When our oldest was three, we spent a lazy Summer afternoon next to a mountain stream. It wasn't unlike all the other times before or since then except that on that day our son caught his first little frog. 
I can still hear the excitement in his voice as he came running towards me, his hands carefully cradling the tiny captive. It was a moment of perfect wonder that I know now was just the beginning of a lifetime of discoveries. 
Today, our oldest is eleven and while many things have changed in life I'm grateful that the magic of these moments has always stayed the same. 
With Summer now fading I'm hoping for a few more moments like these. The kind you can look back on and smile knowing it was just one in a string of magical things that were shared together. #tbt

I had so much fun working with my boys to design some branding for their business project. I can't wait to see what they do with it!

1. Snails are one of the oldest species in the world and can be found everywhere. 
2. They are hermaphrodites capable of laying and fertilizing eggs all on their own.

3. During the winter snails will hibernate beneath the ground. 
4. The slime of a snail protects it as it as it travels. 
5. To eat snails grind their food with a radula which is basically a tiny tongue with thousands of small teeth. #inspirecuriosity #naturestudy

On an impromptu evening outing this week we found these amazing plant fossils. They are from the Mississippian (roughly 350-320 million years old) period when the area was covered by a warm shallow sea. 
Can you see the stems and leaves? There's so much texture preserved in these specimens!#utahoutdoors #rockhound

1. As they grow, fiddler crabs shed their exoskeletons in a process called molting. During this time they are able to regrow missing limbs and claws.β €
β €
2. Males are recognized by their one large claw that they wave about to attract females and to defend themselves. Female fiddler crabs only have two small claws.β €
β €
3. In the wild, fiddler crabs will dig burrows in the sand up to two feet deep where they rest during the day and hide from predators.β €
β €
4. Fiddler crabs are scavengers that delicately sift through the sand for their food.β €
β €
5. You can find fiddler crabs along the inter-tidal zone of beaches where they are most active in the early morning hours.
