Weezer tonight with our friends, who we had a total blast with! It was seriously one of the best concerts we’ve ever been to! All of the boys had fun together and at least loved one thing about it, so I’d say that’s a win! 😃 #Weezer
We are so sad EVERY time we leave Austin! It always feels like we are leaving our home. We hope to be back permanently someday. This is the only place I’ve ever felt we could really settle down. ❤️ #weloveaustintx #keepaustinweird
We love visiting the beautiful Caprock Canyons. It’s one of the best kept secrets of the #texasstateparks. 🌅 @texasparkswildlife
By a recommendation from a friend, we traveled to Brazos Bend State Park this weekend. We didn’t know anything about it before, and now it’s one of our favorites. We can’t wait to come back when it’s cooler and stay for longer!
I found this shirt at Target and could not pass it up. For the past few weeks, I’ve become a vegetarian. I didn’t all-of-sudden say I’m going to be a vegetarian. It’s happened over time. I started getting disgusted by eating meat off the bones (even mentioning it is making me grossed out), then it progressed to questioning where all of these meats are coming from. And I finally started excluding them from my diet one at a time. I don’t know if this will last forever, but I do know my body feels really good and hasn’t felt this good since I did a round of #whole30. My gut doesn’t feel bloated, my head feels clear, and I don’t feel so groggy. I’m starting to explore different foods, and even tried the sofritas (tofu) at Chipotle (SO GOOD) and veggie enchiladas at Chuy’s 🤤. I’m not sure how long I’ll do this, but I do know I feel great and will stick to it until it doesn’t. 👍🏽 ❤️-Kristen

From alligators, swamps, going to church and running into the most random people we are connected to in some way (it happens all over really in our LDS community), meeting up with our dear friends, the Longneckers (@tinyshinyhome), being out in this beautiful nature- I just don’t want to forget this wonderful Sunday. I’ve (really me AND Paul) have been in such a funk lately. Making decisions is one of the heaviest worries for us because we just don’t want to make the wrong ones.
I haven’t been able to get this quote out of my head since my husband sent it to me on a day that I just felt so overwhelmed: “Instead of excessively worrying over a decision, decide what you’re going to do, then do the things to make it the right decision afterwards.” I just wish it was that simple sometimes!! We are constantly worrying about making the wrong decisions right now, and I think it’s caused us to not enjoy where and what we have right at this very moment.
Today was such a wonderful reminder to enjoy RIGHT NOW. To enjoy the little things, like my wonderful boys who won’t ever be this age again, and running into friends that mean so much to us. I see so many of the tender mercies in my life, and I hope I’ll never forget this day as one of those blessings.
My view today. ❤️ These adventurous boys have my heart.
Lupe Tortilla (holy cow this place is GOOD), the Children’s Museum, driving by the Houston Temple, of course Buc-ee’s, and staying at the BEAUTIFUL Stephen F. Austin State Park— We only got a TINY taste of Houston this weekend and can’t wait to go back! ❤️
Good morning! 🌞
1) The bike hooks are installed! We don’t have to untangle our mess of bikes anymore!
2) This is our projector screen, and we’ve been testing out a projector from Paul’s work. So far so good!
3) I installed the ladder to the side so it’ll be easier to get up on the roof. 
4) Nerd 
5) We are getting the last of our stuff packed into the trailer and will be off to a campground tomorrow! I’m a little nervous but more so excited to settle in to something I’ve worked so hard on. I sometimes wonder how did we end up here and why are we doing this, and then all of the feelings of traveling full time the last couple years come flooding back and I breathe a sigh of relief. I feel how right this is. I feel the difference I’m making in those faces I get to kiss everyday. I feel my brain release stress and worry. I feel the love from a community I cherish so much. I feel so many good emotions that I’ve never felt anywhere else. And then I say a little prayer to make sure I never lose this excitement. ❤️
