Who Are We?

Hello! Welcome to The Adventuring Family, and thank you for taking the time to check out our blog. We are the parents of a 5 year old and a newborn, who try to find the adventure in everyday life. Adventure is defined as an exciting or remarkable experience. We believe that life is an adventure, and each day there are remarkable things to experience. Of course we Love taking big vacations, but this blog is about not just the big vacation adventures, it is also about the everyday experiences, jeep rides, outdoor family excursions, and around the house fun. We likewise do our best to see the Adventure in life’s many misadventures, as large or small as they may be, and try to keep a sense of humor about life’s adversity. Our family consists of Amy (Mom), Zac (Dad), Cooper (Our 4 year old Son), Colt (the new addition, Jake (Our 6 year old Golden Retriever), and Bo (the puppy).

Why Start a blog? Why Not!

Why did we start this blog?   We had started a bucket list together as a couple about 6 years ago and one of the many items on the list was to start a blog.  Well, here we go, this is our next big adventure, we are stepping out of our comfort zone again and starting The Adventuring Family Blog.  We hope that this blog pushes us to live our life even more adventurously, purposefully, and having fun as a family.  This is most definitely far out of our comfort zone, as we have absolutely NO IDEA how to build and manage a blog, so we have had a steep learning curve.  We have always been “bite off more than we can chew”, and “too much on our plate” kind of people, so why not! Lastly, in a life that  is consumed by technology and screens, we want to raise our son to enjoy the outdoors and the little things in life.  He is the most important part of our family and we want to cherish these moments with him, building memories that will last him a lifetime.  This will hopefully be a fun and unique way for us to look back at the fun that we have had.

What we like to write about

What can you expect from The Adventuring Family Blog?  Well, to put it simply, a little bit of everything.  We love to travel, try new things, be spontaneous, and adventure around our home and community, so we plan to blog about our getaways as well as our everyday.  We are definitely “foodies” who love to cook, so you can expect some of our favorite recipes.  Some of our favorite nights are spent together in the kitchen cooking as a family.  We will also be active on Instagram, Twitter and YouTube (links below).  This is a jumping off point for us so we hope that the blog will only expand from here.

Finally, we would like to thank you for taking the time to visit our blog! This is a new adventure for our family and although there may be some bumps getting going, we plan to jump in with both feet. We hope you enjoy our blog and continue to check back in for updates.
