    If you follow my family on this blog, you know we make time for as many fun family experiences as possible.

We keep a long list of activities to choose from. Already this summer, we’ve done so much:

  • 365 Days of Adventure

    August 2, 2016

    In just a few weeks, our family will be embarking on an exciting road trip adventure across the country! This is a trip that involves some planning in advance. We have been saving for our expenses throughout the course of the year. We set up a separate travel savings account a few years ago and have been slowly building it up.

    It’s the first day of summer vacation, and as I pull out my daughter’s swim suit from the year prior, I immediately can tell, she needs a new one.

Plans, that unbeknownst to my husband and I, she has been saving up for a year.

  • How and Why to Make Family Travel a Priority

    August 2, 2016

    When our children were younger, travel meant holiday visits to see family. As they got a little older, I had a sudden strong urge to start taking trips with them that didn’t just mean visiting family for holidays. Since Eric and I both grew up not taking many trips, I wanted everyone to start having more travel experiences.

  • Using Credit FOR You! (and a chance to win $100!)

    August 2, 2016

    Somehow my kids are nine and seven. I cannot even begin to tell you how that happened.

  • Hiking & 365 Adventures with U.S. Bank

    August 2, 2016

    Summertime is memory-making time for our family. We often take where we live for granted and the close proximity to beautiful nature trails is ignored for busy schedules and errands. Summer provides time that we so desperately miss during the school year–time to explore. We made a goal recently to go on one hike each week that includes a visit to a new spot we've never explored, and the benefits have been immense. We have seen parts of Los Angeles that we never even knew existed.

  • A Penny Saved

    August 2, 2016

    Recently we started a new 365 Days of Saving Program at our house to save up for a family vacation. However, since the term “saving” often comes with the connotation of “going without” or “giving up what you want” we started this program with a different mindset…a mindset based on the old adage of “A penny saved is a penny earned”…because earning something feels more motivational than giving something up, right?

365 Days of Adventure Sweepstakes on BlogHer runs from 8/1/2016 through 9/1/2016 and is only open to individuals who, at the time of entry deadline, are legal residents of the United States and are 18 years or older. Click "here" to read the official rules. Winners will be randomly selected from all eligible entries. Good luck!
