A Red Lipstick Kind of Life

Whirlwind trip!

Definition of Adventure: 1. an exciting or very unusual experience. 2. participation in exciting undertakings or enterprises: the spirit of adventure. 3. a bold, usually risky undertaking; hazardous action of uncertain outcome.

A couple of weeks ago, I decided to take a spontaneous whirlwind trip from Colorado (home) to Florida, then Georgia, then Ohio, then home. It was just the kids and I! Have I mentioned that my kids are ROCK STARS!? They are the world’s best little travelers!

4300 miles in 9 days, it was crazy, it was fun, it was exhausting, and we cannot wait to do it again!

We went swimming and did a zip-line tour with my mom in Florida…

Reese, one of my little fish.
Everyone is ready to go! Brianna, Summer, Triston, Brennen, Instructor Guy, and Reese (from left to right) They rocked it out!

We met my sister in Georgia, so she could meet family…

Me, Aunt Jayne, and my sister, Billy (from left to right).

I will have to tell you all about my newly found family in Georgia another time, I am making a mental note to do that, it IS an incredible story.

THEN, we surprised my mother in law in Ohio…

My sister in law, Jen, hugging Triston. She was SO surprised!
This trip, my friends was quite the adventure! I am so glad we did it. I want my kids to know what adventure is really about: spontaneity, fun, surprise, relationship, risk, and chance. It’s a RED LIPSTICK kind of life!
