Travel day, the very words that give me anxiety and butterflies in my stomach. Getting four people from point A to point B isn’t as easy as one might think. So many little details go into our whole family traveling, and the one detail that stresses me out before we even leave for the airport is how we are going to haul our luggage around. This one task can make our family go from a cute family getting ready for a fun trip to two stressed out parents frantically running through the airport with two uncooperative kids asking “when can we stop pulling our luggage?”

My kids get messy enough on a regular day at home; I don’t need to complicate things by having them surrounded by dirt and mud. So when we recently planned a trip to Yellowstone I wanted our family to have an authentic experience, while at the same time not ending up covered in dirt and smelling like campfire.

Medora North Dakota - The Best Kept Secret in the Midwest!

When travelers set out onto the open road, they tend to look at the coastlines as their final destination. After all, that’s where you find the “happiest places on earth,” right? Is that really all this great country has to offer? Two great coastlines?

When traveling through the middle of the country, it’s rarely thought of as being the destination. And yet, those states, the “fly over” or “drive straight through” states have so much more to offer a family vacation than you would ever know, if just got off the interstate. It’s time to get to know these states personally. If you plan on always skipping the great Mid-West, you are choosing to skip a land steeped rich in history, hidden fun treasures, beautiful landscapes, nature like you’ve never seen, and so much more.

About Mamas Spot

We are a family of four that left it all behind to go travel the world. No, literally we left it all. We sold all of our possessions, packed what we could into four suitcases and said goodbye to suburban life. All we own is now pulled behind us as we travel to new and exciting destinations. Showing our kids the world and teaching them about new cultures, food, and ways of life is now our 9-5.

We love watching our kids learn, and learning along side them. Together we have now explored many new countries, visited family on the other side of the world, and made memories that will last a lifetime.

Welcome to our journey!
