Ubud Monkey Forest! We had heard reports of crazed monkeys and stolen bags but in the end I think it's about as tame or terrifying as you're up for. There's a list as long as your arm of things that "intimidate and threaten" them, like plastic, paper, food, shiny things, eye contact, small children... but if you just wander calmly along the paths through the forest it's kinda "whelming'" tbh. We were even willing to sacrifice a kid a little bit, just for a good photo, but nothin'. At least the monkeys know how to sit still and not make a ridiculous face though.
Meet Willow, our beautiful rescue cat. Over the summer we found Willow, abandoned by her owner, living in a dark farm barnyard and being constantly bullied and attacked by another cat. We got permission from the owner of the farm to take her away and re-home her. Orlaith used her doe eyes to convince my mum to keep her and, after a bumpy start, both Willow and my mum are now so happy to have each other. Willow is so content in her new home and it's an added joy for us to go back and visit her there (we kind of consider her our cat too 😸). There are sooo many loving animals out there who need homes. If you are planning to get a pet, please go to a shelter and re-home an animal rather than buying one from a shop or breeder ✌️#adoptdontshop
Two weeks ago, just after seeing the Taj, my very own small wonder says, "Mamma, can we go and see Machu Picchu in the evening". Another one to scratch off the never-ending list.

Life's a beach lately! 🌞
Seriously, why did we not go to Brasil sooner? It's perfectly laid back and beautiful and full of good music, tastes, and vibes. Everything we could have wanted!
The Fuller fam took on Las Vegas & had a great day! 3 of 4 kids are snoring😴
I wasn't about to stand in a line to take a picture with a sign, so a drive by photo it is✌ Just pretend I'm in front of it😆
Here we come California.
Top 3 things I have learned since moving across the country
1. If you want something bad enough you have an OBLIGATION to go out and make it happen. You are here for GREAT things, not to play small to others standards. And let's be honest, not everyone is going to agree with you, and that's ok. 🌍
2. Being brave does not mean that you aren't scared all the time. It means that you do it anyway. Maybe you do it kicking and screaming with tears and snot running down your face. But you KEEP moving forward. Because you have no other choice. That my darlings is bravery. 🌍
3. Dreams aren't stupid, foolish or unrealistic. They are yours for a reason. Not everyone has your dreams or goals and that's ok. They are yours. Do not EVER let someone make you feel less than for chasing them. Get out there and create your legacy. 🌍
What is something you would tell your younger self to not give up on?
Obviously this entire roadtrip I have been over the moon for! I have seen NONE of this before and I get to experience it with my husband & kids. How I got so gosh darn lucky, I will never know!!! Anyways, the Grand Canyon is something I have been so eager to see & experience. We woke up to snow. We drove through snow. The temperature dropped. We drove through MORE snow and fog. The temperature dropped more. We were left with a freezing cold, quick, somewhat fun experience. I'm happy we got to visit. I snapped a few pictures & I will remember it forever but I wish we had a better day.
I didnt filter any of these pictures. It's truly that stunning behind the fog and snow.
More adventures tomorrow!!
