Road Trip Part Two – 12 days in a camper van

RV trip

After our week in San Francisco we went to pick up a camper van (RV). There are various reasons behind it – being able to get away from the coast is one, trying something new is another and going on a little extra adventure that the kids will love was a BIG one.

Weeks before we even left they hardly talked about something else. They were drawing camper vans, asked if ours would be the same every time we spotted one on the streets and Romy was super excited that her birthday would fall into the 12 days we had the rolling house.

Mara Mea diaper bag – review

Mara Mea changing bag
Soooooo me, myself and a diaper bag. Nothing super special about that seeing there are 4 kids in the house. But until now I did not own a proper diaper bag. Well, that is not completely true. I did get one when Romy {my eldest} was born. A rather simple dark blue version… but I never used it. Maybe I tried it once or twice… and went just back to “put a few diapers and wipes in my normal bag and done” kinda life…

Until recently.

Beacon Hill Wanderings

Beacon Hill
“Beacon Hill is one of Boston’s oldest neighborhoods filled with beautiful brownstones and decorative door knockers. The narrow streets and tall standing gas lamps are reflective of colonial times and it was truly a treat to visit this area with my family recently.

Surrounded by the brick houses and colorful flower boxes, my two girls were happily running up and down the streets exploring the neighborhood. We even made it to Acorn St., known to be the most frequently photographed street in the United States.

Antoine & Leonor’s bedroom

Antoine & Leonor's bedroom

I did it! I finally took pictures of Antoine & Leonor’s new bedroom. You remember that we changed things around when Josephine joined us. My old office / guest room moved out and became another kids bedroom.

We now have one playroom, Romy has her own room {where Antoine used to sleep too until the change}, a bedroom for Antoine & Leonor and a corner for the baby in our {truly giant} bedroom. And as I often get asked how old the kids are when it comes to rooms and where they sleep: Romy is 9 {in just a few weeks}, Antoine 6, Leonor 3 1/2 and Josephine 8 months. {at time of this post}

So we do have a 6 year old boy and a 3 1/2 year old girl sharing a bedroom. As you know I am totally not into the gender stereotype – not much of pink and blue going on here.
Let’s have a look at the room and how we managed a neutral place where everyone feels comfortable:

a week end in Båstad

week end in bastad

It’s been a little while {again} that I shared some pictures from us. Our week ends, daily life, routines and and and…

Main reason is that I am one of those that are not really super inspired when the weather is grey, wet, dark, boring… It is not that we just hang out in bed on those days {ha that would be a lot of time in bed then} no no … we try to make the best out of it but I wonder who wants to see grey skies? You probably feel like you have enough of them anyway…
