Hey there! My name is Casey Harkleroad and I am a family travel blogger. If you are a parent who likes to hike, explore, and find new things to do with the kids, you are in the right place.

This blog is meant to give you ideas for where to travel and explore and how to make these things easy to do with kids of all ages. Through giving advice on how to avoid travel disaster and suggesting kid friendly routes and activities, this blog will help you become more confident traveling the world with your kids!

We are a very adventurous bunch. I used to get a lot of questions regarding the activities we got into. People generally want to know how we survive doing so much with two young kids in tow. I figure the best way to share all of our adventures and answer questions is to blog about it.

We are by no means professional travelers. We make a LOT of mistakes and have a bad habit of just winging things without putting in much planning. My husband, Patrick, and I tend to live in the moment and go where the wind takes us. It makes for a lot of interesting stories, but it also gives us a lot of experience on how to improve our next adventures.

I’m really looking forward to sharing our journey with you. I want this to be an informative blog, but I also want to connect with y’all and hear about your experiences too. We are always looking for recommendations on new places to visit so please feel free to pass some ideas our way!

I hope you enjoy reading about our experiences out in Our Happy Place!
