This morning Lily and I woke up and went down to the hotel restaurant for breakfast. Lily loves pancakes. Luckily low tide was around 9:30 AM so we were able to look for more sea creatures. And the sun was finally coming out so it was nice and warm. We found lots of crab both […]

This morning Lily and I slept in a little bit and then checked out of our hotel and hit the road. Our first stop was Forks, WA because Lily is a big fan of the Twilight movies. While most of the movies were not actually filmed there that is where they are said to live. […]

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 […]

How come no one ever says “TGIT”? So we are in Denver and I totally planned ahead when I packed for this trip. Does anyone still remember that the Seattle Seahawks beat up the Denver Broncos in the Super Bowl this year? Yes, the answer is yes they do! I went into Starbucks this morning […]

This morning JP had meetings in the morning but a few hours to spare in the afternoon. Before he left this morning he asked what I wanted to do today. The marketing from the 80’s and 90’s must have worked because I asked him where Golden, CO is. He told me to look into it […]


This afternoon JP and I got on a flight to Denver, CO. Checking the weather before heading somewhere in the middle of April doesn’t seem necessary. Well… it is! This is a SnapChat that I sent. And this is what it looked like on our drive from Denver International Airport to the Hotel Monaco in […]

This morning JP and I got on a flight to Portland, OR. Just for the record noise canceling head phones are amazing. I don’t think I have ever told you guys this before but when they come around with snacks I always ask for pretzels instead of peanuts. I happened to have a bag of […]
