Our first day at gymnastics open play was a huge success. Probably most important to him was that it was 1 straight hour uninterrupted with mama without sharing with new baby sister. ;) #wildchild#momlife
These two make my world a crazy one and I wouldn't trade it for anything!! Stella is one strong willed wild-thing right now!! But she loved getting her face painted and Parker is sooo busy everyday but he is the sweetest kid!! And best brother EVER!!! Makes momma happy to see these two play and laugh!! #mykiddos#myworldiscrazy#theyaresocute#proudmomma#wildchild
Look how much our bear has changed in just a year. Well I mean he's still in the same clothes 😂 but he's walking, running, dancing, he's totally wild and crazy, talking full sentences and even throwing toddler tantrums! Not just us but also your close family are super proud of the beautiful bright boy you are becoming Joseph, you are amazing! We love you lots and lots xxx
Mountain biking in Moab Utah does not come without challenges. It started out with stress about parking, getting bikes and helmets, and studying the map to find an appropriate trail.
When we got on the trail along with 100 other people, Big E just struggled. We had to stop so often to manage uphill, rocks and expectations that within 10 minutes we were all frustrated. Big E pouted, cried, and grumbled while Mountain Dad and I helped, reasoned, and finally lost our patience.
We gave up, loaded up and started driving away. Before we totally got out of the area we decided to try one more trail.
Thankfully we all calmed down enough by the time we reached the second trailhead that we were able to try again. On this second pass the trail was easier, our expectations lower and we all had a good time.
That's how outdoor adventures with kids go sometimes. A lot of work but a lot of fun in the end.
