craftykirsten Ok I've been in denial....but it's true, they are all in school. Where did the time go????? Seriously where? I love to see them grow and try new things. They are amazing and I'm so thankful they are my people. #latergram #sixthfifththirdfirst #middaymatineeanyone #projecttime 4d

craftykirsten I'm all about fun and unique family outings. This one tops the charts for both of those....crabbing!! It's not expensive for what you get either. We caught several crabs in each trap we set, then had to throw them all back but one, since you can't keep them if they are under size. The kids loved picking them up a tossing them back out to sea. Better yet, they steam them on the dock and you eat them. We did this at @kellysbrightonmarina at Rockaway Beach, OR. They were helpful and the owner couldn't have been more friendly and cute with the kids. I highly recommend this!!! Porter and Mason were old enough to pull in the traps and everyone was old enough to throw back the crabs. #bucketlist #squealsofexcitement #crabbingOR #Davewashotasacrabfisherman 2w

craftykirsten Way to go Wasatch! Mason's team did such an awesome job in their tournament! I loooooove watching the kids play their sports. I love to see their skills and their love of being active grow. Off the field, Mason is calm, mellow and more quiet and on the field, watch out! He plays defense like a boss and gets up in people's grill like nobody's business. Love this boy and his awesome team. #soccermyfirstlove #soccermom #wasatchsoccer 2w

craftykirsten And hooray for tag along bikes....I can get a great workout and have her with me. When I get tired, I can feel her little legs pedaling so hard and it always helps. She's so cool, and strong and I love to tell her so. #mybestgirl #girlsneedtobetoldtheyarestrongandnotjustpretty 3w

craftykirsten Holy cow, we love the bike trail below Castle Park! It makes us feel like we are deep in the woods of Seattle, ok not really but close. It's so fun to be active with these kiddos of mine (with a few friends always included). Having adventures with these turkeys is my fav. It's awesome to escape for a moment and forget the regular mom duties....disciplining () and keeping everyone on their schedules (and alive) and oversee daily summer chores (😑😑😑) and let's not forget the joys of breaking up fights () FUN is magical like that. #FUNismagical #FUNordieman #FUNtastic 3w

craftykirsten I can't believe Bennett climbed out of this tree without pine gum in his hair, it's a miracle!!! He pretty much won't ride most of the rides at Lagoon but doesn't mind climbing a 75' tree...hmmmm. #packreunion2015 #summer2015 #climbingtrees 3w

craftykirsten #overgramming Thank you Grandpa Russ for building the Whirleygig at the cabin. It houses my favorite childhood memories. It was built decades ago and still works like a charm without squeaking and without needing to be fixed. Grandpa Russ was an inventor and he always used to say about every creation he made, "It wouldn't dare not work!" #summer2015 #packreunion2015 #cabinlove 3w
  •   onecharmingirl That looks sooooo fun 3w
  •   speakmichelle Fun! 3w
  •   hurricanehymas I love this!!!! You are like him, an inventor! 3w

  •   anasteinfelslund I'm getting sick just watching this! That means my kids would LOVE it! 3w
  •   racheljblanchard I remember this about your grandpa ️. You and Heather always talked about him :) You definitely have some of his crazy mad talented genes. 3w
  •   jillnbone Awesome!! 3w
  •   kristy.hahn Oh that looks like fun! 3w

craftykirsten Oh the pictures I could post from this weekend. I've never been so grateful for my family. Every single one of them. It was like Heaven on earth being with them (and wish Andy & Kristen and their family could have been there too). Even though there were crumbs everywhere and we were a little bit squished, it was pure Heaven. So thankful for the cabin that late Grandpa Russ built so long ago to help all of us make memories with our families. If these walls could talk....oh the stories they would tell. #happyandfullheart #packreunion2015 #summer2015 #cabinlove 3w
