Upcoming adventure

We have been quiet again lately and that is because it has done nothing but rain here in Maryland but we have an exciting adventure coming up!

June 21st until June 25th we will be camping in Florida!!! We are nuts because we will be camping in June, in a tent, in Florida. But we are excited for this adventure and excited to share our experience.

ANY SUGGESTIONS ARE GREATLY APPRECIATED.  We have an airy tent and a box fan, we are looking to freeze water bottles to help Alice stay cool through the night.

What are some of your favorite camp recipies? Let us know!!!

Until next time remember the best is yet to come.

Centennial Park, Ellicot City Maryland.

This past weekend we had the chance to explore Centennial Park in Ellicot City, Maryland. We were blown away by this amazing playground!

First off there is so much to do, they have boat rentals, a boat launch, fishing areas, tons of pavilions to rent, lots of trails for bikes and walking. This park is huge, and then we hit the holy grail of all playgrounds (so far).

This playground is huge and has something for all kids! Tons of slides, tunnels, monkey bars, a rock wall, the only thing missing was swings. But over all this park was fantastic. There are also bathrooms right at the bottom of the hill. Here are some photos we took of the playground. 20180429_09463720180429_09241320180429_09171420180429_09170720180429_09173320180429_09244320180429_09172120180429_090758

We have already been back this week and the kids absolutely love it! We highly recommended this park!

Until next time remember the best is yet to come!

Route 15 PA

We had a 6 hour car ride home last weekend from NY and it was a long trip. When we drive back to maryland from Rochester we take Route 15 through PA. Let me tell you there is so much to do on route 15!

Our big stop on Route 15 is Lewisburg, PA and that is because we always stop at Country Cupboard. Country Cupboard is the perfect place to take a rest, grab something to eat and just wander through the giant market/gift shop. We love letting Alice out here and letting her run around to stretch her legs. They have tons of sweet treats in their candy section and bakery. They also have a restaurant which has great food and a grab and go section.

If Country isn’t for you there are tons of road side diners, burger spots, ice cream, and fast food on route 15. Another attraction on route 15 is Clyde’s Reptileland. We have heard great things about this location, we have yet to stop with 2 dogs it is usually difficult to stop but it is on our bucket list.

This is also Mennonite country, there are several great road side farmers markets and spots to buy Burbank quilts! Such a great drive and beautiful area.

Stay tuned for our next blog about our Skyzone experience!

Until then remember the best is yet to come!

These Shoes Were Made For Adventure.

Welcome to our new blog series!

As an attempt to adventure and explore more we will be taking at least 2 adventures a week. If not more, to a new park, a new campground, a new location. It is our hope and dream to get to all 50 states and have as many adventures as we can.

We are super excited to start this new blog, our website link will stay the same but our name has changed to These Shoes Were Made For Adventure. Come along for our family Adventures!

We are the Baughers


We are the Baughers!

Samantha, Chris and Toddler Alice. We are a family of three on a mission. A mission to find adventure and new beginnings. 2018 brings new things and changes that we weren’t expecting.

Currently we are fixing up our home in preparation to be sold. Where we are moving, we aren’t 100% sure yet. We have a few places in mind, but in reality all we need is one thing. That is each other, since our daughter was born we struggled as a family, and things well, started to fall a part.

2018 brought new job opportunities for Chris and a chance for us to “start fresh” so to say. We are taking full advantage of that and going to see where it takes us.

Currently we are decluttering our home and making daily life style changes in hopes for a better life.

Come follow us on this crazy journey called life and remember the best is yet to come.
