Bags are packed and we’re ready to go! How about you? 

Do you love to travel?

We love making memories with our family, from international travel across the pond to a simple day trip just down the road in the Smokey Mountains of Tennessee. We are explorers. As Jason and I get older, we believe that making memories with our kids, spending time with them, and showing them everything that God made around the globe is definitely something that is a high priority for us. So, we’ve learned some things along the way…how to find cheap flights, deals on AirB&B’s, eating on a budget in a far away land, and travel hacks that have literally saved us time and money. Our hope is that we can inspire you and your family to take a trip, even a small one down the road…and if we can help you make it easier, then we’ve done our jobs. 

Don’t hesitate to ask us about our travels and you can even check out a few of our travel videos here. Let us know where you and your family have gone…and a few of your favorite places. You never know, we may end up taking your travel tips and heading to your favorite destinations…maybe you can come along!

Surviving an Overnight Flight with Kids

When we planned our big adventure overseas we began our flight search on google flights. We were pretty flexible with dates and even open to which city in the US to fly out from. We have southwest points, along with a companion pass, so getting to most major cities would not cost us very much. […]

Why 30A is the Best Family Beach!

If you grew up in the South then you’ve probably been to the panhandle of Florida. I will argue that the beaches around the Gulf of Mexico are some of the prettiest beaches in the US. With the white sand and crystal blue water it makes it hard to go anywhere else! We have traveled […]
