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.

We finished up the month of September in Keystone and Rapid City, SD so I could run the Mount Rushmore Half Marathon. • It was such a fun race! There were so many gorgeous views and so much beautiful scenery the whole 13 miles! • If you swipe to the 2nd picture you can see when my reaction to seeing Mt. Rushmore on the course for the first time.😀 It was so cool! • If you ever get a chance to run a race in the series. You should totally do it! It was one of the most fun races I’ve ever done! •

Happy Thanksgiving from our family to yours! • First big holiday on the road was a success! I managed to cook up all our holiday favorites in the tiny rv kitchen, and Joseph fit all the left-overs in the fridge which I think was probably the bigger accomplishment . • Hope your day was filled with lots of good food and family too! •

We were excited to ride on the Needles Highway and even though it was rainy and cold, we decided to do it anyway! • We were not sure if our big huge diesel, which the kids have decided to name Boulder😛, would fit in the tunnels. But….it did!

Sunsets and sunrises are my favorite! Seeing them in each state and place has been one of the best things! • Look at this gorgeous sunset over Legion Lake! I made Joseph stop the truck on our ride back to the campsite so I could snap this picture . •

Wind Cave National Park was the 2nd National Park we hit up while in South Dakota. • It is one of the longest caves in the world…and they still haven’t found the end of it yet! • I was feeling a bit claustrophobic in the beginning of the tour but luckily made it all the way to the end .

We went for a drive on a hunt for some cool wildlife. And Sage Creek Rim Road did not disappoint! • Seeing bison and prairie dogs just chilling by the side of the road was such an insane experience! We were all hanging out the windows trying catch a closer look. •

“Twenty years from now you will be more disappointed by the things you didn’t do than the things you did. So throw off the bowlines. Sail away from the safe harbor. Catch the trade winds in your sails. Explore. Dream. Discover. “ ~ H. Jackson Brown Jr.
