Happy Saturday friends! As I sit here on a cloudy day, I’m reminiscing about our family vacation that we just got home from. 15 days out west exploring the beautiful National Parks of Yellowstone, Grand Tetons and Theodore Roosevelt.

We camped and had an amazing time, even when it came to smelling the stinky sulphur pits! We saw sooo many different animals, ranging from grizzly bears to wolves to golden eagles. It was an amazing trip and we really enjoyed ourselves.
p.s. this was our first vacation not tent camping (the kids have TENT camped in 38 states…so…yeah, lol). My amazing engineer hubby designed this cargo trailer to become our camper. I can honestly say, it is amazing how much more I enjoyed the trip having this little cutie patootie! For the first time, in all of our vacations, I wasn’t really ready to come home at the end!
Let me know in the comments if you’d like to see more photos of our camper and the process of building it out from a cargo trailer to a camper.

The kid’s bathroom has been an ongoing project that has included A LOT OF TILE!!! I’ve never put so many tiles in one room before, but I am totally in love with the bathroom and am so jealous of their bathroom compared to mine!
