We enjoyed Bridal Falls alone today. This kod is happiest licking rocks in the woods and It was the perfect morning together 💙🌲 As my baby quickly changes into a toddler, I can't help but soak up every second of his sweet, mostly toothless smile and love for nature.
I took my kids to Box Springs Mtn crag. Not really a destination but still fun. I didn’t get much climbing in because I was my children’s belay slave. 😉 It was fun to see them push themselves beyond their comfort zone with rewarding results. It was their first time outside.

Yesterday, they were running around outside picking flowers for me in celebration of the first day of spring.
Today, they are catching snowflakes on their tongues while running between the house and car. 🤷♀️
The snow has been so much fun all winter long, but I’m sooo over it by now!! It’s SPRING!! I’m ready to #getoutside all day and go for #familyhikes . Stop snowing, Mother Nature!!!
Life will take you by surprise and upset your plans regularly. You can get grumpy, frustrated, or pissed-but that will never get you further. The frustration never changes anything. What does make a difference is taking a deep breath, putting on your big girl panties (or coat and hat, whatever), and making peace with what is actually happening. It’s ok to watch one more episode of Mickey Mouse sometimes, and it’s ok if we have to put on some extra layers to get in a very short outside time. .
When the weather is cooperating, and we’re busying ourselves with hikes, play dates, bbq’s and picnics, we will remember these cozy, chilly days of cold little hands and couch cuddles. .
These are mighty special times too.❤️

But the love of adventure was in father's blood.
“What if I fall?” Oh, my darling what if you fly? - Peter Pan
I always loved this statement. This is so true and an everyday struggle. I fear falling. I have fell many times in life, but I want Hensley to know it is okay to fall. Falling is a part of life. We fall so we can fly and all the falls make flying so much more magical. Don’t give up on your dream because of fear. Let your dreams take flight. What good are wings without the courage to fly as they say. The more you let go, the higher you will soar.
Happy Wednesday Trailmothers!

Look at those smiles! I think a lot of people have a misconception that being outside is harder then it is with littles. Sure we have rough days out, there’s no electronics (usually and thankfully) not as many toys and sometimes it’s cold but there are very few days where we come home and I wish we hadn’t gone. Even on the fussiest days I’m glad that it was outside rather then being cranky and upset at home.
Do you also find it’s usually easier then you expected or harder?
Share your experiences and we’ll share in our InstaStories!

📌 Homosassa Springs Wildlife State Park.
😮 One of the only natural places in Florida that you can see Native West Indian Manatee year round.
🔵 Directly beneath where I took this shot is the "Fish Bowl" Underwater Observatory. You can walk down a set of stairs to view thousands of fish in this crystal-clear fresh water spring & try to catch a closer glimpse of the threatened manatee face to face.

There is a superhero in all of us, we just need the courage to put on the cape.
If your family loves exploring authentic and unspoiled destinations, the Faroe Islands could be perfect for you. Despite being in a fairly remote location, the Faroe Islands are well-connected to Northern Europe and the UK with direct flights from @flysas and @atlanticairways. Once you arrive, @thiswildtime says it's possible to stick to a budget if you do some research and keep things simple: "The Faroe Islands are famed to be an expensive destination but all you need is a hire car, roof over your head and everything else is free...it's nature!" Jake Cassar says. What are your best tips for keeping things budget-friendly when traveling with kids? Tell us in the comments! #gowithnugget 📷: @thiswildtime

Hair wash day has escalated to an entirely new, exhausting level since I became a mom. Today’s tub experience resulted in 1/4 of her hair still dirty in a braid, another 1/4 not rinsed, a soaking wet mother, a screaming child, Cheerios down the drain and pee on the floor. Don’t ask me how I know it was pee...I just know.🤦🏽♀️ Anyone with tender-headed curly toddlers? 🙏🏽Your girl needs some tips!

As a teacher I am passionate about getting my students learning outside of a traditional classroom as much as possible. I am excited to provide resources to help other teachers do the same. I’ll be making weekly YouTube videos to help bring nature into your classroom (or home) with free worksheets (through teachers pay teachers) to go along with them. Find the full version of this video (and more to come) on my YouTube channel through the link in my profile. #longlivethewild#teacher#teacherspayteachers#teachersofinstagram#mradamsedventures#youtube#vancouverisland

HELLO, Colorado Trailmothers!!!
We are beyond excited to have this chapter up and running 🙌🏼 check out our upcoming events! .
Our first one is a mama only hike (because sometimes we need to hike without the littles!) on April 8 in Lyons, CO and our second hike is a kiddo mama hike on May 6 in Boulder! .
We can’t wait to start hiking with all of you!
Spring drew on...and a greenness grew over those brown beds, which, freshening daily, suggested the thought that Hope traversed them at night, and left each morning brighter traces of her steps.
Happy first day of Spring, friends!
