Our Life On Purpose

We have 940 Saturdays until our kids graduate from high school and go on to college. That's 18 summers to make the most of our time with them.

Every year, we make resolutions to be intentional. Eat less, exercise more, get up earlier etc. We want to live our life on purpose, be intentional about parenting and being together and make family our favorite thing.

About two times a month we send out updates in our newsletter about what we're doing. We'll be creating our own resources on how to get more out of your family time, so sign up to be notified when they're finished.

Our Life

We love family time, and though sometimes that means we have more mess than we'd like, we want to share our journey with you. Follow along as we share our favorite experiments and experiences as we try to make every moment count.

Though the days are long, the years are short.

It’s the little moments that are passing so quickly. The ones I am trying with all of my might to lock away in my memory forever and not be too distracted to miss. • I’m grateful for the way this little man loves with all of his heart, just like his daddy. And the way he loves his Mama something fierce too. • Each day that passes is a day of new changes and stages, but I’m glad that he’s still little enough to snuggle with me after a long hard nap️. • What are the little moments that you are cherishing right now? •

The keys folks. They are beautiful. Really really beautiful. We enjoyed the sunsets and sunrises while visiting Bahia Honda and Sunshine Key Rv Resort. So incredibly blessed to see what we’ve seen this year.

What you see here is no accident. I removed the knobs to keep these from getting bumped and letting propane into the cabin. Crazy thing happened tonight – check our story •

Hiking Mesa Arch & Whale Rock in Canyonlands National Park

By Joseph

This might be the shortest video we've ever produced. Coming in at just over 7 minutes, you can watch the entire thing while waiting for your eggs to boil (or something else in that time frame). Anyway, In this video, we went to Canyonlands National Park, and hiked Whale Rock. Whale Rock was SO FUN. The kids were free to scramble up the rocks, so that's exactly what they did.

Bonus was that at the top of Whale Rock, you had a FULL 360 degree view of Canyonlands. This place is stunning. Thanks for watching! Please give the video a thumbs up if you enjoyed it!

Arches is such a magical place. When you drive through it you feel like you are on another planet. • We didn’t get a chance to hike to all of the arches, but we did get to do a whirlwind tour of quite a few. (Swipe to see them all). • Fun fact: is the longest arch on the planet! • 1) Turret Arch and Window Arch. 2) Double Arch 3) The Three Gossips 4) Landscape Arch 5) The La Sal Mountains
