The edge is a space that each of us get to define. The boundaries of our lives are ours to set. When we consciously raise our children to healthily discover, test, push and break theirs - we believe we’re doing it right. How do you all discover the boundaries as a family? #momentexchange
All smiles on his first hike up a mountain.
Collected some pretty great Fall treasures on our walk. 🍁🐿🍂

"I don't like either the word [hike] or the thing. People ought to saunter in the mountains - not 'hike!' Do you know the origin of that word saunter? It's a beautiful word. Away back in the middle ages people used to go on pilgrimages to the Holy Land, and when people in the villages through which they passed asked where they were going they would reply, 'A la sainte terre', 'To the Holy Land.' And so they became known as sainte-terre-ers or saunterers. Now these mountains are our Holy Land, and we ought to saunter through them reverently, not 'hike' through them." - John Muir
Hot springs at the Alvord desert. Couldn't be any better. Here waiting a little bit to make it decently enjoyable, it was waaaaay too hot (what an oxymoron) but yeah, it was scolding hot🔥

Who doesn't love 75 degree weather and blue skies? That's what we're dealing with in Vegas these days, which means it's the perfect time for a hike in Red Rock Canyon.

I love his determination, his drive, his will, his independence. It might be hard teaching him as a mom, but the last thing I want to do is force him to lose those wonderful life traits. I have a feeling nothing will get in his way. I’m learning to cultivate that and not stifle it. #neverstoptrying
How young is too young for a child to go camping?
I am EXTREMELY happy to be the undeserving guy who this little girl calls "daddy"! Her name is Emrie, she and her baby brother, Liam Eilis, are the epitome of what the perfect children for me would be...obviously, a bit biased there.
Here she is, the early bird, at 8months old in the Cheaha mountain in Alabama on a 3k mile 2 week roadtrip. She's been an adventurer since she was in mommy's belly! At 7months pregnant, Shell, momma, who I think loves adventures more than I do 😅 climbed to the peak of the highest mountain in OK. during a 5k mile roadtrip through, Texas, Oklahoma, Colorado, Utah, Arizona and New Mexico!
Kiddo, you've got my support! 👍😅
