Hovis turned 1 on April 19th!

This time last year we had NO clue that in just over 3 weeks we would be bringing home a 4 week old Scarlet Macaw! LOL! Not only did Hovis turn 1 on April 19th but we also celebrated a year living in the fifth wheel! Any regrets? No! Sometimes we still have to pinch ourselves to ensure that we are indeed living this dream. None of us have any desire to go back to the farm although we definitely miss being... read more

(SO glad we delayed our trip a day and did not do this on Saturday!) Our first stop was Gull Point Drive, a place we had not visited previously. Here the kids ran along the water front and enjoyed some fresh air as did Hovis. We... read more

Yellowstone in the snow and rain.

5 photos in this post. Although we did change our plans and decide to stay on the eastern side of Yellowstone for an extra day, thus pushing all our other campsite bookings forward one day, we decided to head into Yellowstone today and explore the area from Fishing Bridge all the way up to Mammoth Springs. Having read an RV article sharing the realities of driving through Yellowstone with a big rig, the... read more
