Our YouTube Family Video Series Now Has 22 Episodes

I have to be honest, I didn’t know it would last as long as it has

We started our family video series in April/May of 2020 as a Covid family hobby, and 22 episodes later, we are still shooting adventures, taking trips together as a family and loving spending our time together.

We’ve gotten up close and personal with baby foxes, baby owls, baby raccoons, baby deer, bugs, birds and butterflies. We’ve explored the nature around us, and even delved into the supernatural. We visit bridges, both abandoned and still in use, had a picnic in a ghost town, took our new raft boat out for a test drive, dig into history and just revel in the magic that unfolds.

We visit locations in the tri-state area (Pennsylvania, New Jersey and New York), and spend hours a week researching new spots to uncover. We love the opportunities we get to explore the area and spend time together as a family.

There is so much dark stuff out there, ready and willing to penetrate our minds and our hearts, and one reason we made this series was to put something out into the world that was simply easy, gentle, fun, kind and pleasurable. Our series isn’t politically leaning (although if you watch enough episodes, you may see some cookies sprinkled here and there that will let you know which way our bread is buttered), it has no real agenda other than to be fun and sweet, offers laughs, education and pretty things to look at and is totally family-friendly, for most families, that is.

We don’t have a ton of subscribers yet (only about 100), so all the revenue brought in from advertising funds the big businesses that can afford to advertise. If you subscribe to our channel and help us get to 1000 viewers, we can begin to make a small profit on our videos.
