Top 3 Reasons to Visit New Mexico Museum of Natural History

Museum of Natural History & Science in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Top 3 Reasons To Visit…

Boegley got a little bug-eyed over the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science.  He had so much fun that we ended up being there for quite some time – after all, we had an all day pass, so we could take a break and go back if need be.  Sometimes that can come in rather handy when we’re pet sitting a sweet little dog that can’t just be left alone for hours and hours.

 


1. Tons of Educational Opportunities

homeschool

We thoroughly enjoyed learning about earthquakes, climate change, carbon footprinting, dinosaurs, stars, and so much more.  With plates under our feet at The Quaking Earth Exhibit, we even had the chance to create our own earthquake and see how it registered.

Then, we moved to another interactive exhibit that helped Boegley decide which food items he should choose, so he could consider how much of a carbon footprint each menu item actually causes.


2. Planetarium

In a domed theatre, we got to watch a 30-45 minute video of the stars and cosmos.  This was Boegley’s favorite thing.  Of course, outside the theatre was a fabulous exhibit with large models of the planets and our solar system and even a replica of the Mars Rover.

3.  Evolator Time Machine

Rob’s favorite thing was the Evolator Time Machine.  It seemed like an elevator, but you go in and sit down.  Then a humorous video comes on to guide you through different periods of time -over a course of millions of years- in New Mexico.

It was entertaining and educational, but didn’t have the 3-D theme park ride feel.  That made Boegley happy.  He doesn’t like the movement of the 3-D rides.  So, this was much better for him.


Beyond our three favorite things, you’ll find a long list of interactive and fascinating things to do and see within the museum.  Plus, they have tons of camps, facility rentals, and even adult field trips. 

Just as we said earlier this week about Explora, with or without kids, homeschool/worldschool or regular school…we highly recommend checking out the New Mexico Museum of Natural History and Science in Albuqueruqe!

5 Favorite Things About Explora in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Explora in Albuquerque, New Mexico

Our 5 Favorite Things…
Explora

Boegley was quite happy to give Explora a big thumbs up after our family adventure there earlier this week.  Located in near Old Town Albuquerque, this was a very fun and unique experience. 

And, though we got in via complimentary passes from Amy Carr, Publications and Marketing Manager, the admission is very affordable for a family!

There were so many amazing interactive exhibits that it was tough for us to choose just five favorite things, but we finally made our choices. 

Amy Carr


1. Engineering and Gravity

engineering and gravity

We could’ve stayed near the entrance for hours.  Watching the balls roll along the tracks, drop, bounce and even cause the bell to chime was a mesmerzing experience.  But, there was far more to see and do, so we moved on…eventually.


2. Moving Air

But, we didn’t get far before we found one of our next favorite things.  An interactive exhibit about moving air grabbed our attention.  Via a simulation we each got the chance to sit down and try our hand at getting a model plane off the ground!  I can honestly say it was exhilirating.  All three of us, put this as one of our very favorite experiences in Explora.

Does anyone need a pilot?  Well, perhaps we’d better get actual training first and dozens of hours in the air – LOL!

3.  Axolotl

The black one in the photo below is one of the amazing Axolotl’s at Explora.  The corner photo of the pink one gives you a better idea of just how cool they are though.

At Explora they have a male and a female black one.  They’re full-grown daughter is similar to the pink one.

Due to these “Mexican salamander’s” ability to regenerate more than any other known animal on the planet, scientists are very intrigued by them.  They’re exceptionally gentle and curious.  Yep, seeing these little beauties was my -Janelle’s- favorite thing 🙂

4. Paradox Cafe

Need a little break after exploring for so long?  On the upper level, they have a very unique cafe with tables and chairs as well as booths.  While only some tables have computers, each one has a unique activity to keep guests entertained while sitting down for a bit to eat.

The Paradox Cafe will make you wonder about your perception!  You have to really challenge what you’re seeing to decipher what is true and what is not.  At the current time in our country, that’s a great way to help our kids see that what we think is the truth may not be the case.


5. Curious Bubbles

Making time for the bubble exhibit is a MUST!  As you can see below, Daddy/Rob, enjoyed the bubble section.  So much so, that he magically grew a bubble beard!

bubble beard

Yes, this was Rob’s favorite exhibit 🙂  The exploration of bubbles in this section was amazing.  Bubbles continually grew here and there.  Tubs of bubble solution with giant dippers brought tons of fun.  And, we’ve gotta mention the bubble sheet.  


There was so much to do at Explora.  It wasn’t just for kids either.  In fact, they even have a night every other month specifically for adults 18+.  They have a “A Night with the Animals”, “Fired Up”, “Inventive Art” and more.  

They have educational programs and camps.  There’s toddler time, a live theatre and so much more.  So with or without kids, homeschool/worldschool or regular school…we highly recommend checking out Explora in Albuqueruqe!

Our Journey – Part Three – What Made Us Decide to Travel

 

About 3 years ago this coming March, we interviewed 22 couples for a book we were writing.  The focus of that book, Richer Together: Secrets to Working, Living, and Loving Side-by-Side, was about entrepreneurial couples and how they are successful as business partners as well as partners in life.  One couple, in particular, really stood out to us – Rhonda & Brian Swan, The Unstoppable Family.  Just one of the things that was mentioned during that conversation was to listen to your partner – even when you think their idea is crazy.

We were living in Westminster, CO at the time, and I remember hanging up from our Skype conversation, looking at Rob and saying something to the effect of, “Why don’t we do that?  Why don’t we just sell everything we own and travel the world like they do?”

We could see so many different places.  Boegley would get to experience the world like his older brothers never had – like most kids never get to.  The opportunity to teach him to appreciate the differences on a global scale was at our fingertips, and we wanted to take on a new challenge together.  Travel = transformation.  We were incredibly excited at the prospect.

After having gone through a few really tough years, we were more than ready for a big change…even bigger than moving across the country and leaving all of our family behind. That day we agreed that we’d do it.  However, both of our oldest sons were juniors in high school at the time – one of whom lived with us (Note: Our kids are his, hers and ours…so my oldest son was with us.)

This pushed us to wait until they both graduated.  The plan was to start traveling once we knew they were both off to college or whatever adventures their adult lives would bring them.  Ah…but our plans changed a bit.

We just didn’t feel quite ready the next year, so instead we opted to move down to Colorado Springs.  It took us another year to get Rob back out of his corporate job…then, we began to think about where we wanted to go.  Our plans of traveling were finally back on the table.

Last winter, we made the decision to finally get rid of everything – almost – and set off on a full-time traveling lifestyle.  First stop…the beach!

Yep…the above photo is one we snapped on the beach less than a five minute walk from our townhouse.  Yep…we got to go over there almost every day.  Yep…it was as beautiful and turquoise as the photo – more often than not.  No more cold weather. No more snow.

Yet, just after three months, we were hankering to get moving again.  Where to next? We decided it was time to jump into house sitting and pet sitting.  That literally opened doors for us that we never would’ve imagined before. Um…and will bring some snow and cold weather back into our lives – time to buy new winter coats.

As I write this post today, we’re sitting in Albuquerque, New Mexico taking care of a sweet little dog named Fritz.  He accepted us right away, which is always fantastic for both the fur babies and for us.  And, we get to spend time exploring the area from the Sandia Mountains to Old Town Albuquerque to the little town of Magdalena.  

Now, let me move this post in a different direction.  Since we also like to share with you about our spirit guides and signs from the Universe I’ll tell you that the synchronicities and the signs that showed up for us the first couple of days after we decided to take on the house sitting journey blew us away (and we’ve experienced A LOT – so this was pretty big).  The names we were getting connected to were often almost identical to our guides names.  The number “3” showed up so many times over the course of those first few days Rob and I were stopping to show each other every half hour or so…I’m not kidding.  Threes are HUGE for us – especially “33” and “133”.  To see them show up again and again and again – especially in odd places that were clearly connected to our planning – was downright uncanny.  

The signs haven’t stopped showing up either.  We continue to see them.  With traveling by car we often see “133”, “33” or “333” on license plates.  Now sure, if we just saw them once in a while it would be cool, but we see these almost every time we come up behind another vehicle or someone cuts in front of us and gets our attention…yep, their plate number will have duplicate 3s.  This is just one example – the list is far too long to share it all here.

Here’s the thing – you don’t have to be transpersonally or metaphysically focused.  Your spiritual views can be very different.  But, you still need a plan.  If you want to see signs and confirmations and if you want your travel adventures to go well, you need to trust and you need a plan.  That’s exactly why we put together the Six Steps to Live a Life of Freedom. If you have dreams of traveling full-time, part-time or just escaping the 9-5 then get access to the training by clicking here – it’s free! 

We’ll continue to share parts of our journey with you – not only going forward, but also how we got to where are now – the tough stuff and the amazing stuff.

On top of that, we’re going to be sharing more and more about our spirit guides with you.  If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be living the life of our dreams.

Life is an adventure – live it with no more boundaries,

Janelle (and Rob + Boegley)

How RVing Relates to Life

We’re so often asked if we’re RVing.  That is something we opted not to do, but it is a perfect fit for thousands of people.  Maybe that’s you and your family?

The pics we’re sharing today are from Rocky Mountain National Park.  Last summer, we drove the Trail Ridge Road and stopped to snap these pics of moose right in the campground.  This certainly isn’t something you’ll find staying in most hotels or Airbnbs.

Here’s an interesting take on RVing and life…by Lisa Starr.

In many ways, RVing is like life, like enjoying the journey. Unfortunately, many people at many times in life feel like the destination is all that is important. To prove this point, in the movie “RV” with Robin Williams, the initial goal was the destination. In the end, the journey ended up being the most important thing. It’s strange how the destination can change based on the journey; goals can shift and one can realize what is really the most important.

RVing is also like life because there are going to have to be some repairs along the way. If the RV does not get fixed, just like a negative attitude, etc., it can be a LONG road ahead. The ability to make mid-course corrections or stop for repairs helps the ability to get to the destination safely and easily. Changing what is not working for the RV or the person inside the RV makes for a more pleasurable journey (for the driver and the passengers:P).

In addition, before going on a trip RVing, preparations must be made. Just as important, preparations must be made on this trip called life. Whether in school, on the job, or elsewhere, presentations of some sort need to be made. The more preparations are made for major life events, the more smooth the transitions become.

In RVing and in life, sometimes the memories are what stays with you. At times, it’s the happy memories of how the family bonded on the vacation/service project/spring cleaning of the house. Sometimes, it is who you became because you went on the journey. Other times, it’s the vacation/day where everything went wrong that creates the most memories. Because of those memories, we often have desire to take the journey again another time.

Anticipation is often more exciting than the actual adventure in both RVing and life. The anticipation of Christmas, the upcoming RV trip, the promotion at work, graduation, retirement, RVing during retirement are all exciting events that require planning (see a paragraph above). How many of us have waited with rapt attention for the winner of a contest? RVing preparation is the same way – the planning of the destination and the stops along the way, the campgrounds, etc. What a thrill to plan and think of what fun you’ll have.

The anticipation doesn’t have to end here.

Have Fun No Matter Where You Are

Over Thanksgiving we made a 13+ hour drive to see my dad and stepmom in the middle of nowhere…seriously.  They live in a little tiny town in Oklahoma.  But, here’s the thing, we found cool things to see while we were there.  

Boggy Depot State Park was a very fascinating place off the beaten path.  It gave us a great opportunity to see something we wouldn’t normally see and share some history with Boegley at the same time.  It was used as a Confederate commissary depot during the Civil War.  More importantly, it was a very important town in the Choctaw Nation. Great worldschool moment 🙂

And, of course, we took time to act like dorks!  I mean what else are you to do with a closed old building…just run and fake a cartoon break-through-the-wall moment. Way to go Rob!

Boegley took some time to check out the water’s edge.  It was actually a bit too chilly to wander off on one of the walking trails that day, but there it’s a great little place to explore and spend some time in nature.

It got a thumbs up from the little guy!  Lots of information to take in on the signs. And, just a feeling there that you can’t explain.  It was like the Native Americans were still there – you could just feel their energy.

Most importantly I got to spend some time with family!  When you live a life of freedom it is actually easier to travel and see the various members of your family no matter where they might be.

Working and living where we want, when we want and how we want,

Janelle, Rob and Boegley

 

Our Favorite Things About Beach Photo Shoot

View More: http://amandapuskarphotography.pass.us/alexfamily

A couple of weeks ago we met up with Amanda of Amanda Puskar Photography at St. Andrews Park in Panama City Beach, FL, for a sunset family photo shoot.  Not only did she rock the shoot, but she brought her husband and kids.  It was amazing to meet her family, too!  She doesn’t always bring the whole family, but we were so glad she did this time.  What a great group of people!

Amanda and her husband, Jeremy, were so easy to work with and talk to.  She made quick work of getting numerous shots of us.  Her patience for Boegley’s high energy was fabulous.  We didn’t request anything in particular…we just let her tell us what to do.  It was fun to hand over the reins in an effort to get beautiful family pictures.

This particular area is a great location for photographers, so it was busy.  But, Amanda made us feel totally comfortable and worked miracles around random people moseying along the beach.

What more could we ask for.  We met an amazing family, a great photographer, had lots of laughs, had our feet in the sand and splashed in the surf.

There is no doubt that we highly recommend Amanda Puskar Photography.  In fact, getting beautiful, silly and fun family photos on the beach makes for a great excuse to visit Panama City Beach, so send Amanda an email or give her a call.

We give Amanda and her crew a thumbs up!

Top 5 Reasons to Do a Sunset Cruise with Island Time Sailing

sunset-on-island-time-boat

With the wind in your hair, a drink in your hand and glorious gentle seas lapping against a 50-foot-long catamaran, you can experience a deeply profound moment as the sun sinks into the water. The pinks, the oranges, the blues, the purples and the utter sense of peace is simply beyond compare. Engines cut and mainsail unfurled, we all quietly watched as the day came to a gentle end with Island Time Sailing.

Taking a sunset cruise with a large group of strangers can lead to beautiful connections. On board during our sailing excursion there were two couples celebrating their anniversaries, there were young kids seeing dolphins in open water for the first time, there were people laughing and chatting easily with one another though they would most likely never meet again.

Boegley got the opportunity to drive his first vehicle…I never imagined before we took off on our gypsy life that he would drive a big boat as his first. The beautiful seriousness on his face as he steered touched my heart in a way I simply can’t explain. It was magnificent. He’s been such a shy kid for most of his life, but he is starting to come out of his shell. That evening, he walked up to the captain and asked to not only sit in the captain’s seat, but to steer the catamaran. The entire crew were amazing with all the kids on board. If they wanted a chance to steer, they got it!

boegley-steering-jacob-and-captain-brenden

After we go on an adventure, we like to share at least three of our favorite things about it with you. This time we had so many things we really loved it was harder than normal to narrow down.

  1. Seeing the jellyfish floating by the boat.
  2. Watching the dolphins surface and schools of fish jump out of the water.
  3. The gorgeous sunset on the water.
  4. Watching our son steer the catamaran.
  5. The amazing hospitality of the captain and crew.

Boegley loved steering, and he was fascinated with the dashboard controls. I lost count how many times he went back to check and see how deep the water was below us. But, his favorite thing was seeing the jellyfish float by in the boat lights after the sun had set and we were heading back to the marina. Some of these jellyfish were the size of basketballs while others were quite small. He enjoyed seeing the dolphins come to the surface, but they weren’t jumping or overly playful the evening we were out. So, the jellyfish caught his eye more 🙂

Rob was excited from the get-go as the bartender set the Gilligan Island’s theme on play before we even pulled out of the slip. Luckily for us it wasn’t a three-hour-tour!

rob-and-janelle

His favorite aspect of the cruise was all of the wildlife. Pelicans perched on the pilings throughout Grand Lagoon, dolphins breaking the surface, schools of fish jumping out of the water, and yes, the jellyfish drifting along next to the boat. Oh, and let’s not forget a beer in his hand with a bit of good island music playing in the background.

My favorite aspect of being out with Island Time is really just the overall experience of being on the water. Mind you, it was a very calm night. Warm and simply beautiful. I loved how the crew were so welcoming to everyone – very, very friendly from the ticket window to the bartender to the young man handling the sails to the captain. They made the cruise so much fun and so relaxed.

sunset-cruise-2016

After the sun sank beneath the horizon, they had a hula hoop contest and then brought around the conch shell. Rob, Boegley and I all had some success blowing the conch.  Trying things that new and different are certainly worth it – they make memories!


If you’re going to be in or near Panama City Beach, FL, we highly recommend taking a dolphin sunset cruise or a snorkling cruise with Island Time Sailing. We’ll never forget our beautiful evening with them!

Life is an adventure, so live it,

Our 3 Favorite Things About Ripley’s in Panama City Beach, Florida

Earlier this week, we had the opportunity to visit the S.S. Ripley at Ripley’s Believe It or Not in Panama City Beach, FL.  We had a great time, and highly recommend it if you’re going to be in the area.  Makes for a fun place to get in and cool off from the hot sun or a place to spend part of a rainy day.

The floating car that is a real working boat with a motor!

The floating car that is a real working boat with a motor!


Here are three of our favorite things:

Rob’s Favorite – The “dancing wall” near the end of the museum.  There are three screens you dance in front of (or make funny faces, which Boegley had a great time doing as well).  It made us think of the funny mirrors that change your shape and size, but it’s a real time video with music.  What a cool idea…dancing your way out of the Odditorium!

boegley-mirror-maze

Boegley’s Favorite – The mirror maze.  It was well lit, but yet dark in a cool sort of way.  The positioning of the various mirrors easily tricked us into thinking we were headed down a hallway, but often we ran smack into ourselves in yet another mirrored wall.  It was a riot!  They even have guests put plastic gloves on, so the mirrors don’t become smudged with handprints.  Honestly, it takes a bit of time to find your way through the maze.

img_1909

Janelle’s Favorite – The Titanic exhibit.  There is an actual replica of the part of the ship that was gouged by the iceberg, and it gives guests an idea of just how fast and how much water rushed in!  They also have a small display of water, which guests get to place their hand in to see just how freezing cold the ocean was that night.  With tons of information on that horrific event, this can make for a wonderful educational piece for homeschoolers, as well as for school teachers and parents.

Beyond that, the fact that there are 500 exhibits, a load of them are interactive, and they truly bridge the gap from really young kids to grandparents.  Some of them will give you a little fright – one button Janelle pushed dropped a big spider down…and yes, she yelped and ran away – LOL.  Then, there was the “Can you grab this jewel?” moment.  Rob claimed nothing happened when he put his hand in, but when Janelle put her arm in all the way…well…you’ll just have to visit and find out for yourself!  

Will Rob be bonked on the head?

Will Rob be bonked on the head?


Don’t just take our word for it!  Go see it for yourself, then share a comment with us.  We’d love to hear your favorite things, too!

10 Fun Things to Do in Colorado

556570_415884288462925_1997476119_n

There are so many things to do in Colorado.  We spent quite a while there and had a blast, so we thought we’d backtrack a bit today and share some of the coolest places we visited.  These just scratch the surface, but here you go…

Rocky Mountain National Park – It was a yearly drive for us every summer we were there.  Make sure you take a sweatshirt or jacket and a pair of shoes to hike a bit in. It might be 90 degrees in Denver or Boulder, but it can drop 30 or 40 degrees pretty easily in the mountains.  Brrr…  With different trails to take off on or even just hiking up to the highest point on a paved path it’s best to have at least a pair of sneakers.  You’ll likely see elk, moose or big horn sheep while driving along Trail Ridge Road.

Estes Park – Considered the “base camp” for Rocky Mountain National Park this beautiful little town offers a ton of nifty shops, restaurants, lodging and things to do.  And, of course, the famous and haunted Stanley Hotel is located there.  

boegley-estes-park-view-2016  

Stanley Hotel – We didn’t get to do the ghost adventure package at the Stanley since our little guy is just too young for that.  But, trust us, we’ll make a trip back once he’s older and braver or once he’s graduated 🙂   It’s a gorgeous old hotel, and yes, it’s said to be seriously haunted.  We interviewed a psychic medium last year who actually had an interesting experience there.  Since Rob and I are both deeply connected spiritually and intuitively, we definitely need to go back.

Celestial Seasonings – OMG, the peppermint room was a memory we’ll never forget.  They give free tours, and you get samples of teas.  This was a lot of fun, and actually quite educational.  But, going into the peppermint room was, well, let’s just say your eyes might burn a little.  It was amazing, but Boegley got a little overwhelmed with the aroma and he and Daddy stepped back out of the room.  Definitely something to check out though if you’re going to be around Boulder.

Um...yes, you have to wear a hair net.

Um…yes, you have to wear a hair net.

Sixteenth Street Mall in Denver – This is a really neat place.  Located downtown Denver, there are tons of shops, restaurants, and hotels.  If you like a big city feel, then you simply must take some time and visit there.  On a funny note – watch your step.  The last time we were there (July 2016), we were attending a seminar in the area and on our walk to lunch I guess I stepped on a pebble.  Flip flops can be hazardous – LOL.  I went down with that instant pop back up and look around to see who saw you fall moment.  Luckily, the scraped foot wasn’t too bad, and I laughed off my clumsiness.  

Pearl Street Mall in Boulder – By far, we preferred going there over Denver, but that might just be our inner hippie coming out.  After all, we are living as gypsies now 😉 At both 16th Street in Denver and Pearl Street in Boulder, you’ll find street performers and amazing shops and food.  Boulder has the added bonus of having the flat irons…and they are just freaking awesome to see! 

Garden of the Gods in Colorado Springs – The first time we walked along the path at the Garden of the Gods, the energy shift blew us away.  It is so peaceful there.  It’s a phenomenal feeling, and something everyone should experience if they get the chance.  There are a couple of short walking paths that most anyone can do, and there are numerous hiking and biking trails in the area as well.

garden-of-the-gods-2016

Olympic Training Center in Colorado Springs – Ever wonder how the olympic athletes train?  You can see for yourself if you visit the training center in Colorado Springs.  It’s over 35 acres in size, but the walk is a pretty easy one.  Depending on who’s training when you visit, you can see weightlifters, gymnasts, swimmers, and more.  There’s a practice balance you can try, a punching bag, a bobsled and even wheelchair basketball – uh, I’d advise you not want to have your phone in your pocket if you try wheelchair basketball though.  You might just end up with a cracked phone…Rob has a tendency to run over cell phones when playing. LOL

Perhaps, you can see why Rob is NOT a member of the USA bobsled team.

Perhaps, you can see why Rob is NOT a member of the USA bobsled team.

Helen Hunt Falls in Colorado Springs – This is a beautiful little spot without a lot of foot traffic.  It’s super close to a paved road so almost anyone can walk up to see the falls.  There is a small hiking trail you can take if you’re a bit more agile.  This is a place we visited on more than one occasion.  It’s just so peaceful.

img_1397

Sky Sox Baseball in Colorado Springs (or a Rockies game up in Denver) – We love minor league baseball games.  Loads of fun, and Rob sometimes ends up on the field participating in one of the contests.  Our older boys have sang Take Me Out to the Ball Game (in San Diego).  I seem to be a magnet for balls…no, not catching them.  A foul ball in Gatlinburg literally whizzed by my ear and the giant beach ball almost got me in the head at a Sky Sox game – thanks Rob for saving me LOL.  The best was last summer when Boegley drank soda, which he doesn’t normally do.  We began to think he was “drunk” on soda.  He kept dancing and cheering the team on and saying, “Do it for the Pepsi!”  

screen-shot-2016-09-12-at-5-26-42-pm

These were all places that we really enjoyed, but let’s not forget a few of the others:

If you’re heading to Colorado, we recommend every single one of these places or events.  Truly, there are an endless amount of things to do there.  We didn’t even touch on the vast amount of outdoor activities, but we wanted to take a moment and share some of the things we really loved during our time there.

 

Life is an adventure, so live it,

Janelle (and Rob + Boegley)

Our Journey – Part Two – When Family Turns Their Back

Today would’ve been Rob’s father’s birthday, but he unexpectedly transitioned from this life two years ago.  Rob took time this morning to do a special meditation on the beach at sunrise in honor of his father.

Our guides have come through more than once telling Rob that his dad is helping us from the spiritual dimensions, but that was not something we would’ve expected.

Six years ago, when we had to close our brick and mortar business, numerous members of Rob’s family turned from us.  His dad turned his back and there was next to no relationship with that side of the family for four years.  The why isn’t important now, but we all know that sometimes hard feelings, misundertandings, and/or lack of communication can bring about rifts between family as well as dear friends.  The truth can often look different to different people

In early spring 2014, we got a message from our guides telling us it was time to reconnect to Rob’s parents.  We weren’t sure why, but we reached out to his mom and made plans to see them again during our visit to our hometown later that spring.  We’re very grateful that we did.  It was a healing experience.

No one would’ve ever dreamed that Charlie would leave this world a couple of months later.  So, today on his birthday and on a day that has a huge impact on so many people in the USA, as it’s 9/11, Rob decided to spend some quiet time on the beach focusing on his father.

Happy Birthday Charlie!  And, lots of love to Rob’s mom, Jenny!

We’ll continue to share parts of our journey with you – not only going forward, but also how we got to where are now – the tough stuff and the amazing stuff.  

On top of that, we’re going to be sharing more and more about our spirit guides with you.  If it wasn’t for them, we wouldn’t be living the life of our dreams.

Life is an adventure – live it with no more boundaries,

Janelle (and Rob + Boegley)
