Lots of much needed down time happening here. We did take the kids to the lake front beach the other night though. Isn’t it funny how it can feel both so peaceful and chaotic at the same time?? KIDS!
Dynamics are changing (as they often do in big families). Jonah has been getting invited to head out to ride the trails with the big kids and I love to see it. It’s good for him, he craves the independence and freedom. And I’m thankful Z doesn’t mind a little one on one time with me while his bud ditches us to go be big. ❤️
Confession: I took two naps today. One during Jason’s lunch break and one after he got off work. I think my brain is just tired. Really, really, tired. I’d probably feel a little guilty about it except we also went on 2 adventures today. This sunset after kayaking at Ridgway State Park was a nice way to end our day.
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.

We filled the days with games, crafts, movies, dog snuggling, an RV […]
1. My timehop app tells me that on this date last year we were back on the road and leaving Texas for the year. Our current plan is to be here for another 7 weeks at least. That’s ok, this is where we need to be, but it reminds me of how much I miss the open road and the excitement of our next adventure just around the corner. We are not a family that is good at sitting still.
2. When you have been disconnected all day and the WiFi comes on.
3. Zachary is so much fun at this age. He will turn 3 in February (?!?!?) and every other thing […]
Cadillac Ranch is one of those fun, quirky, stops we just couldn’t pass up. Armed with one can of paint each, we headed out in to this field to leave our mark on 10 Cadillacs half buried in a field. And my kids absolutely LOVED it.
While I knew Taryn would love this adventure, I wasn’t sure about Jonah. But he totally did! Before we even started painting he wanted to figure it all out and touch all the textures. Plus, free reign to be destructive and creative, […]
