Driving (and driving, and driving) to Maine

Happy to be out of the car for a while! (Somewhere in Indiana, I think?)

This is how Daddy spent most of the drive to Maine... actually, most of the time he had both phones going at once... while driving! (The perils of going on vacation while running a Senate campaign!)
That is, unless Little Mister was borrowing one of his phones.

On day two, we made it to Niagara Falls:

On day three, we stopped by Williamstown and showed the kids the spot where we met:
We finally made it to Maine (we've never been so glad to get out of the car in our lives) and the the Short Sands beach was a big hit. It was unseasonably warm all week, so that first day, when I just expected to go down and dig in the sand for a bit, the kids all went into the water in their clothes, since I hadn't put suits on them!

Don't let this picture fool you. Miss G wasn't at ALL interested in sampling the lobster. Nor was Big Guy, though Little Mister proved himself to be a good downeast boy by eating lobster meat faster than I could get it out of the shell!
And after dinner, he helped with the dishes:
Okay, I'm out of time on borrowed bandwidth (our so-called high speed internet takes WAY too long to download things) so I'm out for now! More thrilling and exciting adventures in Maine to come!
