I’m Not the Parent I Thought I Would be

    I am not the parent I ever thought I would be. Maybe because I wasn’t one of those gals that had my whole life planned out from a young age.  Maybe because I am ever-slowly learning and forming my own opinions and working together with my husband to make the best life for our kids. […]

        Welcoming a Little More Adventure

          On August 30th we welcomed Baby Girl #3 for a grand total of 5 kiddos. We were thankful all went smooth and well and we’ve been settling into a family of 7 (!!!). Thoughts lately: Wow, getting 3 kids aged 3 and under dressed and out the door is tough…. I am so overwhelmed (though […]

            Happy Monday! I am so excited for a second session of the Outdoor Mom Academy and want YOU to join us!

            Yuba Flip Flop Cargo Bike for Kids

              The Yuba Flip Flop cargo balance bike stands out and has been called the “coolest bike ever!” by not only our kids, but any kid (and adult) that happens to see us riding it.

                  Born Wild

                    I am so excited to welcome Deirdre Denali Rosenberg to the blog this week. To be honest, my brain power for creative writing has been less than stellar over the past few weeks (months?) as we prepare for baby and all that comes with that. Her words are refreshing and inspiring for me, and I think […]

                    Best Mountain Bikes for Kids – Reviews

                      Mountain biking for kids is one of those sports that really does rely heavily on having the right gear. A bike that doesn’t allow for easy climbing and rolling over all sorts of terrain easily discourages little riders. Right now we have two favorites: Prevelo Zulu Three – NEW review just posted!
