We're starting a new tradition of adding ornaments that commemorate our experiences. This is our first 💙💚 #greatsmokymountainnationalpark #outdooradventures #outdoorkids #outdoorfamilies #Optoutside #campingwithkids #findyourpark #getoutandexplore #nationalparks
"Crafts" don't have to be just for those that like glitter, pom poms, or all frilly for that matter. It can be a creative tool for learning, for boys and girls. As the weather began to make changes, I put together a unit study about hibernation/torpor/migration/adaptation for our 6yo daughter, whom we homeschool eclectically. We wrapped up the theme by creating this wilderness diorama. She went through her assortment of animals and picked out which ones did what for Winter, here in New England. Based on that, she decided which type of shelter each needed and went through her nature table to pull from her collection of pinecones. Next, she went outside to collect rocks for the bear den, sticks for the beaver lodge, and pine needles for the trees. This sensory experience, with a mix of nature, paper, hot glue and imagination opened up a great discussion, and a wonderful summation for all we had learned together. It was an enjoyable afternoon crafting, as mother and daughter, as teacher and student. That's what homeschooling is all about for us.
Hadley, Roxy and I found our happy place in the midst of the hustle and bustle in downtown Denver! It's a bummer @ryan.dobbins was stuck indoors attending meetings on this gorgeous, mid 50's December day, but I'd say us girls are doing just fine playing tourist in a big city!
Right before this picture was taken, they were all standing the same way overlooking White Sands like superheroes. I looked down for half a second to adjust my focus and the boys took off in opposite directions 🤷‍♀️ gotta be quick with toddlers! The photo I ended up with is a better representation of these three anyway. 💙
We had the privilege of taking our kids skiing on the weekend. Despite the perfect pics that come up or the hallmark ski commercials, it was nowhere near perfect. We found ourselves wondering why we spent a zillion dollars on ski passes for our children when all they wanted to do was ride the gondola up and down. We had to bribe them at times (most times) with a sucker, to get their dang skis on. However, THIS is how it is with kids everyone. We want people to know this. Don’t be ashamed, embarrassed and DONT give up on little outdoor adventures. You are creating memories it’s all part of the outdoor experience with kiddos!

Plant based. Toxin free. Essential oil infused. Cleaning powerhouse 🙌🏻 🌱 I keep saying it guys, but there’s just so much more to Young Living then their dreamy oils. Honestly, I had no idea the line of products they offered - and now it’s basically the only company we use. 🌱 This entire bottle cost me $22.50 and will clean my entire house for a whole year. Still think toxic free living is expensive? 🌱 The best part, I don’t have to panic if, or more like when, my wild one gets into the cleaner under the sink. 🌱 What’s in your cleaner? . . . . . . . . . . #outdoorfamily #raisingwildlings #knowbetterdobetter #mountainlife #mountaingirls #mountainmama #outdoorfamilies #coloradofamily #summitcountycolorado #summitcountyco #mountainlife #mountainlifestyle #mountainfamily #cabinlife #cabinlifestyle #cabinliving #adventureparenting #adventurefamily #adventureseeker #honestmotherhood #naturalmama #boymom #coloradomama #momlife #outdoorwomen #outdooradventures #coloradomamas #coloradomama
Today we explored the beautiful @descansogardens . My husband let me barrow his camera and so I gave my phone to my kiddo so she could take pictures. As I was going through the pictures she took, this one made me smile. It reminded me of all the pictures I take of them walking along the trails😍 _______ #descansogardens #trailcampictures #gardenpictures #tinybigadventure #getthemoutside #hikingwithkids #exploretheoutdoors #outdoorfamilies
Today was a good day, to have a good day. Sorry I've been so on and off, on Instagram lately. I've been finally practicing more self care off-trail, and trying to adjust to Southern/ East Coast living. New mailboxes, new doctors, dentists, optometrist. And this mama just had my first psychology appointment, so I can take care of my mental health. I need it right now. Life has been way too overwhelming, for way too long. And I'm so ready to take this leap to really take care of me. And amongst all this self care, I just started a @hikeitbaby branch here in Goldsboro, NC! We've already had a park play, and today we explored a new trail, with new friends. My heart is full of gratitude today. I may keep falling down, but I'll always get back up again. Be BRAVE with your one and only life ❤
Look who made her own bowl and spoon! Grace learned how to use wood-burning techniques to hollow out a spoon ladle from a small piece of wood. Earlier in the season, she learned how to prep and carve a fresh gourd to get it ready to scrape, dry, sand, and oil. All complete just in time to use for the holidays 😄 #teachtheyouth #bushcraft #woodworking #wildschooling #proudmomma #diy #gourds #coloradokids #mygirl #wildchild #adventurefamily #radgirlslife #mountaingirls #childrenofmountains #outdoorfamilies #homeschool #forestschool
I’ve been in a bit of a funk for the last few months. The girls and I keep getting sick along with other things I’ve been dealing with. I am finally starting to get out of my funk and ready to get back into the outdoors more. I am glad that no matter where you are in life, the outdoors are always there for you. ❤️ . Also want to note, that Mabel never wants to walk on our walks. I can barely get her to walk to the trail head when we do our nature walk group. Well, today she walked .89 miles on her on two little legs! So proud of her and now I know she can do it. 😁 . . . . . #pnw #pnwadventures #pnwonderland #exploring #naturewalk #kidsinnature #naturekids #funwithnature #childhoodunplugged #optoutside #gooutside #gooutsideandplay #pnwfamilies #outdoorfamilies #wildandfreechildren #raiseawildchild #raisethemwild #vitaminn #goodforthesoul #charlottemason #charlottemasonpreschool
If you’ve followed us for some time you’ll know that the only thing we love as much as the outdoors is street murals. 🎨 One of the murals we loved in North Park is this one…the mural spreads further to the sides to capture the rest of these cute creatures’ shadows. * So my heart is breaking right now as I read an article today that this iconic North Park mural was sprayed over yesterday. GONE. * Thousands of petition signatures from North Park residents, yet the Target mini-store that is moving in decided it had to go. North Park has such a fun local vibe, one that isn’t too supportive of chains moving in…Target, that’s not really the way to make friends. I love me some Target but this really disappoints me. * On the bright side, there are so many other amazing street murals in San Diego (and North Park) so if you are up for an adventure to find them, ***click the link in our bio*** to get to our San Diego Mural Scavenger Hunt we created! This beautiful mural was featured in there…so obviously you’ll won’t find that one, but there are many others to enjoy! . . . . . . . . . . . . #travelwithkids #travelingwithkids #familytravelblog #northparksandiego #travelkids #sandiego #sandiegokids #kidstravel #outdoorfamilies #kidswhotravel #travelblog #SDlife #exploresandiego #visitsandiego #sandiegolife #SD #familytravel #socaltravelfriends #familytravelblogger #exploremore #sandiegoblogger #californialove #sandiegoliving #travelfamily #californiadreaming #socal #famtravelfriends #visitsd #northpark #streetart
☀️Digging deep into my forest & nature school practitioners course today, with a side of inspirational book and essential oil-infused peppermint tea latte – best day I’ve had in a while! • It’s funny how quickly bad habits form, how easily we fall into ruts, and how hard it can feel to shake ourselves out of funks. Reading my motivational letter to myself last week was the kick in the ass I needed to develop new happy & productive habits, knock myself out of that rut I was in and into a sweet new groove, and to snap myself out of the funk that a lack of productivity and distance from my goals put me in. Cheers to getting outside more, hustling hard for those big dreams I have, reading all the things, and taking every opportunity to craft another cozy tea latte infused with essential oils. • @forestschoolcan @rainorshinemamma @younglivingeocanada @younglivingeo . . . #youngliving #younglivingessentialoils #younglivingcanada #ylcanada #essentialoils #essentialoilsfortheoutdoors #essentialoils #peppermintessentialoil #tealatte #pepperminttealatte #vitalityoils #getoutside #optoutside #outfamcommunity #outdoorfamilies #canadianoutdoorfamilies #forestschool #forestschoolcanada #forestandnatureschool #forestschoolpractitioner #forestschoolleader #childandnatureallianceofcanada #raiseawildchild #raisingkidswild #kidsgrowbetteroutside #notallclassroomshavefourwalls #learnoutside #learnoutdoors #theresnosuchthingasbadweather #rainorshinemamma
O amor está além de um status no Facebook. O amor requer esforços maiores do que fazer parte dos dias, envolve o esforço emocional da outra pessoa para estar aí, inclusive quando não está – e isso faz toda a diferença. Isto significa conseguir criar um vínculo tão grande que a pessoa se sinta totalmente segura e próxima da outra pessoa, em qualquer circunstância da vida ou distância. #travel #travelwithkids #travelwithchildren #familytravel #viajar #viajarconniños #wanderlust #viajaremfamilia #travelblog #viatjarambnens #familytime #familyadventures #littleexplorer #adventurekids #childhoodunplugged #planesconniños #outdoorfamilies #myfamilypassport #familyjaunts #letthekids #childhoodmemories #conmiradademadre #wildandfree #photooftheday #africadosul #nature_good . . . #umamaedetres #umamaede3 #mãede3viagensemfamilia .
I laugh at this photo every time I see it! On Saturday morning we visited a Christmas wonderland. The kids was all really excited and ran ahead of us to get there first. They then stood in the doorway like this pretending to be a wall and trying to trick us into not noticing them as we walked past. I’ve never known a wall giggle so much 😂😂 I feel so lucky to have these funny onions in my life 🥰
My sister asked me if my friend and I were training for an iron man after seeing a post about me pulling my child in a sled up the Millcreek winter road. I’m actually training for a yurt trip that I’ll have to pack myself, my toddler and all our supplies in. Planning on taking a sled to help lighten the back pack load. I’ve never carried all my overnight gear before. I imagine it would be easier if I practice. I am going to do a test run w the entire load before the trip. Work out the kinks. On a side note, the hill by Elbow Fork on the Millcreek road is bomb dot com to sled down. I enjoyed myself a little too much. On another side note this pic is my #humansherpa Mom squad on #avenuestwinpeaks headed towards the second peak w toddlers in tow. 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻#utahpeakbaggers #wasatchpeakbaggers #wasatching #wasatchmountains #slc #801

Always amazed by what these guys are capable of. We usually get complaints in the parking lot and along the trail (#toddlers ), but they are always excited at the top! . . And Phoenix is such an amazing city with mountains smack in the middle. No excuse not to get out and hike! . . #hikingwithkids #pushthelimits #theseviewsthough
We are currently in a little break between Tinkergarten seasons here in Iowa, but of course that doesn't mean we slow down. It has been a busy time packed with tons of fun with this crew of mine. Over and over again, we are reminded that the best gifts we recieve this season is time with the ones you love! Photo cred📷 @simplyyouphoto . #tinkergarten #outdoorkids #outdoorfamilies
Finding the Beauty in Cloudy Days 🌥 . The kids and I have been taking an online photography class together and we are being stretched to look at things in new ways and to find the beauty in an otherwise dull situtation. I love the fact that you don't need to change the cloudy day (in fact, most of the time you can't)! Just throw it into the background and embrace it. It's all a matter of perspective ❤️ #lifelessons #positivity

The last few days have been incredibly sneezy (lots of runny noses in @myblueberry.house ) and busy (the normal pre-Christmas hustle and bustle, I guess). We've been so engaged that we almost missed this natural spectacle on the mountain the other day. A ray of light ripping the dark apart... It was lovely to stop and stare for a few minutes. ⠀ .⠀ .⠀ .⠀ #myblueberryadventures #arayoflight #wintervibes in #switzerland #stopandstare #inlovewithswitzerland #myswitzerland #blickheimat #visitswitzerland #outdoorfamilies #getoutdoors #folkgreen #thewanderco #artofvisuals #moodygrams #roamtheplanet #folkscenery #modernoutdoors #rsa_outdoors #outdoortones #ourplanetdaily #stayandwander #wildernessculture #nationalgeographic #earthoutdoors #bealpine #feelthealps #discoverearth #wanderlust
Don't fear the cold! Embrace the chill and get some fresh air this winter! "It is not only medically sound, but plain common sense that running around outside in the winter is far more beneficial than being cooped up indoors." - Dr. Michael Cohen, Author and Founder of Tribeca Pediatrics
On the way to the beautiful nine arch bridge in Ella, Sri Lanka. Zach is going through a major stick phase at the moment, he just has to have every stick he walks past. He found a stick shaped like Maui's iconic hook stick from Moana and it has actually travelled to 3 countries with us. Boys will be Boys! 😂🙌
Bei einer solchen Aussicht wie heute, verschlägt es einem fast die Sprache. Und das ist auch gut so. Denn manchmal braucht es keine Worte! Da genügt es, zu schweigen und zu staunen. . Wir sind überwältigt von der Schönheit unseres Landes. Wir sind dankbar, dies gemeinsam erleben zu dürfen, während andere in Büros sitzen oder Schulbänke drücken müssen. Wir sind glücklich, die Adventszeit mal ganz anders gestalten und geniessen zu können wie bis anhin. . . . . . . . . #freisein #engadin #winterwonderland #beautifulswitzerland #silsersee #outdoorfamilies #greenparenting #entschleunigen #embracingtheseasons #slowfamily #freilernen #homeschooling #adventszeit #itsbetteroutside #draussenzuhause #draussenkinder #beziehungsorientiert #collectmomentsnotthings #glücksvorrat #nachhaltigleben #grüneschritte

KIDS ARE BEING PUT IN SHOES TOO YOUNG. 😬 Normal shoes are bad for kids’ feet. WHY? Barefoot podiatrist Paul Thompson @thebarefootpodiatrist has spent years studying what we’re doing wrong with our kids feet. According to his research, kids’ first shoes tend to be soft soled and wide. “But by the age of two, kids’ shoes suddenly start looking like mini versions of adults shoes,” he says. “This is derailing our kids’ feet and bodies before they’ve even had a chance to grow.” 🤦🏽‍♂️ He says we should keep shoes OFF our smallest kids’ feet and then, when they become necessary, think about what KIND of shoes kids wear. Adults’ shoes have thick, rigid soles and they tend to be narrow and pointy, pushing kids’ feet out of their natural shape. After all, once they start school, kids spend 8400 hours in shoes. 👈🏼 That’s a long time.

The kids loved to try authentic malay cuisine at Jonker Street Melaka.
99/100: Can a sister love her brother TOO much?! We say no! The Trahlyta Lake and Trahlyta Falls trails have so much for the kids to explore. Throwing rocks in the lake, dropping leaves on one side of the bridge and then running to see them go down the falls, and then the waterfall itself! If you want to turn your kids into crazed giggle boxes, these are the trails for you! Also, ONE MORE TO GO. #loveand100hikes #100hikes #100hikesin2018 #gastateparks #wandernorthga #atlantatrails #hikingwithkids #exploregeorgia #optoutside #childhoodunplugged #outdoorkids #outdoorfamilies #letthembelittle #littleandbrave #wildandfreechildren #gooutside #playoutside #loveandsiblings
I have a goal for 2019. Each month I want to visit Hocking Hills at least once. There is so much changing beauty there. The frozen waterfalls of winter, wildflowers in spring, the green of summer, and changing leaves in the fall. #outside365 #getoutside #outside365challenge #outsidefamily #outsidefam #outdoorfamilies #nature #wildandfreechildren #nomattertheweather #rainorshine #charlottemason #homeschool #homeschooling #nochildleftinside #naturewalk #outsidemom #vitaminN #raiseawildchild #optoutside #outsideeveryday #greenhour #outdoormama #natureplay #Ohio

One of the first things strangers tell me when they see Forden is almost always, "Look at those lips!" So jealous of those smoochers!⁣ 💋😍 ⁣ Also, took my new boots out and I can't recommend them enough. They're @eddiebauer and they're my new favorites. Check out my stories for more info on the crazy sale they're having right now! I linked my whole outfit if you're interested. ⁣❤️ #eddiebauer #liveyouradventure #sponsored
We have found heaven in Pismo! :::: :::: (#hosted ) We are in love with this area of #slocal so far. From the amazing hotel @thecliffshotelandspa to the ability to have bonfires on the beach! :::: :::: After checking into our hotel (go see it on IG stories!!) and oohing and ahhing over the amazing Christmas touches in our room, we headed to Grover Beach for a bonfire. Probably one of the last places in California where you can still drive on the beach, it’s fun to drive along the hard packed sand to find your spot. Dig a hole and light your fire! It was so fun and a must do up here. :::: :::: :::: ➡️ Have you been to Pismo or #slocal ? Send us your recommendations.

We got to check out stunning Doubtful Sound by boat - the fjords and landscape in fiordland national park are too rugged to have many roads into them, so you either have to hike or go by boat. It was gorgeous! . . #travel #instatravel #yearoftravel #exploretheworld #optoutside #beautifulplaces #parentswhowander #outdoorfamilies
