Good Morning, Day 15!

Happy 4th of July! I’m so grateful to be an American and to live in a beautiful country where we (each one of us) has the charge to, not only be good stewards of our country, but to continue to make her better. We only have this responsibility because so many sacrificed everything to make […]

Good Morning, Day 14!

It’s 9am and all are still sleeping. Zion did not disappoint! Everything you hear about this place is true. Everywhere you turn is something breathtaking—from the peaks to the canyons—from the river to the vibrant greenery cascading from the enormous, colorful rock face. Our day began with a great hike up Overlook trail. It was […]

Good Morning, Day 13!

At 3am this morning we were awakened to a horrible noise. We flew out of bed. Bobby had fallen from his bunk on to the hard tile floor. He was very dazed because he was so asleep when he fell. His nose began to bleed and his arm was bruised. Poor guy! After a good […]

Good Morning, Day 12!

The kids are still sound asleep because yesterday was AMAZING! It was one of the best days (if not the best) ever for our family. From start to finish, it was awesome!! It began with a beautiful drive to Kanab, Utah to our campsite for the night. Thankfully, Mama A picked a good location right […]

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 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, […]

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 […]
