Our Family of Explorers
HI! I’m Crystal and I’m so glad you’ve stopped by to meet our explorers (AKA – my family!). My excitement for adventure and exploration has rubbed off on my husband and children in a serious infective way – we are always counting the day till our next adventure – no matter where it leads us! We’ve skirted around the USA hitting about 80% of the states but there’s SO much MORE to explore! My husband Craig puts up with my crazy travel ideas – after all it’s about exploring new places and making memories with our family! Although we’d love to explore the world and have plans for it some day our budget allows phenomenal road trips in the USA where there’s always something new to discover and explore!
Summer 2018: A Magical Whirlwind to Orlando Florida focusing on theme parks and the Harry Potter World. Also a trip to the UP in Michigan discovering nature, shipwrecks and lighthouses.
Summer 2019: Road trip on all of Route 66 and the Pacific Coast Highway from Illinois to California (and Grand Canyon!) to Seattle and back to IL.
Summer 2020: A road trip from IL to FL with a family cruise in between.
Meet our Youngest Explorers
Dakoda is our oldest Kid Explorer currently in the 6th grade and he has a strong obsession with the Minecraft, technology, conspiracy theories and pretty much anything you can find outdoors. He is a strong intelligent kid with high functioning Asperger’s who isn’t afraid of any creature or challenge. Bugs and animals are all his friends and he has quite the collection of them. He is always up for a good adventure and soaks up traveling and educational learning like a sponge.
Landon is our middle Kid Explorer and he’s in the 3rd grade. He’s the social butterfly of the family and is extremely easy going. He’ll do anything to make you laugh and shows us how to live life to the fullest. Just sit back in amazement and watch him find the joy in everything. If he gets bored the silly will come out and make everyone around laugh! A true hands on explorer who learns by doing we often find him in the creek covered in mud or sculpting with clay in his room. He’s not afraid to be himself and makes friends with everyone he meets.
Don’t let those innocent blue eyes and pretty outfit fool you – our youngest Explorer Bayleigh is on the move and is ready to compete with her brothers! At almost 3 years old our spunky whirlwind never sits still and loves explores everything she can climb on. She’s not afraid to taste a good stick or insect and she brings laughter to the whole family.
