I last vacationed in Maine around the age of 10, so it had been a hot minute. But I found a new appreciation for Kennebunkport when we visited in August with my family! My dad has been trying to make a family vacation happen for a while (aside from our normal summer trips to the Cape), so we were all pretty psyched when this worked out. Granted, my older sister had a baby the prior week and was unable to join us for our Maine vacation, we’re still counting it a win!
I was hoping for nice weather the week we were in Maine, and it was pretty perfect. Every morning we got up and went down to breakfast, where E enjoyed blueberry pancakes every. single. day. Then we’d head over to the pool until it was naptime because #toddlerlife. After E’s nap, we’d walk downtown, maybe get a snack, shop, or just enjoy the harbor views. We ate dinner down in Kennebunkport Village pretty much every night, and then we’d make our way back to the hotel.

what a sunset this was!
There was only one day that rained, so we couldn’t do our usual pool/downtown routine. Instead, my husband found a trolley museum nearby, and I am not sure who was more excited about it, him or our daughter…. (Spoiler: it was him)
I’m going to do a separate post on where we stayed because otherwise this post will be overloaded with photos.
Have you ever been to Maine?
