Albuquerque Balloon Fiesta

On a whim, about 8 months ago we booked a hotel room in Albuquerque in case we decided to go to the ballon festival. It’s long been on my bucket list as a place to take the kids before they are grown up. As the day approaches we solidified our plans and decided to go…

Hebgen Lake

The Owens knew we were going to be in Idaho, only about 30 min from their cabin in Montana.  They invited us to come spend the day with them after our family reunion was over.  And we’re so glad they did!  We had such a fun time learning their family history, seeing the old family…

Edinburgh

Our day in Edinburgh was a little bit meh. Except for these Kelpie statues that Rusty really lovesI think we were coming down from our Glencoe high. We woke up to some pretty bad news about TapInfluence being acquired by Izea. This was a huge blow that came from left field. We had no idea…

Glencoe and Hidden Valley

We slept in and ate breakfast at our cabin. Then we went to explore! We found the spot where Hagrid’s hut was filmed and we took a little hike up to Signal Rock. Josh discovered these tiny little frogs hopping all over the trail and they were the hit of the hike! We all wished we…
