Thankful

This morning I am reflecting as I write this, watching the waves crash on the shore and slowly sipping my coffee (thanks to my husband). This moment is a much needed pause. We have so much to be thankful for! The last nine months have been filled with emotion, love and craziness....and so much wonderful family time...

Exploring Zion National Park

Zion is one of those places that you know you will love, even before you visit it. One glance at a photo on Instagram or Pinterest and it is clear why people from around the world come to walk her paths and gaze at the red rock formations. With that popularity, comes a necessity to be strategic, or you will certainly be lost in the hefty dose of crowds...rather than the wilderness of the park. With some creative planning though, you can have a killer time and skate right around the crowds...

Backpacking in Zion

This was our first time backpacking in a National Park. In our attempt to venture off of the well-beaten path and enjoy the true, unspoiled beauty of the park, we ventured into Zion's backcountry wilderness. Our location was the PERFECT family spot. One peep at these pics and you can see...Zion National Park shines in the fall! We visited the first week of October...and I do believe that the foliage was at it's peak for fall beauty...

Newport Beach and Vintage Trailers

There is something nostalgic about a vintage trailer. Sprinkle two dozen or so around the water in Newport Beach and you have the makings for some memorable camping! Last week we were blessed to park our rolling home at Newport Dunes Rv Resort in Orange County...

Exotic Birds In San Diego, CA

We discovered something new in Del Mar last month. Tucked into a little corner near the fairgrounds is Free Flight, an exotic bird sanctuary. This little refuge provides visitors with knowledge, entertainment and unique inspiration. This safe haven also provides unwanted birds with the opportunity for social interaction and care...

How To Enjoy Tubbs Hill In CDA

In the heart of Coeur d'Alene, Idaho sits Tubbs Hill. On this lakeside mound...you will find the convergence of the local, lake-life scene and the summer tourism crowd. This little destination is one of my families favorite lake spots and a must for traveling families to check out. After visiting dozens of lakes in 38 states, we have found very few locations that offer up a similar summer scene...
