Moving to Texas!

So after saying our goodbyes last night (which was not fun!) we hit the road this morning to Texas. We woke up early today and finished packing the last few things into the U-Pack trailer and our two vehicles before heading out. We decided to take the route down through California, Arizona and New Mexico.

RV Trip To Texas

Pit stop in Moab on our way to Texas.

On Thursday, November 4th, we listed our home for sale and then headed south. We had to get our motorhome down to Texas and wanted to do it before the weather got too bad. Plus, Lacie didn’t want to stress about keeping the home clean for showings — and with four kids that’s nearly impossible if we’re living there.

Snowboarding Trip To Tamarack

We took a week-long vacation to Tamarack this winter and had so much fun. My sister works at the resort there so we got to hang out with her, so that was cool. Plus, our friends Mikael and Hannah came out for a few nights and stayed at the chalet with us so that was fun too. I blogged a little about each day below.

Camping at Battle Ground Lake

Last night I decided to go for a hike around Battle Ground Lake. During my walk I scouted out the RV sites. I found a couple open ones and then called Lacie to see if she wanted to take the RV out and go camping!

She said yes. So I drove to town to get some food and snacks for the kids and then went home and helped her load up the motorhome. We got there just before dark and set up camp. The kids loved it!

Spontaneous Trip to Pacific City

We got our RV detailed yesterday and after seeing it all cleaned up today it made us want to take it camping! Especially after realizing we had a couple sunny days in the forecast.

So after the guys finished doing their detail work, Lacie and Loretta packed up the RV while I finished my work. I had a 45-minute call with a client about a potential new partnership, which went well.

Emma’s First Snowboarding Trip

We went to a cabin on Mt. Hood for a few days with our family, Loretta, Gunner, Chloe, Ben, Daniel, Sarah and Jake. It was so fun and I plan to post pictures of the cabin soon. But what I’m most excited about is how awesome Emma did on her first snowboard trip!

Here’s how it went…

Date Night in Coronado!

Front of Hotel Del when we arrived.

Logan and Danielle watched the kids tonight so we could go on a date!

We left the RV Park around 4:30 and then went to Nordstrom Rack so Lacie could do some shopping. I found a cool laptop backpack while I was there. 

Then we drove to the surprise dinner place… Hotel Del Coronado! Someone told me this was “the place” to go for a nice dinner. And they were right. It was pretty awesome. 

The food was amazing and the view was beautiful. And Lacie looked gorgeous!

Our Trip from Yacolt to San Diego (1,100 Miles. 5 Days. 3 Kids)

View of Mt Shasta from where our tire blew out on I-5

On Saturday, Aug. 27 we packed up our RV, left Yacolt, WA  and decided to see how far south we could make it on Day #1 of our big trip.

We ended up driving 155 miles (about 3 hours) and stopped at Deerwood RV Park in Eugene, OR.

When I told Emma, my co-pilot in the RV, we were in Eugene she asked, “We’re going to Flynn Ryder’s place!?” (Flynn Ryder aka Eugene Fitzherbert from Tangled).
