Someone asked our group of moms tonight, “If you had five healthy years to live, what would you do?” I was slightly surprised by the answers.
As we were driving to Tampa, FL we asked our YouTube subscribers if they had any RVs that they would like to see while we were there. We had a few requests and reviewed those on our YouTube Channel, but I’ll be posting them this week so stay tuned if you haven’t seen them yet! You never know what you might find that you may like! 🙂
Since the beginning of our fulltiming RV life, we’ve moved an average of every other month or so. We typically travel semi locally, with longer trips sprinkled throughout the year. We are currently heading “home” from our Christmastime travels that ranged from Disney World, Kennedy Space Center, Savannah, to Atlanta. We’ve been traveling for two weeks straight and I’ve noticed something. Even though our house is with us, we continue to use this term “home”.
“When we get home…”
“It’s time to pack up and head home.”
“How much longer until we get home?”
Some people ask us about some of the uncommon perks of fulltime RV life, so we decided to show one of ours in this video! There are many perks to fulltime life, but some are never even discussed. Do you ever wonder what it would be like to bring your RV with you on a date night? Or why someone would even do that? Join us as we show you one of the more uncommon perks of being a fulltime RV family!
Where is the weirdest place you’ve brought your RV??
We were out eating dinner when my mom called…twice. Once on my phone, then once on my husband’s. She never does that, unless it’s important. Someone fell, from somewhere high, is all I can gather from my husband’s phone call with her. For the life of me, I couldn’t figure out who would fit this description as I quietly tried to decode their phone conversation. It was my grandfather. My grandfather who is completely healthy and happily pushing over 80! The guy who could probably still beat me in an arm wrestling contest! He had a fractured L1 and L2, broken/fractured pelvis, and 6 broken ribs. He would need surgery to fix the hip/pelvis and recovery would be many, many months.
We hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving surrounded by those you love! This was our first Thanksgiving in our RV, which was such a relaxing and special time. Having lived in Florida for a few years now, and never going on the Buccaneer Pirate Cruise, we decided to join in on the fun! I highly recommend this if you’re ever near or around the Destin area! The crew was amazing, made sure all the kids were having fun, and even had such a positive and uplifting message to all the kids! It truly was a wonderful experience! We hope you enjoy this video, and as always like, comment, subscribe for more videos!
As I sit here rereading my daily notecards, I’m being reminded of what life was like two years ago. The fears, concerns, and worry I was experiencing. Not knowing just how this journey was going to affect me. Would I survive the surgery? Probably, even though that is always a fear going into any major surgery. Would it be cancer? What kind of battle lay ahead if it was? Was I strong enough to fight it? Would I survive it? Those were all unknowns. Unknowns I had to sit with for many months. If it wasn’t cancer, how would I heal? How would life change afterwards? Even though this was the best scenario, there were still so many unknowns. I was petrified. I was scared to my very core.
Sitting here in an all too familiar place watching my little 6 year old in his “big boy” gymnastics class has me contemplating life. By now you’re wondering what kind of gymnastics class this is to offer such insight, right?? I promise the class isn’t as intense as it sounds and neither is the gym. But back to why I started writing to begin with. Have you sat back and really observed a child? Really watched their behavior, their excitement, their joy for…well… everything? If not, I highly recommend unplugging completely for a bit and truly taking it in.
Man oh man, where do I begin! This was such an awesome experience! My son had been requesting his cousins for his birthday and being a traveling family, we just couldn’t come through for him. But little did he know, plans were in store for them all to be together shortly after! Continue reading
We had such a great time out at the farm! The kids ran around playing in the mud and climbing in the trees. We saw several new calves, listened to the coyotes howling while we enjoyed the campfire, and enjoyed riding around the pastures in the buggy! You just can’t beat a weekend with family with absolutely no agenda! 🙂
