The Saunders Family

Jenny Mathews, contributing writer 

Mykee Saunders and her husband, Paul, are the parents of four and love to travel with their “monkeys” as much as possible. Recently, Mykee decided to start a travel website, blog, and Facebook group to help other parents who would like to travel with their families but are nervous because, let’s be honest, a million things can go wrong! Mykee’s resources at Traveling With Monkeys help families plan confident, affordable, and meaningful experiences including staycations. You can also see lots of helpful tips, budget plans, and other financial advice, as well as fun stuff, like how to “find your family travel personality.”

Mykee’s passion for travel includes a deep desire to include serving others wherever they go. She loves to help her children see the world—not only for its beauty and adventures, but for its people. Visit, or search “traveling with kids” on Facebook and start planning the vacation your family is dreaming of!
