    Traveling with small children is the ultimate adventure.
     
    The bags. The bottles. The bedding.
     
    What won't we do for our kids?

    Me and Jesus at the Rodeo

    Me and Jesus at the Rodeo

    So what do you know about the rodeo?

    Do you think it's just a place to watch cowboys go flying into the dirt?

    Would it surprise you to learn the rodeo has a spiritual side as well?

    Trust me Pardner, it does.

    I saw that spirit at work, just inches away from a raging bull.

    Riding, Flying and Pumping Gas with The First Lady

    Is this really happening?

    Have I lost my grip on reality?

    I can't find my cameraman.

    And there's a helicopter waiting...

    hovering 100 feet above us.

    And Maria Shriver sits nearby, 

    in a low-rider, putting on her makeup.

    But the craziest part is, this isn't a dream. Unfortunately.

    Scotch coolers, PF Flyers, plastic fishing rods and Brownie cameras.

    This can only mean one thing:

    Mid-century family vacation!
     
    Were you there?

    Or would you like a peek?

    Come on, let’s take a drive back in time.

    That is, until the car breaks down.

    Up to 50% Off at the Third Tunnel of Aggression

    Korea is one crazy place.

    Where else can you find insane, clown dictators and Gangnam Style only about an hour away from each other?  

    Our mission was to explore one of the famous invasion tunnels there,

    but we somehow landed in the DMZ… gift shop.

    Join us in Neverland, for a trip down a real commie rabbit hole.
