Behind The Scenes

Behind the Scenes from JANUARY...
Selah and I cuddle on the couch/bench after a long day at the Rocket & Space Museum 
Yes, we spread "chicken poop" on our lips when they're chapped... big hit with the littles 
The kids play legos in the dark after arriving at Foscue Creek in Alabama, because of electrical issues at the new RV spot.
Aaron working with Selah with homeschooling.
Selah working on her math outside on a nice Alabama winter day. 
My first dinner in Florida after a long day on the road.
The kids playing their games in their loft 
Behind the scenes from FEBRURY...
So.  Hungry.
The kid's favorite attractions are ALWAYS the playgrounds.
Simon disappeared for a minute before I found his bike parked outside our neighbor's cool teardrop trailer in Mississippi...
He invited himself in...
And they took over this poor doggie's bed.
Blood splatter from Simon's bike accident
The kids pretending to make fire
Aaron making walking sticks from driftwood he found down by the lake in Texas
Simon enjoying my jams by the campfire

Behind the scenes from MARCH...
My morning view while Aaron was fixing something on the eyebrow window 
Loki's favorite spot, the garden window.
The sign I added to the back of the house so people can satisfy their curiosity
Loki's other favorite spot in the tiny house.
One day Selah brought home these mini bananas for me after grocery shopping with her daddy because she knows I love all things miniature.  :) 
Loki cuddling up in my bed. :)
I don't think I ever shared how we solved the eyebrow window privacy issue... with this neat window film we found at Meijer.
The kids learning about the center of mass with their Goldiblox toys 

Cuddle time happens often in the tiny house.
Behind the scenes in APRIL...
Food poisoning... fun times.
Dinner Breakfast at Cracker Barrel.  Thanks for the gift card Sinsabaughs! :) 
Simon throwing a temper tantrum in the middle of Canyon Road in Santa Fe
He's such a Momma's Boy (wearing my hat and sweatshirt)...
And she's such a Daddy's Girl. 
Aaron told the kids he wanted to take their picture, so this is what they did.
Same here.
Riding up to Pike's Peak we heard a "POP" from the backseat.  One of our chip bags popped from the air pressure change... my head felt similar.  
Aaron's always trying to snap a pic of me taking photos.

This is a photo after Selah threw a fit on top of Pike's Peak because we forgot to pack snow boots for her to play in the snow.  Her loyal brother promptly joined her in solidarity as they refused to explore the summit with us.
Some pretty light beams shooting through the portholes one morning
Selah playing superhero and pretending to shoot light beams from her hands
The day before this it was 70 degrees F.  Colorado.
Sometimes the kiddies sneak into our bed in the middle of the night.  
Just a normal morning eating cereal
So there you have it, all the outtakes since January. :)

Colorado, Part 2

Today we left Riverside RV park in Loveland, CO.  While there we had zero cell reception, so that was a bit of a challenge.  You don't realize how much you use your cell phone until you don't get to use it anymore!  Loveland is a short (and gorgeous) drive through Roosevelt National Forest and Estes Park to Rocky Mountain National Park.  This is where we had a picnic once we arrived:

Not bad, huh?  Probably the most scenic picnic I've had in a while.  We spent the day exploring the park and soaking in all the beauty.

I'm thinking about getting this one printed to hang on my wall...

On our walk I mentioned that it looked like an animal should be hanging out down there... so, there goes my family...

We hope this little girl remembers this trip forever.  

 Aaron and I call this the "Hansel and Gretel"...

We then went up in elevation to Bear Lake:

Nice lake...

On our way out of the park, we had to stop for a gang of elk crossing the road:

While in Colorado we've seen a bunch of elk on numerous occasions.  Here are some young elk we came across:

This will probably be our last National Park sign for a while, more on that soon...
