Chasing the 2024 Solar Eclipse in Maine - Pt 2

Continuing our journey to see the 2024 Solar Eclipse! 

We're in Maine! The End Is Here! Literally!

Houlton Maine is the last location in the USA that the eclipse covers. The very stop on the freeway is the border crossing with Canada!

Mommy-Son Day - 2024/02/22

Just like Alli and I were having our special day out together, Theresa and Ian are off doing their own thing for the entire day! 

This boy doesn't really like to eat breakfast. But a morning start with McDonald's french fries is good!

Chasing the 2024 Solar Eclipse - Part 1

We've been excited for the 2024 Eclipse for years now! It's been on the back of everyone's mind since we flew out to Missouri to watch the 2017 Eclipse

This year, the Eclipse is traveling across the US from south to north, from Texas to Maine. And look at all those major cities it is going through! 

The kids were so little for the last one! 

They don't really remember it, except from my previous write-up. Alli was 1 and Ian was 3! Can't blame them I suppose. But this one, hopefully they'll remember, now that they're 8 and 10!

Oakland Nature Preserve Firefly Walk - 2024/04/10

Theresa saw on Facebook that the nearby nature preserve had a bunch of fireflies coming out this time of year. The preserve is right by the kids gymnastics, so we stopped by!

Chasing the 2024 Eclipse

More to come in a future post, but we’re in Maine for the solar eclipse! 

Our Hotel Hangout Day in Orlando - 2024/03/05

Sometimes the kids will surprise you. When we asked what their favorite part about Japan was, Disney, Universal, Tokyo, the zoo, etc., they said they really liked hanging out at the hotels with the lounges with all the free food and drinks. Okay... Well Theresa happened to have a free night stay that is expiring soon and there's a hotel with a lounge here in Orlando. Let's make a couple fun days out of it!
