Following on from last years favourite family adventure blogs to follow, here are a few of the ones we’ve enjoyed following over the past year.
We Found Adventure – Bobby and Maura write about their family adventures with their two young children hiking, camping, backpacking, travelling and rock climbing. They’re also mad about canoeing and have just bought their first canoe! We love these guys for their honesty and enthusiasm about raising their kids to love and explore the outdoors. As their website states; “Passing down our respect and enjoyment of the outdoors to our children is our biggest goal in life. We are very passionate about helping other parents begin or continue an adventurous lifestyle with their kids along for the fun.” Their pictures are stunning, so be sure to head over and give them a follow on social media.
