Meet the Dillon Family

Our family is passionate about living a simple, intentional life with less stuff and more of what matters; the things that cannot be bought. We value spending time together and focus on encouraging Connor’s love for the outdoors.

From the time Connor started walking at 7 1/2 months, he would ask in his own ways to be outside (at that young of an age, this meant being near the door and making sounds and motions until we all went outside). When he was an infant, we naturally spent a lot of time outside to help calm him down; fresh air and a nice breeze along with movement in a baby carrier always seemed to do the trick. Or maybe he inherited his love of nature from Jerry, who is always on the hunt for the next big and exciting backpacking/camping trip. Whatever the reason – we couldn’t be happier that Connor enjoys being outside more than in, that he loves exploring new places and is always up for a new adventure.

We moved from Lexington, Kentucky to a suburb outside of Salt Lake City, Utah when he was 13 months old. We knew that Utah would be a wonderful place to raise Connor with endless opportunities in nature to discover. We have been here for a little over 3 years and while we’ve done a lot, it feels like we’ve barely scratched the surface!

We are excited to share all of our adventures here. Until next time, you will find us in our natural state; wake.explore.repeat!

  1. Love this! It’s hard to believe you’ve been in Utah that long. You definitely have a little adventurer and I look forward to hearing about your “travels”! Donna


    1. Aww thank you! I know, time flies when you’re having fun (or having fun and lacking sleep, or both)! Hah!! Our next post will be the first time we attempted camping and then all the successful trips after that 😊 We hope to be caught up in the next couple weeks so we can keep track more efficiently then!
