Our Life On Purpose

We have 940 Saturdays until our kids graduate from high school and go on to college. That's 18 summers to make the most of our time with them.

Every year, we make resolutions to be intentional. Eat less, exercise more, get up earlier etc. We want to live our life on purpose, be intentional about parenting and being together and make family our favorite thing.

About two times a month we send out updates in our newsletter about what we're doing. We'll be creating our own resources on how to get more out of your family time, so sign up to be notified when they're finished.

Our Life

We love family time, and though sometimes that means we have more mess than we'd like, we want to share our journey with you. Follow along as we share our favorite experiments and experiences as we try to make every moment count.

Though the days are long, the years are short.

On Top of the Hoover Dam (November 2018). • It’s so cool to me that you can be in two different time zones at once! •

Here’s another post of the Hoover Dam. This is the kind of quirky little experience that is my favorite. Being able to walk across a bridge and stand on the Nevada/Arizona state line 🤓. How fun is that?! • And of course we had to get ALL the posed family pictures with the different state signs . • The Mike O’Callaghan/Pat Tillman Bridge should definitely be a part of your trip to the if you go. You get the fun little state line experience, but also awesome views of the Dam, the Colorado River, and the mountains. Such a great stop! •

We're still here.

In this newsletter, I we talk about how great it was that we could pick back up with friends, how we're feeling about 10 months of RV Travel, and as an experiment, have provided the audio of the entire newsletter. So let me know if that works for you guys — it's sort of the audiobook version for all you audible learners like me.

• Some of our most favorite adventures have been the ones we least expected and some of the most amazing sunsets have been the ones we weren’t looking for. •

The Hoover Dam Really Surprised Us

By Joseph

We were going from Hurricane, Utah to Lake Havasu, Arizona — so naturally, I located the half-way point and searched for RV Parks nearby. Turns out — that's also where the Hoover Dam is. This unexpected trip turned out to be one of our favorite experiences. I would call it a MUST.

One last post from our time in St. Louis. The was one of the best zoos we have ever been too! And the best part was that it was FREE! • The kids saw a polar bear, a grizzly bear, penguins, a hippo and many more amazing animals. • St. Louis is such a family friendly city with so much to see and do for free! So glad we made the last minute decision to add it to this leg of the trip. •

25 of 50 states! After 9 months of #fulltimervlife, we have been to half of the United States! • We only count the states that we have visited since we set off on our adventure this past August; and only those that we have at least spent 1 night in.• We have tentative plans to visit the rest, but it will still take us a little while. Which, hey, I don’t mind …this and thing are right up my alley. •

While in St. Louis in May, we took the tram tour and it was so cool….and a little bit scary . But mostly cool. • Swipe to the second picture to see a replica of what the tram car looks like. And if you zoom in to the top of the arch, you can see teeny tiny little black dots. That’s where the tram takes you….to the middle of the arch way, way up there in the sky! • If your claustrophobic or afraid of heights, this is probably not your jam. And though I am mildly afraid of both things. I managed to suppress them to enjoy the experience. • Definitely worth the money for the tour. The museum inside the visitors center was awesome too. So if your are in the area check both of them out! •

A few weeks ago we decided to change our route a little bit and head over to for the week. Definitely a perk of carrying your house behind you. • It was so great to get to spend time with people that are dear to us, but normally we only get to see once a year. Another perk of #fulltimetravel! • @anaponguta and her sweet kids were so hospitable! We all had a blast! We can’t wait to see them again at in June! • Thank you, Ana for everything! You all are the best! •

“Many people will walk in and out of your life, but only true friends leave footprints in your heart.” ~ Eleanor Roosevelt • We have been blessed with so many amazing friends throughout our life. So grateful that traveling has done nothing but add more great people to that list! •
