Hi, thanks for dropping by!

"Two of the greatest gifts you can give your children are roots and wings." ~ Hodding Carter 


Hello Friends!

Welcome to our world, well at least a big part of it, a part that we've been excited to share... We're the Bean Family: Mike, Shayna, Aidan, Camilla, and Kendall and, while we love being home and making memories from the comfort of our roots, we equally love to spread our wings and fly and experience life from a different perspective AND different location.

We're on a mission to see tons of state and national parks in the US and beyond with a variety of fun stops in between.

Come along with us as we share the ups and not so ups of traveling with and sometimes without our kids, because we all know Mom and Dad deserve a little break every now and then, and some fun adventures, or as we call it, Bean Ventures!

We hope to spread smiles and inspiration to other busy families, who also get bogged down with the challenges of life, to live in the moment because it all goes by way too fast.



The Beans
