Finding Gleanings for the Hungry

Gleanings For The Hungry is a non-profit ministry that is centered around the mission to feed the hungry in our world. We were blessed to spend a week at Gleanings and it ended up being one of the most memorable events in our journey...

Birthday Bash

As spring beckons us to be outdoors, I must make mention of a special occasion that we recently celebrated. My "center" child turned 13!!! We were able to honor this precious girl with a party at the beach! It was a very sweet time, and we even found some fresh new ways to enjoy the beach.

Indoor Kart Racing in Cali

Before leaving Southern California, we had a need for some speed! After a hectic week, we knew just how to show the kids some serious fun. MB2 Raceway has seven locations and one of them happened to be in Thousand Oaks, California. We grabbed our friends and found some wild fun on the track.

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...

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...
