And what did you do with your new car, you ask? Why, thank you for asking! We took it on a 1/4 tank vacation to the Double JJ ranch.

We were only gone a day, yet we were so far from everyday life that it felt much longer. And so refreshing!

I told Curtis that one thing I like about being a large family is that we can stay in cool hotels like this one. We had a loft condo with a full kitchen. There was more than enough room for everyone, and it was very quiet. If there was anyone in a neighboring condo, we didn’t hear them. And there was woods all around, so we didn’t see anyone else, either.

With a water park, golfing, horseback riding, hayrides, even dog sleds, there is a lot at Double JJ to call us back there again.
