Sierra Discovery Trail – Nevada City, California

We drove up to the snowy mountains on Thursday (1/09/20) in the Jeep. It was fun to drive without worrying too much about the road conditions.

E recently replaced the mud tires that … Continue reading Sierra Discovery Trail – Nevada City, California

Black Swan Trail – Smartsville, California

We needed to get out of the house this afternoon, and a quick Google search led us to Black Swan Trail.

Miyagi Ramen 🍜 – Bend, Oregon

We visited Miyagi Ramen in Bend Oregon for lunch on two different days during our visit. The kiddos got free ninja headbands with a symbol that means "certain victory". To start, we ordered these Japanese buns with tempura mushrooms and plum and sriracha sauces on the side. We all got super-delicious ramen. I don't think … Continue reading Miyagi Ramen 🍜 – Bend, Oregon

I saw all of this on a 1/2 mile walk to the park with my husband, my kiddos, and my parents last Sabbath. What if I had driven the car instead?... I would have missed everything... I hope you are able to enjoy a walk with someone you love ❤️ today!

Curt Gowdy State Park – Wyoming

Wyoming is high prairie with rolling hills of tall grass that ripple in the wind. It looks like something from a Laura Ingalls Wilder Book. We have actually seen antelope playing in Wyoming but I didn't get a photo yet... maybe we will see more next week... 🎶 "Oh give me a home, where the … Continue reading Curt Gowdy State Park – Wyoming
