A Day in the Life…

Steamboat in March!

| March 31, 2014

We took an extended weekend to Steamboat with Jon’s family!  And it was nice!  Good time to relax, not worry about school or schedules…  It’s nice to just be a family hanging out!  And we did some fun stuff too!  We went to a tubing hill in town, ice skating and plenty of swimming in […]

End on Bubbles…

| March 5, 2013

Our last night in Orlando.  Bath time. Apparently, Jon didn’t think we had enough bubbles the first time – and also found out that bath gel gets impressive bubble results…  I’m surprised we didn’t lose one of them… I kind of love this… soapy bums!   Once all the butterfly and tiger residue was removed, […]

Meanwhile, Back at the Ranch…

| March 4, 2013

School loosely followed us this week.  We talked about J for Jewel and how Jesus is more valuable than anything else.  We also did some fun J – jellybean stuff. I think B actually liked getting back to some structure. Mara’s morning hair and post-jellybean graphing spoils. Face paint!  Oh they were excited!  M’s requirement […]

The Happiest Place on Earth!

| March 3, 2013

And also the chilliest of weather we’ve had on our trip so far!  It was around 50 degrees with the wind chill. BUT we got to go to Magic Kingdom of Disney World for FREE and we had thankful hearts! Headed to Disney in our Kia Soul – Dad had to sit in the trunk […]

Orlando Bound.

| February 27, 2013

The last couple years (minus newborn baby years) we’ve taken our big family trip with Jon’s parents in January or close-to.  Jon and his dad have a work conference out here and it’s a perfect place to tag along to! We decided to get in our trip this year before baby #3 arrived and before […]

Wyyyy – Oming

| August 12, 2012

We went for a brief visit to see Great Granddad and Great Grandma Alice!  We road-tripped with my very own momma! We had an exciting encounter with a deer on the way there, but my steadfast husband was driving and he kept us from danger!  Just some fun swerving… We got to see Yellowstone and […]

{Day 7} Yes, there was a day 7 on our trip, I just didn’t have time until now to announce it :) Jon and I got these great gift cards from my dad, Greg, for Christmas that you can choose an activity to do most places around the United States (kind of like a cruise […]


| January 10, 2012

{Day 6} We were on the front lines to open the park at 10am and closed the park standing in line at Storybook Land at 8pm.  We didn’t know how the day would go with the kids so we took it as it came.  Grandparents took M back around 5pm to feed and sleep her […]

Laguna Beach Bums

| January 8, 2012

{Day 5} In the car most of the day moving to a condo in L.A.  We stopped along the way at Laguna Beach and played for awhile.  Mara enjoyed the sand, Breyton had to warm up to it as usual :)  Mara really wanted to get into the water – we had to keep reminding […]

Some Extras

| January 8, 2012

Here are some extra photos that I got from Randy (Jon’s dad) from the last couple days. Some behind the scenes work …     In-N-Out Burger  :)    

A Day with Naps!

| January 7, 2012

{Day 4} Yes!  Today we were around the condo, so the kids actually got their naps!  Amazing. Jon, Randy and Breyton took off to Irvine this morning to Cars and Coffee where around 300 really nice cars were parked to gawk at.  He had fun to say the least. Mara and I took a walk […]

Aquarium & La Jolla

| January 7, 2012

{Day 3}   Caught Mara undressing herself last evening. At the Aquarium.  We were sure to find Dory and Nemo (and the starfish, unshown)!  The jellyfish were cool! Kids got to touch sea life in the outdoor tide pools.  Both touched the starfish but only M was brave enough to touch a sea cucumber :)  […]

Oceanside, California

| January 4, 2012

{Day One} Airplane: Went well.  Kids were up early so Mara slept most of the plane flight.  Breyton was entertained by books, iPad, mazes, food, etc.  His ears hurt at the end of the flight, which a really nice lady behind us offered several things to help him – gum, being the winner.     […]

A Quick Sneak

| December 26, 2011

Jon and I went on a quick trip in November for my birthday to, yes, Vegas.  :)  There’s not much I can say about it because what happens in Vegas… But I will say it was refreshing to have a couple days to do whatever we wanted, without time constraints.  And a big thank you […]

Papa’s House!

| September 14, 2011

Papa has told me a couple times that the highway goes 2 ways.  He is, indeed, telling the truth, we came to find out! Jon went on a trip to California two weeks ago for an M Coupe fest – Dorkfest, named kind-of appropriately :)  So, instead of staying home for 5 days trying to […]
