RB40’s Driving Style

driving style

This week, we’re down in San Jose, CA to visit family & friends, so I don’t have much time to write and research. Today, I want to share some observations during our road trip with you. First of all, Google maps estimated our drive time to be about 10 hours. However, it took us a grueling 14 hours to drive down from Portland. RB40 junior woke me up at 3 am the day we were driving down and I couldn’t go back to sleep. So I decided to just get going. We left our home at 5 am sharp. I […]

Kids Fun and Trouble

Hectic Summer Days

hectic summer days fun

Wow, this summer has been so hectic. I guess the last few summers have been a little slower because our kid was just a baby/toddler and we didn’t overload ourselves with activities. Now that Jr. is 3 year old, we are doing a lot more fun stuff, but it’s exhausting! Last year, he took afternoon naps so at least we’d have that little break in the middle of the day. Now, he gets up at 7 am and can’t fall asleep until about 9 pm. He’d say, “But it’s not dark yet” and refuse to go to bed… Hectic month […]
