craftykirsten #playingcatchup Quincie's art gallery at school was so darling. All year they learn about famous artists and mimic some of their art pieces. I was so happy with what she and all the other kids created. I can't wait to hang some of these masterpieces around the house. Love this girl ️! #artisticlady #thankyouteacher #kiddoart 2d

craftykirsten Waking up at 5am to go mountain biking kicks my butt for this night owl, but it's so worth it. Monday wasn't near as cold as last time we went when it was 24 degrees and we were frozen! Thanks @mandeemom for dragging me outta bed! #elephantrock #bikingismybae #itsabeautifulmorning #adventuring 2d

craftykirsten #feelingnostalgiclately #cheesewarning Don't hate me for this but it took until about 4 years ago to fall in love with St George. For years I saw it as a place that was waaaay too hot, waaaay too dry and not enough to do. Boy was I wrong ! I think part of it is because I have kiddos now to enjoy it with. Let's be honest, there are plenty of things that are made more difficult by carting around a flock of children. Adventuring and exploring comes alive for me when I'm with my kiddos. All of the sudden I'm on high alert to be enthusiastic about it so maybe they won't no notice the heat or their tired muscles...because having a love of adventuring and being active has always blessed my life so much. Living a full and happy life to me means living with curiosity and adventure all while being humbled to be a child of a loving God that blesses us continually with places and things that delight our senses. So in other words, I'm happy to be here. #redrocks #hiking #glittermine #sandhollow #lovemysavior #adventuringfordays #stgeorge #thingsiwantmybabiestoknow 2w

craftykirsten Benny!!!! Thanks for befitting a treat with me after your game this week. What a great soccer season you've had! You have made so many new friends this year and have rocked it on the soccer field. It's so fun to see your speedy legs maneuver around the field (and around your opponents). You have grown leaps and bounds this year! You still say to me on a daily basis, "Hey babe!" Boys are da bomb! Love you buddy! 2w

craftykirsten So happy to be with you for just a bit this week @karmannw I'm so incredibly grateful for good friends throughout my whole life. I have always had friends that inspire and lift and make me want to be better. @karmannw what an amazing mother and friend you are. Love you so ! Good friends are one of the most valuable treasures in life, they can either make you or break you. I've found that choosing good friends as an adult is just as important as choosing good friends when you are young. I hope my kiddos choose friends that will inspire them stretch to be their best selves and friends that expect the same thing in return. I hope they always choose friends that aren't afraid to call them out when they are being idiots because that's what good friends do. I hope they choose friends that love God and give advice that supports that love. I hope I can teach them to be all those things in return. #myfriendsrock #beafriendgetafriend #imdonenow #thingsiwantmybabiestoknow 2w
  •   karmannw My lovely dear Kirsten!!! I'm sorry our time was so very limited but so glad you were able to meet us there! The few moments together made my day, week, and month! You are a true gem. I'm forever thankful of heavenly fathers matchless power and timing of knowing when two people need to meet and to what the extent that friendship would be to both of them. I know we were close in heaven and I know our meeting was not by accident. You were and still are one of my greatest rocks and someone who gets me in so many ways from our growing up similarities to our day day struggle of self. I love you with all my heart! Thank you for blessing my life to the fullest and loving me unconditionally. You my dear are so precious and I have no doubt your kids will be just like you! Cherished by their friends and surrounded by good ones because they have you as their example! @klaws1979 hi love!!!!! Love you!!! 2w
  •   aekins23 Yes!! So true. Love you both! 2w
  •   londonpack That is so true. Good friends are just as important to find as am adult 2w

craftykirsten Yesterday was so amazing for countless reasons you know who you are and you know why. One of the major reasons is that Porter got the Priesthood in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. It's amazing that the Lord trusts young boys to serve and to hold his Priesthood so others' lives can be blessed. I'm grateful that Porter is willing and ready to serve. As a woman, I love the Priesthood so much for countless reasons. Priesthood blessings and Priesthood power has blessed me throughout my entire life and have helped me through times that I couldn't have helped myself through. I love it and am so grateful I have one more Priesthood holder in my home ! #poweronearth #thingsiwantmybabiestoknow #timeflieswhenyouarehavingfun 1mon

craftykirsten This 12 year-old has my heart. We used to butt heads so much. We used to get in scuffles constantly. I'm so grateful for prayer and the fact that we can pray to understand our children better and Heavenly Father will show us their hearts and increase our love for them. As I was watching him play today I realized that he has my whole heart and our relationship is amazing now. Relationships always take work that's for sure. I'm so glad he's mine. #basketballcourtdeepthoughts #thingsiwantmybabiestoknow 2mon

craftykirsten Only a couple more pictures I swear.....docks are my favorite....one last picture from Antelope Island. It was so fun exploring this dock surrounded by gross water and no boats. Why was it fun? It was fun to think of what kinds of boats were here and what's kinds of adventures they went on. The weathered wood, the skipping rocks off to the side, more gross water, running up and down the dock. The kids loved pretending they were falling in, luckily nobody did. My parents soaked it all up just as they always do because they are the original adventurers. Tip for An Antelope Island adventure, don't go from May 1st-the first couple 90 degree days. The mosquitos are unbearable. Go before or after for a happy trip! #adventuringtogether #antelopeisland 2mon
  •   hurricanehymas Well said and well documented with your lovely photos! 2mon

craftykirsten One of my favorite things about you Quincie is that you are an explorer and adventurer. I love how you are always up for a hike or a bike ride or an art project or pretty much anything. You are the girl of my dreams and perfectly hand-crafted for me. #ladylove #adventuringtogether 2mon
