May Recap Via Instagram

I realize that we are more than halfway through June, but I have been doing these recaps since January and I really want to continue them. Like I said before, the WiFi gods were not very nice to me on our trip, and we were high in the Sierra Nevada's {aka no cell service for MILES} at the end of May so I couldn't share my May recap with you then...so you are getting to see it now:) Plus there is a little sneak peak of the first few days of our trip! We are having VBS at church this week which means it may take me even longer to get our trip photos edited...but I will share them soon I promise!

Henry has a fun chocolate day at school.
 The boys got much needed haircuts.
 I worked on our menu for our first test run with the Airstream.
 We headed to Dauphin Island for the weekend.
 Our first time camping in the Airstream!
 We had yummy {and expensive} snow cones.
 I worked on teacher gifts for Teacher Appreciation Week.

 All my boys made me breakfast for Mother's Day!
 We spent most of our time working on the Airstream! I added this fun chalkboard to the wall in the kitchen area:)
 We had a backyard campfire with some friends.
 I tried the Doritos taco for the first time...not too bad!
 I made cute Airstream shirts of the boys....
 ...and I made a padded camera bag for me.
 Eli forgot to put on shoes, so we had to buy him a pair of flip flops at Walmart:)
 I baked cookies for our trip and put them in my map covered cookie tubes.
 I packed lots of snacks for the boys.
Day one of our roadtrip!
 We drove through Texas....
 ...and into New Mexico for the first time ever!
 We walked to the bottom of Carlsbad Caverns...
 ...and strolled the streets of Roswell:)
 Then we had a blast playing at White Sands National Monument!
 We had a small mishap with the brakes which meant an hour or two in the parking lot of Auto Zone.
 I ate yummy green chiles on my breakfast burrito.
 We crossed into Arizona!
 Setting up camp at the Grand Canyon.
 First Grand Canyon photo op...say cheese!
 I did laundry for the first time on our trip.
 We had a few close encounters with the wildlife!

Roadtrip Ready Round-Up

First I want to say THANK YOU to all my amazing blog friends who helped out with this series! You all shared some amazing ideas! I hope that everyone enjoyed all of the posts in my Roadtrip Ready series. I can honestly say that we used a ton of these ideas on our roadtrip and they really did make the trip better! My boys LOVED the Travel Snack Boxes and the Roadtrip Countdown:) I got a ton of complements on their cute Roadtrip T-shirts, and my camera managed to make it home safely thanks to my Padded Camera Bag! Anyway, I thought it would be fun to do a little round up with all the posts from the series so that the next time you are planning a roadtrip, it will be easy to find all these great ideas in one place!

We're Back!

So we made it back from our big roadtrip! You know how you usually need a vacation after your vacation...yeah with a roadtrip that long I think I may need two vacations to get back to normal! I have spent the last two days doing {loads &loads of} laundry and napping. I think maybe the whole being on Pacific time for more than a week has really messed with my sleeping patterns...and the fact that we stayed up late and got up early almost every day of trip may have something to do with it too.

I have lots of pictures to share, but I need to go through and pick out the best ones before I just start uploading a million and one pictures. I had intended to blog some while we were gone, but the wifi gods weren't very nice to me....and apparently it can be difficult to get an internet connection with your phone when you are 8000 feet above sea level:) I had planned to do a little round up of all the great Roadtrip Ready posts from May, so that post may come sooner than my vacation post. And I also wanted to keep up with my monthly Instagram Recap posts {if you follow me on Instagram {@supermom_kelli} then you have already seen a TON of our trip}, but that didn't happen while we were gone so my May recap post will hopefully be up soon too....and eventually I will get around to posting about our trip!

Until then here's a quick picture of the boys by the camper at our campsite at the Grand Canyon:
