We spent a week in Maine again over the 4th with David's mom and Craig. I'm only going to split it into 2 posts this time. I didnt take near as many photos as I normally do because a lot of it would've been repeats. We did some fun, new things this trip though that I did document with hundreds of pictures hehe It was hotter than usual and I was battling a sinus infection the entire week and it was definitely more difficult traveling with Remy at this age, but overall we had a great time up north! I know the girls did too and Rylie's already asking to go back.
We arrived Wednesday evening
Rylie went straight to color at the desk in her room before dinner.
Thursday, 4th of July! Our patriotic family...
and patriotic girls.
We went to see the fireworks in Damariscotta and a little storm blew over us. We took shelter in the car until it passed, then this beautiful rainbow came out.
View from our seats into Damariscotta....fog rolling in
Fireworks show was great!
Someone wasnt too into it though!
And seconds later, conked out (literally seconds after screaming, just fell asleep!)
Smiley face (upside down)
It was great, we loved it!
Friday swinging in the morning
Then we walked to the library
They were doing a puppet show that morning
It was.....interesting. Ok, I'll just say it, it was awful! lol We have it on video if you dont believe me. But whatever, the kids liked it.
Then we headed to Boothbay Harbor!
First stop was the Maine State Aquarium
Loved this two-colored lobster!
Look at this monster lobster! My hand's there for comparison.
LOVED this area you could touch/hold sea creatures! Rylie's holding a sea cucumber here.
And a starfish
And saying hi to a lobster.
My blue lobster buddy!!!
I was SO excited to see a blue lobster and get to hold it! Love them! They're so rare and neat!

Then we took the girls to the Botanical Gardens nearby
It was Fairy Friday! They got to dressup...
....make a fairy wand...
....and see fairy houses all over!
We walked around the beautiful area
The girls could run all over
Rylie made her own fairy house back to Mimi's that afternoon
Her fairy house her and Gaga put together.
Dinner at the Lobster Pound that night
Kinda weird holding live lobsters that morning then eating one that night lol but dinner was great!
