Our Mini-Vacation in Bar Harbor
We just arrived back from a long weekend in Bar Harbor with Chad's family. Chad's family now consists of Fourteen people and sadly Zebbie and Zoey are still in Alaska but we had fun in their honor. I don't think I've ever been to Bar Harbor before but it was so beautiful (even though it rained on us.) Chad and I realized that this was our first time "camping" as a family. Next time we hope to camp for real by either canoeing or hiking out to some place super remote and setting up our own camp and fire pits and everything but this was a great way to spend time with everyone and ease Betty into the great outdoors. I don't think she's ever slept so well and she kept asking me what every little sound was. It was really a great time and the rest of the family is still out there enjoying it :( wish we could have stayed.
At The Camp

|Tending the fire in a vintage polka dot dress.|
|Oma and her baby|
|Prepared for the rain in style|
|Peek a boo with Auntie Caity And uncle Troy's Dog.|
At The Beach
|On our way to the sea shore|
|Auntie Natasha taught her how to pull snails off of the rocks|
|Her dress was soaked when we left|
At a Family Friend's For Dinner
|They had a pet squirrel and a bunny!|
|Note the rounded window! like a hobbit house!|
Out on the Town
|people actually stopped and took pictures of this as they drove by. Uncle Bacon is teaching Betty to fly and Auntie Ky is... sorry Auntie Ky.|
|I sort of gave up on trying to look presentable by the last day.|
|Everybody taking pictures.|
At Fort Knox (Just the Three of us)
|we stopped at the fort on our way home|
We loved Bar Harbor and I'm already excited to go back again later this summer. We found an old lobster trap and bought it - it's going to be our new coffee table!
