Acadia, we love you!

We just got back from a extra-long weekend in Acadia National Park. It's about a 6 hour trip from our house, but it is sooooo worth it. We stayed in a little cabin (same one we stayed in last year) and Stephen again had lots of fun playing with all of his toys....I mean, climbing in the cabinets (he called it his bathroom....)

If you haven't been to Acadia, you are missing out on one of the most beautiful places to visit. There is sooo much to do - we've been 3 times and never hiked, biked, or climbed the same trail more than once. Here is a view on our way up to the top of Flying Mountain, the hike we did on our first day:

There are TONS of wild blueberries all along the hiking trails - here is Steve and Stephen picking some yummy ones!


Rainbow over the sound
Taking a break from biking and checking out the beaver dams.
Lily pads in the pond
Carriage roads are awesome for biking!

Taking a bite of my nose!
Hiking around Jordan Pond

Running around on Sand Beach

Views from the top of Cadillac Mountain - check out the HUGE cruise ship!

Last day...one more hike.
