Have you ever considered a Dude Ranch as a family vacation?  If not, I highly recommend you do. 🤠  We recently partnered with White Stallion Ranch in Tucson to enjoy their luxury accommodations mixed with a real-life Wild Wild West experience.  Each day the ranch provides activities for guests like horseback riding, shooting, archery, UTV rides, massages, e-bikes, hiking, swimming, and even rodeos. On property, you'll also receive three meals a day.  Here on the ranch, your family will unplug from technology and plug into the here and now. Together you can participate in cattle penning, all-day horseback rides, evening entertainment, or just sit poolside with a prickly pear margarita. You choose your activities; as many or as few as you'd like.  Make your next family adventure unforgettable with @whitestallionranchaz        #bigbravenomad #hosted #duderanch #whitestallionranch #tucson #visittucson #desertlife #desertliving #cowboylife #wildwildwest #travelusa #ranchlife #lifeontheranch #arizonalife #rodeostyle #americanroadtrip #roadtripusa #gltlove #middleamerica #kidswhotravel #familytravel #travelwithkids #tucsonarizona #arizona🌵 #tucsonaz

👨‍👩‍👧‍👦 How about a Sunday family intro?  There are a lot of new faces here, so Hi! 👋🏼 I’m Tavia - the mama Nomad - Jimmy is the dad and we’ve been married for 9.5 years. We met way back in college. I love travel, wine, breakfast burritos, Virginia Tech & my family. I also think I’m hilarious. 😂 I started this space when my first born was an infant and as a place for other parents and travelers to come for inspiration, advice and to collaborate on trips! This community has grown to more than I could imagine it would be.  Charletta (5) + Latham (4) are the little nomads and the real MVP’s of our adventures.  We are a US military family, so I do a lot of solo travel with the kids when my husband can’t join us. We’ve trekked with the kids to 23 countries & 37 U.S. States. We have a old 1991 Ford Fiesta Campervan named Uncle Rico and a passion for U.S. National Parks. As of now, we have visited 29 of the 61 with the kids.  I love chatting about all things travel & kids, so feel free to DM me anytime with questions & check our website/blog! (Link in Bio!)  OH and don’t forget to join my Solo Mom Travel community on Facebook: a place for solo traveling moms to connect!  Help me get to know you: 👉🏼 Would you rather go camping or stay in a hotel? 🏕 🏨   ———————————— ❤️ T, J, C & L 📍: Garrapata State Park 📸: @annemariesphotography        #bigbravenomad #babycantravel #takethekids #bringthekids #toddlertravels #familytravelblogger #tripswithkids #travelfamily #momswhotravel #mumsinphotos #toddlertravel #travelbrood #levartmaf #travfamlife #unsettledown #gltlove #familytravel #militaryfamily #garrapatastatepark #bigsur #visitcalifornia #utahunique #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #optoutside #montereyphotographer #centralcoast #calicoast #californiaphotographer #visitmonterey

“We grow when things are hard.” 🌵 I saw this quote about cacti and it’s completely relatable for 2020. 🌵 Fun facts about the Saguaro Cactus: - Lifespan: 150-200 years - They grow very slowly, but can grow up to 40-60 feet tall. - Saguaros roots are only 4-6 inches deep and radiate out as far from the plant as it is tall - A saturated Saguaro can weigh up to 3200-4800 lbs!! - These cacti grow in the Sonoran Desert from Arizona to Mexico - Saguaros are covered with protective spines, white flowers in the late spring, and red fruit in summer. - By 95-100 years in age, a saguaro cactus can reach a height of 15-16 feet, and could start to produce its first arm 👉🏼 Have you had any “Grow when things are hard” moments recently?🌵 #bigbravenomad #saguaro #saguaronationalpark #visitarizona #visittucson #tucsonarizona #saguarocactus #sonorandesert #deserthike #kidswhohike #travelwithkids #nationalparkgeek #nationalparklife #explorethewild #azwildlife #explorearizona #desertvibes #gltlove #levartmaf

✨ Gratitude (noun): the quality of being thankful; readiness to show appreciation for and to return kindness. ✨ I’ve been seeing so many grateful posts here on Instagram. It’s incredibly refreshing to see positive posts on social media. This year has been constant negativity - on the news, on these platforms, & in conversation. So much finger pointing, so much outrage, and perpetual negativity. It has been exhausting. Today, I am grateful for this week’s gratefulness. I’m grateful for the days I’ve gotten to see my family, for my family’s health, I am grateful for the children in my arms, for our reliable income, for my family here on Instagram, I’m grateful to live in the United States with the privileges and rights we have and extra grateful for those defending those freedoms away from their families this Thanksgiving. 👉🏼👉🏼 Instead of sharing something your grateful for here, is there some way you’re giving back? I’d love to know all the creative ways I can get involved to help others who may be less fortunate this season. #bigbravenomad #gratefuleveryday #thanksgiving2020 #cuyahogavalleynationalpark #cuyahogavalley #visitohio #thisiscle #cleveland #giveback #lifteachotherup #gratefulmindset #nationalparkgeek #ilovenationalparks #kidswhotravel #travelwithkids #familytravel #nevergrowup #nationalparksusa #nationalparklife

🦃 Thanksgiving Week 🍖 Here in the USA it’s the week of Thanksgiving. 🌽 Usually it’s a manic week of last minute food prep, recipe scrounging, organizing cute outfits, & lots of family time. This year I know so many thanksgiving dinners will be different. 👉🏼 Have you ever read the true history of Thanksgiving? It’s much more complicated and darker than a happy dinner between Pilgrims and Native Americans. The famous Thanksgiving dinner in 1621 lasted for 3 days and the Wampanoag Tribe wasn’t actually invited....they came because they heard the pilgrims shooting their guns and thought they were in battle with someone. (The Wampanoag Tribe had a mutual-defense pact with the Pilgrims) After some confusion & explanation of celebrating breaking a long fast, the Wampanoag Tribe members stayed and ate with the Pilgrims. If you don’t know much about America’s history and the relationship between European Settlers in America and Native Americans - I think this is a good of a week as any to learn the truth about these “thanksgivings.” (yes there were more than one) They may not be what you thought. #bigbravenomad #pilgrims #thanksgivingdinner #thanksgivingfood #thanksgivingrecipes #truethanksgivingstory #thanksgiving🦃 #americanthanksgiving #knowyourhistory #thanksgivingprep #americanhistory #tucson #visitaz #arizonadesert #visittucson #whitestallionranch #travelwithkids #duderanch

🔌 Unplugged 🔌 Wow! I’ve been mostly unplugged for the past week and it’s felt SO good. No editing photos, no pressure on myself for curating stories or grid posts, very few email exchanges. Just time with family and, WOW, - it’s felt so good. Sometimes I wish we could go back to pre-social media days. 👉🏼 What do you miss most about the pre-cell phone days? I miss home phones & Friday nights perusing Blockbuster 🎥 I’ll be getting back to sharing our adventures more consistently soon. But thank you for riding out the radio silence with me. 💕 #bigbravenomad #joshuatree #joshuatreenationalpark #familytravel #familytime❤️ #unplugged #mentalreset #selfcarefirst #bepresentinthemoment #unsettledown #levartmaf #bepresent #socal #sunriseoftheday #sunrisehike

🚨 Debate: Pancakes 🥞 or French Toast 🍞 How about neither? 😉 For me, breakfast is all about the breakfast burrito. It’s my favorite food on planet Earth. For real, I could eat breakfast burritos for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Sausage beats bacon, but I’m not too choosy; they are all delicious. But if I was being forced to choose between pancakes and French Toast - pancakes win every time. French toast is just soggy bread and I really hate wet bread. 📍 @montereyplaza #bigbravenomad #seemonterey #montereyplazahotel #montereybay #visitcalifornia #californiadreaming #californialove #thisiscalifornia #montereyfieldtrip #backtocali #travelfamily #luxurytravels #brunchvibes #oceanviews #levartmaf #gltlove #travelmadfam #kidswhotravel #hotellife @seemonterey

Love is like a butterfly: It goes where it pleases and it pleases wherever it goes. -Author Unknown  In a world of constant judgment, constant outrage, constant shaming, constant hypocrisy & constant noise — here’s a pretty picture of a butterfly to bring a second of happiness + positivity. (swipe to see the second one)  These are my favorite two nature shots I may have ever taken. 🦋  📍@dbgphx       #bigbravenomad #butterflies #desertbotanicalgarden #mightymonarchs #monarchbutterfly #spreadpositivity #lovenotfear #visitphoenix #naturephotograph #natureshot #naturalworld #butterflyphotography #butterflybeauty #butterfly #ourtempe
