Where to next?!

It’s been an unbelievable 2017! Our first year of RV life has definitely had it’s share of hard times but overall, all of the amazing memories we’ve made far outweighs the bad. It’s almost been a year since we moved into our RV full time. We’ve been to 9 new states and driven over 7,000 miles this year. Add home schooling our kids and building our photography/videography business to that year to our firsts this year! It’s been a whirlwind of a year so we are really looking forward to slowing down in 2018.

Because we don’t work too much in the winter, we are going to head out in January and begin the year with travel. Headed to SC, we’ll be staying near our brother in Atlanta so we have to add that to our trip. After SC, we’ll stay in Savannah, GA for a few days since I’ve always wanted to see that awesome town. We head north to Asheville, NC after that and get to visit some friends there. The rest of January, we’ll be in TN, visiting friends and family, checking out Nashville and Memphis. And then head through AR back to TX for just a few days of work. And then…who knows where we will be in February. Haven’t figured that part out yet. But that’s what I love about this lifestyle. We get to make that up as we go along, together as a family.

Seriously can’t wait to see what God has in store for us in 2018. This RV life is addicting and I am not sure if I can ever go back to a life without travel in it. I have too much I want to see and do. Hoping we get one more year in this RV before our kids outgrow it!

If you’ll be in any of those states in January, give us a shout. We love to connect with our traveling families!

 

Much love and rock on!

Us in Pictures

While we were in Destin, FL this summer, we had our pictures taken by the amazing Olive Gray Photography. If you are ever near her, do yourself a huge favor and get your session booked with her. She is a true artist!

My heart swells when I see us in pictures. We’ve come so far! It’s been tough raising three little humans at the same time. We not only survived, we thrived and are truly a tight unit that cannot be broken. We are better together than we are on our own and I love where our family is now. We’ve set our eyes on bigger things. Refocused what really matters in life and are seeing things through a different lens. These kids are going to be world changers and I love that we get to teach them and shape their youth so that they hopefully have amazingly positive memories that catapult them into young adults that shine bright in this world. I pray they always know who they are, what they stand for and the love we have for them. They’re pretty amazing little people and these pictures show our love off beautifully.

Go get your pictures taken by a professional, I promise you won’t regret it!

Rock on!

Days 53-63: DESTIN, FL!

Our favorite spot in the country. We are total beach people! I love any coastal area really but this water is just magical. The PNW was beautiful but it was hard just looking at the ocean and not getting in. This water is crystal clear, a light blue-green color that is just breathtaking and the softest white sand you’ll ever step on. It’s a place of healing for me, a landscape that just speaks to my soul and we all feel better after visiting. Not too many places you can say that about. That’s why it’s our favorite. We have so many memories of this place, these beaches along 30-A. We first visited when I was about 14 weeks pregnant with the triplets, just starting to really show and I had my 30th birthday there. This year, I celebrated my 40th birthday with some of my favorite people and it was the best! Hoping I get to celebrate my 50th there too!

Every family needs a spot that’s just theirs and always will be. We love going back to the same place every summer. It never gets old! I hope we can make it every year!

We stayed at Topsail Hill Preserve State Park in Santa Rosa Beach and it was awesome! Our site was huge and had a magnolia tree, a palm tree and pine trees all around it. The beach was usually always empty and the scenery around it spectacular.

We got to see family and we hung at the beach almost every day! Why wouldn’t you when the beach looks like this!?

 

My sweet daughter Annalise, accepted Jesus as her Savior early in the trip and wanted to be baptized by her Daddy in Destin so we did that one morning on our beach at the park. It was perfect in every way and a moment I’ll never forget and I know she won’t either.

We had our pics professionally take by the amazing Olive Gray Photography and I can’t wait to see all of them. She has shown me a few previews on my phone and I’m obsessed!   I can’t wait to share them!

The best news of the trip was Elijah’s cast was taken off and X-rays showed he was 100% healed and did not need another cast. So he was all about getting in the ocean and staying in the ocean. We would have to drag him out of it most days.

My beautiful kids belong in the water and just come alive in it. I love watching them at the beach and in the ocean, my little surfer babies!

 

It was so sad to leave. We spent 10 awesome days there and it was the best ending to our epic Lezonderlust summer. I still can’t believe we were at the most Northwest point of the continental US, saw Canada, then were so South that we saw Mexico from our window, all the way to the Gulf of Mexico in 65 days. It was a huge trip and I’m glad we did it but pretty sure we won’t be taking on such a huge trip in such a short amount of time ever again. We just missed so much. Next time, we will plan trips that allow us to stay longer.

Thanks for following along with us! We’ll continue to blog this year because we do have some trips planned. Disney is in November, December is full of work and travel and January we’ll be in FL. Who knows where we will be February and March! Stay tuned to find out!

We hope this has inspired others to get out there, explore, break out of the normal and live life to its fullest. Even though we aren’t traveling right now, it’s still our goal to live minimally, outside the box and spend as much time together with our family as we can. Life is so short and we are determined to live passionately, fully and expectantly, dreaming big and always looking for another adventure.

Love you all!

Rock on!

Days 46-52: Pensacola, FL

We drove through 2 states pretty quickly to get into FL. 4 states in 3 hours is a pretty awesome travel day! We camped at Big Lagoon State Park near Perdido Key and it was a really pretty park. Florida has some awesome state parks which they call “the real Florida”. It did rain a lot while we were there so that dampened our spirits a bit. But, when it wasn’t raining, we hit the beaches! Not as nice as Destin but hey, it’s still a Florida beach! The park was just beautiful and raw and I love all the natural areas they left. We didn’t go on any hikes because it was just so humid and stuffy outside. But I did get a lot of pics, most of Anna because we did a little mini-shoot one night when we had an awesome sunset. Sometimes you just have to be ready to do an epic photoshoot when you are the child of a photographer. 😉

We stayed a week, checked out Pensacola a bit. It was a fun week but we were itching to get to Destin because that was where we met up with family who we haven’t seen in 2 months! That’s a long time for us!

 

 

We got to see the Blue Angels practice too which was like a mini air show all for us!

We LOVE Florida! Any part of the state is good with us! We’ll be back to stay in Florida in January in hopes of getting out of the cold. We can’t wait!

Rock on!

Days 44 & 45: NOLA

We drove into Houston and boondocked in a Cracker Barrel parking lot for day 43 and then drove into NOLA! I’ve never been to NOLA and we stayed about 15 minutes away at Bayou Segnette State Park. Nice park on the bayou, not a lot of amenities. The pool they had was only open on the weekends so we couldn’t take advantage of that and the kids were bummed.

We did the French Quarter the next morning and it was really cool walking around that city. Loved the architecture, music and fun shops we found. And of course we loved the beignets!

We rode a street car for just a little bit (we didn’t know what we were doing so it was really short and at the end of the line). We ate at an awesome creole restaurant and then headed to one of the cool cemeteries. So cool seeing such old headstones!

 

Then, we went back to the RV for dinner and headed to our Gator tour. So fun driving through the swamp! Can’t believe there are people that live back there and drive in on the boats. No thanks!

 

We are huge Florida Gator fans so it was so cool being so close to gators. Go Gators! Chomp Chomp! Football starts soon and we are so excited!

Really liked NOLA, I’d like to go back sans kids! One day…

Rock on!
