Sometimes you just want to try somewhere new, so we went for a little drive and ended up at Maidenhead Riverside. We played crazy golf, went for a walk along the river and watched the boats at Boulter's Lock - this one was fascinated. Amazing what you find on your doorstep 🚀πŸ›₯⛡️

This guy is teething terribly and the only thing that appears to bring him lasting relief is to gnaw on is my shoulder. Moreover, if I put him down there's an epic meltdown. He's not yet even 4 month old thus he can't yet self-soothe and genuinely needs me. So, I've been baby wearing and enjoying comforting and cuddling my little shadow, as I know he won't be this tiny for much longer. πŸ’ž

A couple of things I hate....sweating and painting, both of which are happening today 😫 our weekends are filled with getting this place ready, and we only have 2 more weekends to work before we open! This has definitely been a labor of love ❀️

Just chilling after a busy day getting everything sorted for nieces bday cake followed by a quick play at the park. J didn't stay for long as there were lots of people and J has started to get funny about people who look at him. His quirks seem to change daily β˜€οΈ #fruitshoot #robinsons

Complete breakfast thanks to @thenewbarn & @lovegrown πŸ˜‰ This cereal is made completely out of beans! Yes! I said beans. It's the perfect blend of navy, lentils, and garbanzo beans. Made with real cocoa and 3g of fiber in 1 cup! I paired it perfectly with @thenewbarn vanilla almond milk. Which is sweetened with organic maple syrup and organic vanilla extract to give it that wonderful almond flavor! #ad

Ya know, just a Sunday "construction site" in our front yard🚧 When neighbors stopped to ask if all was OK, we just said, "Yep, totally normal." πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

Things I always want to remember 1. Summers at home with you 2. The way you love each other 3. The way you can't wait to see each other in the morning 4. How when one cries, so does the other one 5. The way L's hair smells like honeysuckle 6. The way McLayne smells like sunshine and lavender 7. How I never get to sit alone 8. Sneaking to your rooms even if you're sleeping to breathe you in 9. The way you love me... the list can go forever, but right now, these are my favorite things πŸ’•#mysweetlayton #mightymclayne #honestmotherhood #honestlymothering #morningslikethese #childhoodunplugged #candidchildhood #motherhoodrising #bringingbackthevillage #letthekids

I love it when her little bunny 🐰 teeth sticks out

She is simply gorgeous. Photographing teens is a weakness of mine. It's that in between child and adult phase that I struggle with. That doesn't mean I don't enjoy it, because I do! I just embrace the in between moments, those always speak to me.

I love this soft pic of Lu; she's just a little angel. And this window has quickly become one of my favorite places for shots ✨.....#motherhoodsimplified#thecandidclass#adventuresofchildren#beyondthewonderlust#momazine#the_sweet_life_unscripted#atdiff_kids#wildandbravelittles#thesincerestoryteller#thebloomforum#featurememozi#childrenseemagic#infinity_children#ig_kids#mytinymoments#celebrate_childhood#kidsforreal#uniteinmotherhood#childhood#flashesofdelight#childofig#kidsofinstagram#letthembelittle#mytupelo#mississippiphotographer#thehonestlens#thefreelensed#thefreelensedproject#blackandwhitephotography

During the day, we are staying away from our house because it's on the market. Our toddler can't resist throwing books, blocks, stuffed animals, and waffles all over the floor every time we blink. It's so hard keeping the place clean even though we only have 20% of our stuff in the house at the moment! πŸ˜³πŸ˜– We are OVER IT!! I actually can't wait until Monday. πŸ™„ If you had a relaxing weekend then tell me all about it!

This spot in the Kananaskis was well worth the drive from Canmore to escape the haze of smoke we awoke to that morning. Thanks to my very talented friend @ginayeophotography and her suggestion, we had a fantastic hike along this lake followed by a picnic and play afterwards πŸ’™..... #ryantraveladventures #childrenofthemountains #upperkananaskislake #pocket_canada #explorecanada #abparks #runwildmychild #letthemexplore #splendid_mountains #bns_waters #mountainsarecalling

Can we talk about how emotional I get every time we get a new photo of the house? This is the house we'll settle in. This is where our roots will dig in. We've lived a chaotic and unstable life. I'll forever be grateful for the opportunities the Navy has given Kody and I. But, to see the light at the end of the tunnel feels nice. Look at that porch. I can see many happy kids opening that big door and placing their carved pumpkins. I can hardly wait to move in! 🌻

True life: my kid's not always this happy. I mean, sometimes he is, but sometimes there's 20 people behind the camera screaming "MOOOOOOO" and that makes my kid this happy. Also makes my heart this happy spending time with and watching our people love our kid this week β›ΊοΈπŸŒ²πŸ”πŸŽ£
