We are everyday folks with day jobs, yet we travel fairly extensively as a family of five. See how we do it in our guide on how to travel more with kids! Check out our posts on camping and hiking, road trips, and international travel, or follow us on Instagram or Facebook to see where we are headed next!

The Complete Family Camping Checklist

If you are like most people, a family camping trip usually starts off without a camping with kids checklist. It comes with grand ambitions of leaving early in the morning, pitching the tent together, some sort of recreational activity, and then relaxing by the fire roasting marshmallows while the Instagram worthy meal heats up and the picnic table is set.
