On the Way to Green Bay

Two years ago the girls and I made our way up to Green Bay for the Packer’s Family Night. I have many fond memories of attending Packers games regularly when I lived here and I wanted to not only return myself, but also to give Z and E the chance to be inside Lambeau Field. […]

After a morning full of work we drove to green bay. It was a really busy day at the market. I worked for 5 hours of making change, selling produce, and standing. At 12:00 we left to go to Milwaukee. It was a 1 hour drive. Milwaukee has a really cute down town named Historic […]

The First Day

We worked so hard to get up to the 41st day and now we are back at the first. My whole family woke up at 6:00 so Zoe and I could go to the farmers market to work. It was my first day selling fruit and veggies. We set up. I put the fruit in […]

Brookfield to Green Bay

Well, we have been home for 12 straight days (except for a night at my parents’) and, quite frankly, it’s really boring. We wake up each morning and can’t tell the girls that we are going to climb a mountain, or white water raft, or camp, or stay at a Kimpton, or explore the desert. […]

White Water Rafting Pictures

We received a cd with pictures of us white water rafting in Idaho Springs. If you are looking for more pictures of us in wet suits and are interested in putting a face with the name Crawfish (our awesome guide who lives in his car, but loves his job!) check out the gallery. As a […]

Day 41: Home

I don’t know how to start this post. I’m actually teary eyed as I try to wrap my mind around the day. The last day. Probably one of the most boring of the 41. However, it seems the most emotional to me. And there were A LOT of emotional days. We woke up at 5:30, […]

Wake Me Up

I can’t believe that after 40 days on the road we’ll be home in less than 24 hours. We have a bunch of reflection type posts planned so I’m not going to do that now. I will say though that it has been an amazing six weeks. We are all so lucky to be able […]

Day 40: Vero Beach to Kimball, TN

We returned to the lovey suite at Vero Beach Hotel and Spa last night after dinner, full from a delicious meal, a little drunk from the bottle of wine and cocktails and beer throughout the day, and giddy from the loveliness of a fun evening filled with laughter. We discussed setting the alarms to an […]

Exit Interview

Favorite Kimpton? Ellie: Vero Beach because it was one of the biggest rooms. Zoe: The Sky Holel in Aspen because I liked the decor. Zak: That is like asking which child is my foavorite, but if forced to choose, I would go with the Angler’s in Miami Beach. We had an amazing suite and I […]

Day 39: Vero Beach

It was a rough night. The room adjacent to ours at the Tideline was occupied by a noisy bunch. Two couples, two whiney toddlers, a yippy dog. I read about 100 pages of my book between 11:30 and 1:00, not able to rest for more than a second. At 1:30 Zak went to the front […]
