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 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, […]

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 […]

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 […]

Goodnight, Day 3

After a much needed detour to a liquor store after this hectic day, we arrived at the Garden of the gods campsite in Colorado Springs. It was a relaxing evening and our first “real” meal followed by an RV square dance (YeeHaw). The other campers are very friendly. The kids actually played with a few […]

Good Morning, Day 3!

Everything is uneventful until it isn’t. Someone didn’t close the convection oven all the way and a pan fell out and shattered our cooktop. Getting angry doesn’t change the fact that it happened, so we just have to figure out how to get it repaired or replaced. Today (before this happened) has been spent trying […]

Good Morning/Goodnight, Day 2!

Father’s Day morning was relaxing and peaceful as we all settle in to motorhome mornings. Ahhhh, how we love this pace and this small space. I’m not sure why, with nine of us living in small quarters, we love it so, but we do. All of the stress we carry from our daily lives seems […]

We’re off! Day 1

Our big adventure has begun and we are thrilled to be underway. I blogged our first two RV trips and really enjoyed the opportunity to reflect each day. I then have memory books printed of the blog posts and give them to the kids as gifts. They’re treasured keepsakes. We hope you enjoy following our […]
