The White Mountains of New Hampshire

I have found myself reminiscing about my favorite travel destinations lately. In the last three years of constant travel around the United States, I have found many places that we truly love. One particular gem that we explored, was New Hampshire's stunning White Mountains. In August 2016, we spent some time in this awe-inspiring terrain. The experience was incredible...and gave me a sincere longing to return...

We Rally With Fulltime Families

If you read my blog or follow my Instagram, you might know that we are not the only ones who have ditched their house for an RV and roam the country. In fact there are so many of us...that there are entire organizations created around the needs of the traveling community...

Hiking Convict Lake

Over the holidays we spent a week in the Sierra Nevada Mountains in one of our favorite mountain getaways, Mammoth Lakes. On the outskirts of town, right off of Highway 395 is Convict Lake. This picturesque spot is no stranger to my family as we have fished here many times. This winter we discovered the Convict Lake Trail, a 2.5 mile loop around the lake...

Snowboarding: Mammoth Mountain

And so the winter sports begin! My crew finally took a crack at snowboarding, and it was a huge success! Chris and the three kids each took a lesson and carved some snow on Mammoth Mountain over New Years weekend. We had the most wonderful experience...and well, everyone loved it! Not only did they gain some skills, they worked hard, had fun and perhaps...stretched their comfort zone...

Suspension

Five months in California. The unexpected. Loss for words. There has been a sense of ambivalence in our rolling home. I finally verbalized this the other day to my traveling friend. You see, for the last 33 months there has been momentum...and well, since returning to California, we are in a place of suspension...

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...
