I was not an outdoorsy person. I had never been around little kids until I had 27-week preemie twins. BUT I really wanted to travel with my kids, make memories, and for them to have a wild childhood where they got to explore. We started off going to parks, worked our way to small trips, and now go on big budget adventures! You can too! 

Oh hi there! I’m Amy!

I am Amy, the face and voice behind Everyday Outdoor Family! I am a world-traveler turned Midwesterner and mom. I hope to encourage families to see the beauty and find adventures in Kansas City, the Midwest and beyond and tips and destinations to get outdoors.  

I didn’t grow up outdoorsy, but after having very premature twins who have been hospitalized multiple times due to illnesses, we have taken to outdoor adventures as a way to keep them healthy. Now I backpack, bikepack, paddle, bike, and more with three little kids!

Your adventure doesn’t have to stop here!
