Maine Location: The party will be held in Gorham, Maine. Julie and Floyd Brown have graciously offered their home and yard for the party. They live at 165 Mosher Road, in Gorham, Maine 04038. Feel free to map it online. To get there, you can take Route 25 out of Portland, through Westbrook, and into Gorham, where you connect with Route 237 (across from Beal's Ice Cream). The Browns live off Route 237, and their house is set back from the road. Their mailbox says 8 and there is a blue sign that says Rivers Edge Drive (their private road). You can park on the main road or down the street at the neighborhood school, and carpool to the house.
Colorado Location: The party will be held in Fort Collins, Colorado. Susan Pfeuffer and Tara Bunch (the parents who used to employ Nicole as a nanny) have graciously offered their home and yard for the party. They live at 1160 Laporte Avenue, in Fort Collins, Colorado 80521. Feel free to map it online. To get there from I-25, you would take the Mulberry Avenue exit and follow Mulberry west through town until you reached Shields Avenue. Turn north (right) on Shields and follow it to Laporte Avenue. Turn West (left) on Laporte Avenue and their house is the 8th or 9th on the right. It has a stone and wrought iron fence and the house has a sign with the name Glenrock on it. Please park on the main street on a side road.
