Last weekend, for Daddy's birthday, we went on a trip to Maine. Come to think of it, that sounds kind of familiar...
First stop, LL Bean. Mommy bought me some new winter shoes.
These boots are made for dancing!
Then on to hiking at a little park.
Hiking at Wolfe's Neck
On the hike Ah Gu spotted a frog!
Where'd it go?
Then we went to the hotel. When we opened the window, guess what? A-pay! We were right outside the airport! I got to watch airplanes take off all weekend!
What's this do?
After checking out the airplanes, it was time for grownups to start with the eating of these big red crabbies they call "lobstah".
The next day we drove further up the coast and went for a walk in another park. This one was supposed to have quite a view of the coast.
View of the coast
Well we got to walk anyway, and mommy let me "hike" by myself! It wasn't so much fun for her later when I decided I'd rather play in the mud, but hey, if you're going to let me explore...
Getting shoes dirty
After hike, more lobstah.
Mama and Ah Gu match!
On this trip, I learned I like chowder.
Driving back down the coast we went to an aquarium where you could touch the fishies. In theory.
I don't think I'll touch the sea 'tah either
They also had a big half-blue half-red lobstah too. It wasn't half cooked. Daddy said it was born like that.
You can't touch this
On our last day we went out to see a lighthouse, like in my Lighthouses book that grandma got me.
Portland Head Light
I tried to ring the bell to warn the ships of the dangerous rocks, but it didn't make much noise.
Then we went to the train museum! Actually, these were "trolleys" which are like trains but don't have engines. Daddy says he gets to ride one every day but he was still into the trolleys.
First stop was the fields, where the grownups made all the kids work picking pumpkins while they sat around and drank cider.
Hard at work
Then we rode around the countryside in the train until we got back to the start.
After the cider, Ah Gu had a Moxie
I got to wear an engineer hat and drive a trolley.
Where's the steering wheel?
But I think I liked the pumpkin best...
Finally it was time for one last lobstah. I got the claw and then Ah Gu gave me some of the meat from inside the body.
Daddy ate so much lobstah I think he might have turned into one.
It was a fun fun trip. Hopefully we get to go back next year!
