we did go to Bar Harbor in 2014. I just never got around to posting it. I’ve got to have it here as part of our family record. This is a tradition that just keeps getting better, more beautiful, more a part of us. I can’t believe that I don’t have a picture of how we biked in 2014. But it was highly evolved from 2011 when we had all four kids behind us. Em was on her own bike with a little gator bar attaching her to Jeff’s for part of the time, but partly on her own. Peter biked over half of our miles on this little balance bike. When he got tired we just bungee corded it onto the back of his child seat behind me on my bike. He was so tough and so adorable being a “big boy” as we rode through that wonderland. We usually stop first at Sand Beach. That place is like balm to my soul. (and I love our photo bomber, Conner).Our Motel room was at the very very top of the hill. Great practice for Em and her bike. Eli and Julie met up with us at Jordan Pond house on Saturday for a picnic and to join the rest of the fun. It was so great to have them there, to show them this place that has lodged it’s way into our hearts. I think they’re converted. Sunday Church of the Rocks and a hike over on that side of the Island. Peter also feels alive, just like Hazel. I love this kid. He was such a trooper hiking up this mountain. Breath taking views at every turn. I think this is where Hazel discovered her love for selfies. Me and Em and Julie and Eli and Zara were the only ones who braved the bitter wind to watch the sunset on Cadillac mountain. We had a great brunch at Two Cats on Monday. And hiked through Sand Beach and up onto the head with E and J and the Stallings. Love this shot of Charlie, looking over the beautiful world.
Somehow I got my whole family to pose for a picture! Miracle.
