Day Six ~ Final Day of Vacation

Family Vacation ~ Children’s Museum 
and Shopping
 
For the last day of vacation we decided to check out the Children’s Museum & Theater of Maine. We belong to the Children’s Museum in Providence, RI so we just used our reciprocal passes to get in. It was such a fun place for the kids! They had four levels of activities for kids, and so many fun interactive stations. The kids loved milking the cow, catching lobsters from the lobster boat, and pumping gas in the car. If you are in the Portland area with kids, then you definitely need to check out this wonderful museum.

After the museum, we decided to go back to downtown Portland for lunch and some final shopping. Our favorite store was The Black Dog, and we did some serious damage in that store. I love everything we got though, and the quality of the clothes is amazing. The kids got the two cutest rain jackets. They really needed that too! Drew also got a lobster boat replica that he had been wanting. It was in the gift shop on the corner. For lunch we ate at Exchange Street Cafe and got some yummy sandwiches before hitting the road. Overall, a very successful vacation! We will definitely be visiting New Hampshire and Maine again!
