Good Morning, Day 11!

Yesterday was truly an adventure. It began with a complete mixup of time. We’re bouncing between two time zones and so the time our guide said he would pick us up was an hour sooner than we’d thought. He was knocking on the door as I was just about to shower. Oops! Today we ate […]

Good Morning, Day 10!

While it was a long day of driving, it was broken up by BEAUTIFUL scenery. We weren’t so sure about the Meteor Crater, but we are so glad we stopped. It’s quite a sight to see! The crater itself could fit 20 football fields with 2 million spectators. It’s massive. The winds were insane which […]

Good Morning, Day 9!

Good morning! We are currently camped near Meteor Crater National Landmark. As we began our drive yesterday, we decided that Ray needed a serious bath, so we found a truck wash. That was an experience! We pulled in to a bay and ladders were rolled up alongside the RV and the washing commenced. We have […]

Good Morning, Day 8!

We are so grateful to our cousins, Amy and Jim, for their gracious hospitality the past two days in Santa Fe. It was relaxing, fun and delightful—a much enjoyed respite. Uncle Jim was very patient in getting this awesome ball race going on their back hill. Apparently it was a Covid build and it was, […]

Good Morning, Day 7!

We made it to our cousins’ gorgeous home in Santa Fe. It was so fun to see their smiling faces as we drove in. We had more fun catching up, playing games and having a pots and pans dance party that I didn’t post last night. The first thing the kids said this morning was, […]

Good Morning/Afternoon, Day 6!

We enjoyed another leisurely morning at camp in Taos, NM. Ruth was up early for a school zoom call. Steve was busy making our delicious camp stove coffee and I was enjoying watching the day awaken. We then heard the sweetest little voice from the window, so Ruth went in to greet him. When Emma […]

Goodnight, Day 5!

We drove two hours to Taos, NM where we are camping for the night. It’s a cute RV park with mostly traveling medical professionals who live here to work in the hospital before moving to a different part of the country where they are needed. I feel pretty safe with the kids running around and […]

Good Morning/Good Afternoon, Day 5!

My morning began with the entire RV silent. Everyone was still asleep (except for Bobby, of course). Isn’t that always the case? Whenever you can sleep in, the kids are up early. The day you need to get up, the kids sleep in. Bobby and I enjoyed time alone outside while Steve was on a […]

Goodnight, Day 4!

Yes!! We’ve had a fabulous day! We hiked a bit at the Garden of the Gods before rain chased us on to our current location. About this current location…we LOVE it!! We’re near the Great Sand Dunes and our campsite is in the middle of nowhere. You can see for miles and miles. The wind […]

Good Morning, Day 4!

Thank you, morning 4. The slow campsite mornings are the best. I have to remind myself that these moments—unstructured where the kids are playing simply—are the moments for which we are traveling. Grownups tend to overcomplicate things. I know I find myself all too often feeling uneasy when we’re not doing some big activity. I […]
