Adali's Top 5 Fiction Book Picks for 2018

Jonathan Longnecker Jonathan Longnecker / July 19, 2018

Our oldest daughter Adali has become a book reading machine in the last several years. She keeps a list of all the books she's read. She reads them so fast we can't even keep up with what book she's got open. It's awesome!

When I asked her to come up with this list, I didn't even recognize half of them. She's like a stealthy ninja reader!

Hey, hey, hey Florida! It’s been awhile since we were here in the great Sunshine State - and one step outside makes me remember why that is! Sweet Baby Jesus, it’s stupid humid here. Can we go back to the desert yet?

Mother's Day in Mobile

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / July 17, 2018

After leaving Galveston Island, we headed towards Mobile. With a quick overnight stop at Walmart, we finally made it to Meaher State Park, for the 3rd time in 3 years.

We just needed one night with hookups (hello humidity)! Jonathan actually surprised me by running to the local Fresh Market and grabbing some flowers AND desert! Thanks, babe!

Visiting Galveston Island State Park, Again

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / July 17, 2018

My oh my friends. We have so much to catch up on.

When we left Padre Island after picking up our polished Airstream, we drove to Galveston Island. This is our 2nd visit here, but first with the Airstream. Last time we came we were lucky enough to have my sister and her 3 boys come stay with us in our bit 5th wheel. That was so fun.

This time however, we hunkered down most days and caught up on work and life. We set up in a great site with the sun setting each evening right behind our rig.

Polishing our Vintage Airstream in Austin, TX

Ashley Longnecker Ashley Longnecker / June 26, 2018

When we were spending the week at McKinney Falls State Park, we made a big decision. Ever since we bought this Airstream we had thrown around the idea of getting it polished to a mirror finish, but every time we would just say, ‘maybe someday’ because it’s a huge commitment. It costs a ton of money to have done, or you spend around 200 -400 hours doing it yourself.

It’s never been a very high priority for us. Our rig is in really good shape for being 46 years old! But then again, we are Tiny Shiny Home…so why not make it truly shine?
