So last night with no heat. I slept in my fleece and a down vest and was fine. Perhaps this was aided by my cold meds. The kids had three or four blankets piled on, and we're fine. Poor Ty was loaded up with fleece, a beanie, and his coat with the hood up but… Continue reading Taupo NZ – Adventure Day 1

We left Thursday afternoon and returned early Monday morning. That… Continue reading Alaska to Hawaii for the weekend?

After another wonderfully uneventful flight we landed in Baltimore. They were way past 20 minutes on our luggage so Ty was thrilled. We requested our 2,500 miles… Continue reading Baltimore Maryland Spring Break ‘18 Part 2
