Global Parenting, Better Living – with a Gay Twist
Gay couples with kids are like everyone else. We love each other unconditionally. Our family also loves to share stories about our lives and travels. We do so with equally open hearts - no matter their culture. We've learned most everyone wants the same things: the love of family and friends, happy lives, peace of mind. By meeting in the middle, we start to change the world.

Taking road trips is a regular tradition for our family. We’ve been taking them for years from our home base of San Diego. The most stressful part? Entertaining family on road trips.
Meet the Bailey-Klughs
When our daughter Sophia wrote a letter to President Obama at 10 years old…
…it started a worldwide sensation that set our family on a course of amazing adventures. We’ve met many interesting people along the way that wanted to hear our stories, stories about two dads raising two daughters in today’s crazy and wonderful world. So we started this blog!
Jon likes exploring far away places, home cooked meals like his Sicilian mama used to make, John Varvatos, and a front-of-the-line pass to just about anything.
Triton likes Starbucks venti black iced tea with double pumps classic, eating at restaurants (any, really), comfy t-shirts and Jason Bourne.
Sophia likes Red Vines, scary movies, clothes shopping and Justin Bieber (still). Oh, and boys. She really likes the boys.
Ava likes vampire romances, cookie dough, ironic t-shirts from 80s rock bands, and cuddly animals of any species.
Global Adventures and
Parenting Around the World
We’re travel junkies, and have been to more than 15 countries together,
Oh, and a ton of great places across the beautiful United States as well.
We Are Storytellers
Visiting other places around the globe helps us see the bigger picture: that our lives are part of a much greater community made up of people just like us, only completely different. The space between is what truly matters, and our little family enjoys the exploration.See all Videos
