Yellowstone National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 13.

Yellowstone National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 13.

Another day in Yellowstone National Park! This was one of the more action packed days we had on this trip. We visited the Grand Canyon of Yellowstone, drove the Grand Loop Road, and cooked dinner on the side of the road. Literally. Good thing my […]

Grand Teton National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 12.

Grand Teton National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 12.

It’s Paintbrush Canyon Sister Hike Day! Or more appropriately: the day Kirsten wanted to throw us off a mountain. I love hiking with the kids (mostly), but it is definitely slow and can get annoying pulling out snacks every 3 minutes. I was super pumped […]

Yellowstone National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 11.

Yellowstone National Park. Epic Road Trip. Day 11.

First day in Yellowstone! Our first day in yellowstone we drove up to see Old Faithful. It’s a totally original idea and we weren’t joined by 10,000 other impatient tourists. Driving into Yellowstone totally blew me away. I realize that it probably sounds strange but […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 10.

Our first morning here in Colter Bay was a bit a gloomy, but we managed to find a little adventure anyways. It was our first full day in the Tetons, so we relaxed and wandered the trails around our cabin area. We played in the […]

Grand Teton National Park – Don’t get eaten by a Grizzly.

We made it to Grand Teton National Park and didn’t get eaten by a bear! We first headed into Jackson, WY (day 8) and on day 9 we drove into Grand Teton National Park.    Day 8 of our Epic Road Trip: Lots of driving. […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 7.

We started our last day in Rocky Mountain National Park by being ‘those people”. My husband was slightly embarrassed and my kids were annoyed but we did manage to get one semi decent iconic photo with the park sign. Our plan for the day was […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 6.

Well today was as close to perfect as it gets when traveling with small children. Somedays it all goes to crap, but then you have those days when the sun is shining and you are just living your best life. Today was a good one. […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 5.

Jake is here! I am so happy to have some adult conversation again! The girls are pretty excited as well. We woke up super early to pick up Jake, his flight landed at 7:15am. The drive was so beautiful with the sun coming up through […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 4.

We finally made it to the mountains! I can’t even tell you. Finally. We only spent 4 hours in the car today, and it was broken up in small chunks here and there. It was practically luxurious. When I told Liv that we didn’t have […]

Epic Road Trip. Day 2 & 3

Driving. Driving for miles. We’ve covered approx 1200 miles so far. Driving hasn’t been too bad, I’m just done with it at this point. That’s fine because we are just outside of Denver and tomorrow should actually be less driving and more exploring. Praise be. […]
