First things first: go pee on a tree, take a seat and watch everyone else set up camp. #youngestchild Everywhere she goes, she finds wildflowers and brings them to me to stick in water. We had the most beautiful centerpieces all week! I love this phase of her life and never want it to end. [...]
Kentucky/Ohio here we come!
Heading off on an adventure in grandma’s motorhome! Don’t worry, we’re parked. Stretching our legs at a rest stop somewhere in Illinois. These kids are such good travelers!

Our days were spent swimming, our nights stargazing from the hot tub. When the jet bubbles turned on, my mom exclaimed “We’re in soup! I’m a potato!” Dixie shouted at the [...]
