Hot Springs National Park

Yesterday we loaded up and took a bunch of empty jugs to Hot Springs National Park in hopes of getting some water. This NP was our first stop out of Texas when we launched two plus years ago. During our first visit we learned that there are huge fountains available to the public to get free (healing) water. Because national parks are still closed we didn’t know if the fountains would be blocked off. They were not and oh my goodness was it busy. Not the park or spring, but the fountains. There were people filling up entire truckloads and hundreds of containers at a time. Way busier than our first trip through when the park was open and crowded. I guess I shouldn’t be surprised by that. This spring water has so many healing properties, boosts the immune system and aids in respiration. We parked, filled up our containers and walked to the spring where no one was around. I forgot my camera so these are all iPhone pics. The kids loved returning here and reminiscing over how much has changed and all the experiences they’ve had on the road since our first stop. ❤️

365 Project: One last ride on the golf cart

One last ride on the golf cart before we hit the road. We planned to park in her driveway for 2 weeks. Covid-19 said we needed to stay 10 weeks instead. I’m SO thankful we were with her when it hit. It was nice to have help while really sick and also adjusting to a new normal of Jason working full time. We had space to move and could spread out in her house. The boys spent hours riding around on her huge porch. Going to the house in the mornings helped the kids feel like they were going somewhere. We filled the days with games, crafts, movies, dog snuggling, an RV reno and a bunch of golf cart rides. My mom isn’t one to sit still during retirement and I while I know my crew is a lot of noise and chaos, I also know she’d have been so bored quarantined alone. Thanks for taking us in Mom ❤️ I’ll always cherish this time and memories made.
