Time Sure Flies!

To catch up, after we visited homebase for a couple weeks (back in January) we made our way west to Mississippi, visited awesome new friends in Louisiana (one of which taught me some cool soap making tricks and spoiled me with soap goodies! We then made our way to Texas and hubby found the man that brought him into the world. This wonderful man is 101 years young and still going strong. He and his wife are one of the sweetest couples you could ever meet. Also in Texas, we met another soap making friend, and swapped more soap goodies, haha.

After Texas we showed the kids the house my family lived in in New Mexico as I was growing up, had fun sliding down the dunes of White Sands, visited old friends, and got to explore Carlsbad Caverns (another childhood experience I had that we got to share with the kids). We spent some time visiting new friends in Arizona and explored the area (more about that later!) then headed to Mexico for a weekend which was a blast, the food and view was amazing!

On to California! So much in California, lol. We then made our way up to Oregon, Washington (more on this later as well), then Idaho. We were just in Yellowstone and are now waiting to observe the solar eclipse, we’re so excited!

More updates to come, lots of catching up to do!

Author: The Rutherford Adventures

Hi! I'm Amanda, a wife, caregiver to my Parkie hubby, homeschooling mom of three and recently have become a soap making enthusiast. My hubby and I have had many an adventure over the years, our most recent being homesteaders in a small rural area of Alabama. We currently have chickens, a dairy goat we've lovingly named Georgia, three young Hereford pigs, a livestock guardian named Snow whom our children adore and two spoiled cats named Felix and Emma. Soon, we plan on embarking on our biggest adventure to date, an extended cross country trip around the United States. Our longest trip was a two week trip to New York and Canada and I thought that was long! So, thank you in advance for visiting my blog, my first by the way! I hope I have something to offer to my readers. Happy reading!
