Day 8 – No Hurry 2016: Grumpies and Smores

June 22nd, 2016 Well TeamHovis hit our low today. The day started off promising with Lady Coach getting a chance to sleep in. After that it was 5 hours of more or less continual grumpiness for all team members – maybe or maybe not related to the fact that Coach allowed the kiddos to watch…

Day 7 – No Hurry 2016: Conquering Kayaking and Ocean World

June 21st, 2016 Today was a day like any other day, if your days are full of kayaking, sharks, stingrays, crock-pot meals, pinnipeds, and Shubies. The Lady Coach nailed our breakfast of pigs in a blanket. Shortly after eating, the kiddos informed me it was time for a soak in the hot tub. So soak…

Day 6 – No Hurry 2016: Even less Hurried + Tide Pools

June 20th, 2016 Today started off with Lady Coach getting a chance to sleep-in while Coach made breakfast. Gman took advantage of Lady Coach’s snuggle proclivities and climbed into Coach’s warm spot and started sawing logs. The young ladies and Coach enjoyed pancakes, fruit and bacon for breakfast. Once Lady Coach raised from her slumber it…

Day 5 – No Hurry 2016: Kayaking & Snorkeling on the Smith River

June 19th, 2016 “This is paradise!” – E and Gman  when describing our cabin and view of the river. Happy Father’s Day, Coach!  Finally being in a “normal” house with “normal” bedrooms means kiddos actually slept until 7:30ish this morning!  Or at least that was the thought until the big kids mention they’ve already watched…

Day 4 – No Hurry 2016: Destination Known

June 18th, 2016 Kiddos started to stir around 6:50am but they kept themselves occupied with laughter and silliness until 7:15 or so. Last night the kiddos were so excited to all be sleeping in the same room – “sleepover! sleepover!” and it seems the excitement carried the morning. For breakfast we dined on leftovers: chicken…

Day 2 – No Hurry 2016: Redwoods of Confusion

June 16th, 2016 Good Morning California! A lazy breakfast at the hotel followed by a brief war against overalls marked the start of our day. Poppy seems to believe that shoulder buckles are demonic articles sent to destroy the freedom of toddlers. After a coaches huddle a new play was called and a clothes change…

Day 1 – No Hurry 2016: San Fran in a Hot Minute

June 15th, 2016 Have you ever woken up three children at 4:45 am to catch a flight? Well its the alternate definition of funny, funny. One of our highly recommended travel hacks is the “stay at a hotel right by the airport the night before an early flight” trick.  Saves you an hour of drive…
