We're around Gettysburg for a few days, and while we were out doing our weekly grocery shopping, I noticed a sign for the Utz Factory. Do they make those near here? Yes they do! But do they have factory tours? Yes!
Happy Sunday! Pizza day is taking a little bit of a different feel today. That's because we're in New Hampshire and one thing we've been seeing a lot of in New Hampshire has been dairy farms. We've stopped at 3 so far! Many of them have ice cream to buy, so for today, I'm making a New Hampshire Ice Cream cookie pizza!
Today we're taking one more trip to the Gettysburg Battlefield. We saw the Battlefield, but there's one more place that has history in this location. Abraham Lincoln was here and gave his famous Gettysburg Address when the cemetery was dedicated on November 19, 1863.
For today's post, we're stopping by a place that's very important in American history. Chi has wanted to come here for years but never did make it. Now that we're mobile, they can come visit and go on some adventures with us!
It's another travel day and we're about to head north.
Earlier in the day we visited Yorktown, the site where the pivotal battle of the Revolutionary War took place in America's quest for independence. Now we're jumping back in history by about 175 year to the site of the first permanent settlement. Welcome to Jamestown!
Happy Halloween (just a little early)!
For the third year in a row, Mountain Dew has released a mystery flavor, 2021 Mtn Dew VooDew! Back in 2019, the mystery flavor was Candy Corn. Then in 2020, it was Fruit Candy Explosion, which we figured out was Skittles. What will it be this year?
I love that we get to go around the USA and visit sites of historical interest. Today we're navigating the Historic Triangle of Virginia, including Yorktown, Jamestowne, and Williamsburg.
Happy Sunday! Time for another pizza in the RV! Just about every week we're in a new location, and I'm trying to theme my homemade pizzas to the region we're visiting!
This week we're in New York. I already made New York Style pizza with the giant foldable slices when I first started this pizza journey over a year ago. Let's see, Big Apple, I've already done an apple pie pizza before.
A look at google for "what foods is NY known for" shows the second most popular item listed is New York Style Cheesecake. Tonight I'll be making a New York Strawberry Cheesecake Pizza!
I love it when Lay's comes up with something new! And here I thought that the Summertime Lays taste test we did a couple months ago would be it for the summer. But Lay's is doing a Flavor Swap with some very popular chips and I'm really excited to try something familiar but new! Lay's is swapping the flavor with Doritos Cool Ranch, Cheetos, and Funyuns!
Today is another travel day! It's been a fun time in North Carolina, and it was a late night last night watching meteors in the Outer Banks, but it's time to pack up and head to our next destination. We're headed north toward the Chesapeake Bay in Virginia!
It was such a good time visiting the Outer Banks a few days ago, we decided to drive the 2 hours back to spend the day again. There's a lot to do here, so let's get started!
Today is our last full day in North Carolina and it's going to be a full one. We had such a good time in the Outer Banks a few days ago that we all decided to come back. Since we're here, the kids wanted to try to earn another Junior Ranger badge, so our first stop of the day is Fort Raleigh National Historic Site.
Earlier today we were at the Wright Brothers Memorial in the Outer Banks of North Carolina. That's not all there is to see out here though. There's also lighthouses!
Happy Sunday! I'm loving these pizzas that are themed to the locations we're staying. Currently we're in Hershey Pennsylvania and so of course I'm going to theme this week's pizza around Hershey Chocolate! I've had a dessert pizza in mind for a while and this seems like the perfect opportunity to try it. Today I'm going to make a S'mores pizza with Hershey's chocolate!
Today we're exploring a really amazing part of American History. We're in North Carolina at the birthplace of Aviation where the Wright Brothers successfully flew a heavier than air craft for the first time in history! For kids who like Space, this is what started it all.
Today is another move day, so we've better get moving. We're currently in Tennessee at Pigeon Forge and our next stop is just over the border into North Carolina. Should be a nice easy driving day, or so I was thinking.
Could this be a case of "Ask and ye shall receive"?
A little while ago we did a taste test with the original three Scorchin' flavors: Scorchin' Cheddar, Scorchin' Chili Lime, and Scorchin' BBQ. At the end of it, I was wishing that they would have made a Scorchin' version of my favorite flavor, the Sour Cream & Onion Pringles.
Luckily for me, we've recently had Theresa's sister visit from Michigan and she brought me a tube!
After a fun time exploring the area around the visitor's center we started heading back to the truck.
We meet people around the RV park when we take our random walks. One couple we happened to meet were a pair of school teachers from Texas who are enjoying their summer off. They even mentioned something called a Barndominium which is something you can park your RV in and live in too. We'll have to look into that whenever we settle down.
Anyway, we randomly happened to see them in the parking lot while we were walking back to the truck. They mentioned just returning from Cades' Cove, an isolated valley and the most popular destination inside Great Smoky Mountain National Park. And while they were up there they even saw a bear up in a tree!
