This map had been fun for tracking our adventures the past 10 months. But what I’m really excited for are all the pins that will soon cover the SouthEast portion. 😆 . .#disneyorbust #rvlife #rvlove #rver #travel #livingthervlife #explore #homeschool #homschoolmom #makelearningfun #outdoorfamilies #childhoodunplugged #homeschoolife #gorving #getoutdoors #rvfamily #roadschooling #rvhomeschool

The perfect shaded spot in the perfect island house... I found a little piece of heaven on this Goan island...

The mosquitoes have been beyond horrible the past couple weeks and we have been staying inside. Thankfully today was windy and the mosquitoes were absent! It was like cabin fever again. He has been asking for "school work" just like his big sister. #outdoorfamilies
“There is only one thing that makes a dream impossible to achieve: the fear of failure.” ― Paulo Coelho, The Alchemist • • • Lately instead of hiking our nights are filled with homework...Sitting at the table and doing homework takes sooo much patience on my part. Not because I’m trying to teach her how to do it, but helping her understand she shouldn’t ALREADY know it. She is so bright and has been blessed with a brilliant mind for learning very quickly. However if she doesn’t get it the FIRST time trying just ONCE, she instantly burst out in tears and crying says “I’ll never be able to do it”, “I hate it” I’m constantly telling her “This is why we’re in school- TO LEARN. No one expects you to already know it, WE’RE LEARNING.” My wish and prayers are for her to keep trying, don’t be afraid of failure, look up instead of down. Until then, I’ll keep helping her understand what she’s capable of. (And trying to keep my cool...) #breathe

Throwback to 2 year old Anton biking in the foothills of the Rockies 💛 #fallishere 🍁 #sandymcnabb
I’m not sure how my husband is feeling but I’m becoming more and more aware of just how close we are to becoming a family of FIVE. Something I never ever imagined in my future. Three babies. Made by the two of us. Bringing so much to our lives. I’m in awe and soaking in the time with these two, as I know from past experience just how precious these last few weeks of “just us” really are.
One of our favorite rocky mountain plants-- mullein! Both kids shouted out and pointed when they spotted this massive mullein on our walk the other day in the canyon. 💓 Though it's not native to here, we have been learning all about this plant for a couple of years. The soft, fuzzy leaves are known as nature's toilet paper 😏, but that's not all!! All parts of the plant can be used for medicinal purposes. Mullein leaves have been used for asthma, swollen glands, joint pain, and kidney problems in tea, smoking blends, and a topical poultice. The root has been used for urinary tract issues. The yellow flowers, which bloom from the tall stalk seen in this photo, make a great oil for sinus/ear infection due to the anti-bacterial properties. 🙌🌻 Had to share with all my friends who'd appreciate the wild flora that grows in abundance all around us.. it's even better to know that we cultivate many of these medicinal plants found in nature, so that we help regenerate the earth rather than deplete it 🌱 Info from local resources passed through oral tradition, plus Edible and Medicinal Plants of the Southern Rockies by Mary O'Brien and Karen Vail. #homeschool #teachtheyouth #medicinalherbs #plantmedicine #greenbeauty #nature #forestwalk #plantwalk #mountaingirls #childrenofmountains #outdoorfamilies #wildling #wildcraft #herbalism #permaculture #rockymountains #coloradolove #wildchild #foodismedicine #beautiful #healyourself #healtheearth
Yup yup sounds about right. . . There’s nothing quite like watching plants go through it’s lifecycle, going from garden to plate is an experience that gets kids excited to learn about healthy foods. It’s a great way to expand taste buds and learn about growing fruits & veggies while promoting so many beneficial life skills along the way. It’s an all around #win 🌱 🌱 What are you waiting for to share the wonderful experience of gardening with your kids. #clickthelinkinmybio and sign up today for your children’s gardening & nature craft fun box ✨🌱📦💚 . . #septemberbox #septembertheme #jackandthebeanstalk #childhoodunplugged #creativekids #kidssubscriptionbox #letthembelittle #kidgardener #growyourownfood #outdoorfamilies #organiclifestyle #reconnectingwithnature #naturelovers #empathy #kidsofinstagram #mompreneur #kids_of_our_world #playbasedlearning #sensoryplay #earlychildhoodeducation #subscriptionaddiction #subscriptionbox #kidsubscriptionbox #momlife #kids_of_our_world #mommablogger #gardenblogger
#FF : On Fridays I share some of my favorite Instagrammers—people I LOVE to follow and think you will, too. This week it’s @macs_explore . ❤️ This outdoor adventure family is based in Idaho, but travels all over the world seeking out adventures in the outdoors. They paddleboard to waterfalls, backpack in alpine zones, fat bike through the snow, and so much more. (Here: backpacking to Havasupi in Arizona) . ❤️ Christina takes and posts the most beautiful photos that inspire me to explore more. Her captions are heartfelt and personal, which makes me feel like we are already friends. . ❤️ One day we will meet in person. Until then, I’ll keep following her here and hope you do, too! What inspires you on Instagram? . . . . . . . . . #outdoorfamilies #outfamcommunity #havasupifalls #waterfall #visitarizona #grandcanyon #havasupi #travelfamily #family #featurefriday #travelingmel #wanderlust #backpacking #redrock #familytravel #familyadventure #optoutside #adventuretravel

Sooooo. Es ist Wochenende, Familienwochenende. 😍 Und eingeleitet wird es heute mit einem Foto von unserem ersten Fotoshooting.... Leider müssen wir heute nach fahren. Der Großteil ist schon da oder unterwegs. Wir fahren nach, da unser Kleiner seinen Mittagsschlaf immer braucht. Aber gleich geht's los. Sachen sind gepackt und dann fahren wir los. Ca 1,5 Std. Mal klappt auto fahren gut und mal hasst er das sitzen😅 aber mit der passenden Musik geht es dann wieder. Und nein keine Kindermusik. 😂 Ich wünsche euch ein schönes Wochenende✌🏻😊 . . . . 🎮 Gaming Partner 🎮 @entertuerkment @rofl2k10 . . . . #familienfotografie #familienblog #familietur #scaniafamilien #familienzeit #familienglück #outdoorfamilies #fulltimefamilies #familiesareforever #familiesbelongtogether #familien #prilaga #familienausflug #familietid #familienleben #keepfamiliestogether #familienurlaub #familiekos #familientag #familie #blackfamilies #sylvanianfamilies #families #familiehygge

Look at this amazing view from The Blue Bool in Dorset. We just managed to fit in a visit here on a warm sunny day. I wanted to visit here for ages after seeing @treasureeverym pictures and we weren't disappointed. It was one of the most peaceful places I have visited, with hidden paths, seats to sit and take in the view.

Happy Friday everyone. Given the forecast for rain, rain and more rain, I probably won’t get to experience a cool sunset or sunrise this weekend. That doesn’t matter too much though. I’ll still get precious time in the outdoors to unwind and reset myself. Have a good one everyone. . . . . . #pottyadventures #getoutside #osmaps #outdoorfamilies #hikingwithkids #hikingadventures #theoutbound #anglesey #roamtheplanet #mountains #walesadventure #northwalestagram #landscapelovers #thegreatoutdoors #campingcollective #thewalescollective #keepitwild #lovenature #omgb #exploremore #landscape #neverstopexploring #optoutside #ordnancesurvey #ukpotd #ig_countryside #greatoutdoors #findyourepic #northwales #igersuk
We’re trying to decide this week where we move next year, and man, is it stressful to be adults! This place will always be at the top of our list though. Look how sweet those babies were two years ago!
Deters Family River Trip day one. We arrived to the put in at Cisco, Utah. Not much in Cisco except for a put in and a handful of residents. We spent the day rigging the boats where everyone took a turn blowing up the boats or kayaks. We had to test out the kayaks and the younger boys spent the evening playing in the sand above the ramp. We shuttled the other car to the end and relaxed in the evening. #outdoorfamilies #rafting #tinybigadventure
It was a very hot day in Iowa and the bus was simply too warm for us to stay in it while working, so we found a quiet trailhead where we could sit outside, waiting for the day to cool down so we could go on a bike ride. All of a sudden, 8-10 cars filled the small dirt lot and soldiers in full attire poured out with their rifles. They had a group meet facing the bus (it was quite the funny war vs peace and love contrast) and we listened to the higher ranked officers give their instructions. Aisha asked why would young women and men only a few years older than her would want to train to go to war… The answer came faster than expected, when we overheard a boy tell his friends that his mom was sick and they were broke and he could not afford to go to school whereas the army was paying him good money. “I do all the labs and tests, and I get good grades, he said, but it takes so much of my time and it simply does not pay the bills. Mom needs me to work…” Later on the ride, JF and Mara came up to 2 soldiers laying down in the middle of the trail, holding up their rifles. When they noticed the bikes, they simply rolled on their sides to let them go by, just like in the movies. What a different world… Just another great #roadschooling experience that you simply cannot plan for. #cultureshock
Such a great read on transitioning kids from being carried to hiking on their own! We feel so inspired by @familycantravel we can’t wait to #getoutside this weekend! #Repost @familycantravel ・・・ We knew it wouldn't be easy to transition from hikes carrying our kids to having them hike on their own. Mostly because that would mean slowing down, hiking at their pace and only doing hikes they could. We also knew the long term benefits would be worth it. The Czech Republic was the perfect place to do this and to be honest, we were blown away by what our kids could accomplish! Check the link in our bio (@familycantravel ) for one of our fave hikes in the Czech Republic. - How did you find the transition from carrying to having your kids hike? Any tips to share in the comments? . . . . . #adventurefamily #travelmom #lpkids #familytravel #adventureswithkids #familyadventures #goadventuretogether #loveyourtimetogether #gofurther #familytravelblogger #travelingfamily #kidswhotravel #toddlertravel #familyvacation #outfamcommunity #jetsettingkids #wanderlustkids #travelingwithkids #takeyourkidseverywhere #travelwithkids #explorerkids #littleglobetrotter #outdoorfamilies #familytravelblog #lppathfinders

Outside 365: Day 328-I was prepared for the pop up rain shower ☂️ but not prepared for the amount of mosquitos that attacked us. 😫 It was very humid today. 84 degrees and a 1 1/2 hours outside. #outside365 #getoutside #outside365challenge #outsidefamily #outsidefam #outdoorfamilies #nature #wildandfreechildren #nomattertheweather #rainorshine #charlottemason #homeschool #homeschooling #nochildleftinside #naturewalk #outsidemom #vitaminN #raiseawildchild #optoutside #outsideeveryday #greenhour #outdoormama #natureplay #Ohio
K-Bear getting a bird's eye view of the sunset on the 118th floor of Shanghai Tower. It is the world's 2nd tallest building and fastest elevator.
Brave is trying something that scares you just a little. Even if you only climb a metre off the ground. This gal has recently started climbing to the top indoors and I am so proud of her. But she has spent lots of time only going a metre off the ground too and those moments I am also so proud of her. @borntobeadventurous #iwasbornwild 📷 @borntobeadventurous
#Repost @haplo_10 ・・・ She doesn't clean anchors yet, but she was confident enough to remove draws on the way up. #climb #climbing #kidswhoclimb #climbingkids #optoutside #girlswhoclimb #takeyourkidsoutside #parentsthatrock • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • • Wow that’s amazing! Even as an adult it took me a long time to learn how to clean anchors, I’m sure she’ll get it soon. Nice work and thanks for sharing!

Baby girl, if you can dream it, you can be it 👯 Sharing on the blog our amazing whirlwind of a trip to Washington DC before the hurricane! Link in bio ✨
If you love exploring the Pacific NW beaches, from southern Oregon up thru Vancouver Island, British Columbia, check out this book By The Shore. It is a unique book in that it’s organized by season not area, with seasonal events, recipes, and outdoor projects to try when you’re out by the coast. It’s published by @sasquatchbooks which always offers so many informative books for NW families. . . . . .#pnw #nw #northwest #pnwonderland #northwestisbest #upperleftusa #pnwlife #pnwcollective #thatpnwlife #thatNWadventure #cascadiaexplored #washingtonexplored #wanderwashington #pnwdiscovcered #livewashington #igers_seattle #familytravel #seattleblogger #outdoorfamilies #instatravel #instatraveling #seattlebloggers #optoutside #igers_tacoma #childhoodunplugged #familytravelblogger #travelblogger

The first part of this trip did not go as planned and we almost missed our ferry ⛴. So glad we made it out to @drytortugas National Park today. Such an amazing experience learning the history of this place, plus lots of snorkeling! More photos and the full story will be up on the blog soon! 😍🏝 • • • #drytortugas #livingonadventure #nationalpark #outdoorfamilies #snorkeling #fulltimefamily #travelnurselife #familyfun #snorkelingadventure #travelfamily #rvlifewithkids #optoutside
AD: If your toddler asks you if he can put just his hands in the water, it's a trick! Within 30 seconds he'll have jumped through every part of the fountain, clothes & shoes soaking wet and the biggest smile on his face. Between our two days at Disney, we wanted something a little more low key and loved the suggestion by @arrivedocom to take a walk in the charming town of Celebration. Walking the tree-lined streets and being away from the crowds was just what we needed to get reenergized for our next day at Disney. For more local recommendations in Orlando, go to @arrivedocom and check out the link in our bio @familycantravel
Last week was an amazing anniversary trip! Colorado, the mountains, aspens, public lands and catching up and spending time with some great friends. • When Jimmy asked if I would be interested in fishing, I told him absolutely. The $10 one day license was a bargain, in my opinion, to fish a mountain lake at 10k ft with an amazing view and catching rainbows and my first lake trout! Thanks Jimmy for being an awesome tour guide!!!🎣
Australia’s most recent painted silo at Pingrup. Painted by Evoca1. @wacountrycups (@onerepost ) ・・・ If you're planning a trip to the Pingrup Races, be sure to check out the newly painted silos of a jockey, a farmer with lambs and a kelpie on a tractor! The artist took 15 days and 230 litres of paint to create the mural, which entailed a series of artworks on three individual silos, each 25 metres high and 15 metres wide. You can find out more about the artwork and the trail at publicsilotrail.com 📷 @formwa #pingrup #pingrupsilos #formwa #westernaustralia #southwestsilos
I let the kids blow off some steam after school today and am happy to report that they all fell asleep in record time 🙌🏼 #yaaaas . One of the top questions you guys ask me via DM is wanting to know more details about the outfits my kids wear in my pics. All of them here are head-to-toe in the Wonder Nation line from @Walmart – yep, even the hair accessories and shoes.😊 . If you’ve been following me for a while you know how big of a fan I am of this brand – the details on all their pieces are amazing (like the mini sparkle pom-poms on my daughter’s deer shirt), and their prints and styles are always on trend. 💕 Check out my IG Story to see some more of my favorite pieces and accessories. #sponsored #wondernation
@kbikesurf is the proud new owner of an @evilbicycles just in time for desert season and new adventures. Always keep looking ahead and through those corners! Thanks @ridgwaywrench #morekidsonbikes
