youtubeHaving small children has brought me so much joy. When we had our second child one year ago we gladly welcomed all the baby snuggles, and adapted again to having a baby often on a hip. But with the fun of a small baby also comes night wakings and nursing. This meant less freedom for mom, me! For quite some time I’d had a two-day long project to work on with a friend who lived over two hours away. Instead of putting it off until my daughter was weaned, we used our trailer to our advantage. My husband, kids and I all headed to Arlington, WA with our RV to let mom get some work done. Bringing our trailer allowed me to come between work to help my husband with the kids and to nurse my daughter.

youtubeHey Happy Campers! I’m sure we’re all sick of hearing the word quarantine, but there’s no doubt about it, the quarantine has put a damper on our “camping life”. The campground or camp area closures, no non-essential traveling, and of course concerned friends and family. With some of that behind us, we were beyond excited to get out with our trailer.
