    Make your own pizza!

    August 17, 2016 in the United States

    Kids got to make their own pizza tonight with tons of fresh toppings. Then it was sharing our favorite performers from America's Got Talent and playing a guessing game on Maddie's phone.

    Maddie also figured out what the Chinese characters on a window in the house meant (with a little help from a friend of Sarah's, Thank you, Sheng Chu!). It means: Love, Blessing, Luck and Wisdom.

    A fun night with family 😊😘Read more

    Boothbay Harbor, Maine

    July 30, 2017 in the United States

    Today’s big activity was whale watching in Boothbay Harbor. We got into town a little early and had the opportunity to walk around before heading to the boat. The streets were lined with touristy shops and waterside restaurants. We enjoyed lunch overlooking the ocean at McSeagull’s. Food was ok but the views more than made up for it!

    After lunch, we headed down to the boat to begin our whale-watching adventure. The ride out of the harbor was gorgeous. The coast was littered with the cutest beach bungalows. We also passed two picture perfect lighthouses.

    It didn’t take long for the captain to find the first whale. We followed this poor guy around for about an hour waiting for him to surface for air.

    By the end of the trip, we had seen two different species of whales, sea turtles, dolphins and sea lions! Well worth the investment.

    We were both in love with this town, so we decided to stay a little longer and explore the shops. I definitely could see myself living here!

    Tops'l Farm Retreat

    July 29, 2017 in the United States

    Our accommodation for the evening included a real bed! Tops’l Farm is a rustic retreat in a small Maine town that’s nestled between a river and the ocean. This is glamping at its best! Our tent had two single beds, solar lantern, bedside tables and water pitchers that were filled and ready for your arrival.

    The bathhouse was awesome! Cedar planks and upscale bath products made you feel like you were in a 5 star hotel. They even had a hairdryer!

    The phone charging stations nearby were a nice touch. They thought of everything. It would be nice to have something similar closer to DC.

    Dinner was at an iconic pit stop on Route 1, Moody’s Diner. The food was mediocre but it was fun knowing that you were eating in a place that has been serving tourists food since 1927. We did try one of their famous Whoopie Pies. I was skeptical but, it was actually really good.

    We headed back camp and spent some time relaxing around the fire before heading to bed.

    Boothbay Harbor, ME

    August 6, 2013 in the United States

    Geo: 43.8514, -69.6283

    Weather: 77 and sunny and perfect

    We couldn't ask for a more picturesque place and better weather. Our cottage is rustic and charming. The views are priceless. The town of Boothbay is beautiful, artsy, harborish and perfect. We are having a...well the only way to describe it is, a lovely time. We have spent two nights here. Today we explored the property here and moseyed on into town.

    The kids and I woke up around 7. I made my coffee and made them some hot chocolate and we sat on the deck and tried to take mental photographs of the scene before us. Peace and picturesque...until MATTHEW decides to speak loud enough for the lobster fisherman to hear him in the bay. How many times we have to tell him not to share our conversations with the world...the universe. We wandered down to the dock to take a closer look at the water and the boats. The kids met an 11 year old girl named Katie in the next cottage who lives in Brooklyn and comes here every year. She took the kids to the cove where kids can swim. Later the kids took us to see it. They were baffled because where there was sand was now water. Matthew says, "That's weird. This doesn't look the same. There was sand." I realized he meant that the tide had come in. They didn't know what a tide was. So I tried to explain while their interest drifted off to soaking their clothes while I tried not to fall in or break my ankle on the giant rocks.

    Late morning, we went into Boothbay Harbor to see about some kind of boat trip around the Harbor. We had a lobster, crabcake and shrimp lunch on the water before our boat trip. We wandered through shops and tried some chocolate bacon popcorn but Ben and I decided it just tasted like burnt chocolate popcorn. We always have high hopes for bacon anything. Bacon! The boat ride was peaceful (aside from Matthew talking through the whole thing). We went out to Mouse Island and Squirrel Island and a couple of others. We got a little history about Maine and it's harbor.

    Back at the cottage, the kids were excited to get back to the cove and get wet. So we went over with Katie. What to my wondering city eyes, there was no water. Well there was water but there was a beach. The tide had gone out leaving sand, rocks, shells, crabs, hermit crabs and other sea life. Awesome. A teacher's delight. We caught crabs and beachcombed for a while. Literally, where there was a tiny peak of rock in the water in the morning was an island now. The kids could walk across the cove. Blew my mind. We don't get to experience that in Michigan like that often. Paul brought a glass of wine down and we wandered with the kids. Perfection.

    We went back to our deck and had some cheese, salami and fruit snacks on the deck with the kids and enjoy watching the bay change with the sinking sun. We went into town to an Italian Restaurant for dinner. We felt like we were on Restaurant Impossible. No one was in there and that made us nervous. The lady asked if we wanted cracked pepper but it would work so she went to get another and Elizabeth whispered, "maybe it doesn't work because no one has eaten here in so long." This followed some of daddy's bad jokes about the restaurant. We sat by the water and watched the tide come back in. Beached boats and docks were floating again by the time we left. The food was good (nothing special). It was called Amore. Paul thought it should be called Alesse. It was fine. Too funny as we were leaving there was a statue resembling Matthew. Today on the deck, I turned around to find Matthew peeing off into the woods with a cottage above full of people on the deck. WTH! You men! He did know that wasn't ok since I told him to pee in the cove earlier, WHERE NOONE WAS AROUND! Jeez. When I saw him and heard all the people just above us, I hollered so abruptly that he nearly snapped his shorts shut midstream. Uh.

    After dinner, we took a walk through a neighborhood to make a loop across a footbridge that crosses the bay and headed back through town back to our car. Nice evening.

    Tomorrow we pack up and hit the road again through New Hampshire toward Boston. Not sure where we are staying yet. We'll let you know tomorrow. Happy trails.
