We checked Cuyahoga Valley National Park off our list last week! So now we’re 17/60 National Parks. Earned the Great Lakes, Cuyahoga & Angler Junior Ranger badges! Here we are looking at Brandywine Falls! Swipe to see the Cuyahoga Train, more of the beautiful Brandywine Falls boardwalk & the Junior Ranger badges (Great Lakes will be mailed to us) : : : #travelwithkids #nationalparkgeek #cuyahogavalleynationalpark #waterfallwednesday #seeamerica #roadtrippers #nps #findyourpark #optoutside #juniorranger #frugaltravelwithkids
Motherhood is a mix of sweet moments, chaos, the mundane, and everything in between. Pictures don’t always turn out great (case in point here as my little man was hiding 😂) and life doesn’t always either. My motto is to seize the moment and try to live life to the fullest in whatever stage you’re in. . . The Great Sand Dunes - we made it right after a cold snap blew in. The dunes were wet so we didn’t get to sled down them (totally bummed!) They are still such a marvel. The park has a junior ranger program so our kiddos were still thrilled to get a wooden junior ranger badge that smelled like camp fire! You can see us bundled up like the Michelin man in order to get out on the dunes if you swipe. 😂😂 Just keeling it real. . . . . . . . . #realmotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #motherhoodinthetrenches #nationalparks #juniorranger #homeschoolmom #homeschoolfieldtrip #momoffour #storytellingmama #motherhoodrising #mommyblog #roadschooling
Throw back Wednesday (?) to last month when my fiancé and I got to visit the Grand Canyon. Actually cannot believe how incredible this place is. Pictures don’t do it justice. * * I was able to save myself some money by buying a kids hat. Small head for the win 👍 (also, the adult hats were just too big for me 🤣🤣) * * #traveller #grandcanyon #arizona #lasvegas #grandcanyonsouthrim #ketosuzi #suziskitchen #travellingcouple #coupleswhotravel #adventurer #ketogirl #explorer #juniorranger #kidshat #smallhead #grandcanyonnationalpark #southrim

Throwback to watching a #blackcappedchickadee get banded by an #ornithologist . My junior ornithologists were allowed to release the birds after banding. #birds #juniorranger #nature #science #explore #nikon
Aug 19 (Day 11) By the time our cave tour's done, rain stopped👍 Earned another Junior Ranger badge✨ 8月19日(キャンプ旅行11日目) 洞窟ツアーが終わる頃には雨もあがって、新しいバッジも獲得。また1つコレクションが増えました👍 #windcavenationalpark #NPS #juniorranger #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #boy #7yearsold #juniorrangerbadge #beautiful #lovemyson #raisingboys #ウィンドケイブ国立公園 #バッジ #ジュニアレンジャー #おとこのこ #7歳 #夏休み #summerbreak #家族旅行 #偶然 #ハーフキッズ #ハーフ男子 #親バカ部 #課外学習 #楽しい #よくがんばりました 💮
Aug 19 (Day 11) One of the best place to stay dry when it's raining outside!? Most of cave tours tickets were sold out around noon! Glad we got ours and explored in the cave😊 Best thing happened this day was...a ranger who gave us the cave tour was the same ranger when we visited Lewis and Clark Caverns in MT 1.5 years ago!! Can't wait to see who will give us the tour when we visit some other cave😁 8月19日(キャンプ旅行11日目) ウィンドケイブ国立公園。当日は雨が降り続き、目的地が洞窟の国立公園で良かった! というか、そのせいもあってか人も多く、夕方の回まである洞窟ツアーのチケットもお昼頃には完売😣 我が家は2時間後のチケットを入手でき無事ツアーに参加することが出来ました。 ガイドのパークレンジャーが現れて何が驚いたって、1年半前にモンタナにあるルイス&クラーク大洞窟にツアーに行った時にガイドしてくれたレンジャーと同じ人だった!! 時間毎にレンジャーは変わるので、本当に偶然としかいいようかない。今度また他の洞窟ツアーに参加した時に同じ彼がガイドしてくれたらもう奇跡✨ #windcavenationalpark #NPS #juniorranger #nationalparkgeek #findyourpark #boy #7yearsold #cavetour #beautiful #lovemyson ##raisingboys #ウィンドケイブ国立公園 #洞窟ツアー #ジュニアレンジャー #おとこのこ #7歳 #夏休み #summerbreak #家族旅行 #偶然 #ハーフキッズ #ハーフ男子 #親バカ部 #課外学習 #楽しい

Montana was the first state we fell in love with while we were on our State Tour. Those big Montana skies drew us in and Theodore Roosevelt National Park sealed the deal. We were hooked. We’d never been to a #nationalpark before. We had the best time exploring TRNP and the boys got their very first #juniorranger badge! We fell hard for National Parks. We’ve made it our mission to visit as many NPS units as we can. We’ve been to over 100 so far! #ourrvtriprewind #ourrvtrip #exploreamerica #rvlife #rv #familytravel #fulltimerv #nomad #wanderlust #usinterior #nationalparkgeek #nationalparkobsessed #findyourpark #getoutside #makingmemories #theodorerooseveltnationalpark #montanaskies #montana
Manning the front desk today at the monument. Come on by and I'll give you the oath to become a junior ranger! #NPS #findyourpark #juniorranger #navajonationalmonument #thisismyjob #parkranger
Became a #juniorranger at the birthplace of my favorite president, TR. #nps #nyc
These two fight like cats and dogs sometimes, but they are each other's best friend. We took a lovely trip to Cumberland Island this year for my daughter's birthday. My kids especially loved the beach and the copious amounts of shells, the possibility of seeing wild horses, and were fascinated with all the dung beetles in action. The fact that there was a junior ranger book to complete was icing on the cake. #cumberlandisland #coastalgeorgia #wildandfreechildren #juniorranger #adventureswithchildren #letthemexplore #outdooradentures #raisethemwild #outdoorkids #getoutside #wildexplorersclub #familytravel #familyadventures #learnthroughadventure
Aug 18 (Day 10) One day is not enough to explore this beautiful Custer State Park. Definitely will come back and hopefully we can camp in this park⛺❤ Junior Ranger (Junior Naturalist) patch was out back then, he received a cool patch a month later👍 This education center was really nice and my boy would play all day if we have no time limit (ugly clouds were approaching to our campsite...) 8月18日(キャンプ旅行10日目) カスター州立公園inサウスダコタ。とても大きくて綺麗で1日では足りない!! 本当はここでキャンプやりたかったのだけど、人気の場所なので、かなーり早いうちから予約が必要みたい。残念。でもまた近いうちに来るぞー! ちなみにパッチは山火事で作業する消防士。ご苦労様です。 学習センターも本当に素敵な場所で、時間が許せばうちの子は閉館時間まで遊んでたと思う😁 ただ、我が家のキャンプサイトの雲行きが怪しくなってきたので泣く泣く足早に帰ったのです😢 #custerstatepark #southdakota #statepark #juniorranger #juniornaturalist #summerbreak #familytrip #boy #lovemyson #beautifulnature #explorer #7yearsold #nature #カスター州立公園 #サウスダコタ #アメリカ生活 #ハーフ男子 #ハーフキッズ #おとこのこ #家族旅行 #夏休み #やり残し #7歳 #自然 #息子大好き #親バカ部 #ジュニアレンジャー

Natural Bridges National Park Utah. The kids also did their duty and got their Junior Rangers badge for the parks. #juniorranger #naturalbridges #nationalparks #hikingwithkids #hikingfamily #hiking #roadtripusa #trailoftheancients #utah
Memories from this summer 2018. Our third visit in 2 years, 2 months spent in total camping here. this is where our journey of the National Parks began. Thank you to the fab ranger Ellen at #yellowstonenationalpark who inspired us to do the junior ranger programs...now 96 badges later, still not about the badge but the place inside we find each and every time we connect with this earth we call home, the glory and wonder of our #nationalparks #home #tetons #travelingfamily #gooutside #findyourpark #optoutside #vanlife #grandtetonnationalpark #nature #juniorranger #enjoyyourkids #dontwait #ritanaomi @ellen_virginia
The girls. 👩‍👩‍👧 My sister came down from Oklahoma for my stepmomma’s birthday at the end of September. We don’t get to see each other so we took the opportunity to get cute photos of the all the cousins. 😍 . . . #photo #photogoals #photography #photooftheday #family #familyreunion #familygoals #cousins #love #happy #blackandwhitephotography #blackandwhite #waco #wacotexas #dallas #dallasphotographer #dfw #dfwphotographer #bridge #juniorranger #mammoth #mammothdigsite #conservation #conservationist

I love how Laila’s dress is an exact copy of the flowers we were standing in...you can barely see her💐
Here’s to the Junior Ranger days as we see many opportunities as part of #lucassouth18 ! Missing @sethplucas @simplylivingforawhile and @jonahplucas ! And fyi ... you can now be a WebRanger ... something to think about! #nationalparks #juniorranger #webranger
Took a beautiful drive through Acadia this weekend, it was peak foliage season but also rainy and cloudy- still fun even if the views were obscured. #acadianationalpark #maine #barharbor #nps #fallfoliage #juniorranger #acadia #travel #findyourpark #rvlife #rvliving #fulltimerv
First of all, wavy old glass reflects sun like my underwater dreams. Second, we were so excited to find out about the Junior Ranger National Parks Program! Effigy Mounds had the most wonderful Ranger, she made sure we got some booklets and directed us on an awesome hike, even though we were late to the lodge. And there is nothing cuter than the boys’ drawings of the park badge😸 Can’t wait to get our first patch in the mail!!! . . . #nationalpark #effigymounds #effigymoundsnationalmonument #juniorranger #juniorrangerkids #juniorparkranger #weloveournationalparks #explore
Day 2 : Junior ranger of Lassen Volcanic National Park #rithikaraj #juniorrangerbadges #lassenvolcanicnationalpark #manzanita #juniorranger #earnedit
Another visit to National Park using the Every Kid in a Park Pass! Trying to hit many National Parks while we have this pass. Kids got another Junior Ranger Badge and a cancellation stamp. It’s so much fun visiting and learning new things together! 子供達と再び国立公園へ。新しいバッジとスタンプがコレクションに加わりました。 #deathvalley #deathvalleynationalpark #nationalpark #everykidinapark #juniorranger #デスバレー #デスバレー国立公園 #日帰りの旅
Aug 17 (Day 9) One of the best place to do Junior Ranger pledge✨ 8月17日(キャンプ旅行9日目) 毎回、アクティビティブックが終わってバッジをもらう時にプレッジと言われる約束事のようなものの宣誓をパークレンジャーと一緒にするんだけど、今回の宣誓は大統領の彫刻がバックという壮大な景観もおまけについてきて見てて楽しかった😊 #mountrushmore #mtrushmorenationalmemorial #NPS #nationalmemorial #mountrushmorenationalmemorial #juniorranger #juniorranger #juniorrangerpatch #nationalparkgeek #southdakota #summerbreak #family #raisingboys #mixedkid #7yearsold #マウントラッシュモア #サウスダコタ #夏休み #家族旅行 #おとこのこ #ハーフ男子 #ハーフキッズ #バッジ #パッチ #息子大好き #親バカ部
Junior Astronomer at the Lowell Observatory and Junior Ranger at the Grand Canyon! Most National Parks have a free Junior Ranger program if you ask. Michael loved completing both programs! #lowellobservatory #juniorastronomers #juniorranger #learnthroughtravel #kidswhotravel #sciencekids #familytravel
Hate to admit this but up until 2 days ago I had never heard of Lassan Volcanic National Park. But since we were in the area we thought we’d check it out. Well worth a visit. Scenery, hiking, geology and history all wrapped up into an easy to do one day visit. What National Parks have you “discovered ?” #lassanvolcanicnationalpark #bluebirdskies #roadschool #juniorranger #truckcamper #truckcamperlife 📍Atsugwei, Maidu, Yahi, Yana Territory
Aug 17 (Day 9) Visited Mount Rushmore National Memorial before heading to that night's campsite. Took a short hike on the way to parking and so refreshed😊 8月17日(キャンプ旅行9日目) 「4人の大統領の顔が岩に彫刻されてる」でお馴染みのマウントラッシュモア国立記念碑に。 何度も写真で見てるので、これといった感動はなかったけど、作る過程のビデオを見てる方が興味深かった。時間をかけて長いトレイルを歩きたかったけど、早く帰りたい人がいるので断念😩 やっぱりまた来たい。 #mountrushmore #NPS #nationalmemorial #mountrushmorenationalmemorial #juniorranger #nationalparkgeek #southdakota #summerbreak #family #raisingboys #mixedkid #7yearsold #lucky #マウントラッシュモア #サウスダコタ #夏休み #家族旅行 #おとこのこ #ハーフ男子 #ハーフキッズ #息子大好き #親バカ部
After @bandeliernationalmonument we headed up the road to @vallescaldera for a quick hike and #juniorranger . We learned about the ancient super volcano, lake, mineralized soils and inverse treeline. #neverstoplearning #findyourranger #findyourpark #optoutside 🌲 #loveyourparks (but not to death).
Wedding planning is over so @snew_pants and I took off for #bandeliernationalmonument and checked out some puebloan sites and hikes. Met Ranger Jason who is a bigger #juniorranger nerd than even us (hard to do). #findyourranger #findyourpark #optoutside 🌲
These are the Junior Ranger badges we collected this year from our time in Nevada, Utah, New York, and D.C. I don’t think we will be visiting any more NPS in the US this year. We actually spent a good part of this year in Canada and visited several national parks, monuments, and historical sites there. Their junior program is called Xplorers and the kids completed a few of them. I think we’ve done enough history for the year, lol! But of course, the field trips will continue and the learning never stops. . . . . . #unworkingfamily #unschoolingmoments #unschoolingkids #unschoolingfamily #unschoolinglookslikethis #unschoolers #unschoolingadventures #theworldisourclassroom #worldschooling #fieldtripeveryday #classroomwithoutwalls #unschoolinglife #unschooling #learningallthetime #alwayslearning #homeeducation #homeschooling #homeschoollife #unschoolingdays #lifewithoutschool #learningwithoutschool #juniorrangerbadge #juniorranger #nps #globetrotter

Theo recited the @fl.stateparks Junior Range pledge today! We had no clue that the State Parks have a program of their own, so this is pretty exciting news. Thank you, Ranger Cabral of @historicbarnacle for making him official! . . . #flstateparks #statepark #juniorranger #newlyminted #juniorrangerbadge #nature #wildlife #getoutside
Capitol Reef sometimes overlooked when touring Utah’s National Parks. Totally worth the detour. If you just stop by, Hickman’s Bridge is a great hike. Make sure to walk along the petroglyphs! We especially loved picking fruit in the orchards. The junior ranger program is totally achievable in a day visit. Thank you to all the amazing rangers! @capitolreefnps thank you for treating us so well. #capitolreefnationalpark #juniorranger #notsojuniorrangers #utahnationalparks

His imagination was captured by these trenches left from the Civil War. When he couldn't take his picture in the trench, he posed with his imaginary musket instead.

No salmon spotted, but Metro gained 2 new junior rangers at Oxbow Park yesterday! Colt will help you avoid any poison oak within 2 miles of the trail, and Jack will always attempt to lead you off the trail. But you’ll always have a good time on a hike with them! #getoutside #oxbowpark #juniorranger #protecttheforest #momlife
Grand Tetons National Park and Yellowstone treated us well last week! It’s my heaven on Earth. #yellowstonepledge #fallfoliage #familyvacation #nationalparkobsessed #juniorranger #bison #geyser #tetons
Some of the flowers are still clinging to Summer. I don’t mind if they stay just a little longer 🧡🌻
From our favorite trail, Storm Point Trail @yellowstonenps 🌲🏞 We initially planned to buy a hiking toddler backpack carrier for this trip, but our little one refused to get on it when we went to try it on @rei 😱 So instead, we took our toddler carrier from @kindercarry with us and it worked perfectly fine on our trails. #StormPointTrail is 2.3mile trail that goes through forest, lake side, and a field and this drastic change of sceneries makes it so worth the walk🐾 We saw a lot of animal tracks and scats and actually ran into a bison who was having his dinner 🍴 on our way out. 🐻 #YokohamaYukoinYellowStone #YYinYSDay2 #Miniyokohamayuko 🍁 #GrantVillage #yellowstonetrail #trails #yellowstonesouthentrance #Kinderpack #kinderpackcrew #juniorranger
Aug 17 (Day 9) Still uploading our camp trip during summer break😁 We were just planning to visit Wall Drug Store, SD on our way to next destination and then the attractive sign came into my eyes❤ It was one of "big hit" spot for my son and he learned a lot about grasslands👍 8月17日 (夏のキャンプ旅行9日目) まだ夏のキャンプ旅行記続いてます😅 バッドランド国立公園を後にし、次の目的地へ行く途中でウォール•ドラッグストアという観光スポットに寄りたいとうちの夫が言ったところ、パーキングの近くに楽しそうな場所を発見。日本語でどう訳すか分からないけど、国立草地案内所みたいな感じの場所。全くのノーマークだったので嬉しかったー。そしてアクティビティブックを終えてバッジ以外にもスモーキーベアのグッズをたくさん頂けたのが何よりも👍👍👍 #nationalgrasslands #wallsouthdakota #nationalforest #smokey #smokeythebear #juniorranger #badge #learning #lovemyson #mixedkid #boy #bedhair #summerbreak #夏休み #旅行記 #家族旅行 #サウスダコタ #おとこのこ #男子育児 #小学生 #ハーフ男子 #ハーフキッズ #バッジ #スモーキーベア #7歳 #息子大好き #親バカ部 #寝癖
“Adventure is out there.” The big point that the staff at Salem Maritime wants to make with the junior ranger program is that Salem Maritime NHS and other NPS sites are owned by the people, that they belong to each of us. Which NPS site is your favorite to explore? What big adventure do you dream of experiencing through the National Park Service? #notsojuniorrangers #explorelearnprotect #salemmaritimenationalhistoricsite #juniorranger #optoutside #forthebenefitandenjoymentofthepeople
