Today I'm Thankful for friends to hike with. Having someone to play, hike or explore with makes getting outdoors so much easier. Having an outdoor friend or community is one of three essentail aspects beginners need to get out on a trail. That's why I'm so excited to be a trailblazer for the #10kwomentrailproject. This initiative from @hikeitbaby and @rei has the goal to inspire 10,000 women to hike in the next year and for them to invite their female friends to join. Here's my invitation to you. Will you hike with me this Friday November 24? Go ahead and #optoutside for Black Friday. Just post a photo and tag @mountainmomtots! Let's get outdoors together.
Day 2 of my #graditudechallenge is that guy right there in the mist of those crazy kids 😆! Cory and I met at the college I was attending! He had graduated the year before and was raising support to go overseas to serve and lead 7 students on their study abroad program. Cory and I spent most of our relationship on different continents, but we knew right away that there was something different about each other and it was worth the distance! We had our first “date” in Vienna, Austria and the rest is history. We have been married 7 years and it’s been an adventure! I’m thankful to have him by my side to go through all the things that life throws at us! We don’t always know what we are doing, but we are doing it together! #5daysofgratitude 📷: @zionadventurephotog #whpthankful @instagram
we may have minimized the physical stuff that we own but the sense of adventure inside of these kiddos has tripled...they spend most of their spare time exploring the outdoors and building forts. We’re so thankful that we live in a place that’s 68° in November! 😍
I’m behind in posting but this kid turned 10 on October 23rd. Rory is the kid that knows when to give me a sweet hug or whisper “I love you mom” when I need it the most. Love his heart and his gentle soul.
Happy (almost) Thankful Thursday!!! [22/30] I’m thankful for the tough days. Without them, we would not appreciate the not-so-though days, nearly as much. Tough days help us grow, they help us learn, and they help us appreciate. When I feel at my wits’ end...I close my eyes and say to myself, “This is good, because ________.” By finishing this sentence, I am able to center myself, stay positive, and (in turn) help teach my children to grow/learn/appreciate. I’m so very, very thankful for the tough days! 💗 🔸🔸🔹🔹🔸🔸🔹🔹🔸🔸🔹🔹 I am so honored and *grateful* to be participating in a new loop—> tagged #thankfulmamasunited 👏🏼🙌🏼 This is a weekly loop filled with some super talented photographers!

Anyone else excited for the rest of the week as much as we are? We are packing up again and heading to Washington, DC! . This will be our second time as a couple and first time with our daughter. Any tips, tricks, and must sees?
Is it just my children who do this? As soon as they’re in for the evening and out of the cold, they’re in and out of the shower or bath, then they grab their towels and head straight for MY bed! Cheeky little monsters.
It's snowing!!! ❄ Ok it's not. But maybe if it gets cold enough soon it will. In the meantime there's an alternative. Only in Milton Keynes would you find a fake snow play area! And it's free. It's in @intumiltonkeynes and has taken the place of the soft play for a bit. One of the great joys in life is throwing snow and my 4 year old had a whale of a time. It can be messy and chaotic though. We've been to check out everything you can with with kids cheaply at the shopping centres in MK over the next month. Some good. Some not.
