Learning about Bible translator/missionary transportation at JAARS!

While we were in North Carolina, we really wanted to go to the JAARS headquarters.  JAARS is an acronym for Jungle Aviation and Radio Services, and JAARS is affiliated with Wycliffe Bible Translators, who we visited while we were in Orlando (if you haven’t read about our wonderful Wycliffe experience, you can go to that […]

Getting our ‘ Eastern Pioneer’ fix…

…which is much different than a Western Pioneer fix!  😉     While we were family camping at Tanglewood RV park, we were located nice and close to Winston-Salem; this gave us a great chance to explore the area!  We drove in one day to see their downtown area.  Our first stop before heading to Old […]

Towards the end of March, we spent 2 weeks in North Carolina while Vaughn and the 3 oldest (with us) were volunteering with Samaritan’s Purse ice storm cleanup efforts. We were camping near High Point, NC, which is located between, and just south of Greensboro and Winston-Salem, North Carolina.  High Point is known as the […]

International Civil Rights Center & Museum, Greensboro, NC…

The littles and I were able to do so many fun things during our visit to North Carolina!  One of the destinations that I really wanted to go to was the International Civil Rights Museum.  This stop was a lot different than the others as it wasn’t really a ‘fun’ field trip.  While I had […]

Guilford Courthouse National Battlefield, Greensboro, NC…

Just up the road from the Greensboro Science Center, is the Guilford Courthouse National Battlefield; the location of a Revolutionary War battle on March 15, 1781. While there is nothing left of the small courthouse that once stood on the grounds, the acreage where a decisive battle between the British and the Americans once raged […]

Greensboro Science Center – check out their new Sciquarium!!!

This past week the kids and I went to the Greensboro Science Center – which happens to be a museum, zoo, and aquarium, all wrapped up in one great destination!  The museum covers all sorts of topics, and does so through a variety of different types of exhibits!  They have recently completed a major addition […]

Fun at the Greensboro Children’s Museum…

We’ve been enjoying our stay in North Carolina very much!  Now that the ice has melted, the kids and I have been getting out and about while the others have been volunteering with ice storm cleanup.  I’ve been trying to get the work crew to bring me home some decent pictures to post, but they’ve […]

The Greensboro Historical Museum, NC…

After wrapping up our visit to Georgia, we pulled out last Sunday.  We overnighted in Charlotte; we tried to park in the Bass Pro Shops parking lot but since this one is part of a mall, we were asked to leave by an external security company (they were super nice about it!).   We went […]

Blue Ridge Parkway…

TN-130-300x199

While we were in South Carolina, the guys had some fun with the local water vines… The other fulltime family dad that we were camping with had told Vaughn how he grew up swinging on water vines in forests just like this one.  When the guys were out mushroom hunting, they started looking around at all […]

Yay for family friendly campgrounds on the east coast

When we left Myrtle Beach, we weren’t really sure where our next stop would be. We drove north… through the rest of South Carolina and into North Carolina and nearly all the way through North Carolina, until we reached Medoc Mountain State Park (NC)… We pulled in, and the kids said – this feels like […]
