Our Camping Adventure Vacation

[lead dropcap=”yes”]Following up on my last post on our desire to create great memories connected to camping vacations for our kids, we went camping in Maine last week during our vacation. It was a bit of a roundabout journey, going up through the White Mountains of New Hampshire then across to Windham, Maine, in one day.[/lead]

The kids wanted to see mountains for the first time and my mom lives in Windham. Staying in Windham one night, my mom came with us as we then traveled up to midcoast Maine, specifically to Camden and Rockport, two places that are indelibly part of who I am.

We stayed there for two nights, which were a bit tough for Ben and Anthony in particular. Anthony had the hardest time sleeping, in part I think because he was treated mercilessly by the mosquitos. Nevertheless everyone had a blast, even though we had to break camp in the rain as we woke up on our last morning and it was pouring. But by the time we got back to my mom’s house later that day, the sun was out again. We stayed there one more night and because it was Melanie’s birthday we went out to dinner. We came home the next day, on Saturday.

All in all, it was pretty successful. Here’s a video I made of our trip:
