you).  When we got back to the house my aunt Diane had arrived.  She came up for the weekend from Kittery and was staying with us!

Don’t they look like twins!?

That night we had a FULL ON seafood feast-lobser, steamers, clam chowdah…the WORKS. It was sooooo good I can’t even describe.

Day 2 of Family Fun Time was spent at the Fryeburg Fair.  My family and I have been going to this fair for years and it never fails to entertain.  Tractor and horse pulls, pig scrambles, llama shaving demonstrations, and lots and LOTS of fried food, the fair is always entertaining.

Needless to say the weekend was super fun and went by in a blur. Before I knew it it was Monday night and I was on my way back to Logan Airport, shuffling through the security line and boarding another red eye flight back to LAX.   Sadly it had to come to an end…but that’s alright. Countdown to Christmas begins! Love forced family fun time!

One last pup picture to make you smile 🙂
