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!

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)

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).

It’s Saturday, July 30, 2016, and we’re finally in our motorhome!

We’ve spent the last month purging our stuff so we could move out of the home we were renting in Ridgefield and into our motorhome.

And man, talk about a PROJECT!

It’s been a ton of work. And kudos to Lacie for bearing the brunt of the work. I’ve been busy with a couple big copywriting projects this last month so Lacie has been the one doing most of the “purging.”

After a lot of talking, planning and praying we finally decided to hit the road in our motorhome!

We’re coming to the end of our 1-year rental agreement here at David’s house in Ridgefield and we’re not ready to buy our first home yet. So we figured this would be a great opportunity to go on a cross-country RV adventure!

We just got back from a fun 3-night motorhome trip in Central Oregon! On Thursday we packed up the motorhome and drove to Crown Villa RV Resort in the south side of Bend (about 5 mins from where we used to live).

Here’s where we stayed the first night:
