Welcome to Big Family Adventures!  My name is Laura and I met my sweet hubby, Aaron, in 1995 when we were students at Mid-Atlantic Christian University.  And now here we are:  three apartments, three houses, two states, multiple jobs, and five kids later!

We have three biological daughters and two adopted sons and although they make our lives loud and crazy and busy, we can’t imagine life any other way.  Big Family Adventures is about enjoying life with a lot of kids and a little bit of money.  Adventures don’t have to be extravagant and costly to be fun and memorable!   Thanks for stopping by!


And because I have to, here’s a bunch of legal jargon.


Please know that I am not an expert on anything.  Like, anything.  Hiking, kayaking, camping, nutrition, running, fitness . . . I’m not an expert on any of that.  If you are inspired to try a new activity after reading my blog please remember you do so at your own risk. 

Sometimes I talk about essential oils because our family can’t live a day without them.  However, any statements made on this website about Young Living essential oils have not been evaluated by the FDA.  These products and information are not intended to diagnose, treat, cure, or prevent any disease.  Please consult a physician with any concerns about your health.  (Remember what I said?  I’m not an expert!)
