I love Maine. It think it’s one of the most beautiful states in America. I hope our summers in New England grow a love of the area in Quinnie and Kiera’s hearts as well.
We spent a day in York, Maine and visited the Nubble Lighthouse..
we explored the rocks around the coastline..
if there is a bird around, the odds are that my girls will be chasing it..
Here’s an interesting article about the Nubble lighthouse keepers and their families throughout the years. The kids who grew up there all mention how idyllic their childhoods were.
We visited my friend Bethany and her family in Scarborough, Maine (just like last summer)…
Bethany’s mom Karen with two of her grandkids
Bethany and I (and our siblings) grew up together and have known each other since we were 3 and 5 years old (our Moms went to nursing school together and are best friends). So it’s SO nice to see the friendship that Quinnie and Stella have. They’ve been pen pals over the past year, and are going to be in the same cabin at Camp Calumet for a week this summer (the same camp that Bethany and I went to every summer!). I’m so psyched for them- they’re going to have a blast!
we always end a visit with ice cream, of course!
My Mom and I usually try and spend a day in Cornish, Maine every summer also.
They have some cute stores and antique shops
I got some great used books at the second hand shop in this church
and we like to eat at Krista’s
This blueberry soda was good. I also had to document how much ice you get at restaurants in America. In Germany, you have to ask for ice, and when you do, you usually only get a few cubes. God Bless America!
