We arrived safely home after a 17-hr car ride from Niagara Falls back to Apex, NC. Going through customs took a bit longer, but the kids were less nervous. We spent time doing our last devotional together, reading, watching movies, and reflecting on our journey. TreasuresWhen we are on the road, we cook in Alice,… Continue reading Wrapping it Up
We arrived after a long drive day, stopping overnight in Rochester, NY. Awaking to rain, we headed out early towards Niagara Falls. We pulled over in a severe thunderstorm, thankful to wait it out off the highway. We crossed Rainbow Bridge and went through customs.

I know, if you… Continue reading Boston Adventures

Parts of the campground were still closed, but our site wasn't impacted. We backed up to a cornfield and it was a beautiful view. The campground is… Continue reading The Sweetest Place on Earth
Ever since our adventure last summer, we have spent the last year being thankful for the memories we made, and realizing how they helped to shape us.
