Do you listen to podcasts? In the last year I've gotten really into them. Now I can't drive without listening to one! What's even better, this month I got to be featured on not one, but two of my favorite outdoor podcasts - @hikelikeawoman and @familyadventurepodcast. Check out the link in my profile to get to the interviews. Do you have any podcasts you love?
Welcome spring! What do you enjoy about this season?
This first butterfly of the year left my daughter in tears. I wanted to keep it as a pet, Mom! You never let me do what I want! This coming from the 5 year old that won't get near a bug if it snuck into our house. Parenting and pets. What are you dealing with this week?
New article on the Mountain Mom and Tots blog - the best and worst ski training tools for kids. Have you ever taught a kid to ski? How'd it go?
Why are baby lambs so cute? Im taking pictures of animals for my March Outdoor challenge and thought I'd share some of these cuties with you. I know lambs don't count as WILD animals, but they sure spend a lot more time out of doors than I do. What are your favorite local animals?
I wish a photo could truly capture the joy I felt this afternoon. My daughter asked to go skiing (miracle). The sun felt warm (wonderful). Fresh air filled my lungs and happiness filled my soul (perfection). Spring skiing with kids is the best!
I know a lot of people are looking forward spring, but I wish we had six more weeks of winter. There's no snowboarding without snow, after all. What do you love best about winter? Looking for a way to #LovetheOutdoors? Join my monthly outdoor challenge - link in profile.
Proud mom moment today. My 8 year old skied a ♦ with me in a foot of fresh powder. On the way back to the car he said In all my years skiing this was one of the best times (skiing) I've ever had. Me too buddy.

Thanks to @mamawildnfree for joining the @mountainmomtots February Outdoor Challenge (linkinprofile)! I love what she says- The forest near us isn't the most epic, stunning spectacular scenery.

On the blog today! I posted a list of 10 ways I'm rocking motherhood because sometimes I like to focus on what I'm doing RIGHT instead of counting all the mistakes I make. If you're a mom, I really want to know, how are you #rockingmotherhood? Seriously. Don't be modest. Brag about yourself. I give you permission.
