Blessed are the curious for they shall have adventures.  


I LOVE to travel.  I’m so glad I found a partner that has the travel bug too.  Tim and I try and make an effort to travel as much as possible.  While adding to our family has slowed us down a bit, we still look forward to all the places we have yet to see!

January in Iowa - get us out of here! We loaded up the kids and headed to Orlando, Florida for a fun family vacation in the sun.  We stayed at a beautiful Hilton resort, had a magical day at Disney, relaxed by the pool and explored Sea World. We love having the opportunity to get away and enjoy quality time with family. 

The kids did amazing on the way over. Everyone survived the flight from Kansas City. I was thankfu...

We had a week full of sunshine, quality family time and plenty of ocean beach fun. Our first big family trip is one we'll always remember.  "Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory." We are thankful for the memories we made on this incredible trip. 

Madeleine had her first airplane ride. She did absolutely amazing! The people at Southwest went above and beyond to make her first fl...

Tim and I had the pleasure of spending the last weekend in Chicago with some of our dearest friends celebrating my sorority sister's wedding (Congrats Mary Pat and Calen!! Woo-Hoo, you did it!).  It was the perfect weekend for catching up.  While the weather wasn't perfect, we made the most of it by hitting up delicious brunch spots, and staying cozy inside with movies and episodes of Friends.  It reminded me of college, when...

We took a day trip to Nebraska this past weekend and visited the Omaha Henry Doorly Zoo.  It was AMAZING! Teddy had a blast and it was great to have some quality family time.

We started our day at the Petting Zoo.  Teddy loved chasing around the goats.  We took a train ride around the entire park on the Omaha Zoo Railroad.  Grab some popcorn and enjoy the ride!

They had a fun splash pad to cool off on a hot d...

I’m finally getting around to blogging about our trip last month to California.  We had an amazing time spending it with family and showing Teddy some of our favorite places around San Juan Capistrano.  While we had a great time – traveling with a baby is a lot different than when it was just the two of us.

First of all – checked baggage. Tons of it.  Look at all the stuff we brought for the three of us and a 4 day trip.
