Erica Lineberry didn’t set out to climb 5.11s until the end of her pregnancy. But she surprised even herself when just a few days before giving birth to her son, Canaan, she climbed a clean 5.11, big belly and all.
Somehow early on in my interview with Mark and Brooke Stephens, I managed to stump Mark with a question I thought he’d have an answer for, ready to fire. He runs AdventureParents.com, after all, a “source for celebrating the amusing, yet frequently trying, lifestyle of being a parent… who’s doing what they can to raise some outdoors-loving kids.” It’s likely not the case that he had never defined what he considered to be adventurous. It’s just that we don’t often take the time or have the opportunity to articulate something that our lifestyles simply embody.
I truly wasn’t sure whether or not The Adventures in Parenthood Project would take off, but I launched it, fingers-crossed, committed to moving ahead no matter what happened. In the week that followed the launch, I received emails from all over North America showing interest in the project.
I am so excited to announce the official launch of the Adventures in Parenthood Project. In this 2-minute video I introduce the project and the inspiration behind it.
