Redbubble: independent designs on clothing (and more) you’ll love

My husband is a pretty well-dressed man, if I do say so myself. He’s got a wide variety of dress clothes, but he has a tough time for casual t-shirts because they tend to be either boring (solids, stripes or plaids) or else they’re huge logos and he’s not into that.

Neither my husband nor myself have ever been before and our big goal on this trip was to do as much outdoor-exploring type activities with the girls as possible (in between visiting with friends and family, of course) so it sounded like a great way to spend a day!
