Today we spent a few hours touring a family-run, organic, grass-fed cattle ranch. It was fascinating for these city slickers and I loved that my boys were able to make the connection between the food they eat and where it originates. But I have to admit, seeing all of those adorable calves running freely with their mamas sure made me consider vegetarianism again.
threewildthings : @babybluewren Yes! We tried to make the most of spring break (on a budget πŸ˜‰) and look for some adventures that were either completely free or as close to it as possible. Surprisingly, we found quite a few! And this gorgeous weather has surely cooperated with us! Spring is so beautiful in Northern California. Wow, I had no idea. Back to reality tomorrow. 😩
threewildthings : @postale_tres Your comments disappeared?! But, yes! I don't blame your daughter one bit! I love me some meat from time to time, but gosh, my heart sure hurts thinking about the process to get to that burger on my plate. πŸ˜₯ It surely didn't stop my boys from gobbling up all the BBQ samples they laid out for us. 😳
babybluewren : πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ Your reality looks good from here! 😜😁
threewildthings : @babybluewren πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
postale_tres : My phone😞it's been freezing up I went to add something else and I deleted by accident! The moment passed quickly with herπŸ˜‚ it's great how you have so much to do and see there!
leahsunshine : @threewildthings oh man this made me so happy, and so sad at the same time :( bleh. I'd love to take the boys there!! Can you text me the info about the place? :) β™‘ I miss you!
leahsunshine : Was it Marin sun farms?! @threewildthings
shosh_barb : I watched a YouTube clip on Temple Gradin presenting a humane slaughter house. While I appreciate the good work she has done, it broke my heart to see a worker hold a baby calf's head in his hands before applying a fatal surge of electricity to its temple. Life snuffed out in an instant. So I'm back to vegetarianism again. πŸ˜€

Life sure is good when you're three and five and still look this cute in a bathing suit. #springbreak

leviandmarley : I've been craving that towel for over a year! Seriously think I need to make it happen! Dreamyyyy! 😍
threewildthings : @leviandmarley With as much time as you and Levi spend at the beach, it would be perfect for you guys! It's such a great size and shape -- we love it so much. Very practical and cute and fits everyone on it at once without being too bulky to fold up and lug around! 😘
lica765 : I love the towel! Where is it form?
leahsunshine : Wait, that's a towel?! How marvelous! @threewildthings p.s. they have the most gorgeous skin.
postale_tres : Cute shot! Yes me too where's the towel from😝
threewildthings : @lica765 @postale_tres It's from @thebeachpeople. It's a fave!
threewildthings : @leahsunshine Yes! A giant towel that can fit a family of 5 on it. Cool, right? And thank you! I love their skin too. Especially when they have those golden tans by summer's end. 😝
postale_tres : Thanks friend!

Exploring rustic missions, eating great Mexican food, mint and chip ice cream drips and driving through wine country. Is this really a Monday? I'd say spring break is off to a very good start. #sonoma

We sat at child-sized picnic tables and ate warm sandwiches made with fresh cheese (as local as it gets and straight from the black and white cows slowly roaming the hills behind us). We fed ducks, counted vibrant wildflowers and soaked in all that California sunshine under the bluest sky I've seen all year. We haven't been on a vacation in a very long time, but I swear, there are days so beautiful, you feel like you're vacationing in your own backyard. #springhassprung

threewildthings : @jojodaly Aw, thanks my friend! I really love taking those type of pics too! When the boys cooperate! 😝😘
threewildthings : @babybluewren It really was! Sunshine just makes everything better! 😁😁

I always have these fantasies that all three boys will wear coordinating pastel outfits and go the whole day without a single stain on their shirts, smiling straight into the camera for photos, arm in arm, without having to be bribed with Easter candy. Instead, the little one would rather check out what's going on to his right, while the middle one refused to wear the "ugly" pants I laid out for him this morning and the big one wants nothing to do with this matching, photo-taking Easter nonsense and pretty much disowned his family for the day. Yep, nailed it. #momgoals #mybunnies #happyeaster

threewildthings : @cathymah Thank you! And yes, what is it with older boys hating the camera? Mine is the same! Haha. I feel I only have photos of my youngest these days as well. 😝
threewildthings : @lightlovers You are sweet! Thank you! They were great sports in the end! They are really are sweethearts for tolerating all my photo taking. Hope you had a wonderful Easter! 😘
threewildthings : @reikitrainingclasses Thank you!
threewildthings : @brilu Haha! My bribes aren't working as well as they used to either. They want money now! πŸ˜‚
threewildthings : @babybluewren I know you can! Boys don't seem to want to stand still for more than a millisecond, right?!? 😁😁
babybluewren : πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ true! But they still look handsome as ever! 😍😍
marydoodle20 : So cute! Where are their sandals from? @threewildthings
threewildthings : @marydoodle20 Thank you! They're from Zara last summer! 😁

When you call all around on Easter morning searching for a last-minute egg hunt for your boys, but can't seem to find one, you take matters into your own hands, hide coin-filled eggs around the woods and watch the wonderment and innocence of childhood unfold before your eyes. Pure magic. #happyeaster #muirwoods

Having boys, I feel like every week I have about 10 mini-heart attacks when someone inevitably ends up getting hurt. This time it was a fall from the monkey bars at the baseball field. Face (mostly chin and mouth) first, straight to the ground. The result: a split lip, lots of screams and tears, blood all over his "good" sweatshirt and one panicky mama carrying him back to the car, missing big bro's game. Today, he's as good as new, but I swear, I age a few years in the process every single time.

jojodaly : oh my goodness just reading this makes my heart pound! so glad he's okay (and shopthewildthings will help pay for your boy mama therapy bills to recover from these things)πŸ’™
postale_tres : I hope he's feeling better.😊
threewildthings : @brilu Thanks my sweet friend!
threewildthings : @lica765 Luckily in the end it was just some minor cuts and bruises! 😁
threewildthings : @rydernhunterworld So true! Boys are not easy on the nerves at all! 😩
threewildthings : @jojodaly Haha! Right? Or all the drinks I'm going to need to calm my nerves. Kidding, kidding (sort of). πŸ˜‚
threewildthings : @postale_tres Yes, luckily it turned out to be just some minor cuts and bruises. I think I'm just a big wimp. My kids are obviously much tougher than I am. 😁 With 5, I'm sure you've been through so much more! 😝
postale_tres : Yes but I'm still a wimp too!πŸ˜‚
