My friend Nicole recently moved up to Lake Travis outside of Austin. I didn’t have anything to do today so Selena and I drove up there to visit for the day. On our way up I checked my RoadsideAmerica app and found something called Dead Man’s Hole.  I found this tidbit online: “Dead Man’s Hole, […]


We dropped Lily off at Prude Ranch Summer Camp today. The first thing we noticed as we were pulling up as this historical marker. The marker says “Andrew Prude purchased three sections of land here in 1897 from J. F. Taylor, and established the A. G. Prude Ranch. Soon he moved his wife Ora to […]


This morning we packed up the truck and headed from San Antonio to Fort Davis. Tomorrow we are dropping Lily off for a week at horse camp. We’ve driven through west Texas a few times but we have never really stopped and it has never been a destination until today. We were not really sure […]

This morning we woke up in West Virginia and headed out for the last leg of our road trip. We drove through Ohio. Other than stopping for lunch and once for gas we didn’t really do anything but drive. Oh I did see this sign on the wall in the restaurant. Then we made it […]

This morning we woke up bright and early and drove all the way from Little Rock, AR to San Antonio, TX. We stopped at the Arkansas/Texas border to get this picture. About two years ago we stopped at the same spot. Look how much bigger Lily is. About 30 miles north of Austin there is […]


Little Rock! Nope… I am not talking about the Reba McEntire song I am talking about the capital of Arkansas. Our plan this morning was to wake up bright and early and drive all the way back to San Antonio. But when my alarm went off at 5:00 AM I turned it off. At that […]

This week is Lily’s Spring Break. We originally had plans to head to Cannon Beach, OR to hang out with JP’s parents for a few days but those plans fell through due to the price of tickets. SWA wanted about $900 per person… ummm, no thanks. Then JP found out a few days later that […]

After having a silly warm day yesterday and looking at the forecast for the Gulf of Mexico can you guess what we did today? That’s right we woke up and packed for the beach. This is the our first trip to the Gulf this year and also the earliest in the year that we have […]

Today I ventured over the river to the east side of Portland to check out something that I found on the RoadsideAmerica app on my iPhone. Here is what they say about it on RoadsideAmerica (to see the full website click here). A museum of toys. It has to be all candy-sweet charm and rainbow-colored […]

On our way from St Louis to Nashville yesterday we saw a sign for a town named Metropolis. Yes… there is a town named Metropolis so we had to stop. The first thing I noticed is that the population of Metropolis has declined. But we were able to see Superman. And Clark Kent and Lois […]

This morning we woke up in downtown Denver. When I woke up I was so thirsty… sure I drank a bunch of beer last night, but this was different. I was THIRSTY!! I knew this elevation thing was gonna make me this way, and I thought I had prepared for it the day before by […]


A: When you are talking about the military. When we were in Port Townsend we had a little bit of time to kill until we had to be back at the ferry dock so we decided to go take a look at Fort Worden State Park. I have been there one other time when I […]


In my opinion one of the absolute best things to do in Washington is to go to the Olympic Game Farm. I have been there a bunch of times through the years and I am never disapointed. Most people go to the Olympic Peninsula to go to the Olympic National Forest or to see the town of Forks, […]


We had a huge day today! We took almost 500 pictures and did lots and lots of stuff so I have to break up the postings a little bit so I can talk about everything so bear with me! We left the house around 7:00am to catch the 8:45 sailing at the Coupeville Ferry Dock. […]


Did you know that one of the nicknames for Seattle is The Emerald City? I believe the reason it is called that is because of the lush green trees. I lived in Seattle for 10+ years and I am still in awe of how big and tall the trees are. When Lily and I woke […]


As I was laying in bed thinking about what to do today I decided I wanted to go on an adventure. I grabbed my laptop and went to www.roadsideamerica.com to plan a day trip. I picked four odd roadside attractions in and around San Antonio and mapped them out. Our total trip was to 72 miles round […]


After breakfast Me, Vanessa, Lily, Isabel and Sofia headed out for a little trip to Hell. I downloaded a pretty cool iPhone app named Roadside America. The app locates me on the map and tells me what strange and offbeat things that are near by. The first place we stopped was The Shoe Tree which was about 5 […]


Today after work we packed up the truck and headed to the beach. Door to door it is exactly 180 miles from our house to the Holiday Inn Sunspree which is located right on the Gulf of Mexico. For those of you that don’t know here is a little geography lesson. Point A is San Antonio […]


JP has taught me a lot of things over the past few years. One of the most valuable things I have learned from him is about saving pictures. As you guys know I take pictures every single day. And pretty much every single day I upload them to my computer and then shoot them up […]


As you can see I am all packed and ready for our trip to the beach. Only one final detail… where the #*%+€ is JP?


This is what I did today!
