Jennifer Auer is a hyperlocal mom blogger from New Jersey who can’t sit still. Her husband likes to say she’s a work-at-home mom who never stays home. Jennifer started traveling as a child and hasn’t stopped. She doesn’t let her husband and three boys slow her down. Instead, she brings them along, believing boys behave better when they are out exploring. As her boys start to become teens there are still so many places she wants to discover with them both across the United States and internationally. Together on family adventures, they’ve learned to ski the slopes, kayak along the Chesapeake Bay, dig at an archaeological site, make chocolate by hand at a chocolate factory, and climb a stairway to heaven. There may be no stopping them. Jennifer created and manages Jersey Family Fun, a blog and resource site where her and other moms blog about how to have family fun in New Jersey and the surrounding area.
