STL non-arch themed happenings.(us grant, farmers market, city museum).
our last day in st. louis was a saturday, so derek was able to join us as we crammed in as much as we possibly could. (he took a lot of days off for the big things, but usually had to work while we did the smaller monuments and such). we started off with a […]
chicago. day three.gifted boat ride, farmers market, stressful departure.
on our third and final day day in chicago, our only scheduled activity was a boat tour gifted to us by the grandlidboms. in fact, i’m like 99% sure that every boat tour i have been on in my adult life has been gifted by the grandlidboms. anyways, we woke up bright and early, threw […]
cleveland rocks! (but mostly because of “a christmas story”)
after our time in batavia, we headed west, all the way to erie, pennsylvania (whomp whomp), where we spent the night to be closer to cleveland, where we had mid morning plans. we planned to stay at a walmart, but when we arrived and noticed no other rvs, we inquired within and learned that this […]

savannah adventures.slave quarters, forts, museums, food, farmers markets, shopping.
the final stop on the lidbom rambling roadshow (although we didn’t know it at the time) was a little place in yemassee, south carolina. it’s sort of located between charleston and savannah, so our plan was to do a bit of exploring in each spot. we ended up mostly sticking to savannah, though, because on […]
st. augustine with the grandlidboms.
for our final stop on our loop around florida, we met up with the grandlidboms in saint augustine. the wait between the last time we saw them and this time wasn’t as long as some of the visits out west, but the kids were just as excited, nonetheless. our first stop was dinner at a […]
up the atlantic coast of florida.
