Adventure Stories

adventure time

I’m a Colorado girl. I’ve got adventure in my heart. The kind that loves travels, far off paces, weekends away and also hikes, exploring near by, and afternoons in the sun. Some adventures require months of planning while others only need a couple hours one afternoon for a little exploring. My dad instilled that in me! We would plan and pack for family road trips & vacations but we would also walk to the park for a picnic. Adventures can be the little and the big things.

There are these really cool rocks right near my parents house. Like we drive (and walk) past them all the time. It is crazy all the beauty that is literally in our backyard. I remember as a kid we would take walks to the park to play on the rocks and run thought the fields. It was an afternoon of adventure just a walk away. I have so many memories of those little things my dad made sure to do with us – like park adventures, camping, & thrift shopping (totally an adventure in itself 😉 )

Father’s Day is coming up and it is just the time to celebrate with all those adventures! Maybe your family takes an annual camping trip for Father’s day or you grill out in your backyard – whatever it is, celebrate those adventures! And celebrate them with Stanley Brand.

Becoming a father means more than just having a child. It means becoming an example to someone else every day. This Father’s Day, let’s show dads, granddads, husbands, even uncles – some respect for leading by example and being positive male role models! Make time to thank the man that helped make you you – maybe that is not your biological father and maybe it is. But there is a father figure that encouraged you, loved you, and made you who you are today. Thank him. And if your dad is an adventure seeker like mine, give the gift of Stanleyness. Make memories and do cool things.

  • Every day can 100% be an adventure. Michael and I have been trying to do better at not just talking about stuff we want to do and only doing some of it, but being intentional and planning it out (or not planning it out.) Like if we remember a recipe we’ve been wanting to try just as we’re getting leftovers out of the fridge we ask ourselves if the leftovers will still be good if we split them up for lunch tomorrow. Yes? Let’s run to the store, grab the ingredients, and make that recipe tonight! Or if we’re craving a walk on the beach asking ourselves if we can rearrange the stuff we have going on that evening. Some adventures (like camping or visiting family) need to be planned out because those require travel and making sure other people are available, but I’m learning it doesn’t always have to be that hard. Sometimes the perfect moment is now; a lesson my planning and perfectionist self struggles with.

      I love this so so so much! I’m learning that too!

    I love this post, and the Stanley growler. We definitely don’t pack coffee in ours though lol

  • What I would have given to have grown up with big, climbable rocks near me!! The closest thing I had was building my own little platforms and ladders throughout the trees in the woods near me, ha! I love going out to the desert or mountains and climbing all over the big rocks like a big kid. 😀

    • Oak & Oats

      I love that you built ladders in trees! That is SO cool!

  • This is so awesome! Seriously, your hometown is so beautiful. Love all the rocks in your photos. I am a coffee fanatic and so is my dad. I will definitely have to try the Stanley stuff out! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    • Oak & Oats

      Thanks so much! YAY! Totally – he’ll love it!

  • That looks like so much fun! Colorado has been on my travel bucket list for awhile and I can’t wait to visit someday!

    • Oak & Oats

      YAY! Let me know when you do come visit!!!

  • I think you solved my question of what “Caleb” should get Nate for Father’s Day! <3

    • Oak & Oats

      Perfect! hahah!

  • “Becoming a father means more than having a child. It means becoming an example for someone else.” <– YES GIRL. SO MUCH YES.

      🙂 All the love for my dad and all those great dads out there!

  • This makes me smile–the adventure part and all the memories it brings back of being a kid. 🙂 Plus, those Stanley mugs are so cool! Haven’t seen them before, but I may have to check them out. For…my dad… 😉 B-)

    • Oak & Oats

      Hahahah! I love that! And yes – we love Stanley here in this house!

  • Great photos Beth! Isn’t fun to find the beauty in the place you live, the beauty that (sadly) often gets overlooked?

    • Oak & Oats

      Yes!
