Our family last visited Acadia National Park in 2009 when the kids were just two- and three-years old. At the time, we explored the Schoodic Peninsula — a lesser known entrance to the park, where a 6-mile loop treated us to spectacular views of lighthouses and forested islands. The visit was a quiet way to introduce our young family to the park, and while we loved our first adventure together, we left wanting to experience more iconic spots in Acadia.

Every once and awhile, MP goes through old photos and is reminded of a great event. Such is the case with the colorful, wonderfully quirky July 4th parade in Bath. We visited during the summer of 2013, and even though it was a hot, sweaty morning, our whole family just loved everything about this festive, community-powered parade.

As soon as the weather turns warmer, our family seeks out walks that are new to us. The Trout Pond Trail to Cascade Falls, which is part of Saco Bay Trails, is only 1/4 mile long and dog-friendly.

In February, when the first of two big snowstorms hit, our family visited Heywood Kennel in Augusta for our inaugural dog sledding adventure. Owner Colby Briggs and his partner Erin Noll have operated the kennels since May 2016 after his parents retired from the business.

Located off a busy road, Heywood is home to a wood-fired warming hut and 30 good-natured sled dogs. The temperature was below 20-degrees on the morning we arrived, and our hosts were kind enough to offer extra snow pants (MP forgot her own) and hand warmers. Once we were ready, Colby warned us that the dogs would be loud when we met them at the kennels and for good reason. After a mild January with little snow, the dogs couldn’t wait to pull a sled.
