Modest girl swimsuits….

I receive a lot of compliments on our girls’ modest swimsuits. It’s not that they are extra special, or necessarily made of an adorable fabric, it’s that they are modest girl swimsuits.  There is something charming about seeing little girls dressed like little girls…cute, feminine, and modest. But mostly modest. Why is it fashionable for […]

USS Lexington & multi-generational travel!

We love being Winter Texans! We have been doing it long enough that we have favorite haunts that we take the kids to, and favorite areas that we like to visit every single year. This year we are getting to delve a bit into new territory, and rediscover some of these favorite places, like the USS […]

Big Time RV reality show-the Travel Channel…

Big Time RV… Earlier this year, we were featured in an episode of Big Time RV that aired on the Travel Channel.  We really enjoyed filming the footage last year, and it was fun to finally see the finished product!  We ended up being able to watch it, when it was first aired, at an […]

Introducing the Witte Museum (ASTC), San Antonio, TX…

One of the things that we love about traveling is all the opportunities that it gives us to learn about our country and its history!  One of the ways that we do that is to visit museums throughout the country, especially museums that focus on local history. The Witte Museum in downtown San Antonio, TX is […]

Vermilionville; learning living history in the heart of Lafayette, Louisiana

Rvers don’t homeschool, they roadschool.  And by definition, ROADschooling means you have to hit the road! (ok, there isn’t really a REAL definition of roadschooling. 😉 )  We LOVE living history sites, so we are always on the lookout for them while we are traveling.  A favorite of ours is located in Lafayette, Louisiana; Vermilionville is […]

NOLA – Audubon Insectarium & Butterfly Garden!

The Tribe hasn’t shared where we’ve been or what we are doing in awhile!  That doesn’t mean that things haven’t been happening, it’s just that after being on the road for over 7 years, we sometimes want a break from sharing! lol.  But, we’re back, ready to show you some of the fun places that […]

Lilla Rose hair clips – the ultimate traveler’s hair products!

We have 5 daughters.  So years ago, when I came across a blog post about unique and beautiful hairclips that promised to hold their hair, ease my time spent styling, and were lightweight and durable, I ordered some sight unseen.  Since that time, we have been wearing the Lilla Rose hairclips non-stop!  About a year […]

The Ticknor Tribe on 60 Minutes Australia…

Back in March of this year, The Ticknor Tribe pulled out of Shreveport, LA, and took a short break from our flood cleanup volunteering there, to spend a few days, in Dallas, with a film crew from Australia.  The producer was incredible to work with, and the crew was great!  We all enjoyed our time (and because they […]
