Maine with kids: A visit to Portland

We’re in Vermont (and very excited for a trip to the Basin Harbor Club this weekend) but I wanted to share a quick photo postcard of our trip to Maine earlier this week. We spent a few days in and around Portland, which is where my father grew up and where I was born. I loved showing the boys my grandparents’ house and also exploring some new places like Peaks Island in Casco Bay.

If you’re visiting Maine with kids, I definitely recommend stopping in Portland as there are so many things to do (plus lots of amazing pizza). I’ll have more details next week – meanwhile, I hope you enjoy the pictures.
