as we trekked home across the midwest, we passed through (or slightly detoured to) the capital cities of several states, and stopped to for obligatory photos for #lidbomstatecapitaltour. these three brought our grand total to 27. firstly, lincoln nebraska. we stopped on our way to the homestead national monument. it was a pretty quick and […]
brown v. board of education.
after our little stop in lincoln nebraska, we were headed to just outside kansas city, missouri next. the commute was only a few hours, so i stuffed in as much as i could on our travel day. so, after our morning at the quilt museum, the kiddos and i hit the road, with a plan […]
life after glacier, heading east.
we had a fantabulous time in glacier, but all good things much come to an end, or whatever it is they say. so, on july 5th, we began our long trip from northwest montana towards the black hills of south dakota, with a few stops along the way. first of all, in case you were […]
glacier. redrock falls, and more.
finally! the moment we’ve all been waiting for. or, well, the week that i’ve been waiting for. GLACIER NATIONAL PARK!! when we were planning this summer road trip, the idea was to hit a lot of the places we missed during our 3+ years on the road. but, since glacier national park is pretty much […]
from MN to (WI to MN to WI to MN to) ND.
before we left the twin cities, and minnesota altogether, i was determined to squeeze in one more activity. derek had to work all day before he could make the journey to meet us in fargo, so we had quite a bit of time to kill. i settled on driving a little out of the way, […]
great smokies. camping, travel day, clingmans dome, and miscellany.
well. it appears i’ve gotten incredibly behind with my blogging again. the truth is, i’m not very motivated these days. but, we have some rv trips coming up, and i know we will have lots of adventures, and if i fall much further behind, i’m not sure i’ll ever blog again. so without further ado, […]
crayola museum.easton, pa.
after two legs of the trip, we found ourselves just outside easton, pennsylvania, home of the crayola museum. this is another spot that we visited when we were very first on the road, and we were pretty excited to go back again. i took the kids, which gave derek some time to do his actual […]
new england apple picking detour.
the ride home from acadia is somewhere in the 17 hour range, so we broke it up strategically across four travel days, finding stopping points along the way where we could do something fun in the morning and then load up and drive to the next spot in the afternoon and evening. our first such […]
road trip to maine.
well. i’m obviously a million months behind in blogging. years even. decades. ha. well, here goes. another frantic attempt to catch up. when i left off, we were wrapping up september. october was quite an exciting month, as we kicked things off with a road trip to acadia national park. since we currently reside in […]
last days in sc. and on the road.
now it’s time for that random post that i make every now and then to catch up on the less adventurous parts of our travels. only this one is much more bittersweet. because it’s the last time we would be on the road in our rv. and the memories are of a time of stress […]
