Badlands Road Trip

Let’s be Bad! We recently took a road trip from Texas up to Minnesota for my grandparents 70th wedding anniversary. Yes, I wrote that correctly… 70th! Since we were already going to be so far north we decided to make the most of it and what’s another 8 – 18 hours or driving when you’ve already…

Fall in Amsterdam

Tulip fields for days, flower markets, smoke filled cafes, beautiful street art, canals for days and delicious caramel between two crispy waffle cookies; Amsterdam in the fall was a dream come true. Photo by Tre Dunham Route before Amsterdam: Reykjavik to Amsterdam, Berg Castle, Black Forest Germany & Triberg, over to Alsace, France and castles in…

Road Trip with Mom

Have you figured out by now there is no method to the madness? Looking back over the past few years I have so many places to still post about sometimes I feel overwhelmed and don’t know where to start… or to stop. I guess the best thing to do it just keep going. So here…

The Bathroom Rennovation

“We don’t have a pool and if we want to take a sauna in Austin, TX we can just walk outside in the middle of summer!” We had quite an Epic year last year… full of travels and a few surprises. If you follow us on IG you know that we had a new buddy join…

Summer Mixtape

Were gearing up for a summer of lake hangs, road trips and backyard barbecues. Putting together my summer playlist is an ongoing event but here are few beats, and some oldies, I can’t seem to get away from so far. Electric Blue – Arcade Fire Love Like This – Wild Belle Lost Coastlines – Okkervil River…

Mount Rainier National Park

Did you know you can find snow in Paradise? After staying in Olympic National Park for a few days we headed over to Packwood and found this adorable AirBnB to make our home base for our stay at Mount Rainier National Park.

Hole in the Wall at Rialto Beach

This beach was awesome! I found a few photos of it on IG and knew it was a spot I wanted to check out while we were exploring the Olympic Park area. Thankfully it was on the side closest to the Hoh Rainforest so spent the afternoon here after a quick catnap in the car. Getting…

Olympic National Park

West Coast here we come! In Dec 2016 I went with my mom to St. Augustine, Florida for my cousins wedding and reconnected with her side of the family. It had been way too long and we spent the weekend hanging out, visiting, eating and celebrating. In particular it was really awesome to reconnect with…

Rocky Mountain National Park

Hello Mountains! Part three of our annual road trip last winter was a stop in Rocky Mountain National Park! The park has been on our todo list for years and after several failed attempts we made it! This was my first time visiting the park and Tre’s first time back after about 15 years. The most notable disaster was…

Grand Teton and Mormon Row

Part two of our winter adventure took us on another snow trek. While we were heading home from the family winter trip that took us to Big Sky and Yellowstone in the winter, we stopped by Grand Teton National Park and decided to hike our way to Mormon Row in the snow.  Mormon Row is…

Winter in Yellowstone National Park

What a year 2017 turned out to be. Last summer was pretty hectic with our news of being pregnant, travel plans to Seattle and the Olympic Northwest, a road trip from New Jersey to Texas and then another trip from Texas to Banff, Canada. (Blogs coming soon!) One of the highlights for us was that we…
