For us, this was the optimal feeling of what getting in the wilderness is all about. It felt like the perfect weekend outside...Blue skies, sunshine, time with the people we love the most just enjoying the simple pleasures in life!
Hiking has always been something the two of us have loved to do together, and still love to do! It just looks a little different these days. What used to be the two of us hiking 15 miles a day through the desert and rugged terrain has turned into shorter, mini hikes with our babies in tow....but we are so happy that we are still able to get outdoors and hike some of our favorite trails and explore off the beaten path - our favorite way to adventure!
We've been talking about taking our littlest guy on his first overnight camping trip for a long time now and with a warm weekend weather forecast we decided it was finally time to try it! We packed up what felt like the whole house and headed down to one of our favorite spots where we could enjoy the sunshine and let our kids play in the dirt. Don't be fooled by this first picture, it was within ten minutes of getting to our camp site and he's already covered in dirt from head to toe 😉
We're still here! Took a slight hiatus from blogging while we welcomed our new sweet babe and adjusted to life with two babies 😉 Even though blogging took a little back burner, we still managed to get out a few times with our kiddies this winter and felt like these little adventures needed a permanent place on our blog. Especially now since winter feels like it is in full force with snow pounding the nation, we wanted to reminisce on warmer (well... kind of warmer ) times!
Camping and hiking with toddlers. A lot of people can feel overwhelmed with this idea so they opt not to do it... but if you're prepared and plan your trips out well ahead of time it's so fun to make these special memories with kiddies outdoors and give them new experiences.
