Gibbs the Black Bear - he is with us because he was fed by humans as a baby. He became acclimated to humans and would not survive if released into the wild. Please don’t feed the bears!
futuremakerslv encourages kids to think outside the box, providing a variety of classes like art, music, and dance. We adore their free kids yoga on the lawn every weekend in front of mothershipcoffee. Also, watching the little wiggly kids try to lay still in shavasana is the cutest thing ever.⠀

It’s a sunny day at The Discovery. A perfect day to climb the clouds!
I've never considered myself a lake girl. ⠀
Growing up in the Midwest we had lots of lakes.  I enjoyed playing in them as most kids do but I never loved it.  I did not like that I couldn't see the bottom and I hated the feeling of the fish and  plants drifting around my legs. ⠀
But if the lakes of my childhood were like this I would definitely reconsider.  Lake Tahoe gets me every time.  With that crystal clear blue water against that mountainous backdrop I start to rethink the lakes of my youth.  If this was the lake of my childhood I would definitely be a lake girl!⠀
Took a fun family trip out to the Seven Magic Mountains today. Hot weather, but cool photos!

🏔 Great Basin National Park 🏔
Wow. This National Park is UNREAL. I had no idea what to expect, but it blew us away. The kids happily did a 4.1 mile hike with 2 alpine lakes and Bristlecone Pine Grove. Every step felt like a dream.
