During March, Mike and I flew to San Antonio for a few days so Mike could teach a public ExpressionEngine 2 Train-ee Class (the kids hung out with Grandpa & Grandma). Although our days were busy with the training class, our evenings were open for exploring. The trip reminded us why we’re returning to a mobile lifestyle.
The beginning of April, Mike was scheduled to teach a private Train-ee Class near Atlanta. We decided to add a few days to the event and make it a family trip. We drove longer stretches than we’re accustomed to, stayed in hotels rather than our 5th wheel (it was still in storage) and ate out more than normal (which pleased Storybird).
Even with the differences, we enjoyed adventuring together again. On the way to Georgia, we stopped in Knoxville and enjoyed a delicious home-cooked meal with the Longneckers. The day before Mike was scheduled to teach, we spent most of the day at Stone Mountain (where we challenged ourselves on the Sky Hike). The days Mike taught, the kids and I enjoyed reading, playing games, getting haircuts, watching baseball’s season opening games on TV, eating, and exploring. On our return trip to MI, we enjoyed lunch at a kitchy little restaurant in Louisville with the Ferrells.
“New” people and “new” places—we love that aspect of traveling and can’t wait until we’re back doing it full-time.
