Hiking the hills of Maine

Hiking the hills of Maine - family hiking and gorgeous views are a great combination - Camden, Maine - traveling with kids - summer road trips - homeschooling on the road
We'd heard about how fun Camden, Maine was. Several people had encouraged us to go. But I was still taken aback by its beauty!

One afternoon of our time there we decided to go for a hike. Trip Advisor pointed us to Camden Hills State Park. We took the beautiful drive to the top of Mount Battie. The views of Penobscot Bay and the surrounding areas are just spectacular from the top of the mountain.

Two days in Boston


We took a trip to New England this summer to escape the August heat of Nashville.

Flying into Boston, we started our trip with a day in the big city. First we needed to find some lunch! With the help of Yelp we discovered Souper Roll Up Cafe in Cambridge. There we ate delicious soup, wraps, and sandwiches served to us by the owner. It's a small shop and our order came out quickly.

A Day in Woodstock, VT


A summer trip to Woodstock, VT - a great quaint, historical town - perfect for a summer day trip with the family.

Set among the trees, gorges, streams, quaint houses, and lots of history, Vermont is truely a place of beauty.

This past summer we visited the small town of Woodstock, VT, not far from the western border of New Hampshire. July in Vermont is quiet pleasant with warm weather and lots of blooming flowers in the landscapes.
