With two little ones it has been a struggle to get both down to the beach at times. We live a short walk away, but a short walk for us is still a long one for little legs. My husband Kim bought a wagon frame and wheels in the states, brought it down and added a wooden seat. Now walks to the beach are so much easier. The kids think it’s really fun to ride!
Luna is starting to get into riding a surfboard in very tiny waves and Soleo just loves running around in the sand and pointing at birds.
Ok, I get it. I never thought I would, but now I do.
I’ve met moms that tell me they quit surfing when they had kids. It never made any sense to me. Why would you quit something that you love, that keeps you healthy, fit, not to mention sane, just because you now have kids? Now I know. Continue reading When Moms Quit Surfing
After saying goodbye to family in Oregon, we packed up and headed just a bit further South, just over the border into Northern California. Last Christmas we purchased a lot near Crescent City and were eager to see it in the summer. Continue reading Giggling in the Trees of Northern California
We spent a couple of weeks in Oregon between Bend and Portland exploring with the Obermeyer clan. I didn’t capture quite as much with the camera but here are a few fun video moments mostly through the eyes of Luna. Continue reading Adventuring with Family in Bend and Portland
The Family Forest Fest is a 3 day festival dedicated to kids and their families involving camping, kid’s bands, bubble shows, goat petting, farm tours, a costume parade, evening movies, and so many other activities that there was no time for naps or really sitting still as we didn’t want to miss a single thing!

Ok ok, I know that making play-doh is not a huge deal as far as homeschool crafts go, but it was the first one that I have attempted and it came out amazingly well, so i’m proud of myself and inspired to try our next project! Continue reading I Made Play-Doh!
Does anyone make baby books anymore? Probably.
And I probably should. But with everything digital these days and how much we move around between countries, having something as precious as a baby book might be hard to keep track of. This is something i’ve been meaning to do for 2 years, so the sooner I start the better – A little snapshot recorded in text and photos that we can look back on, to that time when Luna was just 3. Continue reading Luna is 3
Just an easy relaxing walk on a bridge right? Not so much. What this photo doesn’t show is how relieved we were to finally find this bridge!
See video for the visuals, but here’s the story:

They aren’t really babies anymore, but my almost 3 year old and almost 1 year old love camping. My husband and I had been a little apprehensive about camping with little ones just because we’d never done it before. We invested in a nice 6 man tent, and figured sleeping all together on the ground wouldn’t be that different from sleeping all together in a bed! Turns out we were right!

If you’re looking for a toddler friendly activity to provide hours of entertainment, here’s a great one!
Piñatas are huge here in Nicaragua. Every major holiday event seems to involve a swarm of kids swatting a hard stick at each other’s heads as they dive in the dirt for candy. Luna is still intimidated by the crazy scene and I’m not thrilled about the bags of disgusting candy we end up with afterwards. But piñatas are too fun to give up for those reasons alone.
