This is our first winter traveling full time in our RV. We stayed in Phoenix for a couple of weeks before traveling to Texas to spend Christmas with Jeremy, Rachelle and the kids. While in Arizona we were very impressed with the way the snowbirds decorated their homes for the winter. Evening after evening we took our walk and finally decided it might be fun to create a video of the beautiful decorated homes….so we did!
We also took a tour of the Desert Botanical Garden while in Arizona. We didn’t know what to expect, but we really enjoyed the tour. They have thousands of twinkling lights and added LED lights synced to music to come up with a really nice display for the holidays. We’ll put that video up shortly after Christmas.
We traveled from the “dry heat” of Arizona to north Texas. Christmas time can be hectic and crowded, and we found that to be true and magnified with more people and concrete! Cars and people everywhere. Thankfully we got most of our shopping done before we left Spokane, so we just take the crowds in stride and try and have patience while in the city.
Christmas is a lot of fun with family, and we were blessed to be able to spend it with Rachelle and her family. Not only were we able to spend precious time with them, but were welcomed into Jeremy’s family too. Food, fun and games were abundant over the Christmas season….we will always remember it!
It’s now time to search for warmer weather. We’re going to spend the next three months in the Rio Grande Valley in south Texas. We’ve dubbed this next adventure as our “Season 1” and will label our travel videos accordingly. We hope that you all had a great Christmas and wish you a wonderful new year.
