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.

Anybody want to guess which one of us is on a Willie Nelson kick?

Ok Meagan’s photos of Ghost are far more flattering. Look at that beautiful truck! The lady’s not too bad either. •

Hey folks!! I’m Joseph, the other half of Hinson Co. I’m gonna be posting on this account too. Anyway, Imma go ahead and explain these very random photos for context.• 1. Introducing the newest member of our rig: “Ghost” – the F250 which we love 2. In order to get more space for the kids, we switched to these extremely minimal booster seats! They pull the seatbelt down to their level. Just as safe as boosters, but 1/5th the size. They’re called miFold – around $40 at target. Worth it if you do what we do…maybe not otherwise, they have some drawbacks.

Hey Folks. Here's the deal. Meagan and I are trying to post more frequently about our life…and I'm not really doing my own thing over here, so at least for awhile, I'm going to also start posting at @hinson.co, which means you won't see many updates here. So Follow me over there!

Christmas in Texas…and other news

By Joseph

In this episode, we take you back to Moab, Utah, where we broke down on the mountain, 45 minutes out of town, and how we solved the problem of what to do when you have to move your camper and your truck is in the shop.

Also, tune in to see how we decorated for Christmas in an RV. All this and more in this episode of the Hinson Co. Report (or whatever we're calling this newsletter).

You'll also find recommendations of some of our favorite Youtube Channels.

Before the holidays, we left of in Utah. Let’s get back there, shall we? • Dead Horse Point State park is one of the most breathtaking places we have been and it is a STATE park, not a national park! If you are in Moab, Utah. Do not miss this place! • You can view both the Colorado River and Canyonlands National Park from overlooks inside the park. They even have a Jr. Ranger program for kids too. • We had the privilege of spending an entire week here at this amazing campground taking in views of canyons, cliffs and snow capped mountains right from our spot! • I‘m still in awe that we are getting to live our dream. What is your dream? What does is take for you to go after it? Start with small steps or giant leaps, just go after it today! •

I have to say San Antonio was one of the most festive and fun places I have ever spent New Year’s Eve, which was totally unexpected. • The River Walk was still all decorated with lights and we were able to make it there early enough to have a nice dinner by the river. • Just as we were leaving, the streets started filling with people dressed in bright, festive gear ready to ring in the new year. • San Antonio apparently hosts the largest free New Year’s Eve festival in the state of Texas! • We chose a bit more of a low key option though, and headed back to Bertie (our travel trailer) to finish out our night. But at midnight as the new year came in, it sounded and looked like the entire city was erupting in fireworks! We ran outside to join in all excitement! It was such a cool experience! • So if you love spending big holidays in busy, exciting and festive places, then the charming city of San Antonio might be just your thing. • Happy New Year everyone! •

“Buy experiences not things. Experiences make people happier than spending on things. Things get broken over time and go out of style. Experiences get better every time you talk about them.” ~ Jean Chatsky • Taking the girls to see the Moscow Ballet perform the Nutcracker was definitely one of my favorite gifts we gave the girls this Christmas. • From watching their excitement to get dressed up, to their looks of pure amazement as the ballerinas twirled around the stage. • I am grateful for each of these experiences that we are having and will hopefully talk about about for many years to come. What kind of memorable experiences did you have with your family this year? •
