About Us

We're a retired military family who have been through a few trials in life.

We know how life can change in an instant and we desire to


After 22 years in the Air Force and moving every 3-4 years, we wanted an opportunity to pave our own way.  We want to show our kids this beautiful country, visit friends and family near and far and figure out exactly where we want to set down roots.  

We want to live life on our own terms, which for us means saying goodbye to the 9 to 5 rat race, deployments, separations and keeping up with the Joneses.

We set out on an epic road trip on August 1st, 2019 in hopes of bringing our family closer and to change our lives in many ways.  

We have been talking about traveling with our children since the honeymoon we spent backpacking around Europe and we have been itching to do something like this for years.  We know life is too short and that dreams are meant to be pursued.

We now have the opportunity of a lifetime and we're excited to share our journey with you all.


Meet the Kids


Age 11

Tripp was born in Rota, Spain in 2008 and has made friends with everyone he's met from the time he was 1 year old.  He is tremendously artistic and can be found drawing every moment of the day. He loves adventure, the outdoors, comic books and takes care of his younger siblings so well.


Age 9

Hudson followed his big brother as our second Spanish-born son.  He was a tender-hearted baby, a stubborn toddler and is now our peacemaker and resident sweetheart.  Hudson loves to build things and work with his hands and dreams about having a farm someday.


Age 7

Lorelai was our sweet surprise, born in Belgium in 2012.  She entered the world with bright red hair and the sweetest demeanor.  She loves to cook, play with dolls and give hugs.  Her nickname is Love Loli because she is always showering people with love and sweetness.


Age 6

Everly came home from China in 2017 and has rounded out the Taylor Tots so well.  She is curious, sweet and loves her siblings so much.  She has endured a lot and is currently fighting a battle with brain cancer, which you would never know by looking at her because she is just a normal sweet and sassy preschooler.
