Portland Storm Lots more driving today and lots more snow. We began the day with a great, warm breakfast with our new extended family and then warm goodbyes on a very cold, blizzardy morning. Within 5 minutes on the crazy Vancouver roads we were lost (all the roads look like country, residential roads that go on for miles). But real men can ask for directions! And my man is a real man! So we got heading to Portland and kind of wish we hadn't. The weather was terrible and getting worse. So we took it slow and made it safe and sound into Cali! Geoff and I had a fleeting thought about how dreamy it would be to make it through our whole trip without hitting McDonalds. Well, we made it one day. Oh, well. Geoff ... read more

Whew! Day 1 complete! We couldn’t have gotten out of our driveway and street without the help of the snow angels God sent us! PRAISE THE LORD! The kids helped get the icicles off Spirit and our good friend Mike snowplowed around the RV and driveway so we had a clear launch pad. Our first turn out of the driveway North and we got stuck in all the massive snow in the road. But Captain Geoff knew what to do! Back and forth, back and forth, back and forth… Then we hear from above the cab, “I can still see our house!” Yes, Kai. Thank you, we know. The wheels finally found good traction and we’re off!

We're almost ready to take off on our big adventure! Our fellow adventurers, the Kaedings, tell us we'll be following a coastal storm over the next few days. Did we say adventure - people!? The great thing is we'll all be one big happy family. The bad thing is I asked Geoff when he got the RV to please not take us on winter trips... Looking at the picture of Spirit (our motorhome is named "Spirit") you can see for yourself that it is indeed WINTER here! GOOD TIMES! :) Thanks for traveling along with us as we go in search of the warm sun and some family fun. We hope our blog connects you with our laughs and tears and draws you closer to Christ Jesus' heart. We love you and Jesus loves you most ... read more
