Meet the Mamas Behind the Scenes at Kids Who Explore!
Adrianna, her husband, and young son Turner live in a farmhouse with their french bulldog and small herd of pot belly pigs (yep, pigs!). Although Adrianna used to adventure anywhere and any time, the birth of her son opened her eyes to the magic of the little moments. She feels it’s so important for every adventure-loving mama to know that having a baby is just the beginning–not the end–of adventurous moments!

Growing up, Elaina was taught to love and respect all animals and the outdoors. Her family could often be found hunting and fishing. Elaina’s favourite memory was when her dad took her mushing, where she vividly remembers stargazing and hearing nothing but the footsteps of the dogs.

Rowan spent her 2020 maternity leave hiking, biking, swimming, road tripping, and camping… all with Stevie in-tow! She has learned that adventures take many forms and as a parent she just has to adjust her expectations. “As your children grow and change, so do your adventures!”
