I am Thankful for You! #ThankfulForFamilies Instagram Photo Contest

I am thankful for all of you!  I love and am truly touched when someone writes an personal email or comments on how the stories I've shared have motivated them to go outdoors with their family.  Sometimes social media can feel really impersonal but I have found that the #OutdoorFamilies community is really supportive and awesome to get to know.

With that said, it's time of year again when a collective of outdoor family bloggers, sponsoring companies including myself, Chasqui Mom, want to thank you for spending quality family time outdoors.  All of us are so thankful to all families, big and small, that are instilling the love of the outdoors in your children.  We want to enable you to continue enjoying the outdoors together so we have over 30 sponsors with great prizes for you to enter!

Thanks to Beachfront Baby water carriers, I had the opportunity to be one of their ambassadors this year.  Baby Pacha and I have thoroughly enjoyed both Beachfront Baby's Ringsling and wrap water carriers in and out of the water! They are gladly participating in this contest and now you have a chance to win one of your own!

Since I didn't have a chance to celebrate my 3rd year "Bloggerversary" this past August, I would love to show my gratefulness to one of my followers with a chance to win a US National Parks Annual Pass.  I love National Parks and I want everyone to have opportunity to enjoy them.


Good luck on our photo contest and remember Chasqui Mom's motto.... 

Loving nature through hiking, backpacking and anything outdoors as a family.
