Our RV Home Tour: Come on in!

Since sharing with you all our family’s choice of living this year, I have gotten a ton of questions.  One of those is how do you live in such a small space with 5 people?!  Haha!  That’s what I thought too…. before we actually did it.  Believe me, it was a process to transition our family for this year of adventure!

weerv

So I did a little video for you all of our ‘little home on wheels’.  You are all officially invited to come visit. 🙂

You can view the video HERE on our travel blog….

 

 

 

 

Then come back and let me know what you thought!  Could you do live like that for a year?  Any great idea for our shoe situation?? 

Thanks for watching 🙂

Organic Cleaning

natural solutions organic cleaning products

 

Health isn’t just about what you put in your body, it’s about everything around you.

Did you know:

  • Over 90% of poison exposures happen at home?

 

  • Chlorine bleach is the #1 household chemical involved in poisoning?

 

  • Organic pollutants, found in many common cleaners and even air fresheners, are found at levels 2 – 5 times higher inside your home than out?

 

  • Common cleaners give off fumes that can potentially increase the risk of kids developing asthma, the most common chronic childhood disease.

 

  • 1 in 13 school-aged children has asthma. Rates in children under five has increased more than 160% from 1980 – 1994.

 

  • Children are highly vulnerable to chemical toxicants.

 

  • Your skin is your largest organ and the chemicals from you cleaners can be absorbed through your skin?

 

  • An average home generates over 25 pounds of toxic, hazardous waste each year. Much of this waste can be attributed to household cleaning products

 

  • The EPA says that only a fraction of the more than 81,000 registered chemicals have gone through testing for human health concerns.

 

  • A person who spends 15 minutes cleaning soap scum off a shower stall could inhale three times the acute exposure limit of some chemicals.

While you make your home cleaner, you can make your family healthier.

Why I use Organic Cleaning Products:

“I owned and operated a cleaning business for 10 years.  Prior to using organic products, I was getting daily headaches.

It honestly took me a little while to connect the dots between the chemicals in the cleaning products and my health issues.

Once I switched to the Get Clean product line, I noticed an immediate change for the better!

My headaches were gone, my allergy issues got better, I saved money AND they worked.”       ~ Claire

Super Soft, Shiny + Healthy Hair

Do you have dry hair or scalp?

Try this to get super soft, shiny + healthy hair.

I was noticing that mine was getting dry this winter and I needed to do something about it.  

I didn’t have the time or want to spend the money to go to the salon and get a treatment so I made my own and it turned out amazing!

 

I heard of coconut oil working like magic so I thought I would try it out.

I had coconut oil in the cupboard so I got it out and spooned some in my hand and started applying it all over my hair. 

I massaged it in and put it in a pony tail.

Then, I let it sit for about 30 min. and did the dishes while I waited.  I’m always multi-tasking.

After that, I took a shower and washed and conditioned it twice.

I could tell instantly that my hair was smoother.  I dried and styled my hair as usual and notice my hair was extremely soft, my scalp was not dry and my hair was shiny.

super soft hair

I’m actually really pleased with how it turned out and as a result will probably do this every couple of weeks during the winter because my hair feels so good!

Have you ever tried something like this?

Did you use coconut oil?

How did you like it?

Family Hike: Carlsbad Caverns

Our family loves to hike. 

Recently during our travels, we went to the famous Carlsbad Caverns located in

White’s City, New Mexico.

Here is a view of the natural entrance to the cave. 

cavern3

The cave is home to hundreds of thousands bats that fly out every sunset to find food.  Thankfully, we went when they had migrated to Mexico for the winter.  The boys, however, were disappointed.

IMG_1080[1]

This is Clark and I at the mouth of the cave.  It is a 1.2 mile long switchback trail to get down to the bottom.

IMG_1084[1]

You can see the start of the switchback trail here. It is not strenuous, just steep.  Our 9 year old was able to do it easily.  We also saw people of all ages on the trail.  However, if you have knee issues, etc. they do have an elevator that will take you down to the bottom if you need.

IMG_1085[1]

Most of the path was really open, but there were a few spots like this one.

IMG_1087[1]

Down at the bottom we toured the Big Room. 

It is one of the two self guided cave tours and is 1.5 miles long.  The path is flat and somewhat lit. 

We did bring a few flashlights that were helpful, but not necessary.

IMG_1096[1]

The view of the inside of the cave was incredible!  

Over time, moisture and water have created these stalagmites and stalactites.

It was breathtaking to view how nature had created this over time.

My best hiking tip is to bring water and wear good shoes.

Our boys each have a small Camelback so they can carry their own water.  This has worked super well for us and is definitely worth the cost if you hike several times a year.  They wear it as a back pack and it has a straw tube to drink from.  It eliminates water bottles (and mom carrying them).

IMG_1082[1]

{ the blue backpack is a Camelback }

We all loved the cave hike, especially the boys!  My youngest told hubby and I thank you for bringing him here twice.  He’s too cute. 

If you go, White’s Cave has an RV park, campground and hotel all located within 10 miles of the cave entrance.  The town also has a Water Park that looked super fun for kids (and adults, too) if you are there in season.

What about you?  Do you like to hike?  Do you hike with your kids?  Where have you been?
