Back in Tok, Alaska, we were told by our hosts about a family who had done a round-the-world trip with their two children, and wrote a book about it.
Then, as we were preparing to travel to Santa Cruz, we met with some friends in Utah, and they mentioned this family again, and that they lived in the area we were going to be visiting.
Cool. We better meet up with them.
So after staying in Santa Cruz, we arranged to meet up with this awesome family.
Via email, they invited us to their home, offered us their basement, half their fridge, laundry, showers and a place to stay as long as we want.
This awesome family took a year off when their children were 8 and 11. Together they traveled around the world and explored Europe, Asia, Africa, Central and South America.
Incredible adventures, amazing stories. Inspirational tale.
We had so much fun!
There was a slide from the main level into the basement
Rings for cool tricks
A zipline (kind of)
A rope bridge
Oh, and a Wii
There was lots of stuff for crafts
Atlas practiced his crawling and eating
Then our hostess helped the girls bake and decorate some cakes.
They had a blast!!
The adults had a fantastic time also, hearing about all their amazing travel stories and viewing their pictures from around the world.
I wish we could have stayed longer! Thanks Highams, for a great time.
