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: Parasailing

When we arrived in Orange Beach, Alabama Jonah was still in his 3rd cast in 7 months from breaking his arm twice. Then Covid-19 happened and quarantine delayed his cast removal. Once he got it off we quickly realized his feral little self needed some safe adrenaline. Keeping him in one piece is a challenge and we’ve learned safe adrenaline keeps him from hurling himself off of things lol. Once things started opening back up we gave him a choice of jet skis or parasailing. He LOVED it! No fear! 400 feet up in the air. That’s Jude up there with him….Taryn kept her feet firmly on the ground. Jonah said the best part was flying above the birds.

365 Project: Earning a want

Jude has been hard at work doing extra chores around the RV and for my mom during quarantine.  He’s worked SO hard to earn money that he’d like to purchase a guitar with.  He’s washed the RV (an 8 hour job!), washed the truck, cleaned windows and a bunch of other small jobs over the last few weeks.  He will reach his goal very soon!
