Summer Cross Country Road Trip June 12th-Aug 15, 2017

This summer we hit the road just after school let out. The plan was to stay within Ca. for a bit, then head to the east coast, wallow around Nantucket for 4 weeks, hit Wy for the eclipse, then floor it home just in time to get the big kid to her sophomore year on […]

Nantucket Summer Favorites on the to-do list

Nantucket is a wonderful place to spend time. We were lucky to spend 3 weeks there in July and Aug. To have that much time to vacation in one spot allows for a bit of a deeper dig. The following make up a list of places and afternoons that we loved. – Fat Ladies Beach. […]

Colorado

Now I remember why we left Laramie on July 3rd; 2 words: Genius Bar appointment in Boulder Colorado, ok 7 words.

Laramie

June 27 we left Moab and the 105 degree heat for Laramie Wyoming to see Alison and Bob. We booked it through Colorado in one day – not necessarily recommended – thinking we’d see more of it on the way back through on our way to Texas and Rebecca’s mum. Although they had yet to even […]
