Catch up with the Kenya Series: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 Besides rhinos, Lake Nakuru is also famous for tree-climbing lions. When Jordan read this from the guide book, it sounded like a myth. Lions don't climb trees, it's an important part ...

December was a busy month as we were lucky enough to travel to Amman, Jordan to spend the holidays with Jordan's family. We had a great and festive time being with family and eating both Christmas food and Jordanian food. Can't ask for much more ...

I recently finished up a new paper pocket album, with photos from the 2 years we lived in Korea. It was enjoyable and a little bittersweet to go back and revisit these photos. Korea for some reason is the only place I actually get homesick for, and lookin ...

Summer Road Trip: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5 Once in Minnesota we had to decide on the route home. Because of family, we are quite familiar with the route between Oregon and Minnesota. But the thrill of the road won out, and our desire to get ...

Summer Road Trip: Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4 Tennessee was the main destination for us on the trip, the impetus for going on the road at all. Jordan's youngest brother graduated from Union University, and we wanted to be there to join in the fest ...

See the first part of the trip here. On our way out of California we drove through Death Valley, the only national park we visited where the ranger urged us to stay in the car and not wander around too much. Summer was apparently in full swing. By the tim ...

Jordan and I are just back from a decently epic road trip around the US. The trip came upon us as a kind of surprise, we had been planning to drive to Tennessee for the graduation of Jordan's brother, but time got away from us and suddenly we had to ...

Both Jordan and I love riding on the train. Often, the train trip has been a highlight of our travels in the past. If you have the time, there's nothing better than the view out the window as you watch the terrain change as you travel from one place ...

I love being able to mix the pocket pages with some regular style layouts. It takes the pressure off trying to make layouts for all the pictures from a trip, and lets me focus on the photos I most want to scrap. Also, it's just so much easier to incl ...

In May we had a great chance to go with some friends to Victoria, Canada. I had never been to Canada, and I'd been real keen to go, so I was quite excited about this opportunity. Plus, the more I heard about Victoria, the more it sounded like my kind ...

On Monday I mentioned that I had realized I didn't have a proper travel bundle. What ultimately prompted me to remedy this was the decision to make my parents a photo book for Christmas. If you've been reading this blog or been around the site f ...
