Maine's Last Days


Tuesday, July 7 was our last full day in Maine :(
The girls had a list of things they wanted to do before they left and we tried doing as many as we could. They wanted to swing a lot in the back for sure!


And a flashback to Rylie's 1st time in Maine on her swing Gaga made.



Even though they're the same age in the pictures, Remy looks bigger here than Rylie's 1st year photo above!



Woodpecker visitor


While Remy napped, Rylie went with Daddy and Gaga to the swimming hole in town.


When they came back, Remy walked out to greet them saying a "monster" was there dressed like this.....

Those are rubber gloves on her feet! Ha!


David cleaned up from swimming and he and I had a date night in town.



I had to laugh at this McDonald's we passed! Wonder the chances of getting those at ours? lol



DELISH dinner!



Another good meal at Damariscotta Grill!

Funny story, I was wearing like 5 inch heels so this dress wouldn't drag and we walked outside after dinner and it started raining. We had to walk across the street to our car and I told David I couldn't walk fast because I didn't want to slip and fall in the rain. As we walked across the street, a car stopped (pedestrians have right away in Maine and all cars have to stop at crosswalks) and we're in the middle of the street and David slipped! I'm sure the people sitting in their car waiting on us got a good laugh! 



So the next morning, Wednesday we headed out for Portland on our way home. 

We stopped first at Spring Point Ledge Lighthouse!




We had to walk on this huge rocks all the way out there.


 It was a workout with the girls. I was so nervous for Remy and held her tight, but she did great!



We could see Portland head in the distance!


Then we drove down to Bug Light, the cutest, littlest lighthouse!!




So little!!


And there was a WWII memorial there.



Then we drove over to Portland Head!


The girls were starving for lunch by now and the food truck they had last year was gone so we had to rush off to get lunch at the airport.


 Farewell Portland and Maine!! See you next year!


I loved this beautiful tree on the way to the airport!


When we arrived and turned in our rental car, it hit Rylie that we were leaving and she started crying. :(


The girls were so good on the 2nd flight home. Rylie bought this lobster claw pen at the airport and wrote stories the whole way back!


Remster crashed finally!


I want to also remember how great Rylie was with her souvenir money. I gave each girl $20 and said they could buy any souvenir they wanted, but they couldn't buy candy with it. She did great adding up what she had left and staying in budget. The pen was her last $3 she had. 


We got home pretty late Wednesday night and David got our car while I waited with the girls and all our luggage. When we loaded up and drove away, Remy got all panicked and said "Oh no! We forgot to bring home our new car!" lol She meant our rental we had in Maine. Apparently she didn't want to return to Mommy's car!


We had another great trip in Maine and the girls are already sad the countdown is a whole year before we can go back!
