It’s hard to believe that we’ve already been on the road for one week and have driven more than 1,600 miles. As I type this, we’re in San Antonio after having spent a couple of days in Galveston. The kids are starting to enjoy checking out a new city every couple of days. I wish they’d put their iPads down […]

Postcards from…New Orleans

The one-hour guided tour at Mardi Gras World was a great way to learn more about the celebration and how the parade floats are made.

We left New Orleans yesterday morning after a couple of days of fun and a visit with family.

I’ve never been before, and really, I don’t know much about San Antonio beyond the scene from Pee-Wee’s Big Adventure when Pee-Wee takes a tour of The Alamo to see the basement and find his bicycle. I know, pretty sad, right? So, I’ve been doing a […]

I’ve been busy planning our cross-country road trip (we leave in less than two months) and I’m quickly creating a bucket list of sorts. It’s a good thing too since I’m mostly failing at my first-ever bucket list that I posted on January 1 (nope, not one item crossed off yet). If you’re thinking about a road trip, whether a […]
