The Dunbar Family
The Dunbar family all together
We raised our family in Southwest Harbor, too. Kirstie is our oldest, Hollie's in the middle and our youngest is Lucas. We are a very close knit group. Kirstie ended up finishing her college education in California. She met her husband Dave there and they married and moved back to Maine long enough to have Jack(our oldest grandson) and Leo(our youngest grandson). While they were living in Maine, our daughter Hollie and her husband, Donnie, had our middle grandson, Joshua. At that time all of our kids lived within 1.7 miles from us. It was great! When Leo was almost a year old they moved back to California to the town of El Portal where Dave became the head of trails for Yosemite National Park. So, the rest of the family journeys out to see them as much as possible. Lucas married Sarah in 2003 and had our 1st granddaughter, Mallory Kate, 5/16/2006. This picture was taken 3/25/2006. The first time the California contingent came back to Maine they called on the cell phone when they got to the Kittery Bridge and Jack said with pure joy, "We're in Maine, LaLa! We're in Maine!". You can take the boy out of Maine but you can't take Maine out of the boy!
Summer of 2009
Taken in our backyard
It's hard to believe it has taken 3 years to get another family picture! (And close to a year to get it on the website!) Our family is growing ~ Phoebe Jane was born to Lucas and Sarah on March 25, 2008. She and her sister, Mallory Kate, are close in age and as sisters. ~ Hollie is moving back home this June with Joshua and her fiance', Budd. They lived in Virginia for 2 years but we are happy to have them home, again.We are so pleased to have Budd's family join ours ~ his daughter, Laura, is in the picture, too. ~ Kirstie and Dave bought the El Portal Market outside of Yosemite National Park. Dave still works on trails and Kirstie runs the store. That and raising Jack and Leo keeps them busy. We are able to all be together at least twice a year. This picture was taken after we had been musseling on the Algerine Coast. We enjoyed the mussels at a family cook-out. There is nothing like a summer in Maine! We at Dunbar Real Estate and the Dunbar family hope everyone gets a chance to experience it at sometime in their lives ~
Summer of 2010
At Seawall in Acadia National Park
This picture was taken at the Thurston family reunion, (Paula's dad's family). It was a beautiful day and a great success! The patriach and matriach of the family are now, 90 and 85 ~ great genes. We were surprised to have 2 new grandchildren on the way when this was taken. Hollie and Budd added Jolene Marie Sunshine to their family on March 5, 2011 and Lucas and Sarah added Cassidy Charlotte, 3 days later, on March 8, 2011. What wonderful additions ~ granchildren are the greatest!
Summer of 2015
The larger Dunbar Family
Here we are, again, at Seawall, our favorite place to picnic ~ The 2 new members, Jolene Marie Sunshine and Cassidy Charlotte are making their 1st appearance in the family photo!
A few weeks after this picture was taken, our daughter-in-law, Sarah, gave birth to our 5th granddaughter, Aubrey Ellis Jordan Dunbar ~ we are so happy about our new addition! We all continue to arrange as much time together as possible and make family the priority ~ some of the best times, are here, on Mount Desert Island! (We hope to make more frequent updates but real estate is a busy life here in Maine ~)
