About the Careys

We are a family of five embarking on new adventures. This summer, our adventure is camping in our little teardrop trailer from Braxton Creek. We love being outdoors, being cozy indoors, enjoying God’s creation and enjoying each other.

We (Ryan and Abby) met at a small private college in the suburbs of Chicago. Between ROTC for Ryan and DIII volleyball for Abby, we spent what little free time we had courting each other and absolutely smitten with one another. Upon graduation, Ryan started his military career and shortly moved to Georgia. A year later, Abby graduated and they married in the foothills of the Rocky Mountains.

Ryan was an Army brat but mostly grew up in the suburbs of Chicago. He completed his own service in the Army just over two years ago and now works at a marketing agency in Colorado. Abby works in marketing part-time, but her time is also taken up with wrangling 3 kids: one-year-old Rose, almost four year old Karl and five year old Lucy. Our oldest, though, is a furry buddy named Boomer who just turned nine!

So far, parent life has had highs and lows, but is overall it is the greatest thing that has ever happened to us. Our hearts are full and our lives are rich and we recognize that God has blessed us more abundantly than we could ever deserve. We want to raise grateful kids that are loving and kind and love Jesus. This next adventure for us is exciting as we look forward to spending quality time together, unplugged, and focused on each other in the beautiful nature that surrounds us.

We are passionate about budget-friendly family activities and can’t wait to share our travels with you!
