We had a squirrel come in the house when someone left a door open. Thank goodness Chris was home to take care of it.
Another black fly bite. Those bugs are the worst.
We explored Seawall.
Lakes and beaches can be a lot of work for 1 parent so a lot of times I filled up buckets and called it good.
MDI BioLab had a family night that was pretty cool.
First real haircut.
I can’t remember what trail this was. But there wasn’t any rocks to climb over so the kids got bored quickly.
Four kids means so much crap for beach days. You can’t see the cooler (hidden under the heirloom quilt and I use as a beach blanket:) and beach bag.
Bar Harbor got really busy in July. Too busy. There were some huge yachts.
Headed to PA.
We got to go to Moe’s!!
KJ and OJ! And mom’s ever growing picture wall.
Scott took my kids to the pool.
Amusement park with the family. Chris still talks about the wave pool.
I thought this was funny enough to take a picture of it.
Farmer’s Inn/Clear Creek
Fun times with Grandma.
Thanks, mom and dad. My kids are still talking about our trip.
Acadia Mountain for the first time as a family. It’s a difficult hike but manageable with children. BUT do not attempt to do it as a loop with children. Go back down the same way you went up. We made that mistake, it was very hard especially with a baby on your back.
Owen is the sweetest, most spoiled baby boy.
More bike rides. We always stop to give the kids a break in the creek.
Lily folding (rolling) her towels.
This might be one of our favorite spots in Acadia. I don’t know what its called but when the tide is coming in the waves over the rocks make the best sound. Very therapeutic.
We had a baptism in the ocean and then the kids played afterward.
Squeezing some more fun out of summer.
Back to school.
Enjoying two children at home.
