Mt. Rushmore!

Ryan has always wanted to take the fam on an RV trip and we finally did it!
We rented this RV,
packed it up and headed north.

The girls slept up on the bunk above the driver,
the table to the left turned into Jonah’s bed
and the couch on the right turned into Caleb’s bed.

We played LOTS of games–
our favorites were Sleeping Queens, Sequence, Pit and Pictionary.

We ended up at the KOA at Mt. Rushmore and it was BEAUTIFUL…
there is so much to do there you could spend a few days just hanging out at the KOA!

Every morning we went to the pancake tent for all you can eat pancakes and coffee…
 photo mt17.jpg
The cook would flip your pancakes to you over the wall on the left, so fun!
 photo mt6.jpg
We kayaked and swam and played horseshoes and sand volleyball and basketball and giant checkers and giant chess and rock climbed and mined for crystals and drove go carts and more–
there was so much fun to be had!

And just about every night we built a fire and made s’mores…

We visited Mt. Rushmore, the first time for all of us…

 photo mt13.jpg
and our very last morning we went horseback riding
(again, at the KOA)–
everyone (even Eden) got to ride their own horse
and the girls say it’s their very favorite part of the trip!

Taking an RV was a bit exhausting but fun and a totally different type of vacation for us–
I hear the boys are already planning us a longer RV trip for next summer…

First Monday in Canton, TX

Jill, June Anne and I drove down to shop “First Monday” down in Canton, TX
 photo canton.jpg
It’s the largest flea market in the United States and you can shop thousands of booths–
filled with old stuff and new stuff–
we gravitated toward the “old” stuff.
It was fun just looking at what other people had purchased!
We went down to get some inspiration for new jewelry and keepsakes plus new store decor,
but we shopped for ourselves as well, we couldn’t resist.
We shopped for 3 days and still didn’t see everything.
 photo canton2.jpg
The car was totally packed when we came home–
I’d say we had a successful trip!

treasure hunts.

Our family began geocaching 4 years ago
and it’s something we randomly do together as a family.
This weekend we introduced Jonah’s friend, Jun, to geocaching,
I think he had fun!
 photo geo2.jpg
We found 3 on the way home from church!
 photo geo1.jpg
We use an app on our iPhones to get the coordinates, a map and clues to help us drive around and find the hidden “treasures” right here in our town- some are just minutes from our house. When you find the treasures, you take something from the container and then you leave something. Some are big treasures and some are small trinkets or toys, but the fun is in the hunt, and then you sign the log inside with your geocache name to show you found it.

Here is the app we use:
 photo geo3.jpg
They all are over the world, so everyone can play.

We are planning to leave a few geocaches soon and use the app to watch and see who finds it,
so much fun!

Who else likes to geocache?

i hope she loves it!

A couple of weeks ago Jonah came home with this jewelry order
from a boy in his class for the boys Mom…
 photo jorder1.jpg
Isn’t that so sweet?
We loved it and decided to have fun and make something for him to give her…
 photo jorder2.jpg
We will tuck the note in with the necklace so she knows,
I hope his Mom loves it!

If you are still in need of a Mother’s Day gift you can order from our ready-to-ship page,
just be sure to place your order by Monday!

We also have gift certificates,
let Mom pick out what she wants!

only MY child.

Last week the kids’ school picture proofs came in. I don’t love school pictures but I get them just to have them, they get tucked away in their memory boxes. Caleb, Tessa and Eden all took good pictures. Then I saw Jonah’s. I sent him to school in a spring-y plaid shirt- he looks good […]
