When the mold problem in Meghan King's St. Louis home "was becoming more and more concerning," The Real Housewives of Orange County alum decided to turn the issue into an adventure for her three kids she shares with ex-husband, Jim Edmonds. She packed up the family and decided to embark on a staycation at nearby St Charles, Missouri.

How to Watch

Watch The Real Housewives of Orange County on Bravo Thursday, July 11 at 9/8c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo App.

Why? Well, she explained it all in a blog on her website, writing, "The adventure was incredible.  I felt so empowered to have created memories with my kids with only a short “vacation” on the outskirts of St Louis.  I want to continue this trend with them, I want my kids to remember me as a mom who cared about making memories WITH them and not being afraid of a challenge (just like my mom did with my siblings and me.)"

The mini trip included her twins, Hart and Hayes, spending a night with their grandparents as she and daughter Aspen spent a night at a hotel "for a 'Girl’s Night Out.'"

Later on, Megan, her three kids, and their nanny at the time, Ashley, rented a house in St. Charles for the next part of their adventure.

She said, "Wrangling three kids to eat three square meals, nap, and get a full night’s rest in a new house that they want to explore is not easy, but we managed to do it and we did it well.  I think having a well-established routine at home helps make new places feel more comfortable but who really knows. I mean, three kids aged 2, 2, and 3 have wonderful, creative, inquisitive, and energetic minds of their own and anything can change on a whim for any reason or no reason at all."
