After four and a half months of van life, we have been through a lot. We have learned things about ourselves and each other, about our country and traveling. It has been an amazing journey and it is far from over! In fact, it is only half way over, in terms of distance, as we … Continue reading Half Way There
After Michigan, the next group of friends and family on our list were in the western parts of New York.

I was getting excited to introduce Brooke to some more of my family, a particularly hardcore half of the bloodline that we're very proud of. We dropped down the southern … Continue reading Yellowstone National Park

On a less serious note.... Missoula, Montana The past weekend was absolutely hellish for us.
