Follow us on Instagram!Happy belly. Happy life.For his 3rd birthday all he wanted was bike time 🚲 The sweetest day for the sweetest boy I know. We love you C-doo! Happy Happy BirthdayThey are makin’ some big plans out there and I think it’s going to end with Cedar stealing all the marshmallows. #natureplay #getoutside #ourlocalplaygroundMy girl fishes in off the shoulder dresses 👗 🎣 💥Dear body, I’m sorry I have said and thought so many terrible things about you. You give and give, I take and take. You have never let me down and I still call you names. 8 weeks ago you birthed a human in under two hours. Yesterday you ran 5 miles, today you ran 5 more. You’ve birthed three speedy times without any medical intervention or pain medication, you’ve been making milk for babies for 7 years, you’ve run marathons, hiked one of the tallest mountains in the world, climbed thousands of feet, biked and hiked hundreds of miles, backpacked, swam, surfed, skied, dove, lifted, traveled, held, carried, kissed, hugged, and healed. You have done ALL this and I still say you aren’t tight enough, tall enough, small enough, fast enough, smooth enough, strong enough, perky enough, pretty enough, bikini-ready enough... well enough is enough. It’s taken this 3rd pregnancy, my awesome birth and my speedy recovery to finally realize how amazing you are. So guess what? I am DONE (finished) thinking shitty things about you! I am sooo tired of hating you. If this is what a body looks like that can do and give ALL OF THIS then you are PERFECT. I love you and I am grateful for you. However many pounds you still carry from this last pregnancy are just fine. I promise to get off the scale, to nourish you and to continue working on healthy relationships with food. And you just keep doin’ your thing ok? Maybe if I start loving you more we can keep all this great stuff going another 50 years. Whattaya say? #effyourbeautystandards #bodyjustice🌟Shiloh Jasper Sedivec 🌟He finally has a name! Sweet Shiloh is 1 month old, 9 lbs 7oz and faring well in a busy and noisy home. Life with three is tender, exhausting, perfect, hilarious and overwhelming. I don’t have enough brain power or arms to meet everyone’s needs, it’s full on, I need a shower and a HOT cup of coffee but I am in love with this beautiful headache we’ve created. Caring for these peanuts is my greatest privilege and I wouldn’t have it any other way. Thank you for joining this crazy crew of ours Shiloh. We love you. (Cedar wasn’t interested in being in a picture today so it looks like we have two but I swear there are 3 😂)

Parents are often reluctant to take their child on multi-day visits to the backcountry. On the surface, I can understand their concerns but when I dig deeper it’s more often assumptions and irrational fears that keep a family inside. Hopefully this post will provide motivation and tips for outdoor sleepovers! Continue reading
This year, our annual take-the-kid-summer-backpacking-trip commenced with much less anxiety than our first trip of this kind last year. Instead of worrying about all the possible accidents that could get us stranded in the wilderness I instead remembered the serene isolation, satisfying physical exhaustion, and the uninterrupted time together. I was delighted as we stepped away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life and into a simpler, quieter world. Continue reading
Today we spent over 12 hours packing. Yes, it really took over 12 hours and we don’t have the kid to blame.
I don’t know why I was nervous. The backcountry is about as uneventful as a place can get. In all the miles we covered the most exciting thing that happened was leaving Sage’s wipes by a log and trying to figure out how to change future poopy diapers with just a few squares of toilet paper.
