Squam Lake Natural Science Center

As soon as we walked into the Squam Lake Natural Science Center, we knew it would be unlike any animal park we’ve been to.  My girls immediately let their creativity take over and pretended to be wildlife explorers scouring the forest for animals.  At the Science Center you don’t find an animal in a cage, you walk to each exhibit through beautifully maintained trails until you reach the animal in a lovely natural habitat. There are 232 acres of fields, forests, and wetlands. You can tell great lengths are taken to see that the animals are well cared for.  Most of these animals are rescued and will spend the rest of their lives in their safe, protected new home.  Let me show you some of our favorite moments of our day.

Going Away Alone for the First Time!

Don’t get me wrong…my husband and kids are the BEST people to travel with and I’m fortunate that we get to do it all the time but I can’t help being a teeny bit jealous when friends tell me they are traveling alone on business trips.  Ok…some days I’m so jealous I may actually turn a slight shade of green.  The realistic part of my brain knows they will miss their family but the dreamy part pictures them sitting out by the pool with a glass of wine and a good book.  That may be pushing it but I’m pretty sure no one is yelling from their bathroom, “There’s no more toilet paper and I’ve just pooped!”

Maine Wildlife Park

This August my girls and I went on a girls’ getaway trip to Freeport, Maine. Since the three of us are animal lovers, we decided to drive a half hour away to Gray, Maine to visit the Maine Wildlife Park.  It ended up being one of the most memorable days of the summer thanks to the hospitality of their staff.  We were able to first enjoy the park on our own and were then given a behind-the-scenes tour to get up close to some of our favorite animals.  Little did we know how close.

Portland Science Center

You slowly make your way through the ship, passing the 1st and 3rd class accommodations.  You hear the band sadly playing on the deck and you slide your hand over the large piece of ice as you hear the words that will change your life forever…Titanic is Sinking!
