A perfectly safe West Coast activity? 🤷🏻‍♀️😬
Mornings with old friends in your old stomping grounds - 👌🏻👌🏻
Oh sweet paradise. This is what bliss looks like. I will be dreaming of this moment well into old age.
“Summer will end soon enough, and childhood as well.” George R. R. Martin, Game of Thrones Book 1 Scroll back in my IG feed and you will find a two year old photo that gave us the inspiration to recreate it again. Now I’m hoping we can make this a tradition. ❤️ #Heartginashereephotography #clickinmoms #3redsandamomtog #indyphotographer #familyphotography #childhoodunplugged #kidsoftheoutdoors #kidsforreal #candidchildhood #sonyalpha #alphacollective #dearphotographer #letthekids #letthembelittle #brothers #summernights #childhoodmemories
Luna Bear - my majestic, fiercely loyal, completely neurotic, forever companion. Recently we took you to the vet for your annual exam. For the second time, we heard you were beginning to show signs of arthritis in your hips and then simultaneously, we were reassured that you are in the best shape of any dog your age they have seen. Your gray, although hard to see with your coat, shows more and more and I shiver at the thought of ever living life without you. I know, despite all my efforts to keep you young at heart, that there will come a day when we are unable to adventure together. If I’m being honest, I can’t really bring myself to think that all out - life without my best girl. So, for now, I’ll continue to love you. Fiercely, loyally, endlessly. Just as you have me for our whole lives. I’ll fill your days with fresh air, your favorite bones and as many belly rubs as I can muster. Heck, I’ll even help tell Summit to leave you be when you are just not feeling the playing anymore. I will put your butt in the van, despite you drooling all over it, and drive you out to the wildest of places where the wind plays in your hair and you smile that million dollar smile. Here’s to all we have to come - starting with our alpine lake trip this weekend. Let’s sleep out under the stars and experience just how beautiful this all can be. Love you, my sweet Luna Bear 🐾 . . . . . . . . . . #adventurekids #adventurefamily #familytrails #livelifeoutside #kidsoftheoutdoors #adventureparenting #outdoorfamilies #outdoorbloggers #goadventuretogether #runwildmychild #childrenofmountains #wildandbravelittles #wilderness_kids #lifehappensoutdoors #choosemountains #tinybigadventure #itsbetteroutside #packleashes #packleashesmodel #choosemountains #parentinginthewild #weneedmorewild #huskylove #huskylife #huskypuppy #huskiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #packleashes #packleashadventures #adventuredog #adventuredognation #adventuredogs
new memories in an old place ❤️ #kidsoftheoutdoors
“Like a plank of driftwood Tossed on the watery main, Another plank encountered, Meets, touches, parts again; So tossed, and drifting ever, On life's unresting sea, Men meet, and greet, and sever, Parting eternally.” Edwin Arnold Feature 📸 credit: @danzhang.photo Follow us and use the hashtag #runwildmychild to be featured.
Our first full day at @grandtetonnps clocked almost ten miles. We started the day at Jenny, String, and Leigh lakes. All gorgeous with beautiful views. We beat the crowds by getting there before ten. String was our favorite with calm shallow green/blue water. We took the string lake overlook trail to get views from above. It was a a really nice hike with beautiful views, and we picked and tried fresh huckleberries. When we finished the hike we had lunch and a wicked hail storm rolled in. So we headed back south to the Laurence Rockefeller Preserve to take the Lake Creek Trail to Phelps Lake. First of all the preserve is gorgeous and modern. The visitor center itself is something to see and the kids loved it. Activities and a cozy library area. The hike was beautiful up to the lake and followed along the water with waterfalls and wildflowers. Phelps lake is a perfect alpine blue lake with views all around. The kids and adults splashed around and watch a bald eagle fly by. We even were lucky enough to see a moose on the drove back to camp!
This looks so beautiful @taneill ! What a gorgeous view and that beach looks amazing 😍😍 keep tagging #kidsoftheoutdoors to be featured. Featured by @graymis
When you’re usually ‘the small one’ and you suddenly aren’t. ❤️ Leila is my tiny tot. She’s almost 10 and people guess she’s maybe 7 a lot of the time. My kids are small already, but about 2 years ago her growth rate slowed down and we’ve been to various specialists to try and nail down a reason, so that if there is anything in the natural we can do, we would. But so far, nothing has come up - which of course is a good thing, but she still wants to grow a little faster. So every night at bed we thank God that her body is growing healthy and strong. She never lets me forget. 🙌🏼 Any other mamas out there have a kiddo like this? . . . #lovelysquares #bestofmom #thehappynow #childhoodunplugged #seeksimplicity #summervibes #letthembelittle #letthekids #outdoorliving #kidsoftheoutdoors #flashesofdelight #adventuresofchildren #magicofchildhood #cameramama #candidchildhood #momtog #ourcandidlife #ohheymama #motherhoodsimplified #thesincerestoryteller #lovingtheordinarymoments #mytinymoments #oureverydaymoments #getaftergrateful
The oh-so-Sweet days of helping grandpa build things. I remember, as a kid, the pure excitement and joy that was built in my heart as I would spend time helping my dad in the backyard. I can’t help but feel the alike as I watch my son do the same with his grandpa. #generationsoflove #mamatowika . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . #grandpaandgrandson #memoriesinthemaking #myheart #letthemexplore #themagicofchildhood #childhoodeveryday #mymagicalmoments #heaventhrumylens #treasurelittlememories #runwildmychild #theartofchildhood #writeyouonmyheart #parenthoodmoments #motherhoodiscolorful #mynameismama #thejuggleisreal #lifeasmama #lifegivingsquares #messy_motherhood #inbeautyandchaos #petitejoys #seekmoments #littleelbows #subjectlight #enchantedchildhood #nestling #kidsoftheoutdoors #naturesplayground
Our only rainy day on the two week trip was in PEI and wow did it downpour! We drove around sightseeing until the rain finally stopped as we arrived at this beautiful beach. The boys ran full tilt up and down these shores and played on the stunning red rocks. The soil on the island is the same deep red colour which makes for a gorgeous contrast next to the green fields. . . . . . #wildandbravelittles #runwildmychild #familytrails #letthemexplore #optoutside #goadventuretogether #growingfromadventure #wildlittleadventurers #generationoutdoorexplore #exploremore #wildernessculture #lifeofadventure #getoutstayout #campingcollective #campoften #theadventurecalling #wildernessbabes #kidsoftheoutdoors #stayandwander #outdoorwomen #wildernessinmybackyard #curiouslittleexplorers #explorer_lifestyle #instagood10k #momentsinthesun #familyjaunts #timeoutsociety #adventuresofchildren #hellostoryteller #therebelliousstoryteller

If you haven’t heard of @petrifiedforestnps , @theamericanfieldtrip says you must add it to your family’s bucket list! “We didn’t know about Petrified Forest National Park before our trip and we went into our visit with no expectations. We ended up being blown away by the layered badlands, kid-friendly hiking, and the multi-colored petrified wood. There is a range of trails here, from interpretive loop trails to off-trail hikes along the badlands. We loved going off-trail to explore some of the ancient petroglyph sites. Because the petrified logs are extremely durable, the kids were free to touch and climb on the logs in off-trail areas, which was a fun change from the usual Look-But-Don’t-Touch policy around protected resources,” Madison Bowman says.⠀ .⠀ Have you had a chance to explore Petrified Forest NP with kids yet? If so, we’d love to hear about your experience too! Share with us in the comments below. #gowithnugget ⠀ 📷: @theamericanfieldtrip
When there is frost on the ground you know that Winter has definitely arrived!!! ⠀ Anyone else feeling a little bit chilly here in Australia lately ?? ⠀ ⠀ My daughter decided to wake up early, during our stay at the tiny home so we took the chance to go for a walk and explore the property. ⠀ ⠀ It was cold. Our noses turned red and we could barely feel our fingers but it didn’t deter us... we just walked a little bit faster, stuck our hands in our pockets and when we returned we got the fire blazing! We are definitely lovers of winter! ⠀ ⠀ How do you feel about the cold weather? Love it or loathe it? . . . . . @in2thewild.aus #winterhasarrived #winterinaustralia #welovewinter #tinyhouseliving #offgridliving #visitnsw #in2thewild #aussiekid #candidchildhood #childhoodunplugged #childhoodmemories #kidsofinstagram #fivestarkids #lpkids #instakids #kidsoftheoutdoors #childrenoftheworld #showthemtheworld #myfamily #lovemyfamily #lovetotravel #kidswhotravel #worldwidekids #holidayswithkids #familytrails #aussiesofinstagram #lovethiskid #familyfirst #singlemumlife
"It's time to take chances, get messy and make mistakes." - Mrs Frizzel And as it turns out, my childhood hero was right about everything. Life has come full circle, wherein, a childhood quote meant to inspire learning can be directly applied to my adult life. Aside from taking chances by pushing the boundaries of bed time (note: later has proven to create a cascading effect of sleep deprivation, the likes of which take an eternity to catch up on) I also took a chance for a few more, let's say meaningful, life choices. From the man I married to the house we live in - everything was taking a chance. Also - let's face it; getting messy is my child's goal in life. I've learned to embrace the chaos of Hurricane Thomas in all it's wheeled glory. There isn't a day that goes by where the sound of a thousand tiny cars being dumped on the carpet sends ice cold chills up my spine, but I've learned things can always be picked back up again (and again, and again, and again). And I've made about a million mistakes in my life time. I mean - who hasn't. I've mixed inappropriate alcohol, I've been a teenager (which, as it turns out is just generally 10 years of apologies for not using your brain) and walked down a few roads I shouldn't have. But here's the thing, my life wouldn't be what it is, in this very moment without each and every chance, mess and mistake. Each right path, each wrong one and every second between them lead me here. So thank you, dear Mrs. Frizzel, for reminding me that it's always a good time to take chances, get messy and make many more mistakes. #pointsifyoureadallofthis . . . . . . . . . . . . . #raiseawildchild #raisingkidswild #wildchild #iwasbornwild #wildandfree #wildandfreechildren #runwildmychild #wildtime #naturekids #naturebaby #children_outdoors #kidsoftheoutdoors #outdoorkids #outdoorswithkids #freerangekids #littleandbrave #childhoodunplugged #takethekids #motherhoodthroughig #mindfulmamas #livewithintention #finditliveit #motherhoodthroughinstagram #mymamahood #motherhoodrocks   #mamarazzi #stopdropandmom
Couples vacation: You do things you yourself find pleasurable, such as getting a massage, going sight-seeing, and relaxing by the pool with a drink. This aspect of the vacation cannot be overstated, and is even perhaps essential to the very definition of “vacation.” In the very worst case scenario, you do things you feel neutral about, e.g. eating at the hotel restaurant because it’s more convenient. Family vacation: You do things you would never personally pick to do if they were the last options for activities on Earth. Instead of making your own choices, you consider what your children will enjoy and draw cute pictures about when their preschool teacher asks what they did on vacation. This is a surefire way to end up doing something terrifically boring and unenjoyable by any adult standard, e.g. standing in freezing knee-high water catching your child who is coming down a water slide, easily 500 times, while you develop a migraine and a twitch from the heat. Assuming you are not caring for your other child, who has vomited. #familyvacation ************************************* #travelingwithkids #kidswhotravel #familygetaway #exploremore #gooutsideandplay #kidsoftheoutdoors #adventuresofchildren #runwildmychild #kidswhoexplore #letthembelittle #wildandbravelittles #honestly_play #projectfaceless #kotl_faceless #reisenmitkindern #familienurlaub #celebrate_childhood
Winter doesn’t keep our family away from the beach! #iphoneonly
Just hold them tight. Forget all the stress and daily nonsense that we get bogged down with.

She turned her cants into cans and her dreams into plans. ✨ . . We’ll take all your Rocky Mountain National Park tips, please!! This little girl is especially excited to be headed there very soon. 💛
Wild roars out of this boy like the ocean he runs with. I find myself playing lion tamer as an every day occupation. He's an adrenaline junkie in the shape of a three year old who doesn't understand the concept of mortality yet. That's what I contend with every day. One day he'll be grown and I won't be responsible for his choices anymore. But until then it's my job to make sure he ends the day in one solid piece. Wish me luck! 😬 *interesting Remy fact for you - he won't wear shoes. He is shoeless about 90% of the time regardless of where we are. I've given up. #biggerfishtofry *🤷🏻‍♀️
I remember the first time J climbed onto Luna. She has always been so gentle, so patient, so trusting. Even through those manhandling toddler years when this pup was basically a human jungle gym. 6 years later and there is surely a lot less wrestling, but no less love. . . . . . . . . . . #adventurekids #adventurefamily #familytrails #livelifeoutside #kidsoftheoutdoors #adventureparenting #outdoorfamilies #outdoorbloggers #goadventuretogether #runwildmychild #childrenofmountains #wildandbravelittles #wilderness_kids #lifehappensoutdoors #choosemountains #tinybigadventure #outlookexo #namuk #itsbetteroutside #packleashes #packleashesmodel #choosemountains #parentinginthewild #weneedmorewild #huskylove #huskylife #huskypuppy #huskiesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram

✨The greater your storm, the brighter your rainbow✨ I seem to always have a sixth sense when it comes to rainbows. The kids and I were quietly snuggled on the couch reading our bazillionth book and I just had an instinctual feeling to step outside to see if there might be a rainbow; my soul was right so I threw the babes in the stroller and we ran down to the water to take in this miracle by Mother Nature🌈 #TheMitchellTribe #adventuremamas

Hey guys! Shawna with @pnw.outdoor.family here with an epic #tinybigadventure feature! Check out this awesome capture by @alliecarr.photographer and what she had to say about enjoying every moment with her kids. That’s what it’s all about, right? Thanks Allie for this epic share and for these amazing words of wisdom. “This is me. And my beautiful daughter. Yesterday we went swimming for the first time this summer. It’s also the first year she passed the swim test to be able to swim in the big kid area without a lifejacket. These moments are slipping through my fingers and I cannot slow down time. But what I can do is live in them. Truly live in them. So here I am, in all my mom bod glory, in my two piece swimsuit, jumping off the dock over and over again with my daughter. Laughing and carefree. It felt so good. Because in 20 years she won’t remember that I’ve put on 15 pounds in the past year. But what she will remember is that she was worth enough to me to let go of my own insecurities to lift her up. Here’s to raising wild, crazy and confident ladies” 📸: @alliecarr.photographer Featured by Ambassador @pnw.outdoor.family . . . Remember to tag #tinybigadventure for an epic feature!
Boom!!👍🏿👍🏿
Ready and Go!
Watch This,😀

Two years old or ninety-two; it doesn’t matter your age, just find that friend who doesn’t mind getting dirty with you, who will hold your hand on the trail, and who embraces a soggy diaper if it means spending time together.

Nature walking with my bestie. It’s the little things.❤️🌞🌸
Nothing like a rock scramble filled with Copperheads and Cottonmouths to test your totally healthy fear of snakes 🐍 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The day before Meika almost stepped on a Cottonmouth on the trail and a few different groups of hikers told us that they were all out on the rocks sunning themselves. So we bypassed the rocks in hopes that the morning would be a little bit better. Lucky for us on the snake front, the rain rolled in earlier than expected so they were all hiding. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On the other hand, we traded the snakes for slippery rocks. Matt’s @merrell boots performed significantly better than mine so he was on toddler duty and I ended up slipping and hitting my knee on a rock. 😩 I got a pretty big bruise but it could have been much worse and I see a new pair of Merrell boots in my future!
Just another day in paradise ☀️🏖🙌 One thing that I really struggle with is explaining to Aiden how fortunate we are. Our lifestyle is so different than mine was, growing up - I didn’t go on a plane until I was 16, and going to the next province over was a treat. Now, thanks to my husband working for an airline, we travel at least three or four times a year. I try to tell Aiden that lots of kids don’t get to travel nearly as often as we do. At five years old, I feel like it’s difficult to appreciate the things you have, no matter how much that is. Do you struggle with teaching your kids about this too? . . . . #familytravel #travelwithkids #stayandwander #myformerbump #exploretocreate #darlingescapes #alwaysgo #showthemtheworld #babycantravel #lovelifeoutside #lovelywanderings #adventuresawait #exploringtheworld #kidsoftheoutdoors #unpluggedtravel #lifeisanadventure #bringthekids #outdoorkids #lonelyplanetkids #jetsettingkids #athomeintheworld #ourtribetravels #letsgosomewhere #miniwanderlust #gowithnugget #occidentalxcaret #xcaret #mexico #playadelcarmen #mayanriviera
These two: opposites, and yet inseparable. I could watch them together all day. Don’t get me wrong. They fight - hard. But they are capable of communicating so well and helping, and encouraging one another. ⠀ ⠀ Hebrews 10:24 “And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds.”
🤸🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♀️🤸🏼‍♀️
I’m always thankful when the kids can keep a steady pace on the trail but the stop and smell the roses climb a tree rock scrambling kid gets all the best shots.
Cue Johnny! “We’re going to Jackson...” We got to Jackson Wy and so did Sarah! First of all the drive from Yellowstone to Tetons?! 😍😍😍 we stopped at the snake river overlook to get the iconic picture Ansel Adams took. On the way we stopped at the Colter Bay visitor center to get information and jr ranger books. The ranger approved of our hiking choices, so we were excited. We set up camp, got groceries, then checked out the awesome town of Jackson. Then had to stay for pizza and beer 🍻
Our 4th if July was pretty laid back. Hit the M’s game during the day, then lit a few smoke bombs because we didn’t have any fireworks and the. Let the kids throw some pop-it’s. It was a quiet night with an early bedtime as well since I had to work the day after. Even though it was low key it was a great day with my family ❤️
Starfish time! She was so cute, observing all the sea life in the tide pools. Gently holding and collecting and then ensuring they were put back just so. Had such a great time on the island. #thecrabshackcamano #camanoisland
